[Time: 5:03 pm MW time]
the party is now about a mile away from the edge of the
mountains and the forests that are abundant on them. Fremea flies
ahead fast to scout ahead. The temperature is a temperate mid 70s
so not too hot or cold. A breeze from the left seems to keep the
Fremea can fly 10 feet per second or about 90,000 feet per
hour which is about 17-18 miles per hour. Far faster than humans or
their horses. The art of flying recon can be tricky to find the
correct place to go or find as things fly past far faster and the brain
has to be trained to decipher what it sees.
The silo notebook, not tree one, did mention a Eagle Rock.
Not a true rock but a overhang. But from the silo it would've been
impossible to see it even with the magical spyglass so he must've known
about it by other methods. The cave drawings / message King Strata
talks about the same thing. The area or cave where a possible
portal is located. It speaks of a rock that has the appearance
looks like a creature of flight.
Fremea gets to the edge of forest in only 5 minutes.
She flies over the tops not really looking much down as she watches the
mountains. There are a half dozen mounts in sight. All but
one is rounded and last one is pointed. Rounded ones imply recent
volcanic activity. As well as a lot of rock slides. Fremea
flies higher about a thousand feet to get a better view. She spends
30 minutes so far back and forth looking over 3 mountains. Soon
she'll have to go back to meet the party.
The fourth mountain she covers the north side and finally on
the east side is a overhang that perks her interest. Doing this by
land would've taken hours to find so a Faerry is certainly a great
bonus. She dives down to about 50 feet and spots the
overhang. The mountain is about 2-2.5 thousand feet high so a small
one indeed. The overhang looks to be dark black and brown that juts
up and out. The base juts out at 45 degrees for about 30
feet. Then levels out to a flat surface that is a strip of rock 40
feet long and 30 feet wide. It looks like a cross with the sides
jutting out 20 feet on each side from the middle. So in fact with
the sides its about 70 feet. The 'sides' jut up and down like a arc
which from below does look like a possible 'wing'. The front juts
up about 3 feet then out and curse like a 'head' and 'beak'. This
has to be Eagle Rock as seen from below. But in fact its just a natural
overhang. While it is not uniform in proportion the overall
structure is lop-sided if truly study it.
Fremea studies the rocky surface of the mountain. It
raises upwards another thousand get or so at a incline of about 40
degrees. Below is a forest where the tree line is about 200 feet
below. Fremea scans for a cave and spots what could be depressions
covered by plant life.
But as she moves closer she hears a sudden crash of a tree
falling below. It is followed by more crashes and noises. If a tree
falls by itself it may only make 1 noise. If its this noisy there
must be something behind it. She moves lower and below the canopy
of trees. That's when she spots a forest giant knocking over a 50
foot tree he just knocked down. Fremea can also seeing about 80
feet away another forest giant sitting against a tree eating
something. Besides this giant is a human skeleton in a pile of
bones. Unless it was a elf? Then again it could've been a dwarf it
is hard to determine size from bones.
Fremea wonders if these are just resident Giants or
Guardians? She decides it is time to report back. As its been
40-45 minutes and party should be at forest edge soon.
[Time: 5:50 pm MW time]
The party nears the forest now maybe a few hundred feet
away. Barbosa looks to the Bes king. “This seems all too
easy? What are the odds of us finding a silo and the chance of finding a
cave in all of this wilderness? Whoever used that Silo thing...was
there for a reason. In all this terrain hundreds of square miles we
just find it by luck?”
King Strate shrugs, “Bes and his fellow gods are
mysterious. They may not have direct influence but indirect
influence may be possible. It does seem...odd that those females
came at the exact time we did.”
[Time: 6:04 pm MW time]
As the party reaches the forest Fremea finds them. She
lands to explain what she saw. It is probably 2 miles to the north
east and she explains about the 2 forest giants.
Barbosa turns to Dorhak, “what's the plan?”
A short update but heard from Tobie so figured why not. A couple
days early. That way my last 2 days off can chill before
Xmas. Happy Christmas and Holidays to all out there. I may
delay next update as its only a day after Xmas and folks may be busy or
away out of town. So may do it next week (Tuesday) or such. We
probably have 1 or 2 updates for 2020. I'm sure we'll be glad to
see 2020 leave! Happy Solstice! Below marching order may be
