After leaving the temple in Jhods hands our heroes traveled farther into the forest to continue their surveying of the the region. Two days into a new area the heroes must continue to deal with Bastion’s growing water obsession and the appearance of another giant frog. Without seemingly any reason why the party begins to viciously attack the frog. Others, cough*Bastion, decide to take a swim, unfortunately it the giant frog seems to have had a friend. Though Re, Lin and Maz attempt to pull Bastion from the water he is eventually pulled down. However shortly after the party allow the giant frog escape Bastion reemerges from the water with a small head wound. Later the party encounters Garuum, a boggard, who attempts to bribe the party with shinny stones to leave his “kingdom.” Our heroes reach a peaceful agreement with boggard and then depart, though his connection to a “bad woman” wearing a hood who left a piece of smooth greenwood matching the frog and eel ring is disturbing. Later our heroes discover an ancient statue to Erastil, cleaning the statue seems to bestow a blessing on the weapons of those who assist. As our heroes debate what to do next they come across the trail of what must be dozens of mounted men, very heavily laden though we don’t know with what, heading out of the forest.
