Coming up on the forest edge they spotted a large frog looking creature sitting just outside the treeline, with a closer look they identified it as a slurk, soon arfter the slurk jumped over a bush and into the forest, quickly followed by a high-pitched squeal, as the party snuck toward the giant frog they spotted two kobolds which the slurk had surprised and was currently in the middle of devouring.
After a quick fight they party killed the slurk and captured the one still living kobold, when the kobold didn’t answer any of their questions and began fleeing, Faelan cast a sleep spell on him and bound him with ropes, during the night the kobold tried to escape the bindings only to get knocked out by Caladrel.
The morning after they tried talking with the kobold again but to no avail, afterwards Arianah cut the ropes and let the kobold run it’s separate way.
As they continued to explore the narlmarshes, Arianah spotted something metallic amidst the leaves before them, they soon discovered this to be a bear-trap that had been laid out, Arianah dismatled the trap and they continued their search.
Within a few hours they stumbled upon a dear trapped in another bear-trap, the party had a quick discussion whether to kill the dear and eat it, or if they should set it free, much to the displeasement of Chuck they set the dear free, still bitter about the dear Chuck and Arianah continued the argument, but soon after a metal “click” sound and as they turned their heads they saw the dear stepped in another trap and was tumbling to the ground.
Disappointed in the deer, Arianah agreed they should eat it for dinner and they made camp.
After getting something to eat they decieded to spend the rest of day finding a dismantling the bear-traps in the area, and after looking around for the rest of the day they had dismantled all the trap, or at least all they could find.
The party then proceeded to explore the narlmarshes for the next couple of day, until they ran across a small group of sleeping kobolds, when the party approached one of the kobolds spotted them and quickly raised spears in defense, while the party tried negotiating with the kobolds, they weren’t listening.
After another quick fight the kobolds were slain, leaving only one alive, upon inspection they found the kobold to be a member of the sootscale kobolds, but it seem to think itself better than it’s chief, as the party threatened the kobold into telling what it knew about the lost idol, Old Sharptooth, it told them that mites took it, and that they could find them half a days travel southward.
Sparing the kobold, the party set out towards the mites, with a quick look around the old sycamore tree standing on the hilltop they found a small wooden door, Chuck kicked open the door and the party entered.
Inside they found a cavern inhabited by mites, as they fought their way through the cavern they faced off against the mite’s leader riding a giant tick, after a fierce battle with the creature they managed to fell the tick and it’s rider.
Seeing their leader fall before them, the remaining mites laid down their arms and the party ventured deeper into the cavern, there they where attacked by a huge centipede which managed to fell both Arianah and Chuck, with most of the party fallen Faelan began retreaing, not wishing to die more than once a week, but before Chuck lost consioucness he manage to land a solid hit on the centipite, cutting it in two, but having suffered heavy wounds during the fight, the effort of his attack took his last energy and he fell unconscious.
