3 Calistril – 13 Calistril, 44NC
After a pitched fight in the dark, the party dispatches their assailants, capturing two, including the platoon Sergeant. The prisoners validate Smoot’s intelligence: there is a company of Westergarde regulars moving into Harrowburg and several patrols were dispatched to monitor the environs and attempt to capture anyone leaving the Mengst Farm. The survivors are left alive, tied up in the woods.
The group moves North through the hills on their long trek to the Giles estate. Over the course of the next week or so they make fair time and progress and continue their careful conversations to get to know each other.
