Year 4 Day 349
Weather: Cold but no snow.
Hexes Explored: None
The Founders spend the morning resting so they can recover their strength of the Soul Eater’s attack.
They break camp at noon. After two to three hours of riding they have entered a valley and start to see markers that they believe represent the boundaries of The Valley of the Dead. Josiman flies head to scout and returns to report he has seen thousands of standing stones and that the valley, which is almost a box-canyon, has a narrow exit at the far end with stairs leading up into the mounts. However a pair of giant zombies guards the stairs.
The Founders ride deeper into the valley. The area has a pervading sense of foreboding. Lynessa and Kesh identify that the standing stones, most likely grave markers, have cyclopean writing on them. The Founders engage and destroy the zombies, in fact brain-eating formally Cyclops Dread Zombies, and then continue up the stairs.
Alex checks the trail ahead for tracks and finds signs not only of the zombie Cyclops coming the other way but that a centaur and a human-sized biped have been there before them.
