Game date: May 7th, 2011
19 Lamashan 4710
Weather: Sunny and cool, a pleasant fall day
- The party aids Chief Sootscale in defeating the interloper shaman Tartuk. Upon his death, the body of Tartuk morphs from kobold to gnome with hair of bright purple (the same color as the scales his kobold form had). The party leaves Chief Sootscale to reestablish control over his tribe – he announces his plan to root out and destroy the rest of the mites still living in their lair under the old sycamore.
- From there, the group heads southwest toward the fort of the Stag Lord, crossing the wide Shrike River at a shallow point on their way.
20 Lamashan 4710
Weather: Cloudy with a drizzle
- At the end of the day, they come upon the hill upon which the Stag Lord’s Fort sits. Woody approaches the fort at night while the rest of the party watches from a copse of trees on a nearby hill. Woody discovers a stone hatch that leads down and (presumably) under the palisade of the fort. He is attacked by undead coming up from the earth on the hillside as he is heading back to report. Several arrows also whistle by in the darkness, but Woody is unharmed and the undead do not follow him into the valley and back to the party.
Current time and location: early morning on 21 Lamashan on a wooded hill about 300 feet away from the beginning of the path up to the fort, and about 600 feet away from the fort itself
