Uktar 3, 1372 DR (9:00 AM) Deep Wastes: Szith Morcane to Lake of Shadows
"I foresee another slow day," grumbles Veracity.
"How about if I conjure a phantom steed for Hazen?" suggests Brianna. "He'll have no trouble keeping up with us then. And, since the steed water walks, Hazen won't even get his feet wet in the streams."
"Yeah! Yeah!" says Hazen.
Veracity brightens. "Great idea, Brianna!"
Brianna summons the shadowy mount for the gray dwarf and the group moves on, traveling half again as fast as it had the day before. After about five hours of travel, seven very large bats swoop down and attack. The doughty adventurers dispatch the dire bats without difficulty.
The party travels another another four miles before stopping for the day. They eat, mostly dried rations, and carry on some quiet discussion, finally setting the same watches as the previous night. Nothing untoward happens while Hazen and Kress stay up. When those two retire, they wake up Veracity and Brianna, and put away Kress's glow gem.
The two women sit in the dark, silent, Brianna watching the passage ahead and Veracity the passage behind. Their companions sleep, each sleeper arrayed about ten feet from any other sleeper.
