Off the Beaten Path
Soladain 10 Yarthmont
Camping in the ForestAfter having found the edge of the forest and the northern highlands, the Grey Company decides to pull back and set up camp in the forest, hoping the surrounding trees will afford them some manner of concealment. They find an adequate spot and set up camp.
That evening, under the protective blanket of Remar's Mystic Mist, the camp slept peacefully until some Goblins approached and scouted the camp. The Goblins were cautious and stealthy but were quickly noticed and Marcel and Draven were able to run them off easily by using spell and intimidation, though the rest of the group was awoken. After the incident, Griffin had trouble going back to sleep so Draven assisted him with some of his magic.

Into the HillsThe following day, the Grey Company reaches the foothills of the Black Peak Mountains, the central range of the Altan Tepe Mountains. Almost immediately the going gets much more difficult. The Company still plans to skirt around Verge and head into the mountains in search of the secret destination that their tapestry is leading them toward. After only traveling a few miles through the hills, the Company has to stop to camp and they are lucky enough to find a comfortable spot.

Hearing some wolf howls nearby, Griffin and Marcel decided to head out and do a bit of scouting the immediate area in search of any dangers or other interesting finds. Draven says he will remain in the camp and attempt to teach some of the younger Company members academic skills like reading and writing. After a short while, Marcel and Griffin spot a cave mouth up on the side of a rocky hill and try to find a way up to investigate it.
