Gold Lion Patch
The party first encountered the Gold Lion Patch (also acknowledged to appear closer to a Golden Gryphon) while searching for stolen, raw magical ingots in the Spider Forest. On their way to the Spider Forest, the party was stopped by a group of humans, who seemed to wish to prevent them from recovering the ingots first. Upon defeat, the Gold Lion Patch was found on the person of one of the thugs.
After having recovered the ingots, and on their way back to Talopram, the party was again ambushed. The leader of this party fled on horseback, but one of his lackeys also had a Gold Lion Patch. Rendelsham was brought the patch, who did not recognize it, but suggested the party ask around town to see if anybody recognized it.
