13th of Neth, 4718 AR
A courier arrives with a letter to the party. It is an invitation to the birthday of Quintessa Maray, Hannis Drelev’s mistress. She will celebrate her birthday on the 22nd of Neth. The party decides that the party would be a great time to make a move on Drelev. They plan to inform him on the party that he is no longer in charge of Fort Drelev. Until the birthday party they will make sure everyone except Drelev is on the same page.
They start by checking out the noticeboard, and they see that there are some problems in the vicinity of Fort Drelev. Going for as much goodwill as they can get, the party sets out to check out rumours of bog mummies in the east of the Hooktongue and a giant sabre-tooth tiger called Speartooth just north of Fort Drelev.
Weixi teleports the party to Tok-Nikrat, a bog strider village.
Tok-Nikrat, Hooktongue Slough
Ko-Kekt, the leader of the village and father of the bog strider the party recued in M’Botuu, turns out to be very knowledgeable about the Hooktongue Slough, being able to explain in great accuracy the locations of nearly every dangerous beast, treacherous quicksands and landmarks.
The closest place of interest is a slug lair, home to a type of slug of which Garuum requested a few vials of acid. The slug lair is a foul-smelling pile of rotting wood next to a small river. One slug is swimming through the river slowly while another one is feeding on a dead fallen tree. The party easily deals with the acid-spitting slugs, though Rachim narrowly avoids a blast of slug acid.
