    Everyone gears up for the excursion to the forest, purchasing whatever supplies they need before heading out. The trip is not terribly long or difficult, the rutted logging road being fairly well maintained, and you soon arrive in the forest. The trees, tall pines and spruces with groves of aspens spread through out, seem tranquil for a place where so much trouble has origionated.

    Using the map, you are able to locate the nearest place where one of the forester teams was killed. The area shows the signs of long work. Tree stumps dot the clearing, and the ground has been rutted and packed hard by the wheels of timber wagons. Here and there, however, one can find signs of a struggle. Tools scattered in haste and not recovered lie here and there next to partialy cut trees, and dotted about the clearing can be seen evidence of bloodstains.

    Liam looks over the area of the struggle, searching for footprints of whatever made the attacks. If he finds anything he will alert the others to it's presence.

    After a few minutes searching the ground for tracks, Liam doesn't find any distinctive footprints. The ground is covered with wheel ruts and plenty of human footprints, but finding any other sort of tracks will take either more time or alot of luck.

    Meanwhile, the only thing visible in the woods beside the trees is the occasional bird or squirrel.

    "As good as patience is, I doubt it will get us far here. Let's continue eastward. However, if we plan to provoke them, let's stay close together." Liam concentrates for a split second on protecting his allies, and a weak protective aura begins to emit from him.

    As we head toward the caves, Zerkz sings loudly (and badly) a rowdy bar song.

    I found one to teach
    me the way of the city

    The party treks eastward towards the cave entrances. The forest seems fairly normal, with the simple sounds of chirping birds and chattering squirrels and chipmunks. Everyone make a Spot check.

    OOC: Avatar, the Last Airbender, sung by Uncle Iroh during the first season I believe. Possibly second season. I believe he was playing a mandolin like instrument at the time.

    Yeah, pretty much. I can't wait for Zuko to start teaching Aeng firebending. That seems what the series is setting up for right now.

    "As enjoyable as songs may be, I'd prefer songs by somebody other than the tonedeff giant who only knows the songs he learned in bars." Notes Liam, covering his ears as he speaks. "I think you may be trying to irritate the wrong people."

    Edit: Can I have that be a listen check instead? [/joking]

    You spot a small mole burrowing up from underground in the brush. It looks fairly normal, until you see its beady little eyes take on a silvery glow.


    Everyone can now make Listen checks if they want (although you may want to fail them to try and block out Zerkz singing).

    Listen = (1d20+2)[5] Minus any negatives for the singing.


    The dwarf reaches into his pack, and comes out with a small ball of cotton, which he separates and shoves into his ears to block out the singing.

    The big warrior stops singing and holds up a large, gnarled fist signaling silence and caution.

    Mark that creature... We're being watched, gents, and I think I was right before- there is something more than meets the eye going on here. Some sorcery...

    He indicates the strange mole in the bushes.

    Quickly, somebody smarter and faster than me, snag it before it gets away and reports to its master.

    Kardrak stops his humming and stands ready, bringing his arm back to throw his handaxe if he so needs.

    "A mole? Overly suspicious there, friend. Still, better safe than sorry. I don't qualify as "fast", by any means, so someone else should do that.

    Now that Zerkz has pointed it out, the mole is readily apparent. The little animal is sitting inside its hole with only its head and shoulders above ground. It looks rather ordinary, except for the silvery glow coming from its beady little eyes.

    Kardrak'll gradually move to get behind the mole, and cautiously motions with his axes for the others to do the same.
