After a rest from last week's action, the Nessian Chord moves through the Silverwood. They encounter a lovely woman, clothed only in her hair, and flanked by two large jungle cats. After ensuring that she and her feline companions are not dangerous, they converse with the woman, whose name is Marah. She ends up inviting them to a crude dinner, which she also shares with the felids. After that, she commences to seduce the characters. Valak goes first, Pretor next, then Tim. Nobody dies for a change. Amadeus, Picket and Xander pass on the experience and Marah is not interested in Grimnok for some reason. After she proves to be insatiable, but still remaining civil, they ask a few questions. Marah really doesn't know anything. Pretor focuses on getting a direct location or other knowledge regarding The Horn of Abbadon with no result. He theorizes that this must be a fey creature [perhaps a nymph or dryad] and needs male humanoids for some purpose, possibly for procreation. Without telling the other characters this, he makes his farewells and the others follow suit, all the while keeping a Banishment at the forefront of his spell list.
Once the characters get themselves cleaned up, they move closer to a putative destination and are set upon by a passel of Trolls. Fireballs get some of them. Group loses both ponies. Grimnok is knocked out. Valak's horse is also eliminated. Six trolls are destroyed, and the possibility exists of more to come by session's end.
DM Edit- fixed spelling of Marah.
