From The Journal of Skor Uran Gnome and Master of Fire So here we are getting saved by a Druid in this awful swamp. He tells us that his brother is this Black Sword character, and that he has been trying to sabotage his progress of breaking into the Pyramid. sheesh…hate to see holidays at their house. We also learned of a Black Dragon in the Lake of Burning Death. After a brief conversation…(FINALLY) with the gang we decide that we need to go try and find out what is going on with Grokk and Daviren missing and all. So we head back out of the swamp and wouldn’t you know it… all hell is breaking loose… we get attacked by something near foxglove manner that makes the other guys see all sorts of crazy illusions. I finally notice the little bugger hiding in the shadows, and BLAM!! Hit that ugly fellow with a magic missile. Of course he gets scared by my manly powerfulness, and runs away… We decide to hold up in an abandoned farm and apparently the cowardly elf didn’t wake anyone after hearing someone being chased. I pity the poor soul attacked that night. So we head to sandpoint and we run in to Nualia…I mean Lydia. She and a few SEF men are on their way to guard a caravan. May Desna be with them. Approaching the SEF entrance of Sandpoint we run into farmer Grumpf and he tells us they even ate the dogs… They being Scarecrows…whoa he needs some rest. SO we hear there has been a murder, and its down in the Scarnetti Lumber mill. We quickly go investigate and the Elf finally does something useful… We manage to figure what happened…for the most part…hopefully… Now we need to go drop off the Looney and head out to the farm lands to investigate… hopefully I can get some corn for a batch of white lightning…hehe…So we stop at the houses on the way…we warn who we come across and mourn for the destruction and emptiness we find. This has got to be stopped… Finally we are heading to yet another house which is the last known whereabouts of Grokk. A start burning scarecrows on sight…. wouldn’t you know it…they think we wanna play with them…so we dispatch quite a few and some rats too. After a few go down I black out after one hits me…im up, and being dragged…whats that grumbling sound above me? Oh look Einaar is trying to help out. So I start torching this one dragging me. After he’s gone, I go check the grumbling…its Daviren…dressed and tied like a Scarecrow…OH NO! he’s becoming a ghoul! I fear Grokk and the others missing may be the same way, and these scarecrows are people from the land. After running down and destroying all the Scarecrows we find Grokk and Shalelu. Thank Desna! now we need to get them fixed back up and stop the transformations. I hope we are not too late!
