The group caroused a few nights at Intercity after the incident will Smilley. Yip got 150 gold but everyone else pissed off the local chapter of The Blue Man Group – And that might pop up again.
Group gather winter clothes and climbing gear and left for The SkyTeeth Mountains.
Along the way they ran into a patrol of Intercity Guards, it was a mundane interaction. The group also stopped at some cliffs which overlooked a pond and had a beautiful waterfall. The Daring stayed there half a day to enjoy the view and relax.
The third encounter was when The Daring heard snoring off the trail – The investigated and saw a sleeping man, with forest growing over him. They approached and a Dryad appeared. With no other alternative the group attacked her and then Leo dispelled the magic slumber. The Druid was Jacob of the Wild – He left to head to Intercity to meet The Crossroads.
Group made is to the town of Mourningwood, at the base of The Teeth. The town sat at the edge of the lake, and was the largest of the lakeside towns which circled the body of water. The group stabled their horses here and made their way into The Teeth.
Howling was heard for hours as The Daring made their way up the mountains. The snow was very deep and there were snow squalls (Think Lord of the Rings) but Ghazan’s guidance and skill made it so the terrain didn’t hamper them. The group was attacked by three Yeti’s and an Abominable Yeti, known to Yip as the fabled “Bumble”.
The yeti’s actually froze most of the group in their tracks, but luckily Leo was able to aid in freeing them. They dispatched the yeti’s but were having trouble with Bumble – In fact both Ghazan and Drake were downed and earned sweet scars (Ghazan on his shoulder and Drake on his chest) from Bumble’s claw rakes. But from the distance an echo could be heard, coming closer and closer, “IIIIII’M SATCHMOOOOO” Satchmo, the legendary friendly Brown Yeti came prancing out of the mountains. He swatted Bumble once…And then continued on his way…, “IIIIII’M SAAAAATCHMOOOOOO” Drake was unconscious when this occurred and doesn’t believe the rest of the group when they tell him about it.
Leo dealt the final blow and Ghazan natured the fuck out of taking the Yeti Horn off of him.
The group made it to The People of the Teeth and were revered for delivering Bumble’s Horn.
Yip delivered Ivan’s note – which seemed to trouble the elders but The Daring wasn’t made aware of the contents of the letter.
There was a night of festivities – and once the elders heard Ghazan’s story they told The Daring where the Foultusk tribe could be found.
The next day was Ghazan’s birthday – He was so ripped and sweet.
The Daring had to scale a cliff face and travel for half a day to come to the Orc lair.
Outside of it were a ton of goblins and bugbears – Dutch killed most of them with fireballs.
Orcs piled out of the cave and The Daring made short work of them, by the Dozens.
Inside the cave were about 7 orcs waiting for them – Leo played an amazing rock solo and literally turned them all into bloody piles of diarrhea with one move, all at once.
They encounter an Orc chief and his shamans. Before the chief died he told Ghazan he had only been following orders when he had led the attack on Ghazan’s clan.
The Daring went further into the cave and encountered two Ogres and an Oni (Ogre Mage) – The Oni told Ghazan he had been granted a vision from his mind’s eye and had seen The Horn of The Oronar (I probably fucked that up, sorry Ethan.) Clan and had sent the Orc tribe to get it. The Oni then took out the horn and blew it – It summed 15 spirits of Ghazan’s tribe members, they approached as if to attack but once they recognized Ghazan as one of their tribe they saluted him and dissipated.
The Daring killed the Oni and Ogres and received The Horn and some magical dust.
The Daring then returned to The People of The Teeth and had a shaman identified the dust as “Dust of Disappearance…JK you gonna fuck yourself with this” and the Horn as The Bronze Horn of Valhalla (That’s the magical properties of the horn, the actual name of the horn was Horn of Oronar)
The Daring then left to return to Mourningwood to get their horses – On the way they encountered a Frost Giant and some Winter Wolves, they dispatched them and made it to Mourningwood.
(Meta game – The day The Daring got to Mourningwood was the day the boat sold in Intercity)
The Daring spent two weeks returning to Intercity and collected the proceeds from the sale of their boat.
