The Party followed a trail southward, and saw smoke rising in the foothills of the mountains to the east.
They discovered an ancient keep which was inhabited by leucrotta and ettins.
After clearing the keep, they barricaded the main gate and camped for the night.
During the night hippogriff flew into the courtyard, followed closely by griffon that were hunting them. The group fought off the griffins and saved two of the hippogriff, which flew away.
The party’s adventures are continued in the post called The Keep – Golem Lab.
