Last week, our heroes ventured out to the SmokeWorks, with the intention of filling in some of the gaps in their memories from Longshanks. Tia also hoped to see if they could do something with the ankheg armor plates. Longshanks promised to get started on the ankheg bits, and provided some forgotten information, in particular as it related to the slain ratcatcher Wolfshead. While visiting with Longshanks, a stir at the SmokeWorks arose. An elven lumberjack had collapsed, exhausted, after having fled an attack by strange light-skinned, hooved creatures who, he believed, had murdered everyone in his logging camp.
The heroes decided to try to deal with these monsters, presumably kor. Dain set out with one of Longshank’s ponies to fetch Norm. Along the way, he ran into a group of wild, enormous wolves who pursued and at various times stood like a man an hurled a javelin at him and the elf who Dain hoped to bring to safety in Rankford Mitte. One of Longshank’s horses was slain by the wolves, but Dain and the elf managed to escape.
Having fetched Norm, dropped off the elf and returned to SmokeWorks, the party set out where they understood the logging camp that the kor had attacked was located. They made their way into the wood, along a logging trail, through an abandoned logging camp site, and came to the bloody ruins of the objective. As we stopped, the kor had noticed the heroes and were preparing for battle.
