After ‘buying’ some slaves from the Gnolls, we start a fight with them.
- 4 x Gnoll (CR5)
- 4 x Hyenas
The slaves (12) are fatigued so we will need to take a rest and then Harish will use Phantom Chariots so we can travel to City of Ipeq to release the slaves. it will take slightly over a day to get there. Along the way, we have an encounter.
- 1 x Scorpion Dryder Thing (CR8)
- 1 x Large Scorpion
We continue on wards Ipeq and arrive. Seijen Wu gives each of the slaves 5 gp each and sends them on their way.
Take a day to sell and the split is 863.5
We then head back to the area we are searching and search the hex.
Hex 2 – We find and old camp site. 3 people all man sized. Had weapons. They were headed north west.

From the Aerie, we can see further north (in the square we had been in) appears to be a vaguely hexagonal mound. We camp the night then finish searching the hex the next day. We level that night.
We head back to Hex 7 (Letter M).

The cave is adorned in heiroglyphics. It depicts the construction of the pyramid. It shows sphinxes with human heads helping in the construction. There is a spring at the back of the cave.
