Major events of the session: {5th day.}

The party heals the injured and unconscious boy. Talking to him they learn that he's from a villiage to the north. They head north to return him to his home. A short time later they encounter a small group of Daeorian natives traveling south. The people are armed mostly with farm tools (scythes, pitch forks, machettes, etc.) and are tracking the reptillians who stole the two boys. The injured boy is reunited with his father.

The heroes decide to accompany the villagers back to their home to insure their safety. This proves to have been a prudent decision because a small band of four thieves blocked the road with the apparent intent of robbing any unfortunate travelers. After Perla was shot in the neck, the party killed two of the robbers [], one was unconscious and subsequently captured [], and one escaped.

Once the party arrived at the village, their captive was taken to an abandoned cottage for interrogation. When what limited information was extracted, Throm and company offer the prisoner to the village for the administration of appropriate justice, but the villagers are too concerned about potential retribution from the many thieves still in the area. So, Throm strips the prisoner of almost everything (including shoes and shirt) and releases him with the admonition that he abandon his wicked ways or face sterner punishment if caught again. Once released, he quickly ignored Throm's warning and ran west, obviously returning to his band of thieves.

The party follows the fleeing thief at a distance to see if he will lead them to the thieves' base of operations. After only a few miles, the barefoot thief sits down to rest and is approached by a man with slightly elvish features. The standing man offers the thief a familiar looking vial. The sitting thief accepts the vial undoubtedly thinking it to be a healing potion. A moment later the barefoot thief lay dead upon the ground. The standing man makes a furtive glance in the direction of the hiding party of heroes, then he walks down an embankment into a nearby ravine.

A few minutes later the party catches up to the dead thief, who now has a distinctly greenish tint to his skin. After little discussion, the party decides to follow the mysterious man with the poison into the ravine. After traveling a little more than half a mile, the party is ambushed by eight assailants.

After a prolonged and vigorous battle that is nearly too much for the heroes, they kill six of their attackers and render one unconscious. The last one excapes with relatively little injury. []
