In the morning, the team left Vintiver. Eshara accompanied them on their journey, showing them the way to the Dalish camp. However, just as they left the village, Lisa saw a group of villagers led by Coalan in the woods by the road. They were out there for the elven woman, but did not took the heroes seriously. Lisa tripped Coalan and aimed an arrow to his throat, cooling the other men. They were sent back to Vintiver with a caution and some advice.
The camp was in ruins, all doors of the aravels were broken, but not much was missing. It was clear that someone captured the elves and took them away to the south. It was getting dark, so our heroes took in one of the arravels to spend the night there. However, in the middle of the night, they woke up to some freaky laughter coming from the woods and approaching. It was clear, that they’ll have to fight when they smelled smoke seeping in between the small holes of the bottom of the arravel.
The strange creatures were four and the following fight was tough. Lisa on the rooftop with Eshara, Ezekiel and Dorian in front of the doors of the cart, fighting in the light of a single torch. Two of the revengers were dead, the other twe fled in the night. It was a shocking discovery to see the two bodies “reverting” to young Dalish scouts. They left the camp in the first light of the Sun, Ezekiel taking a Dalish dagger after learned the hard way that without his sword, he is almost naked. Lisa took a beautiful elven longbow as a gift in advance for helping the Dalish.
Eshara lead them in the forest where they reached a chasm, approximately 16 yards wide. A fallen tree served as a bridge, but it was clear that the black crows on the trees are waiting for their approach. For some, it was a simple walk, while for Lisa, it was not so easy. She slipped and while Ezekiel went back for her, the others targeted the crows with spells and arrows.
After successfully traversing the ravine, they walked in the forest even more carefully. Late afternoon, they reached the small valley, where the ruins were laying. However, they were not alone…
