Our heroes leave town with a plan to sneak into, and eliminate a bandit camp.
Along the way they engage a rather Large boar in combat. Nisl disapproves but aid them all the same. After killing the boar they cart it along with them, tied to the top of the wagon.
Nisl disguises himself as a bandit and drives the wagon into camp, drawing out all the bandits. The heroes launch a deadly surprise attack using a whirlwind of objects to hold off the horde of bandits. Silf dances with the wild slicing through for after foe whilst Boden and Savos smash in the skulls of the attack dog like orcs.
Inside the silver mine they find a mysterious fountain which proves to have amazing restorative powers and a giant caged beast.
They immediately engage two foes hidden behind a makeshift divider, entangling them and igniting them, but from the lump of cloth wrapped burning bodies emerges a huge deformed giant like beast. Covered in lump, and blister the beast oozes a pus like substance from it’s skin.
A mighty battle ensues, with severe damage done to it mind by the mighty Proxy. Boden proves an excellent distraction before his dreaded narcolepsy comes into play, allowing the beast to land a mighty blow. With Boden unconcious things look grim. Our heroes draw the beast into a smaller corridor where the beasts size proves to be it’s downfall, it’s effectiveness greatly hampered by the confines of the passage. Morgus lands blow after deadly blow in the creatures exposed flank, whilst Savos’ turtle proves to be a stalwart defender against the creatures mighty strikes. Eventually it falls.
On the way out the heroes free the trapped Ogre and take with them 2 captive orcs.
A stream on their route back had risen significantly over the course of the day leading to some difficulty in crossing, particularly since the flood waters bought with them some rather nasty eels. Luckily Savos steps in and befriends them before they become a threat, but not before Nisl shows off his remarkable physical prowess by jumping the 15 foot wide stream.
They awaken one of the orcs with intentions of interrogation but are surprised when upon waking he immediately thanks them. As the orc explains he and his brethren were under the influence of some kind of mind control, the goddess pan had forced them to guard the mine. The heroes let him, and his one surviving companion free, having made some lifelong allies.
Nisl awakens late in the night to the sound of footsteps outside his door. An assassin enters but Proxy swiftly deals with the intruder. The heroes search and loot the body, finding a kill order from the Thelopian assassins guild and a strange coin. They strip the man and leave his body to rot in a nearby alley.
After a rest, examining the work done to their temple, and recruit a guard to guard said temple they head off in search of that which has been preventing traders from returning.
Along the way they notice they are being tailed by a pack of opportunistic dogs. Savos challenges their leader for dominance and succeeds . The pack continue to follow them and provide them with fresh game.
Then they find the plains. Shattered rock, mighty chasms and a distinct lack of life for miles. The smell of sulfur in strong in the air carried on a cold breeze from the center of the plains.
