In-game description[edit | edit source]

The pitch:

Items in italics are quoted directly from the game.
Among the Kind Wayfarers, in the event that a member of the order dies of natural causes, it is customary for the paladin to request burial in a dangerous place that is difficult to reach. In fulfilling their lost comrade's request, the other Kind Wayfarers forge new paths that others may more easily follow.

When the elder paladin Adrem Delfar died, his brothers and sisters set out for Redflower Lake in a remote eastern part of Readceras, but they never reached their destination. With so few Kind Wayfarers left in that part of the Eastern Reach, the order has reached out for assistance in recovering their comrades and helping see them to their resting place.

The conclusion:

Items in italics are quoted directly from the game.
The road to Redflower Lake turned out to be even more dangerous than the elders of the Kind Wayfarers had expected. They believed that the attack against Adrem Delfar's funeral procession had been carried out by ogres. Instead, [Companion Name] and the Kind Wayfarer initiates discovered eotens, twisted two-headed ogres of incredible size and ferocity.

Recovering the paladins' bodies was costly, with five more initiates dying in the process. In the end, [Companion Name] and seven Kind Wayfarers reached Redflower Lake. There, they held a service for Adrem Delfar and the others that died to make their way to the summit.

On the way back down, the initiates placed marked cairns along the trail to indicate when it had been cleared by the Kind Wayfarers - and at what cost.
