The Blood Hawks finished the funeral of their former leader, Guri. Still thinking of their former leader, the party immediately recruited a former acquaintance of his to help with their vengeance on the caves that had taken their captain’s life. After some small, successful skirmishes against the insectile inhabitants, Nuae led a solo expedition into a mysterious underwater tunnel.
It turns out the tunnel led to a lair of a powerful owlbear, which eviscerated Nuae before the party could pull him to safety. Fortunately, Yurgran Stoneteller summoned the will to lead the Hawks to Nuae’s rescue. In all, the Blood Hawks ended up making some money in the deal, and Nuae spontaneously returned from the dead.
The party, having finished their business in the South, returned to Fangarie to tell everyone of their accomplishments, and to level up Nuae.
