The Graul family “home”, Sat mid-morning December 8th 4708AR
After dispatching mammy the party clears the house. Upstairs in nothing but junk strewn about the attic, a rancid bed room, traps and a small amount of coins for the trouble. The basement is more exciting… with it’s skinning room, shambling mound, donkey rats and half ogre keeper. Oh and the treasure chest the mound seemed to be guarding.
After dispatching the muddy guardians of the Grual family fortune the party heads out to the barn. Kib, ever faithful bear companion, who left to his own devices outside wandered to close to the barn and got killed by the three young Gruals inside. The party quickly descends upon them with mighty hurty vengeance. Of the three only one makes the dash to the back room where “Biggun” is unleashed upon the party. (Biggun being a spider the size of a Volkswagen Beetle). Ysuelt sprints past the spider to block the last Grual’s path to his prisoners, Mrow engages the spider as Kloq takes up a position behind it (courtesy of Ysuelt’s Fly spell), and Etina leaps with super monk action avoiding the darting limbs and sticking webs of the spider. The party beats down spider, the last Grual, and frees a couple of black arrow prisoners.
Kajsa blows up the still, setting the barn ablaze as the rest of the group set some fires in the main house area. The party heads back to Turtleback Ferry, rescues in tow.
Turtleback Ferry, December 9-10th 4708AR
The party spends some time recovering along with their Blackarrow refugees. At the end of the first day Jakardros (Jak) informs Yseult that Vale and Kaven will be heading south to see about getting a message sent for aid, and perhaps some more supplies since what Turtleback has to offer is rather scant. On the 10th Kajsa takes to the air to recon the Fort and the dam. She sees perhaps a couple of dozen ogres in each place, and signs that they are attempting to weaken or destroy the dam.
The next day they head up to the fort, Jak in tow. After a brief look see they decide to infiltrate the damaged fort through the shocker lizard caves, their initial entry covered by a fog cloud created by Kajsa. Inside the caves they find an old cache of weapons protected by oil cloth, a cave full of score and a half of shocker lizards that led into a basement cell area. 3 prisoners lay in the darkness and Jak calls to Valeros as we end the session…
