Summary

15 November – The Restful Ranger – The Genesis of the Misfits of Wildwood

• K’Lossis Maragin introduces the need for volunteers
• Snow Goblins have descended down from their traditional mountaintop caves
• Normally Snow Goblins are only a problem in the highest mountain passes and usually only to the Northeast of Wildwood
• Selection is done by the 8 Lieutenants of the Northern Huntsmen
• Throughout the selection the party are overlooked by the Lieutenants – often in a less than positive way
• On completion of selection only a handful of people have not been selected
• After process is complete Ortwin tries to find out from Durmik why they were rejected
• Durmik points out that they are all Misfits and didn’t deserve to be selected
• Hubert, Dex, Nanda, Ortwin and Xugag conclude that if they are Misfits that they will be Misfits together
• The Misfits of Wildwood are born
• The Misfits decide they will show everyone and will contribute with or without having been selected
• They proceed to Talon’s Outfitters (Dex’s Father’s Shop) and gear up for the Cold Weather
• Nanda departs prior to this to locate a suitable “Sled Dog”
• They all agree to meet the next morning prior to first light at the Restful Ranger

16 November – The Restful Ranger, Northeastern Shore of Lake Everchill – The Misfits proceed into the Wilds

• After a hearty breakfast at the Restful Ranger the Misfits prepare to depart
• Durmik provides a few parting shots which the Misfits allow to roll off of them
• Nanda introduces the party to their Sled Dog, Stinky, an animal companion that has an interesting resemblance to Nanda
• The party head off along the now frozen surface of Lake Everchill – heading Northeastward
• The day passes slowly but uneventfully as they get used to their snow shoes, their gear and travelling with each other
• The camp for the night on the Shore of the Lake

17 November – Northeastern Shore of Lake Everchill – Ice Troll Attack

• As the party awakes after passing their first and uneventful night in the Wilds, the weather begins to turn
• They travel along the shore because the ice is dodgy in this portion of Lake Everchill

• The opportunity attacks caused by the Troll fleeing cause it to drop unconscious
• It’s regenerative powers see it come back to and nearly deal Xugag a death blow
• Hubert rushes into combat with a burning torch wielded like a club
• Hubert miraculously takes the Troll down and burns its unconscious body
• The party find the Trolls cave and discover some treasure as well as a deceased and partially eaten Huntsman
