Scouting the Road to Carlshouse

The group was hired by the bear Mr. Barnibarnes of the Felhorn Courier Company to scout a road to the neighboring town of Carlshouse and see if it was traversable by caravan. Being told to assemble in the morning, they spent the evening drinking, getting to know each other, and failing to convince anyone that the bard actually knew how to play her instrument.

Upon gathering the next day, the group was also assigned the chaperone, the sheep Bethrýňňà. They departed and midday came across an abandoned mud hut in a clearing. Deciding to investigate the hut, the group set off several traps, leading to gas leaks, darts, and explosions.

The following day the group happened upon ruins that some lizardfolk were using as a ritual site. The lizardfolk noticed and immediately engaged the party in combat, summoning clouds of fog and even a giant snake. The party took out each of the lizardfolk in kind, whispering malevolent nursery rhymes into the mind of one, and cutting down the others as they fled. After racing to inspect the corpse, Kijani found a gemstone in the corpse's pocket, but chose to keep that to herself.

The final day of their trek, the party spotted a camp of prisoner-taking bandits ahead of them. Choosing to use a combination of illusion magic and intimidation, the party attempted to cow the bandits into submission. Two of the bandits immediately dropped their weapons out of fear, but their captain wasn't so easily frightened. The bandit captain discerned at least some of the party was illusory, and began attacking. The party quickly dispatched the subordinates, as Milicent (known to the group as Flamantha Swarthington of the East Swarthington Swarthingtons) went to check on the prisoners and untied one who professed a wish to help. As Kijani was trading blows with the bandit captain, Fern snagged one of the bandits dropped hand crossbows which jammed in her attempt to fire it. Out of frustration, Fern hurled the crossbow, accidently thunking Kijani on the head and knocking her out. Eventually, the captain was taken out, with Fern, Solstice, and Kijani splitting the gold found in his pockets. The rescued prisoners offered some gold as a token of their graditude as well.

A few hours later the party arrived at the fortress town of Carlshouse, meeting Caelynn the rabbit of the Felhorn Courier Company and receiving their payment.
