An unexpected side trip

After leaving the cave the trio (Tanil, Hofa and Hodill) searched for any other lizard tracks around the entrance to the cave.  Finding none and deciding that the crazed lizards most likely came through the door somehow there set off through the forest in search of some other clue.

Through a gap in the trees at one stage they saw what they thought might be a dragon fly away over the hills.

Suddenly, Hofa told Hodill to stop and hold perfectly still.  He had spotted an Assassin Vine.  Tanil drew his sword and slashed at it where upon it threw it's self at him.  Hofa and Hodill drew their weapons to attack but Hodill was caught from behind by a tree!  He managed to wrestle himself free and together that chopped to vines off the Assassin Vine until it stopped moving.  Tanil had taken quite a beating from it, but they continued on until they came to the edge of the forest. At this point it was getting dark so they made their way back to town.

Once back in town two soldiers staggered up to Hofa and Hodill and offered to buy them a drink, Hofa refused and told them sternly to go back to the barracks.  They continued on to the temple to see Father Rolf who healed them devinely before they each donated a silver piece.  Afterwards they went home for some dinner.

Lizard Fight
Toilday - 5th of Erastus

The lizard that appeared attacked Higee and she tried to run away.  Three more lizards appeared and Hodill, Higee, Polly, and Natie fought them with the arrows they had retreived.   Hofa joined the fight to make sure the children were safe, Higee merely ran away, not even noticing immediately that the lizard chasing her had been killed.

Once the fighting ceased Hofa told the children to collect the 4 lizard bodies and take them to the tanner and leather worker (Seren) in town and he should give them a silver piece for each lizard.  On the way through town Hofa stopped at the temple and had Father Rolf check on their wounds.  There were only minor and he asked for a silver piece after he had bandaged them.

The children continued to the tanner's alone, but when they got there Seren told them he would give them a copper piece for each lizard.  Polly demanded the full price and Seren offered 5 coppers each which the children accepted.


Liked: Bandages

Didn't like: The tanner offering less (being mean).

Confused by: Why Hofa said the tanner would give 1sp but he only gave 5cp.

Starting Out
Toilday - 5th of Erastus

Hodill set out in the morning to meet his friends at the playing field on the east side of the river.  On the way there he saw an old man on the bridge fishing.  When he got there he saw Natie behind a tree talking to someone, but didn't see what happened.  He met Polly and Higee and they played tag for a while.  Higee the dancer was very hard to tag and at one stage dodged so quickly out of the way that Hodill was surprised, slipped and fell, cutting his chin.

After that Hodill didn't much feel like playing tag and asked if anyone had a ball they could play with.  Polly was going to get one from home but before he could leave Hofa, Hodill's father found them and told Hodill he was going to take him out to teach him how to shoot a bow.  The other children asked to come with them and Hofa agreed.  On the way back over the bridge the old man fishing had 2 fish in his bucket already.

They went out of town to the North where Hofa took them to a field with a target setup and showed them how to shoot.  They took turns shooting with varied success then Hofa asked them to retrieve the practice arrows.  After a bit of searching they found them and were just about to head back when a large lizard appeared from behind a rock and jumped at Higee.
