What’s this? The traitor and the locals are headed to the Cuddly Snake Inn? Are they going to turn the little thief in or run the bounty out of town? I know what I’d do. They’re not even talking to her? Ugh! Oh, there we go, she’s giving them another poster and the hobgob is nodding. I don’t think they’re going to do it. How boring!
Back to the Take. What are they Doing in there? I hate boarded up windows. Gathering up the horses now. I think that goblin’s probably the little thief, or maybe it’s the walking goblin, never can tell with magic. They’re skipping town? Cowards!
What? Why are they going to the off road? Walking, along the river? Just take a boat if you’re not going to take the roads. Gotta be careful, stay far enough back. At least there’s only two horses so they can’t outpace me. I should have packed better, no telling how far they’re going.
Toads? They’re on the riverbanks because of toads? If I hiked all the way out here just to watch them kill some freakish toads!! Oh, what’s this? It worked?? He just… he made an echo! It looks a little small, though. But it is an echo! Oh, they’ll be so thrilled! And it’s gone. That wasn’t much of an echo. Now they’re cutting out the tongues and chopping off legs. Well, gotta eat something in this wasteland, I suppose. Maybe I can get some of the leftovers when they move on.
Ugh, so boring, but at least they’re still heading north and I didn’t waste my time. Not a simple hunt, they must be running for sure. It’s just a little gnome and dwarf, they could have taken them. Dynasty cowards.
Lighting a campfire at night? In this wasteland. That’s just asking for trouble, and it looks like trouble has come calling. Fortunate that they passed by me first. Keys? they’re looking for keys. Good job I didn’t have any, I guess. Oh, of course, now they’re fighting. I guess the hobgob doesn’t like unhinged cultists talking at him. Guy didn’t even move forward. Shot him anyway. Another echo! This one’s big! Hasn’t quite got it down right, but it’s fighting without him being outside his tent with it. That’s some control at least. They were harmless, well, for monsters. Two down, and three running away.
Spooky little gobbo keeps pointing at the hobgob, I guess he has keys. The Many? What are they even talking about? And why? Just kill them and be done with it, you start a fight, you finish it. He’s just babbling about keys and prisons and going away. That drow fellow is far too reasonable. They didn’t even kill the orc they downed. Put his own friend on the fire, well, I suppose he was mostly burned up already. Note: don’t make the creepy gnome mad, he shoots sticky fire. Now they’re talking religion and redemption?! And off the crazies go, into the night. Easy prey, but not worth the trouble.
Finally! A town! Map says Jigow. Interesting place. Houses on stilts, major trade hub it looks like by the amount of docks. Bet they’re happy the toads are dead. A festival, eh? This could be interesting. Easy to stay out of sight in the crowds. He is such a rube, can’t he see those goblins are just getting him to do their harvesting? Who can do it fastest? You probably, but you’ve convince all these folk to do it for you. Nice grift. Pie eating contest? Of course he going to stuff himself now. Hobgob won, tied with another human, and a halfling. Pathetic.
Wonder what else they’ll get up to, that swim in the river looks a bit dangerous, I swear I saw a shark fin.
