We last left our intrepid adventurers standing outside of a well fortified roadside inn. They entered the inn seeking shelter warm beds and hot meals to sooth and nourish their injured bodies. While there they sold off the weapons and armor they had looted off of the bandits, as well as discovered the bounty that was on the bandits. After resting the night they, save for Kodger who stayed behind still recovering for his injuries, traveled back to the sight of the bandit attack to recover what they could of bandits as proof so that they might claim the bounty. Upon returning to the inn they received letters of credit for the city watch of Irondale in the form of chits for the bounty. After resting for another night, they departed the inn with their newly acquired wagon and two mules to seek out the bandits.
After traveling most of the day they reached the site of the bandit attack and followed along the tracks left by the bandits in the snow, when they fled from the adventurers. They made camp a little before midnight, and part of the way through Kevalmin’s watch, they were attacked by the spawn of a vampire. Which after some fierce and quick fighting, turn gaseous and ran for safety. The party pursued the gaseous cloud, losing sight of it when the forest grew denser. They followed their tracks back to their campsite to continue resting before continue their search for the bandit’s camp.
An hour before dawn they were attacked by a small band of gnolls that were part of the bandits. Kodger was severally injured in the attack, but the gnolls were defeated quickly. After some healing and some food, camp was broken and the search was continued around noon, the party was ambushed by some large snow spiders, that did a number on Kevalmin, who was so enraged at the spiders that he could not contain himself and proceeded to fly in a mighty rage smashing all of the spiders that he could see. After wards he climbed up one of the trees to get a better lay of the land. He could see that the group was more then half way through the forest, and the hills and mountains to the east and the road to the northeast. with the exertion of the fight and his rage, he didn’t have the strength left to climb back down safely, so he tied himself to the tree so he may rest with out fear of falling from the tree to his death on the forest floor below him. While he was climbing the tree Kodger and Sheeva each harvested a vial of poison from the spiders.
2 suits of leather armor and 1 suit of studded leather, 2 greataxes, 1 short sword, and 1 composite shortbow, 2 vials of snow spider poison (Fb pg 155).
