So we have decided to go to Thistletop Island. The warrens surrounding the place are quite expansive, confining the tall ones to a crawl through poison prickles. Upon entering two goblin dogs were easily dispatched. In the next room, a giant cat and goblin with druid-like characteristics put up one hell of a fight. Poor Jet took a beating. After some thought, I feel bad about killing this goblin. He seemed intelligent and likely could be reasoned with, and wasn’t initially aggressive. Also I’m sure he knows how to get me my own cat! Sadly, we didn’t explore this option.
The druid room had a well or pit scarred with claw marks which housed something terrifying at the bottom. Perhaps the pit joins with a subterranean tunnel leading to the island which is much stealthier than crossing the bridge but exponentially more dangerous. Anyways, we branched off to explore the rest of the settlement, and Brenna found a pathetic pocket of goblins—or Birdcrunchers, which we slaughtered with impunity. All except one we questioned and let go. Apparently, the beast in the pit is fed at regular intervals with—Birdcrunchers.
After the party was patched up we decided to mount an attack by crossing the bridge. We hoped Jet being all sneaky and all could sap the patrol allowing us to cross unnoticed. That plan failed horribly so we all rushed across to assist. Pile smashed in the front door when he noticed a goblin trying to lock us out as we followed. We didn’t get to see much of the interior, and only fought a few goblins in the first room. This is when I was filled by immense strength and smashed in the thing’s skull into a soupy pulp with one powerful strike. After dropping a few more gobs we all realized our precarious position as we could be easily swarmed. At breakneck speed we all ran across the bridge which we then hastily cut.
So now were stuck over her and they seem to be happy to be isolated there…quite the dilemma. I’m curious to see if the pit leads to an alternate route which I’m willing to explore. Seoni giggled with delight when I mentioned this idea, however the group wisely vetoed this idea…thank you Toshley!
So now we are at an impasse. unfortunately we seem to have help Nualia turtle in Thisletop.
