Dawn of 3rd White River
Defeated and demoralize from the traumatic ambush, the loss of one of their own consumed the group with paranoia which had them act swiftly by relinquishing their hold of the temple and have them all head to Crag taking everything they could fit in the sledge and wagon. Shayline returned to ranger headquarters immediately to report the onslaught and make a plead for troops. For the number of troops she was requesting it was suggested that theGeneral of Stahlheim was the person to ask. A lengthy travel would be initiated once they awoken.
Evening of 11th White River
Shayline felt it appropriate to first have a meeting with Granyt, explaining the grim circumstances that has recently befell them. It dawned upon them that it would take some time to get an audience, heading back to the inn for the day

Engrossed with other significant duties, the group knew some time would be passed until they could successful converse with the General. Shayline went to the library to find builders less inclined towards violence, miraculously finding some in the premise. These scholarly Builder suspected their return was for the Crysarium in the region itself, mining it to fuel their equipment. They seem reluctant to teach Arc fire training based on the destructive nature it possessed, yet some good news manifested in an old friend, Jav-rasn, in the area. Rorauk went to the Highwall shop to get his Dwarven Crossbow modification, encountering Kirth Highwall praised for his work in Dwarven Crossbow and other customizable add ons. Startling was how he reacted harshly to his appearance. Seeing the young Fyrforg with an Eldakar mistress instead of Gritta his daughter and to everyone in attendance surprise his betrothed . Chaos reigned when Gritta made a coincidental entrance, frozen in place for seeing him. Profanity was thrown at Arianna who composed herself while Rorauk ignorantly claimed to forget about her and his promise. Enveloped in sorrow she fled away in tears, Kirth ready to take his head for this slander. Rorauk was faced with a choice. Leaving Arianna behind dumbfounded and dishearten from how easy it was to abandon her. He went after his Gritta. Brogan demonstrated his valor, endorsing himself as a famed Ironreich warrior to only be so lucky to have her hand in marriage, showcasing an agenda of his own discord. Arianna and Brogan both followed Rorauk to the park, witnessing him wooing Grietta in a matter that bewildered them simultaneously.
Rorauk made an exceptional declaration of love to her, displaying his affections publicly with Gritta suggesting a wedding in the spring. Brogan counseled the Eldakar with alcohol, making both head straight to a nearby tavern with the enormous Ogre parked outside unconscious with half a barrel of Dwarven spirits. The night ended with the majority minus the Aevakar and Brogan drunk with even the composed Arianna breaking down and sobbing to the druid who seemed a little too enthusiastic over the outcome.

After copious amount of alcohol, romance, and disappointments, everyone headed out in the morning to meet the General. Generously offering a Company of well equipped Dwarves to the group, they went back to the Builder Scholars to figure out the best course of action to reclaim their compatriot since all tactics lead the possibility of getting demolished. Amongst all else it was decided to split the group off, Shayline and Geppert to talk to these Builders and the others awaiting the company.
20th of White River
Arriving back in Crag to instantly get the horses and because of it reach the temple midday instead. They found a barely alive Murvoth after examining the totaled temple, shapechanging into a mighty bear to carry him. The orc was very malnourished, covered in excess bruises, and unconscous which required carrying him. Geppert built a sturdy drag to help carry him, advancing to the Slatespirit Inn to keep him warm for the night. Shayline beseeched for the power to give him a greater healing and was rewarded for her efforts healing his battered and abused body.

In the morning the trek was begun back down to Stahlheim to let the others know Murvoth has been found.
28th of White River
The squad reunited gathered the new company of dwarves assigned them and started strategizing and training, trying to determine how they would take back their temple. Brogan striven to test the mettle of this union asked Kirth Highwall about his daughter and for his blessing, feeling obligated to get her a better suitor amongst all else. It was a win-win situation for her, gaining a dwarf of proper status.
