Because the party arrived to their home base Town of BlackMoor proper, they party decided to go through the unique evolution of HackMaster, going to school to level up. It entails one week of school per current level of experience plus 1500 gold pieces per level.

Elefus raised to a 13th level Cleric (with the title of Abbot). He also took a few extra weeks of schooling in the Blacksmithing, Metalworking, Basic Armor and Shield Repair to the Journeyman status, he can also teach apprentices those subjects.

Elefus also incurred another incident while training. The result of a roll indicated his residence OR that of a relative was burglarized. Since it was an "OR" statement, I judged it was a 50:50 chance either way. Another die roll indicated it was a relative. Since Elefus was an ORPHAN, this meant his only known blood relative was his child for which his DIVORCED wife had custody. Since he paid rather handsomely for the settlement he was not too displeased. (The amount taken was only 38 percent of his ex-wife assets, so she was still filthy rich so his Daughter "XENA", would still have a comfortable upbringing.

Slade Wilson raised to a 4th level Bounty Hunter. No further incidents.

Honda Raised to an 8th level Daitai Samurai, without incident.

Although Huang was completely destroyed, the party had taken the precaution of taking a DNA sample before departing on the previous adventure so he could be resurrected. Since there were no Clerics of Huang's religion present of sufficient level (14th or better). They had to substitute a cleric of another religion from the official Blackmoor Church of the Facts of Life for which the costs were doubled for non-members.

Also since Huang was not alive when most of the experience points were accrued from the Sea Monster, he was not eligible to raise a level.

Numrendir was raised to a 7th level Conjuror. Although his reputation had to be repaired to get out of the Dishonorable category beforehand.

Kmaregh was not raised however, as he has fallen into the Dishonorable category. He needs to commit an act of heroism.

Bane was not raised. His Player has been around frequently enough to not to be forced into NPC status. Expect him to appear Tomorrow.

We left with the party debating on what to do next? They settled on an expedition to Vyet Naaam to find the operations manual (and warranty) for the Freedom Bells.

Due to the absence of some former Players, if they don't show up soon they will have to be converted to NPCs and earn experience points at half-rate.
