The party snuck into the gnoll camp, and discovered they were keeping goblin slaves. They discussed the situation, and decided it was too late to find some other place to rest far enough from the gnolls camp.
The ambush began with an arrow from Ahli. The gnolls expected any attackers to use light at a much farther distance, and were unprepared. The pack’s leader enlarged himself and struck a powerful blow at Faeron. Faydra also had a potion to enlarge herself, and used it to match the leader’s power.
After striking down the gnolls, there was some discussion about what to do with the freed goblin slaves. Eventually it was decided that they would be let go, but it was made quite clear that any attempt to return to this place would mean death at the hand of Faydra. The goblins took several gnoll corpses with them as food. The party then moved a small distance away for the battle, and made camp in a nearby location.
The next day’s travel was uneventful, they reached the small community surrounding the hunting lodge on Fangwood’s edge late in the evening. The community itself is quite small. Colin requests lodging and drink for the company, and is offered beds and locally distilled whiskey, in gallon jugs. Faydra wasn’t prepared for such strong spirits, and drinks heavily its not long before her and many of the locals are passed out.
The next morning is breakfast and discussion. It seems that the first trading caravan for the year and hunters for the hunting season are not expected for a week. They’re offered hospitality to stay, but Ahli prefers to continue. They hire a man to continue with them, and return to the lodge with a report if anything happens.
