The Assignment

While on a mission to collect plant life on Storm Island, DRACO, Zilis, Salix, and Svamp are met face to face with a pack of angry Gnolls. Are the gnolls defending their home or is there something else that they want with these intruders.

Mission Summary

  • When we left off, the party had entered into an under construction village in the middle of the Storm Island Jungle. The village appears to be made out of natural wood, no custom processing, and thatching for roofs. On the ground, there appears to be traps set up.
  • From across the river, a pack of gnolls sent a warning shot of an arrow towards the DRACO’s Roc familiar. The party must decide how to proceed if this turns into a fight.┬áTo delay a fight, the party closed the front gate and barricaded it and prepared for the possible siege. However, it seemed like they were aiming for a fight, so the party pressed forward with attacks from behind the cover of the wall.
  • The Gnolls took out Roc and announced that they will continue to fight if that is what is wanted, but they are not here for the party.
  • The party agrees to parley. While they are coming to an agreement, Salix notices there are people hiding up in the big tree behind the village. It appears they are Fey. DRACO intimidated the Gnolls to just leave without a compromise. However, they seem to be very mindful of the tree behind them.
  • Once the Gnolls leave, the people from the tree travel down to meet up with the party. They do appear to be fey.
  • Exploring the area, they see that the river forks with most going down the river, but part of it going underneath the tree into what appears to be a cave system.
