We traveled from the tower for approximately 2 weeks. We visited 2 local villages. We found a cart in which the people had been forced to eat each other and still died (we did bury and consecrate them). We met a very nice woodsman who directed us to a logger town. The logger had GREAT ale (95/100) and another woman cooked great food (92/100). We are now preparing to venture into the deadlands of probable vampirism as we have noticed the local flaura withering in unusual ways. More to come. It is colder than usual for this winter.
