DnD Encounters: The Elder Elemental Eye, Firefly Games Lexington SC
The Hills have Eyes (Week 3)
After surviving the ambush at the river, the heroes start their journey into the badlands south of Easting. The area has very difficult terrain, a combination of deep ravines, rocky slopes and short thorny bushes. The terrain is so perilous, it takes the heroes most of the day to transverse the land. Near twilight, the party runs across a rather dour galeb guhr. This small elemental is a hermit and complains of all the “softies” that have been in the area recently. These softies include several insane dwarves who were headed toward the Teeth of Ghaunadaur and a second party of dark skinned, pointy eared softies. He also believes the crazy dwarves may be responsible for the disappearance of another hermit, a human named Malgrym. The heroes are given directions to Malgrym’s hut and they head that way. Unfortunately, it is now past dark and the party stumbles right into the middle of a drow camp! They are ambushed by a male drow, a female drow and two dog sized spiders. The fight is brutal with several party members failing unconscious. Alaric was slain in battle with the male drow. Once the drow party was slain, the heroes find a book in encrypted elven, a magical axe, wand and amulet. The heroes take a rest in Malgrym’s hut and continue their journey.
