The party made their way up the ramp carrying the dead Romulox on the back of Thakakhad’s magically summoned horse. There they were stopped by several guards and a priest who warned the party against traveling the city streets at night, and the lord of the Graefmotte’s hatred for elves. When asked about a temple he pointed them to the House of Mourning, a temple dedicated to Velkinous. The party thanked him for the guidance and made their way up the hill into town. Finding the temple sealed for the night the party made their way to a nearby inn and rested for the night. The next morning they woke and took Romulox to the temple to see about getting him resurrected. The Priestess, Madelyn Osterford,explained that she was willing and capable of resurrecting the dragonborn but there would be a problem besides the initially staggering cost.
After resurrecting Romulox, she explained that resurrections in the ShadowFell were much harder to make stick, here in the land of the dead souls moved on quicker and were less willing to stay in the body. Natives called this “Soul Bleed”, where those resurrected could live another 3 days or up to 10 years, but it was not a permanent thing. However, there was a second ritual that could be cast, empowered by holy relics, that could be used to ensure the “Soul Bleed” was halted and the returned character would survive.
Unfortunately, Priestess Osterford had no such relics but she believed there was one in town. A hateful little man who acted as an innkeeper named Edgar was in possession of one. Madelyn believed he was a secret priest to Lord Devious and had been working to counter her temple over the past several years. If the party could obtain the relic she would wave other fees to ensure Romulox stayed resurrected.
The party made their way to the inn of Edgar and Mialee tried her best to sneak into a store room and steal the Relic which she discovered sitting on a hidden shrine to Lord Devious alas she was not able to sneak back out of the room and Edgar attacked the party with several summoned devils. The party made quick work of Edgar and fled back to the temple where the ritual was completed and Romulox was restored.
