Adran shakes off the first set of travelers and decides to try and contact the next set that he sees in the distance.

The pair seem happy to move along, the girl not taking her eyes off him until they have passed some yards away. The young man casts occasional glances back as they put some distance between. The other, much larger group of travelers, begins to hurry towards them. The distance takes some time to cross, so they run into the pair out of hearing before. The couple tries to walk past, but then seems to recognize one of the members, a redheaded woman. The group is rather eclectic. There seem to be several adults and some children among them. The redheaded man has the look of a woodsman, he and the smallest child... or perhaps a halfling? move past the couple and await the others. The woman speaks to the couple as Adran takes stock of the others. There is a man with long dark hair tied behind, standing with a blonde woman. Near them are a pair of young people... or... no, that squat shape was a gnome... and the other might be a young woman... but the mace on her belt argued for either a very short human, or a considerably tall halfling...

You see what could only be described as an elf child approaching you.

But as the details resolve, they don't fit with a child's description. Yes it is short, and slender, but the "child" is covered in adventuring gear. Pouches, and weapons.... something is amiss.

You are greeted in Elven: "Hullo!"

[The small figure has run over to Adran from the rest of the group, which is still about 100 yards away]

So, there are a couple of options for getting him back with the party. A quick overview of what happened for the character might help the segue.

Adran met the group on the road (after being oddly transported to a strange, foreign land). He traveled a short while on the road where they found a woman (named Maria) weeping over a grave. Her son had been killed by a creature in the night and the party offered to help. They stay the night at the farm and meet her husband Ontash and her other children. Late that night the farm is approached by several normal wolves and a Wolf-Man creature. Adran and several others guard the bottom floor of the farmhouse form inside, but the party members on the roof kill some of the wolves. The wolf-man climbs to the roof but is injured, falls off and flees.

The next morning, the group sets off to follow the trail to find him. Adran and Cal (a gnome illusionist PC who had become inactive) elected to stay behind to protect the farm while the others investigated. [For Adran I used the excuse that he finally found the tome and scroll he had searched so long for. For some reason the book that would not open before can open now]. The rest of the group finds and slays the wolf-man, but before some of them return to tell the farmers, Adran and Cal have gone. [For this I said that they observed something unusual in the woods near the farmhouse and went to investigate, and not returning by morning.]

In game-terms that was 3 full days ago. Perhaps the simplest explanation would be that it was some illusion or imagery that might draw him out (like an appearance of an injured Aglos or the like). He goes to investigate and gets lost in the woods. The day wears on and he finds an encampment of gypsies. He stays in the camp and they agree to guide him to Skald.
This might be a good moment for fortune telling or the like from them.


As for getting him back to the group, that's fairly simple. They were all headed towards the town of Skald, and would have told Adran of their plans. They also would have told him they were planning to stay at the Broken Wheel inn, and would be meeting a girl named Akriel at a place named the Old Kartakan Inn on Sunday (today in game time).

We could have him either:
-meet them this morning at the Broken Wheel,
-run into them at the Old Kartakan inn when they go to meet Akriel

Thoughts?

I could have Adran meet the group at the Old Kartakan Inn. The backstory could be that Adran was going to meet them at the Broken Wheel, but along the way one of the gypsy wagons broke an axle. Due to this, it took all night to replace the axle and get on the road.

That works. I'll write a brief montage to get you to town that will have some fortune-telling details in it (things that may be of value later).

Anything he would want to do during that time, such as peruse the now-accessible volume, or prepare different spells? [his armor spell is still in-place]

As much as Adran wants to pour over the now accessible volume, he will memorize magic missiles and web first. If time permits, he will then read the volume.

....he places high priority on his self defense, so the volume must come second until spells are memorized!

Sounds good. I'll try to write something to get him through the montage into town today. The party is still at the other place at the moment.
