Jolly shifts uncomfortably and looks over at Kroshav before quietly answering Lurn and Jaq.

"Been talking with Dama and... well probably going to head back to Stenrek through Seat. Got business that needs to be wrapped up back in Stenrek."

He clears he throat,

"Gonna follow along with Indra an Celus to Seat." He coughs and continues, "Ain't leaving ya yet but... Thanks for everything. Never woulda made it without you and Best. All of you."

He coughs again and says gruffly,

"Gotta go take a piss."

Before walking off. Dama laughs and smiles at everyone before heading after him.

Kroshav holds up his hand for a quiet fist bump as Jolly passes.

With a very large smile Jaq states, "Don't feel to bad about it Joe... Just think, this library might be the best archeological sight in the whole area. You haven't heard of it, so it's apparently well hidden. This could be a great, random, gift given to us by the trading goblins! And also, It might be a trek, so a few days of travel away from our problems, also good."

"Probably a lot safer than hunting for a hag, one of which apparently overpowered an experienced paladin, while being hunted by a necromancer, too. We'll return to the topic of the hag, but blindly searching for it now would be suicide."

"Sounds interesting!"

((Unless you can come up with a very compelling reason for them to stay they are leaving. Dama, Indra and Celus have no desire to go into the forest with winter approaching.))

Everything is packed and ready to go only an hour after when the party would normally depart. Celus walks around and says goodbye to everyone, spending more time speaking with Jaq, Lurn and Kroshav and promising to ask about them next time he is up this way and gives each a hug, some tears in his eyes. Indra follows after and offers a firm handshake and wishes you well. Dama gives everyone a warm hug and says,

"Pretty sure I'm gonna see most of ya again, just don't get yourselves killed."

Jolly stands a bit back, unsure of what he should do or perhaps unwilling to say goodbye.

"Come now, Jolly, let's try to be glad. You know how hardy we all are, and we know where you'll be. We'll be seeing each other again before long." Though he tries to speak jovially, the large man does have a few tears in his own eyes.

Jaq smiles at Joe's comment, "Joe, I must learn to be more like you and just say the truth with my friends rather than beat around the bush."
Turning to Jolly he then says, "On that note, Jolly, I'm happy you found someone to be with, she is good for you. And I will miss you all. But Jolly, and all of you, if you need to reach me, or any of us I'd say, you can always leave a message at my father's store in Stenrek. I don't know exactly how soon I'll be back there, but that is my family home and I plan to get back there sooner rather than later to check on things." He then gives out some hugs.

Jolly glances up at Lurn and offers a hand, before pulling him into a hug while muttering,

"Ya, ya too stubborn to die. Don't come out of there with only one leg."

Jolly separates from Lurn and listens to Joe before shaking his head and saying,

"Honestly never understood a gods' forsaken word ya said Joe. Thanks for making my trip to those ruins, an all this possible."

He pats Joe fondly on the hat.

He, and the rest, nod to Joe's instructions and return hugs. Jolly says,

"Got things to do in Stenrek... I'll check with ya dad when I get back there."

He looks to Kroshav and offers his hand.
