The party spent the next few days resting and planning. Nobody in town was able to identify the wand they found. Tharendell’s master informed them that they would probably have to travel to the city of Greyhawk to find a wizard capable of identifying it. There was some debating about whether they should go back to the monastery, where they suspected there may be more there to discover, or travel to Greyhawk to find a wizard to identify the wand. Eventually they decided to travel to Greyhawk. They spent a day equipping and then headed for the city. The party avoided a few minor encounters on the way, and several days later arrived at Greyhawk. After some inquiries they ended up at the Green Dragon Inn. There they learned a few rumors about the ruins of Greyhawk Castle, a mansion in the woods that the wizard Zagig supposedly lived in prior to moving into the castle, and, regards to their immediate concern, they learned of Klinshock, the Striped Mage, who could probably identify their wand. The next morning they headed to the Tower of the Striped Mage. They found it with no problem. At the door they were greeted by a man who told them to go away, beggars weren’t welcome. The party managed to refrain from getting into it with the man, and eventually, with the help of a nice bribe, convinced him to summon Klinshock. The Striped Mage, in all his gaudy flourish arrived soon afterwards. The party explained what they needed, and the mage gave them a price and told them to come back the next day. They agreed, polled their money, and left. The next day, the ritual with the apprentice was repeated, and eventually the wizard told them it was a wand of paralyzation with 26 charges. They thanked him, gave the wand to Tharendell, and headed back to the inn.
