The clan debated whether to adopt Bornwulf and his kinsmen. Although the Redleafs opposed it, eventually it was decided to adopt them as carls and give them the poor land at the north end of the tula that used to be Eoric Cat-Master’s Stead before the Taralings burned it. Bornwulf’s kin became the newest and smallest bloodline, the Winterlings.
Then it was time to re-enact the defeat of Venebain the Lightfore at the Battle of Thrinbarri Clouds, which helps ensure that the Sky Demons remain trapped in the Cinder Pits. Savan Thundermaker was too ill to perform the ritual, so Gordanger did it instead. The ritual requires Gisli to be dressed up as Venebain and humiliated before an effigy of Venebain is thrown into the Cinder Pits, but Gisli was nowhere to be found. So instead, Veslmus agreed to wear the costume and endure the taunting.
Yaneg took some heat for not keeping Gisli in line. Gisli insisted that he hadn’t gone anywhere, and even though Tryggvi used a spell to force Gisli to admit the truth (which involved revealing that he can turn into an alynx), Gisli used his Convincing Lie ability to persuade Yaneg that he was telling the truth.
Then the PCs went to Quackford and met with Ralf Silktongue, who allowed them to worship at his hidden shrine to Sartar. When the PCs told Ralf that they were Sartar’s descendants, he gave them some advice for how to worship Sartar and strengthen their connection to the demigod.
