    Renard leads against a tree, mopping sweat from his brow. Marching in chain, even of elven make, is not easy work. He's about to voice his displeasure when he looks up and really sees the waterfall for the firs time. It's truly breathtaking, and it serves as a reminder of why priests of Fharlanghn travel the lands. Out loud he only says "What a lovely place. Which way from here, you figure, lads?"

    Stenly spots and examines the scene with a scowl, his fists on his hips.

    He agrees with Renard. "Yes, I can see this gods-awful place for the foul, corrupt and blighted land it is. Obviously no place so unnasuming could really be safe, eh?"

    He grips at his weapons and then pokes around in his pack. "So. Who's hungry?"

    Adomourne whines for the hundreth time already: "Are we there yet? Can't we take another rest? Surely a seventh time isn't that much? For a mage like me-" and he doesn't finish his sentence. The landscape is breathtaking, and silentle he watches it. It seems like an eternity he and the group are standing, enjoying the view on the waterfall and the beautifull works the water and gravity pull off.
    Finally, two of the group begin to speak, and so pull him out of his trance.
    "I agree on having some lunch, maybe drink some water too while we're at it." Adomourne says. "After that we can build some kind of shelter and wait for the night, yes? Keeping on going is reckless. As for the destination, I suggest we continue to the southern side of the lake, to the undergrowth there, but, as I said, not until tomorrow." he looks around the group, waiting for approval.

    Renard smiles and nods at Stenly. "This land may hold corrupt creatures, but it will endure long past the corruption itself. Kingdoms rise and fall, and this land will still be here. But I do go on. Yes, let's set up camp and have something to eat." He glances at Adomourne. "As for our path, I have no problem with that suggestion."

    Camp is set, and Stenly, Renard, Adomourne, and Daniel take turns keeping watch while the others rest from the hike. The next morning dawns late but clear, rapidly warming as the sun peers over the mountains that shroud the high river valley.

    Daniel leads the way down the side of the hill and up again along the sheer south face of the reservoir above the falls. From up close, the narrow but useable paths along the cracks in the face are evident. So, too, are some trampled plants that indicate something has been by this way.

    Stenly enjoys some breakfast and grumbles about there not being any beer. He wanders a bit from camp, however, and can be seen near the waterfall, apparently mingling with a number of small animals - who seem to tolerate him more easily than the rest of you.

    Note the above relative to the possible cave.

    The local wildlife--a wood thrush and a pair of sparrows--are rather chatty and willing to tell you all about what they see from above. There are frequently scaly men coming out from behind the waterfall, but they mostly stay close to the river and do not bother the little birds when they fly away to the forest. There are also sometimes hairy men and orange men who come from the hole to fish, and they sometimes fight with each other.

    The gnome walks about for some time, whistling and cooiong and softly cajoling several birds while alternatley slithering about on the ground and climbing up trees. For the uninitiated, it's a comical sight.

    He returns happliy, however, and dusts himself off in satisfaction.

    "They say there are scaly men who might live behind the waterfall who mostly stay close to the river. There are also sometimes hairy men and orange men - I dunno - orcs maybe? hobgoblins? who come from that hole to do fishing and fight with each other."

    He points toward important features as he talks.

    Renard nods as Stenly relates what his woodland creature friends told him. "The scaly folk are probably the troglodytes we seek. The others...I'd like to avoid being caught between competing groups, but maybe they'll weaken each other..." He looks at the others as he trails off.

    Stenly, Adomourne, and Daniel take cover as Renard prepares himself with spell and bow. The attacks appear to be coming from a narrow cleft between the falling water and the damp rock cliff behind the falls. Another two arrows lance out from the dark spot; both deflect off of the invisible swirling forces that surround Renard.

    The gnome grins and watches a patch of trees closely. He waggles his brows in good-natured excitement at his companions. "Let's rush'em!" he says clearly. He then vaguely wiggles his fingers off to his left... and the sound of heavy plodding feet emanates from that direction, rushing up the hill to flank the attackers.

    He then brings his bow back into line to loose at the first sign of movement.

    As Renard and Adomourne move forward and the sound of additional troops comes from the downhill side of the falls, the shadowy figures look spooked. They fire another round of arrows, all of which sail safely over Renard's head, before vanishing back further into the dark recess behind the falls.

    Stenly's shot in the dark strikes home. There is a cry and then a thump from within as one of the figures collapses. The rest flee into darkness.

    Being the closest, Renard picks his way forward to examine the scene. The hole behind the waterfall is a tunnel in the damp and slippery stone, while the enemies were firing from a narrow, slick ledge jutting out just a couple of feet from the cliff. The one who was shot moments ago is a pale-skinned, hairless human whose pallid flesh is covered with crudely stitched goat skins. His hand-made bow lies just out of reach, but given the pool of blood under him and the trickle coming from his mouth, he won't be reaching for it again.
