Monday, 9th Jan, 1510Edit
A small creature drops off some meat as tribute to the party during Jaromir's watch, but runs away before Jaromir can see. Jaromir casts an alarm spell around the camp then wakes up Pharis. Pharis checks the tracks and confirms it was a kobold.
Pharis then spots another chunk of meant 40 feets away. A further 50 feet away is a third chunk of meat. The party consider this a trap and don't trust the meat. Jaromir and Grimes head out to investigate the trail of meat. 300 feet away they find the last pieces of meat on top of 3 snowballs. Grimes is certain there is a trap and circles the pile from a distance. Grimes the climbs a tree and moves though the canopy above the last piece of meat. He starts playing with his own ropes and trying to figure out the trap.
Meanwhile Jaromir casts his bones to see the intent of the the gift, and is told "Trust Brings Friends", so just walks up to the meat and collects it. A Kobold comes out from a nearby bush and nervously gives Jaromir another piece of meat. Grimes climbs out of the tree and talks with the Kobold, Floogal. The Kobold praises them for killing a "Biiiiiiiiiiigone" aka a Giant and the "Big Dogs" the Gnolls. He wants them to kill the "Flying Silver Fish" aka Sleet the dragon. Floogal also explains where Sleet's lair is and that is where all the treasure is.
Grimes and Jaromir return to the tent. Grimes claims that the Kobolds see them as gods and the meat is their tribute. He then tells Kel William the intel. Kel Williams needs to know the number of Gnoll left and has Grimes question Floogal further. Floogal says there are many Gnolls. The dragon's lair is 10 days walking (at Kobold Speed) away. Floogal indicates that Sleet is 90 feet long, including tail.
The party tell Floogal that they will light a blue fire at the top of the Gnoll Tower when they are ready to fight the dragon. Floogal warns of Giant Gnoll spell-casters that hunt Kobolds for sport, who can summon ghosts from trees.
The party then set out for Treasure Town.

There blizzard is back and the party are stuck in their tent.
Tuesday, 17th Jan, 1510Edit
The Blizzard ends. Jaromir detects magic on the living trees, and finds a very slight fluctuation in the fields of magic around these trees.
Jaromir gets the impression that rather than everything being non-magical, there's a slight magical field permeating everything, that has been blinding him to other possible magic fields.
As the party travel during the day there is a streak of living trees but they eventually peter out.

Sunday, 29th Jan, 1510Edit
The blizzard ends. Still no sign of Zaaz. While searching the town Grimes and Pharis spot an ooze. The pair hide behind a door, but it slides under the door. The pair attack it as it enters, but find it doesn't have an impact. Grimes and Pharis flee out of the building by a window.
The whole party group up at the tavern, but the ooze is following. Pharis tries to climb onto the roof, but the ooze reaches up and grabs his leg. Jaromir casts burning hands on the ooze, destroying the part of the ooze on the ground, leaving only the section around Pharis' leg.
Pharis lets go of the roof and tries to remove the ooze unsuccessfully. Grimes stabs at the ooze, only hurting Pharis. The ooze is covering Pharis' boot and up his leg up to his knees. Jaromir uses Buring Touch on the ooze, killing it.

Grimes spots a small mountain range travelling slowly south-west in the ocean.

Friday, 3rd Feb, 1510Edit
The creature is now barely visible.
Towards the end of the day Pharis spots a group of 7 Gnolls and a dire wolf. The party set up an ambush for them. Pharis snipes a Gnoll. Jaromir then casts Hypnotic Pattern, entrancing 6 of the 7 gnolls. The dire wolf leaps at Jaromir, but Williams one-shots it with his sword. The last gnoll turns to flee.
The party slaughter the hypnotised Gnolls except one they try to capture and interrogate. The Gnoll wrestles with Kel William until it is held by Earthen Grasp. Jaromir then starts scalping the Gnolls around the captured one. The Gnoll is horrified.
The captured Gnoll is confused and doesn't know what a Human or Elf is. He reveals his leader is Mangi. Also that they took the treasure to Sleet. Jaromir horrifies the Gnoll again with putting his glowing Ankh inside the skull of a dead gnoll. They also took the statue of Velthara from the temple in Salt Port to their home. he has no knowledge of the gnolls north of "the wall". The Gnoll reveals that Sleet is 5-6 days away south-west, at Gnoll speed.
William lets the Gnoll leave alive. Pharis wants to butcher the dead gnolls for food, but this time William stops him.
