After emerging from the forest, Gildor spotted a small farm which had been attacked. An Underdark Coin was found in the mud at the farm.
Our antiheroes proceeded to the town of Zelbross where they found that the Howling Skulls had slaughtered nearly a third of the rustic hamlet’s population. After healing the barkeep at The Sly Fox, he informed Malvuelles that the raiders had killed and taken livestock, and after sacking the town, they headed south. The barkeep also told the Band that the Skulls might be too much for them, seeing as how they decimated nearly the whole town guard. He also said that the Crypt of the Six, in Najara, might contain treasures which could help the Band.
The disciples of Loki headed south, across the High Moor towards the Crypt. Rathgar convinced his companions to engage a Yuan-Ti patrol, ending in a bloody skirmish under the desert moon. The Band sought refuge to lick their wounds after an intense battle, but the caves of the desert seemed an ill choice given the other Yuan-Ti patrols in the area, not to mention the other nasty creatures living in the desert. The Band finally made its way to the entrance to the Crypt of the Six. . .
