The party was assigned to find out why a small town suddenly became xenophobic. After a small tussle with some bandits they made it to town. After splitting up they eventually found the cause. A robe worn by a chef hired by a local nobleman.
After delivering the robe they went back to find the bandit’s hideout. At the entrance they found a hidden cache that contained a strange crystal. When the witch touched it it started to spread a strange ice-like effect along her arm. This even turned a nearby fire into a fire that burned cold. They soon stopped the effect by applying the gel and started exploring the hideout. Near the back they found a locked door to a cavern.
