I ended up taking over as DM of this group. I'm posting synopsis of the games sessions here so I don't forget what happened.
After some difficulties with scheduling for the past couple of months, we're finally back to the adventure! In reality we've had two sessions, so we were back to it a while ago. I've just been lazy about typing up a synopsis.

Yannik Johastra needed some extra hands to repair a fallen arch. He had the stone repaired already, he just needed some folks to hold them steady while he mortared them in place. Fez said they might be able to help, they just had to check
