What Happened

- The party had to cast their vote that night for one of three candidates.
- Maester Koening (Ricky) discovered the former lord Lassister was more than likely rigging the vote.
- Lassiter was not comfortable with his lead since almost everyone in the party voted for Winters. So he had his men attempt to rig the election again.
- His men were caught in the act and were either killed in combat by party members or Maester Koenig had them executed during the promotion ceremony for Winters. The maester has the bodies flung (or buried) over the north-side of the Wall.
- Maester informs the party that he received word by raven that the original group of Brothers have been killed during their pursuit of Mouse.
- Commander Winters leads the party and two squadrons of Night’s Watch Brothers north to chase down Mouse, the man who killed the last commander.
- The large group find an empty wilding village. The party discovers a blood trail leading north. The party splits, as half stay in the village to make camp and the other half follow the trail.
- While the blood trail party is deep in the woods following the trail, those remaining in camp get ambushed by raiders.
- Commander Winters get dies by a burning arrow through the throat. The raiders are driven off but not without losses and injuries taken on by the Night’s Watch.
- Lord Desmond (Nick) receives a burning arrow with an attached note telling him to meet someone at a designated location or his men can expect more attacks. Desmond heads out, leaving orders to break camp in the morning and head back to the Wall.
- The blood trail party run into some Wights during the ambush back at camp. When they return to camp, Desmond is already gone.
- Morning comes, and Desmond has not returned. During the night, some men have disappeared and the bodies from the battlefield are missing. The Brothers break camp and haul ass for the Wall.
- Meanwhile, Desmond meets a wilding shaman called Burning Arrow whose body is severely scarred from burns. He speaks in riddles, visions, and talks of The Flame. He leads Desmond through the woods where they come upon a river that is rather warm. After crossing the river, the ground caves in and Desmond falls and lands in a network of caves and tunnels.
- After many hours of searching for a way back up, he stumbles across the large skeleton of a dragon coiled around 3 eggs.
- Desmond takes the eggs, finds a way out, and heads back for the Wall.
- Back at the Wall, Maester Koenig learns that the bodies of the executed men are now gone.
- Seeing the Wall in the distance, the retreating Brothers run into the men that should be dead… they are now Wights. None of the Brothers live to tale the tell.
- On his way to the Wall, Desmond sees where a large battle took place but cannot find any bodies… but he does see a lot of burning arrows.
- Upon returning to the Wall, Desmond informs the new Commander, Cotter Pyke, that he is the only to survive. He keeps the discovery of the dragon eggs to himself. Commander Pyke sends Desmond south on a recruiting mission for Eastwatch-by-the-Sea.
