'I'll need something to butcher those lizards...', mutters Doppio, 'what do I reckon would do the trick?'

((Since everyone seems to be done with combat and disinclined to chase after the last three lizards...))

As the party begins to move closer to each other and regroup, the last little saurians make good on their escape and take the opportunity to flee for real, sprinting away as fast as their little legs can carry them out into the wasteland, before disappearing into some unseen fold in the land from whence they came. And thus the party is able to scavenge food and items, and taste the sweet, savory taste of VICTORY!

((The lizards over-all give you 6 stone-tipped spears, 2 bronze-tipped spears, a damaged wooden shield and an undamaged wooden shield. They also have 2 days worth of frozen meat (crayfish) for the entire party, that can be added to everyone's inventory, and a collection of gems and glass baubles that add up to 50 GP in worth total))

Before looting the bodies, Grimlea moves herself away from the still-frozen saurian and waits until Veritas moves too, before dropping her spell. The head falls from the scaled and feathered creature's body, and a smaller fountain of crimson than expected spouts out before it just falls over with a somewhat-wet thud. The dwarf looks up at Doppio and asks, "Ye really serious about eatin' these critters?" She seems a little concerned about this for some reason.

Aife watches the remaining foes flee and holsters her axe and shield.

"Well done, everyone. A battle where no one was lost is a victory. I was hoping we could rest here for a while, but as things stand I'm afraid this will have to do."

The Chosen brings in Lassaira and Doppio close to herself, cups her hands in front of her mouth and gently breathes trough them. A gentle, radiant spray bursts forward and covers her injured comrades. As it does they feel their wounds close a little and turn from sharp pain to a tolerable ache. Aife takes a deep breath and continues.

"Alright, take what you need from here before we move on. All food and gold will be pooled and divided equally among everyone. I'll hold any remainders as petty cash. Anything else you find of use goes to whoever needs it most. I will settle any disagreements should you have any. Mind you, we don't know how long we have before they come back with reinforcements, so you all have 7 minutes to gather what you can and then we're off."

((That's 6 hp heal for Lass and Doppio each. 3 from my breath and 3 from second wind + rallying cry. Also 50GP divided by 6 is 8gp each and 2gp for petty cash which I marked in my sheet.))

Cedar shakes his body out, letting the built up arcane charge within him dissipate into nothingness. The glow from his tattoos fading away until they were their usual inky black. He regroups with the others.

Overhearing Grimlea's comment about Doppio wanting to consume the fallen saurians, Cedar casts a disgusted look at him before looking away.

He does as Aife orders and starts scavenging. Searching for anything that might be useful or edible.

((Added the gold to my sheet, added the meat to my sheet, now scavenging.))

Discouraged by Grimlea's comment, Doppio swallowed his saliva.

'No, of course not, I don't think we should consume them... Though if push came to shove... No, we are still in possession of a rather discouragingly massive stock of... edible, I assume, soles...'

'On second thought, I say we skin and eat the buggers. They can't taste that bad.'

Once the party has scavenged what they wanted from this area, and the blood has been cleaned off of whoever cares about it (everyone. It's cold and blood chilling and matting down clothing sucks,) everyone is finally ready to move on to the next branch of the journey.

The weather the next day, however, seems to have other plans. Lass'aira had managed to find a small thicket growing from a ruined guard tower for shelter the night before, a shelter that allowed the party to see from the top of a hill for miles in any direction, and to spot the still-distant shape of the ruins that they had originally come to investigate. However, as the night goes on the stars seem to fade away until the night becomes pitch black, and those who take up watch find that snow begins to fall. First a light dusting, then in heavier drifts, until finally, with the dawn, a white-out blizzard blinds the group to the outside world.

The party has a few options at this point. There is no telling when the storm will let up (unless a party member is a druid that I am unaware of,) so you could all be pinned down for little more than a few hours, for the rest of the day, for multiple days, or even for a week. During this time, you won't have many opportunities to go out foraging without risking getting lost, and food will be difficult to find in the first place given the weather.

The ruins, along with your elevation, the sheltering thicket and your tents, can provide you with enough cover not to worry about being overwhelmed by cold or buried in snow. While the briks and mortar are damaged, and the windows have long been without any glass, the ruin still provides you with a roof overhead and three walls to block the wind. You could try to wait the storm out here, and move once it has passed. But again, there is no telling how long that will take.

Alternately, if you did not want to wait, Lass'aira might be able to lead you to your destination despite the storm. It could be risky doing so, as if you go astray, there is a very good chance you go very, very astray, and cross the paths of one of the other scouting parties instead of keeping the distance you've had so far, leaving the squads who come after you to stumble blind through this part of the wastes. And you could get separated from one another in this driving snow, which is a death sentence in and of itself for anyone who loses the guide unless they get supremely lucky.

Or you could try something else, if someone in the party believes they can come up with a clever solution. Whatever you choose to do, the party has to make a decision on how they are going to handle this storm.

The wind whistling in the cracks between the bricks in the old tower walls brought refreshing winter air as Lass'aira dug her way out from under the covers and stretched her arms out. She took a sip from her waterskin that she had kept near during the night and bent her torso left to right. It seemed that the injuries were mostly dealth with and didn't limit her movement. It was still some till sunrise but the eerie glow of the first light through the snowstorm was already enough to see. She went through her rucksack for her rations and took a look out the window while chewing down on a dried salamander. The snow blowing horizontally across the landscape obscured everything past a few paces. She licked her fingers clean and took another sip of water. Satisfied she buried herself under the covers again and closed her eyes, falling asleep with the song of the wind.

Aife awoke to see the world covered in white snow. She pulled her mantle tight as she ate. When the rest of the squad finished their morning routine, they found their commander on the edge of the ruins staring outward.

"This weather is not in our favor, but our orders are to stay ahead. Lass'aira, will you be able to navigate us safely through this snowstorm?"

When no answer came, Aife turned to see that apparently not all of the rest of the squad had finished their morning routine. In fact their guide whom the sergeant addressed was not there at all.

Aife sighed.

"Someone go and get Lass'aira out here right now! We may be away from the main force, but this is still the military and sleeping in is NOT encouraged."

Cedar pulled his cloak tighter around himself and grunted as he lifted himself from where he had been perched on a pile of rubble. He had been awake for quite some time, the cold making it hard to sleep in. How the others were managing it he had no idea. He was jealous of their tolerance of the cold.

He approached their reborn leader, stopping next to her, but far enough to be out of her range. He eyed the reborn as she stared out into the frozen wastes before them. Cedar turned, switching from staring at his leader to staring out into the white emptiness before him. Snow. Cold. Freezing. He shivered and pulled his cloak around himself tighter.

"I hope you have faith in our guide. Freezing to death is the last thing I want to do in this hellscape." He grunted.

"Hmmmm. I suppose there is some truth to your words. But are you really going to entrust all our lives to her? I don't doubt her abilities, she has gotten us this far has she not? What concerns me is the unpredictability of this land. And now you add a blizzard onto that? Forgive me for not having as much faith as you do."

Aife smiled slightly.

"Faith is important, but that does not mean that you should disregard reality. If she cannot get us through, then I won't task her to. Our guide is a survivalist. And that means knowing what you can and cannot do. And for us to know that, we first need to ask her. So go ahead and get her out here now."

Cedar gave the reborn a tight-lipped frown.

"What am I? Your manservant?" He grumbled. He left Aife alone and made his way over to Lass'aira's tent.  

"Lass'aira, wake up! Aife wants you!" He barked at her tent.

Veritas had been sitting on the window sill for a while, gazing at the white scenery outside and taking in the clear, cool air. Fresh snow always instilled a childlike wonder in her. She scooped a handful of snow, gently rubbing it with her thumbs. The back of Cedar's neck exploded in a flash of snowy dust.

"Good-Morning Cedar! And how are you on this wonderful day?"

Cedar let out a very un-manly squawk and jumped into the air when the snow impacted the back of his neck.

"Why you little...." Cedar muttered as he bent over. Shaking out the powdery snow from his hood. He stood up, groaning in annoyance as the melted snow dripped down his back. Leaving chilled lines on his flesh.

"I'll get you for that," he threatened.

Perhaps the threat would have been more intimidating if Cedar had remembered to shake out the snow from his still chaotic and fluffy bedhead.

"Ro nuura ve'huan. Ro qua ve'nyano." Lass'aira noted in a dull tone as she started packing up her bed. She hauled it on her back, grabbed her staff and approached Aife surveying on the edge.
"You call me?"

After Aife had explained that she wanted to know whether they could move on Lass'aira had a thoughtful face.
"Mayhaps. I know ways.", she drew her lungs full of the rejuvenating air and looked back towards the others. "They do not. More than one day walk. Night in the open, difficult with wind."

She quietly whispered something incomprehensible but melodic into the wind. Just then a gust of wind picked up the snow gathered on one of the old pillars and blew it over Aife's head. Lass'aira looked at her knowingly.
"More snow next night. More snow, harder to walk."

"So we either stay and most probably get stranded here for a while or press on and risk dying in the night. This is not the choices I like to make."

Aife watched the snow for a moment longer with a worried look, her hands clutching the mantle with tense fingers. She turned back to the squad.

"I know there are several magic users among us. Any of you have anything in your repertoire that would help us move in this weather? Or maybe provide heat and shelter during the night?"

Cedar perked up slightly, making his way over to Aife and Lass'aira. Giving Veritas a withering glare as he passed her by.

"I have a few things that revolve around fire, I don't know how good they will be at helping us move through this storm, but creating a fire shouldn't be a problem. As long as we have things to burn that is."

"I wouldn't mind staying here protected from the rage of the elements but.. things would be a lot more exciting out there. And our resident grouch over here hates the cold too much to let it get to us, right?"

Veritas pats Cedar on the shoulder.
