The party returned to the Sootscale caverns to camp for the night and came upon NakPik, Ninim’s kobold ally, grieving the death of his entire tribe. the party’s inner conflict boiled over as Caesar, Pointy Ear and Ninim tried to console the kobold, while Tzar’nek and Frank attempted to kill the “vermin” quickly. Eventually, the kobold was killed.
The party camped for the night. During her watch however, Pointy Ear abandoned the party.
The party set out for the Stag Lord’s fort the following day, attempting to attack the fort from behind but accidently treading into the territory of a Worg and his pack of wolves. Not wishing to antagonize the animal, all but one of the party members retreated. Frank refused to back down and once the party were a safe enough distance away, was mauled and eaten by the wolf pack.
At the fort, Rohan managed to persuade the Stag Lord to let him live revealing himself to be a wizard, arguing that the bandits could only possibly beat the powerful group of wizards that approached, with further magic. Using low-level illusions, Rohan “warded” the fort and advised the bandits to stay clear of the battlements to allow the party easier entry.
The party arrived and Silent Foot climbed on top of the battlements and using the sack of dust looted from the kobold witch doctor, created the illusion of powerful magic flying over the gates. Rohan was then able to convince several other fearful bandits that there was clearly no hope of survival. They threw open the gates and boldly ran away. Allowing the party easy access to the fort.
