Morning

A wagon off the side of the road.
It looks like one of the horse hitches is broken and no horses are in evidence.
And a dead body.
It looks like it has been attacked by a wild animal- a large section is missing from the center of the body.
A giant cat pounced on Garreth from within the wagon.
Tiger

Checked the body
Sketch the Tiger
The back of the body has also been attacked.
Human
Dressed in a game keeper attire.
A key.
Chunks of meat are inside the wagon with a makeshift bed of straw. Hole in the front of the wagon big enough for a claw.
Dead less than a day. Looks like he was heading north.
Satchel with some coins in it. Rolled up note inside.
The wagon says something about a circus on the side.
Use this money for paying the fee for entering Whisper.
15 gold in the satchel.
A number of animals painted on the side of the wagon.
There do not appear to be any tracks.
The Intrepid Big Top
Buried the body- poetic benediction.

We arrived that evening at Hilfer (127).
Adventurer’s Guild – Bran
We’ve been waiting for this for quite a while.
Gareth asked about the circus- why yes, there was a couple of wagons come around- they saw how small we were and said there’s no money here…
Non board- just ask!
We asked…
Been hearing a coule three folks said hill giant’s coming around.
They are terrified of them- everyone banded together.
Reports come in say they are acting strange- they don’t look good. They look quite bad.
Probably not more than an hours’ walk towards the south.
Draws us a rough map

Breakfast
Asked her about the hill giants- heard the occasional stories about the three giants that typically don’t give it no mind since we don’t have anything they want. They seem to say that they look to be not looking too good- might be sick.
We left the wagon with a local farm
We found the three of them- they were cooking a cow over a fire.
Three hill giants- the first has long, all matted, and oily hair with a terrible scar across his chest.
Two puncture wounds on his left arm surrounded by red, infected flesh.
Other patches of dry skin that looks easiated.
Second one has a shock of red hair- flesh is dry and patchy. He uses his free hand to repeatedly scratching off huge patches of skin.
Shiny gauntlets and holding onto his club with the intensity of a drowning man hanging onto a lifeboat.
The third giant is nearly bald with patchy hair and a mad look about his cloudy eyes. He peers about as if he’s trying to focus or wake up from a bad nightmare. Wearing only a pair of baggy trousers and a hat and he’s sweating profusely. His bare chest and arms gleam with moisture.

Xaxis called out to the Hill Giants.
One of them responded: Look at the funny little people for their cow.

My friend- you look sick. Can we help you? We are Clerics after all…

So friends- how can we help?
You help us now?
They argue- puny one can’t help us?
I don’t know brother- could be trap…
I said, surely you have nothing to fear from us- let us try to help…

No funny business, small guy…
Xaxis did a heal check on one
Scar – Raging case of mummy rot with Red Ache as well. (ton of con loss)
Why you no fix Jotti and Motti
Alright, we wait- you stay with us, no funny business. Come- eat cow.

Heading north to Whisper
Half day’s travel

We get about two hours out- a gnarly looking creature steps out with a note pinned to it’s chest.

Something like a cross between a great ape and a beetle. Two compound like a beetle and two like an ape. Covered with hairs. (Umber Hulkish)
Armor plates cover all of it’s body. It looks partially decaying.
The sign says, “Have Fun and Die”

Hold onto the note.
