Before heading along the way to Tiel, we rummage through the remains of the undead and find some arrows, but nothing else of much value. We set camp and the night passes without event. When we wake up, it is raining pretty hard, hard enough that it is difficult to get going along the road. We travel about forty miles that day. Based on the map, we know we have about another twenty miles to go before we reach the city of Tiel.
As we continued to travel, we find two bodies along the road. After Lauris and Balyx decide that the bodies have been dead for quite some time, but Caela actually determines they were killed only in the last few days. Tracks surround them, and Geth is able to identify them as dire wolf tracks. We set camp and a watch. On the first watch, Balyx notices scuffling sounds beyond the camp’s perimeter. He investigates but doesn’t see anything, turning back and heading to the camp. Nothing else happens until the end of his watch, at which point he reports his findings to Lauris, who responds with his usual grandiosity and condescension, followed with his usual immediate regret. Balyx boxes Lauris’s ear as he walks away, and Lauris attempts to tackle him, instead falling prone in the mud. Caela and Geth awaken from the commotion. Geth comes to arms seeking the threat to the party and Caela begins looking around, and sees something perfectly still at two locations towards the north. Coming over, Geth can tell that there are multiple creatures out there, though he is uncertain how many, but that we are surrounded, and calls for Jarry to be awakened. Caela pulls out her signal whistle and we enter combat.
We take quite a mauling from the wolves but prevail and trudge on to Tiel. We arrive in a small town surrounded by a wooden wall at around 4 in the morning, and find the settlement to be extremely flammable.
