20 miles from Silvermont the party entered the foothills of the Valthune Mountains and as the forest started getting denser, I felt worse and worse as the day wore on. Surely the rats had given me some filthy disease when they bit me deep. Late afternoon, we entered an area abundant with fungus, “Dazecaps” Vash said they were. They had apparently eaten an entire tree as it lay in rot and ruin in the center of a clearing, covered with the fungus. There were Giant ant hills nearby and soon the ants showed themselves, and attacked us for entering their areas. I got bloodied pretty fast and twice I was grabbed in the mandibles of the beasts. Raggar registered the first kill, And Mort scored the first double kill of the day. Mort got bloodied twice, Many ants died, many more came from the hills. Vash got bloodied twice. I got covered in acid. Hermes got grabbed and released and then bloodied. The battle was afoot indeed. There was lots of missing on our parts, as surely someone didn’t want us to kill ants. Raggar then got bloodied. Mort assumed the “Form of Mountain’s Thunder” and became VERY strong, with lightning and thunder echoing from each blow he struck. Raggar went unconscious and I stabilized him 3 separate times, as he continued to wither away from the acid of the beasts. End of battle. we were pretty beat up. sunset came I found us a nice campsite. Vash and Mort found food to feed the party everyone helped me out and soon the fever was broken and i felt much better. A centaur named Jakkeme showed up during one of the watches, it was late, and I slept through most of his talks as I was very tired and exhausted and worn out. He said something about stirges, and dire wolves being nearby. he said the fey gate was reachable, but very dangerous.
We leveled to 2 – 1050 xps
he confirmed rumors of Kalyxa Dramon had offspring, many things killed by poisonous green dragon breath.
we break camp at dawn, and there was rustling under the brush. 3 dire wolves attacked. Mort had (5) rolls of 1. we were able to dispatch two of the wolves quickly (the third ran away) and were able to recover 2 hides we could make cloaks out of. I gathered teeth and claws for my anklet. we were able to get meat for 2 days. we cooked it before we broke camp. we are stocked now, with meat, and roots and berries that Mort/Vash gathered earlier.
