Having found the glade which had attracted Bridget, the party made camp and waited for the new moon in 3 days. That evening, there was an attack by an owl bear which proved to be a useful food for the coming days.
There was a few days of relative peace but on the last day the Great Woods decided to show the party a taist of what lives beneather is canopy. First there was an attack by a pack of Krenshar, attracted by the smell of the ripening owlbear corpse. There horrable vistage proved to be too much for Milah who bolted into the woods only to return after the battle was over.
Near noon of the same day a pair of Pixes came and toyed with the party some. They proved to be little more then pests which soon grew board. It was around this time that the fay plants began to revive, by nightfall they were in full bloom. Early in the evening Iryani envestagated a noise near the camp an found a pair of Almiraj fighting over territory. Having desterbed the contest he became the target of their rage, at least until the Hodag showed up.
The Hodag, lived up to its rummers as a preaditer of the woods and attaced with little fear of the group faceing it. Though it inflicted harm on the party, there number proved to be an overwhelming force an soon beat it down.
At this point the night was falling and a odd peace fell over the glade. The night grew darker and the fire seems to do little to keep the night away. The darker it became the quitter the night was. One by one the stars slipped from the sky until there was nothing to be seen. The world fell away and all that was left was the glade. A soft snow began to fall, and the night went on. More snow and more time. Time seemed to slip by but the night never did. Adventuly the darkness slipped back and a new sky of stars appeared. The snow never stopped, the stars didn’t move and the party waited for dawn. A dawn that never came. It wasen’t until the moon raised a 2nd time that they realised something was different.
With this realisation coming over the party and a debat of what to do next, A figure was seen drifting in the woods. A dryad by the name Lost Branch stumbled across the party and came to speak to them. She told them of where they were and of where they needed to go. She told them about the laws and about who they should speak with. In the end, she left them to the night and left on her own surch. The night was cold and dark, but that would not change. The party gathered there things and left in surch of “The Way” not knowing what the fay held for them.
