Jan 33: Into the Woods, & Thru the Forest to Treethan Mine We Go

  • Still in the woods
  • 30 minutes into the creepy forest and not even half way thru it
  • They see a figure holding a couple of horses, they think he may be Elven
  • They greet him

  • Frea asks him for the horses back, and he complies
  • He is named Drenga Sansfur and has lived in the forest for many years
  • Drenga warns them of an outpost that is heavily guarded run by slavers
  • He tells them of a secret passage way on the north side of the fort
  • Drenga agrees to walk them through the forest, but he will leave once they approach the forest
  • Alren takes a closer look and recognizes Drenga as a Dark Elf
  • Aelar sneaks north to see if there really is a secret passage way, indeed there is
  • He pushes apart some ivy and sees a door which he quietly opens
  • The rest of the gang stealthily join him near the secret passage way

  • Roast beast, dutch crunch, swiss cheese w/ everything, add onions and jalapeƱos
  • Fresh roast turkey, no mustard, w/ swiss cheese add avocado, dutch crunch
  • Pulled Pork sandwich
  • Pastrami, dutch crunch, only lettuce and mayo
  • Aelar recalls something that Raenar mentions: Mirkshave is a shapeshifter, and he works w/ the Treethan Clan
  • They agree that if they feel one of them has been copied by the shapeshifter the password combo is: hippopotamus + Mugwomp
INTO THE OUTPOST
  • Chant and Alren sneak into the secret passage way, and into the outpost
  • They peak into the largest building and see about 15 people in rags, hanging out, eating, etc.
  • They hide in some foilage in the Northwest corner
  • Alren sneaks along side the largest building
  • Waits for the guard to start walking away, throws a rock behind the guard and starts scratching on the building
  • The guard investigates the sound while Alren gracefully slices the guard’s head off
  • Chant and Alren gather the rest of our Heroes
  • Chant, Alren and Aelar investigate the smaller building in the south side

  • Aelar quickly puts on the freshly killed guard’s hat
  • One of the guards turns around and yells, “Hey! What’s goin’ on over there??”
  • Aelar puts his hand up and mumbles something unintelligible
  • The north most guard falls for it and turns around after calling him an idiot

  • The sleepy guards rustle to the door

  • Fortunately, it misses Yurana due to her short yet respectable size
