June 24, 996 Third Age Summers End

30 Miles North of Farmer Wyles

Daytime 58 degrees
Nighttime 33 degrees
Breezy from the North, Cold
Light Snow at times

The north breeze carries the smell of burning flesh.

The group hears people walking from the south after the break for camp.
It is dark.
The group waits for a reaction.
One of the men pulls a crossbow and fires as the others rush forward.
They notice the larger of the 4 has a strangle waddling gait.
Toutorix falls with an arrow to the side and a blow to the chest.
The others slay the foes and the crossbowmen runs for dear life.
They are 2 men of Xax (green-skinned and a Lizardman)
Phelan heals Toutorix.

They decide it is not safe to stay here and move forward in the dark.
Phelans horse finally falls.

A couple miles north they come upon a funeral pyre. 
Dozens of smoldering men of Xax.
Heads of the green-skinned men are set on pikes around the pyre as are the weapons of the slain.
Toutorix looks for tracks and signs of what happened here.
He gathers information, listening to the ground.
Riders were here with lances and bows.
They overtook the evil men and surrounded them just before sundown the previous day.
Phelan looks through the pile for the children and finds nothing.

The group is exhausted and breaks for camp.

Jun 25, Wednesday

In the morning they wake to the bright sunlight.
A light layer of new snow stretches across the land.
They see a tower in the distance and 2 banners to the west.
Banners of House Blackwood and Flint. They appear to be set as a warning.
They travel to the tower.

At the tower they find it locked. Toutorix comes up with an idea to fell a pine tree to scale the walls. Adfric watches in amazement as the idea works. Tourtix grabs a torch and goes in a window thirty feet up. The rest of the group follows.
Inside the tower they head up the winding stairs to the top and come upon some spider webs which were as thick as a rope. They pause for a second debating what to do. Phelan is attacked by a huge white spider that is cold as winter. They kill the large beast. Adfric is hurt and poison is freezing his body.
