Patrol was sent to steal a golden egg from a sect of the Cult of the Serpent, which was believed to contain the holy spawn of the snake goddess Kzari. On the way, they encountered a group of peasants that attacked them savagely and fought without mercy or regard for their own safety. As such they inflicted more damage than they should have been able to, but were eventually beaten down.

Following a smoke trail to the burning farmstead that was probably the home of the peasants, they found it to be looted. They followed a large number of tracks leading to the east, reaching an oasis just before dark. As they approached, a large, starfish-like creature rose out of the sand and attacked them; though they suffered a bit of damage, the creature eventually retreated beneath the sands leaking a foul-smelling ichor. The patrol moved on from the waterhole, but not before finding a filled pack presumably left by a previous victim of the creature.

The tracks from the water hole led the patrol to a small canyon which opened out into a large grassy valley, where several small farmsteads were clearly evident and where a group was faintly visible moving towards a large cavern opening in the far eastern wall of the valley. The patrol backtracked to a side canyon to wait for dark, then started moving stealthily towards the cavern mouth on the other side of the grassy valley.

Approaching the cavern mouth, they saw there were two guards on duty; as they got closer, they realized they were orcs. Releasing the livestock from the nearby corral to provide cover, the patrol fought the sentries and were eventually victorious. Although the combat did make some noise and one orc did at least let out a couple of yells, no other cultists were awakened (unknown to the troopers, this was due to the amount of beer stolen from the farmstead which they had imbibed.)

Epilogue: the patrol was able to stealth into the camp and steal the golden egg, then returned to the fort through a circular route in order to avoid the searching cultists.

Patrol was sent out to investigate a raid by unknown attackers on a small oasis west of the outpost inhabited by a retired soldier (Grenault) and his family. Special instructions were to find Grenault’s missing 6-year-old daughter Eday.

Arriving at the oasis, the patrol was ambushed by the attackers, gnolls from the FaceRipper clan; after defeating them, additional tracks were found heading west. Stashing the armor/loot and following the tracks, the patrol came upon the scene of a battle: bloody sands, discarded weapons, and pony-sized tracks leading away, but no bodies.

A mile or two away, the patrol encountered a giant ant hill, where warrior ants were busy ripping apart some gnoll bodies while the little girl huddled fearfully on a rocky outcropping. The ants were distracted by most of the patrol while Trooper Vekio climbed up to the top of the nearby mesa and pulled the girl out on a rope.

Returning to the oasis, the patrol gathered up the loot and returned in victory to the outpost.

Session Report, 6/27/14
Characters: Radmilla (Allen), Kronk (Charlie), Elise (Kelsey), Caesarina (Shannon), Ravekio (Jeff) , Edmund (Sean), Willum (NPC Redshirt), Arturo (NPC)
A small patrol was sent out under Sergeant Willam to recover item and (if possible) a horse belonging to the Company Paymaster Lorenzo, including his enchanted account book, which had been stolen by an ogre ambush.
Ambushed by Zuigars, Sgt Willam was killed. The party routed the Zuigars, defeated young giant scorpions, and avoided a suspected giant ant lion before reaching the ogres cave in the Giant's Teeth Mountains. After a brief battle, the ogres were slain, the items recovered (other than the horse, which had been eaten), and the cavern ransacked. It was discovered that the cave extended much further into the mountains, but the patrol needed to return the items and wasn't equipped for exploration.
