[Act 1, Scene 7] Happy Trails
« on: October 10, 2019, 10:24:15 PM »
Following the tracks of a couple hundred Orcs, is not that hard, but it is a little unsettling, to say the least. Your mind starts to play tricks on you, you can’t believe you are actually doing this.

**Sorry, not following. How is our mind playing tricks on us when we backtrack the orc horde exodus?

** dammit, I had another sentence about that. Well, this will have to do.

Every little sound the forest makes seems amplified. The woodland creatures seem unphased that a hive of hundreds of Orcs just passed through here.

As most of the party slogs on foot, Skrawk scouts ahead, then does lazy circles as the sloggers catch up.  After a few hours of such fun, Skrawk spots what might be a camp, way off in the distance.  At the current rate of slog, Skrawk guesses it will take the party about 3 days to reach it.  Flying, of course, would allow Skrawk to reach the area much faster.

He heads down to the ground to report his sighting and conclusions.  If asked, his recommendation would be to head in that direction, but continue the current practice until everyone is maybe 3-4 hours away, then Skrawk can take a closer look.

Dayn

Stops, raising one hand to signal everyone else to stop, then seems to be growling to her Jaguar, Ouwr, knocking an arrow and looking at some bushes (some unknown as of yet) distance ahead.

Red continues to intermittently attune, trying to get a sense for the center of the earthnode and to validate they're generally moving in that direction.

He will pause and step behind partial cover when Dayn notes something ahead (behind part of a tree), waiting for the situation to clarify.

Dayn

Tells Ouwr to stay there and backtracks to the group, "Two bears in the bushes ahead. Can you sense the magicks that affected the other bear?"

Is Skrawk anywhere around, or is he still ahead, scouting?

Dayn

After waiting a bit, and a short conversation with Ouwyr, Dayn waves the group to continue onward, keeping an eye out for the animals, wherever they might be.

** the rest of you see the jaguar turn and come back to Dayn, making purring and chirping noises. Dayn seems to respond in kind.

Red will continue to follow Dayn, and trying to make sure that we continue to be moving towards the center of the earthnode, at least generally.

The rest of the day goes quietly, as Dayn leads you all along the wide path the Orcs took, stopping occasionally for lunch and to examine the different animal tracks, (you note different livestock, hogs mainly), but don’t encounter anything else that would raise an alarm.

The sun begins to set when Dayn stops for dinner at a small clearing.

Skrawk returns to the group and offers to help set up camp for the night.  he'll take a watch, but otherwise will be sleeping in a nearby tree.
