Returned to Temple in Town, found infirmary full of insects and rats, only patient was the first mate.
Pulled first mate out into main room. Tried to wake up Sister Clara, but door locked and no response.
[Bard] and [Barbarian] looked at sarcophagus in crypt, old paladin with sword and shield.
After waiting for dawn to arrive, we saw that the insects and rats turned into patients in the infirmary – including the dead corpse Billy.
After talking to Sister Clara about this, went back to Inn to sleep for a few hours, then [Sorc] and [Barbarian] stayed in common area of Inn. [Sorc] combed over the Ritual Book found in the mines to figure out the spells being used. [The Bard] journeyed to Billy’s Funeral.
The spell was found, it involves casting a spell on a small insect and then giving it a target. Once the insect burrows into the target it lays a spell causing him/her to turn into a swarm. This swarm can then bite other humans causing them to turn into swarms after the next New Moon who can infect others, after that all infected turn every night from 3AM – DAWN.
A reversal spell was discovered between Sister Clara and [Sorc] which included an “arcane containment” ritual and a holy cure ritual to be cast at the same time. However, this would require an amulet assumed to be with the original caster – Gruul.
