To start, experience for solving the plot in Chaedsolas,

Everyone had at least one important idea and moment, so I'll make this easy and give everyone 1600xp.

The impostor mayor had a magical ring and several magical muffins (potion-like).

How long Ajax stays and collects fey
Grant will pray for several sending spells per day as needed.  He thinks that they should come up with a series of five or so words that covers major points in Ajax's memory to use as a test when they contact him to make sure he is not being affected by the Fey.  He also thinks they should wait no more than 3 days to Gate the first batch.  He advises Ajax to start to Gate the Fey when 50 or more have been gathered, whether the 3 day time span has passed or not.

This will be quiet the "EXPERIENCE" for Ajax.

The impostor mayor had a magical ring and several magical muffins (potion-like).

Assuming you have three days in which to identify them, here is what the items do:

The ring allows the wearer to cast Blink at 10th level twice per day.  It requires a Sleight of Hand skill check at DC 10 to activate.  Activation is a move equivalent cation.

The muffins are each a neutralize poison, a total of three.

Please. Note how the impostor evaded my true seeing if known. Very worrisome.

He was not using any illusions or spells, he wasn't even the same race as the actual mayor.

You note that Martin is not around for the first few days when you return.  Ellic only says that he is busy elsewhere.

After hearing as much detail as you can give about Scalehome's plan in Cheadsolas and the surrounding area, Ellic starts by saying (after several hours of contemplation).

"This is a massive project they have undertaken.  Many of the communities they have swayed with fear.  I believe that didn't work and couldn't work on Cheadsolas with their Quan Yin bent.  Our envoys had met better results initially I think only due to its location and historical allegiance and connection to the southern forest.  Perhaps there was more.  Perhaps the leaders saw more of the problems that Scalehome and the Fey bring than others.  I am certain they did not fear the voice and his threats as others did."

"This level of operation means that they feel Cheadsolas and its region are important.  If we thwart this, they will certainly take another tact.  I need to anticipate what that will be as we try to undo the damage done to the town.  Will they continue their efforts once they know they have been found out?"

Later, he goes to Rompei and Vor'Ruk, "You never listed a staff that would Transport via Plants among our assets."

Vor'Ruk stands up tall, straightening all 7'6", 485 pounds of orc-cavalier-power.  The finely polished bastard-sword on slung over his shoulder doesn't even come down to his waist.  The LI (Legionnaire Issued) toga looks a little absurd as it is stretched and gathered over his thick broad muscled torso.  He gives a quick Orcish legion salute.. the open flat hand straight, angled up.. representing the upward trajectory of the Empire as the Oldest Orc guides generations improving upon generations.  (quick for orcs)
  " It was not something powerful enough to move armies, It was assumed that your spell casters were a more viable and reliable means of small squad " and he gags slightly  and growls out" guerrilla tactics.  The staff can be used as an asset, and Rom'Pie will give you a overview of it's powers, but as always, our first loyalty lies to the Empire. If need be we will use the staff to return to the Empire.  My light horse Centurion might need me"
