The party found themselves surrounded in the outpost, ringed along the clearing by high elf scouts, magic users and the remnants of the wolf pack which had chased the daughter of the dawn and her dead escort to the outpost the previous night. Dina Nomo , the self proclaimed paladin of Corellon, was initially thrown off my the furious attack from Zellari. However, after regaining his composure the high elf pressed Zellari, using a command word to force the gnome to cast away his spear. Just as it looked like the end for Zellari, the antipaladin’s steed ran down his master while the gnome made flight for the road.
Inside the outpost Minus and the daughter of the dawn drank the mysterious potions from the night elfs pack which turned both of them invisible. The pair escaped through a window in the guest rooms just as one of the cultists set the wooden structure ablaze.
Haevar shielded himself with a bust of fog, and picked up Sender on Minus’s horse. They rode out past the fleeing gnome, scooping up his tiny frame by the collar of his chain shirt.
Jononna and Rose were nearly over taken by a pack of wolves as they tried to mount the camel near the smoke house. Rose clung to the rear of the saddle with a tight grip as one wolf shredded into her leg with its teeth. The pair managed to escape when the wolves were called back to keep pressure on the crystal outpost.
Minus made a gambit to try and rescue Dina Nomo’s war steed , sacrificing his invisibility to blast the trampled knight with a thunderwave before riding off. As the minus road into the tree line the horse magically dissipated into mist , having been recalled by its master. A stray wolf encountered Minus in the trees , but with a phantom tough from the Wizard and a sound clubbing from the daughter of the dawn the beast was dead. Dina Nomo was too injured to pursue immediately, and the last two escapees fled on foot into the woods.
The party regrouped 6 miles east near a river crossing. After a short rest the group pushed northward into forest , roughly following the river toward lakeshire until dark, where they made camp under a wayward pine.
