On the road to Daric…
As our heroes return to the road, V’neef Kai and Tepet Sanzo discuss moving ahead from the main group on a scouting mission. Kai discovers and thoroughly inspects an abandoned campsite, quickly revealing all of its secrets. The group is perplexed by evidence of the presence of children.
Troubled by their lack of concrete information regarding the looming threat, the dragons debate the wisdom of splitting up and whether they should remain on the road or head off into the wilderness. Eventually the characters decide to follow the trail while the main body of soldiers keep to the main road.
Mnemon Sarissa prepares a number of flares.
Kai and Sanzo move ahead of the others, stealthily pursuing the trail from the campsite. They discover a small group of refugees, including a particularly imposing warrior carrying an Orichalcum Greatsword.
Sanzo adopts a disguise and approaches the refugees.
