I swear the innkeep tried to poison me with that liquor. He didnt count on a clan hammerblow dwarf. I may not be the drinker my brother is, but I won that contest handily.
The others found a wizard in town. He may warrant visiting later, as time allows. They had brought back a rubbing from a stone, one that belonged to the holds. Neither I nor my brother recognized it off hand, but it was definitely from the holds. We managed to deflect questions from the others, but this wizard.. he’s going to have to account for this. Is he involved? We’ll find out one way or the other.
We headed out to the dog man of the fens. Unfortunately, we were not the first to find him. His dogs weren’t much help against the gobbos. But our blades were. We sent them back to their gods. We found a stash, presumably dog mans. He must have been surprised, as he didn’t have time to pull this short sword. I’m not sure it would have helped.
One thing is for certain, these gobbos have no intent on hiding their prescence. We followed their tracks back into the woods, eventually finding their cave.
I was able to sneak into the cave, but someone managed to alert the residents.Rats. Everywhere.
The others in the party proved their worth. The elfish lady with the wolves… doesn’t talk much, but does manage to clear a room when provoked. Without her help, I’m not sure we would have made it. We may need to keep her services beyond this immediate job.
The cave was littered with the remains of rats and gobbos. Not sure which was worse. I have a feeling that this is not the end. The cave extends further into the hills….
