Syd’Ny gives Rigoletto a skeptical look, but offers, “though I have some of my hereditary features, such as skin, hair, and size of my race, I do not have the abilities to create darkness or fairy fire. I asked Anna about this, and she stated that I may have had those abilities at one time, but since I have been living on the surface most if not all my life on the surface and away from the Drow Cities, that I must have lost them. She surmised if I return and live for a long period of time, I might be able to gain them, but it might be at a cost. She says that Drow get their power from the magic that is called Lolth’s Web which is predicted to be a magical field that surrounds each city. But it is surmised also that by living within this magical field my race’s aggressive nature is also added. So Lolth gives them the power, but would take it away from them if they did not return, keeping them captive to their underground cities. At the same time, she is able to promote her need for chaos by inflicting it into their nature magically.”

“I have no interest in seeing or visiting any of these cities, unless I found a way to remove Lolth’s Web.”

Now on the cliff with the others, “I agree with Brianne going to the barn and joining up with Rigoletto and Syd’Ny for two main reason. One, I am the only one who has a direct idea where the building is located and two I want to make sure Foal is OK. I need him by myside.”

He looks around for a moment as if remembering something and he mentions, “This is the spot my father would take me to look out upon the ocean.”

“Interesting,” Rigoletto remarks, “I had always thought those abilities where hereditary. Since you are basically the same race, I wounder if elves might gain that power, if they survived long enough in that type of society.”

After verifying the direction, Astolph rolls up the maps and returns them to his backpack, “Let’s get to the barn then. Lead on Chothur. Make sure the route give the mansion a wide birth, so we don’t stumbled onto any Mothack.”

Myre shrugs his shoulders, “I guess beating up some Mothack might be fun.”

“I think because of that society and how they view elves in general, I doubt we will ever know,” Syd’Ny states.

[17 Keev 15:30:0] – Searching for Exit
During the time the group was traveling through the tunnels, Astolph kicked through some of the garbage left by the workers and finds a nearly completed, but still well made, carved bone statue of a young human that has some worth. He is unable to determine its estimated worth. In addition, based on what was left, Astolph can confirm that it was dwarves that had assisted in building the tunnels.

Once outside on the cliff, Astolph is able to estimate that the location of the Wave Saber is approximately a hour to the north of their current location.

Looking at the edge of the cliff where the ladder had been, Myre searches the area and comes up with nothing. The workmanship to hide the ladder is impressive.

Searching backpacks, Chothur finds there each have similar provisions and supplies, but the clothing was obviously for individuals. He is able to deduce that there is one for each of the family, his Mom, Dad, Di and himself. Though he noticed that his had child sized cloths inside, approximately for a two year old. The last backpack had young woman’s clothing, but Chothur is unable to determine who this pack would be for.

Once ready, the group leave the cliff’s edge and head into the woods, giving as Astolph suggested, the mansion a wide birth. The travel is easy and the weather is nice, so if they hadn’t the need to break the grip of the Mothack, the day would have been a pleasant hike.

As they near the mansion, they suddenly hear nearby the howling of a pack of hounds.

[17 Keev 15:30:0] - Scouting Mission
Deep in conversation, Syd’Ny and Rigoletto enter a clearing looking for the next Mothack observation post, when suddenly their discussion is interrupted by loud howling of a pack of hounds that sounds as if they are about to burst into the clearing.

“That’s strange,” mutters Chothur, “My family doesn’t own any hounds and I didn’t see the City Guard have any, so unless someone is hunting on my father’s land illegally something else is going on.”

Thinking fast, Rigoletto makes a hand signal to Syd’Ny to run for the undergrowth. In the opposite direction, he casts Ghost Harp in the undergrowth on the opposite side clearing. He then dives into the undergrowth and hides with Syd’Ny.

“Well, it can only be assumed that the Mothack must have brought the hounds,” states Astolph, “another item that Wim forget to let us know.”

“I think we can assume also that they are hunting our friends, which means they will need our aid!” exclaims Brianne.

“Well then,” Myre takes out his hand axe and sword, “Let’s go be heroes and save our friends!” He breaks into a runs towards the howling.

Taking Rigoletto’s meaning with his hand signal, Syd’Ny runs into the undergrowth and hides.

Concern for Rigoletto and Syd’Ny based on the howling of some hunting hounds, Astolph, Chothur, Myre and Brianne take off in a dash towards the sound.

Scouting Mission
With the howling of the hounds getting closer, Rigoletto whispers soft archaic words and wiggles his fingers at the far side of the clearing away from themselves. He then dives into the underbrush with Syd’Ny, both using their skills to stay hidden. They both just into place when four large mastiff hounds leap into the clearing and are immediately distracted by a musical harp being played. The bound towards the sound and busy themselves trying to find where it is coming from.

Not far behind comes a man dressed in a hunter’s garb, knee high brown leather boots, warn letter armor, with a buckler shield around his left arm. He wears a simple head band to keep in long flowing hair out of his eyes. In his hands is a bow with an arrow nocked and ready.

Running through the woods, Astolph considers his spells. Web seems like a good one if they are in a group or some are in a cluster, so he will look for this option, otherwise sleep should drop a couple.

Knowing these woods and being a druid does help Chothur navigate through the woods towards the howling. He holds off cast shillelagh onto his staff.

Spotting Chothur preparing his staff with a spell, Brianne copies by adding Magic Weapon to her sickle.

Though Myre is armored, he is in good shape and should be able to keep up with the others who are less armored.

While hidden, Rigoletto hums a tune “Inspire Courage” for both Syd’Ny and himself. [* OOC: +1 saving throws against charm & fear and +1 attack & damage *]

Feeling her confidence building, Syd’Ny will wait until Rigoletto is finished, then stand and throw a dagger at the hunter. [* OOC: Sneak Attack *]
