Synopsis (provided in field report form by Jeremy/Asher)
REPORT FROM THE FIELD
TO: ORACLE SIMEON, AMBASSADOR TO THE KEEP OF SPELLS
FROM: DIVINATOR ASHER CRYSTALTREE, BROTHER OF CRYSTALHOLD
In the month of Marpenoth, the Fellowship of the Grand Tankard traveled to Sendrin to investigate a reported lost temple. Upon arriving, we found that a second group ("The Red Cloaks") had also arrived in town for that purpose. Their job assignment appears to originate from Ravens Bluff, although there is some speculation as to its legitimacy. I informed the leader of the group that no non-Savrans had any claim to the contents of the temple and that they were not to enter the temple grounds. Further discussion of the matter was requested for the morning.
The false leader broke his word and attempted to enter the temple that night. Fortunately, the Fellowship intercepted them. Single combat between myself and the leader of the Red Cloaks was determined to settle the matter. With the skills of Savras, I was able to defeat the noble.
Inside the temple we found the head of a large statue of the All-Seeing. Upon touching the relic, I was gifted with a vision. It was of similar content to the earlier vision we discussed...a battle, a dancing woman. Using the bag of holding, we have collected the relic for transport. I feel that this is a true relic of Savras and is suitable for veneration.
In addition, several treasure items were discovered in the altar, which have been duly logged. I recommend that these items be given to the Fellowship for their service. The relic of a lost temple is of far more value to our faith than mere coins and treasure.

DM's Note - This session saw Kenon kidnapped and presumably returned to Thay by agents of his father. Also, Raethe returned from Ravens Bluff with a new party member, Strom, half orc Priest of Torm.
The temple guardian, a vengeful spectre, used the power of his undeath to drain the life force from several party members. Lady Shera and Alark managed to shrug off the effects, but Asher was unable to fully recover.
