From the journal of Xeviouz
Approached by a merchant, try to find a crashed air ship, look for salvage. The intrepid band of adventurers includes myself, Jael a BeastMaster, my trusted friend Vlolkir the Troll Sky Raider, Sandrin the Air Sailor and Duban the Wizard. We all do a little bit of research before we leave. I am searching for info about the area. Dubahn is looking for info on Air Ships that may have crashed. Jael is looking for information on the Fauna that might be in the area. Vlolkir gathers info on Air Ships as well. After comparing notes, we decide on a location to search and try to decide the best way to get there. After much debate on our course, either over the mountains, or over to Sosanopa then down river, we decide to take the river route. We feel it will be safer and faster, and use less provisions.
Pathfinding to Sosanopa is straightforward, no issues, we arrive in 7 days as expected. We are greeted at the gate and do our Greeting Rituals. Jael has some difficulty with his wood carving and is not permitted inside the village. He says he will go hunting and try to wood carving again tomorrow.
THe village has been improved from the last time I was here. Houses being improved and what not. We try to hire a boat to take us downriver, but nobody seems interested. We ask about passing River Boats schedule. We decide to wait a couple days for a River Boat.
The second night, we are invited to dinner. Asked to tell stories about Throal. There is no report of anymore Blood Ravens around the area. Hopefully the escaped Necromancer has moved to a new area.
We are able to flag down a passing River Boat, they will be back in the are in 4 days and give us a ride down river. While waiting, we are hunting for a bear. We find a herd of bears on the third day. Looks like a family, 2 big bears and 3 smaller ones. We are able to finnish off one of the big bears, one of the small bears, the rest run off.
We rest, clean and skin the 2 bears we have and head back to Sosanopa village. That evening he have bear meat cooked up by the villagers and it is vantastic! Next day the River Boat shows up and gives us a ride down stream. We give the boss on board the boat most of the bear meat and he agrees to stop back by the location that he dropped us off in 6-7 days.
We head up into the hills and begin our search for the air ship wreckage. We are set upom by a group of foul mouth harpies. In the middle of fighting the harpies, they look to the north west, scream and fly off at a great rate of speed. Checking ahead of us on the trail Jael says there is a giant rock worm headed this way. We all run. FAST! We through it bear meat and dead harpie so it will stop and eat that stuff instead of chasing and eating us. We eventually make it to safety.
We search for a new path up into the mountains. We find the remains of an old Troll Moot. No signs of life around here. We do find a small cave entrance. We find a small crystall on the ground in the cave. It looks like the same kind of crystal that was on the Rock Worm. Next day we get a ride back to Sosanopa village from the River Boat. Make our way back to Throal with no incident.
