Further searching of the area surrounding the ruined structure yielded nothing further. Lady Emyralda healed Cando’s wounds before the party moved on. After about another hour’s travel, the goal came into view.

Soft light filters through the branches of the forest, which is still and silent. A rough platform formed of interlocking hexagonal stone columns rises thirty feet above the forest floor, abutting the foot of the mountain. A rickety wooden staircase attached to the side of the cliff leads to the top of the platform, which is covered by a ramshackle collection of boxy wooden buildings surrounded by a patchwork steel fence.

As the Pathfinders viewed the fortification through the trees, Stabem looked up and spotted danger. “Goblins! They are in the trees!”

Lady Emyralda moved forward and blasted the plant monster with her Fire Bolt. The spell-like ability hit dealing 6 damage.

The creature continued to hold onto Ro-Mahn and pummeled the rogue for 2 damage. Further it started to suck the air from his lungs. The creature visible healed some of the damage inflicted by Lady Emyralda. Ro-Mahn resisted additional negative effect for being in the monster’s grasp.

Stabem moved up and skewered the monster dealing 3 damage with his rapier. Using the distraction to his advantage, Ro-Mahn struggled free of the plant’s grasp. Barnacleez pulled out his wand and cast Magic Missile. The spell hit the monster and dealt 3 damage.

Cando charged ahead with a bellow changing course to avoid Stabem who stepped in front of him. The half-orc swung his double axe but missed the monster. Wahesh strode cautiously forward and swung his longsword at the plant. The blow landed dealing 10 damage and killed the monster.

A search of the area did not turn up any additional monsters. Barnacleez found a metal box hidden in the foundation of the ruins. Inside he found a single feather. With the use of a Detect Magic spell and study, the sorcerer concluded, “This feather is an egg. When it hatches, the bird will tell me its name.”

The party stalked forward with Ro-Mahn in front followed closely by Cando and Wahesh. Lady Emyralda cast a Guidance spell on the rogue before he took the lead.

Barnacleez pulled out his wand and looked around alertly. Stabem followed the group in a stealthful manner.

Ro-Mahn tread forward searching the perimeter of the cottage ruins when something in the tall weeds attacked him. The rogue took 2 damage as a man-sized plant pummeled him and grabbed hold, attaching itself to its victim.

The next day, the party came across the remains of a small farmstead.

Crumbling stone walls mark the site of what was once a small cottage, but is now merely a ruin. The remains of a garden, now in disarray, surround the dilapidated and collapsed cottage.

Ro-Mahn tumbled around and behind the animal. The rogue stabbed the wolverine while flanking with Cando. His rapier pierced the monster dealing 7 damage. The gore covered wolverine returned the attack, assaulting the rogue with its claws and teeth. All three attacks landed dealing a total of 18 damage and dropped the rogue.

Cando swung his double axe twice. The fighter hit with both stokes dealing 17 damage and killing the monster.

Lady Emyralda used her Rebuke Death ability to stabilize Ro-Mahn, healing 2 damage from the rogue. She applied an additional use of the ability to heal another 2 damage and return the rogue to consciousness.

The Demon’s Bile on the goblin corpse was easily destroyed with applications of Rebuke Death spells and cold iron weapons. A search of the corpse after the cleansing yielded a small suit of masterwork studded leather armor and a small composite longbow fitted for a +1 STR bonus.

After searching the area, Lady Emyralda used her healing magics to restore Ro-Mahn to full health.

The party rested for the night and continued to follow the goblin trail the next morning.

Ro-Mahn moved forward, drew his sling and fired a bullet at the animal. The shot hit the wolverine and dealt 8 damage. This enraged the creature and it charged the rogue. The wolverine slashed wildly with its claw but missed the target.

Cando charged forward and swung is double-axe. The blow landed and dealt 7 damage to the monster. Barnacleez shook his magic missile wand, Missy, and fired a spell at the monster. The missile flew forward but fizzled when it struck, dealing no damage. Lady Emyralda move up next to Cando and attacked with her scimitar but missed.
