We quickly establish that the group we previously met were outbound, not the others that we had circled around. The group continues on, with Willow scouting ahead. Willow returns with the news that he has found a large, guarded encampment. After much discussion, we decide that Willow and Irin scout out the camp once night has fallen, leaving Eko, Jarl and Erowyn a short distance back… The scouts have infravision, and Erowyn can look after the remainder that don't. The scouts discover 8 tents surrounding 1 large tent, potentially holding up to 100 cultists. Falling back to the others, we decide that it is far too risky to do much more, and carefully withdraw and head for Scranton. Talith receives his message, informs us that the cult is seriously diminished in number and asks us to help by neutralising a guard outpost while he leads a group of mounted soldiers against the main camp. Once again, Willow scouts ahead but this time is discovered. Willow and Erowyn trade arrows with cultists, Erowyn managing to lose her bow in the process. Eko arrives, and after asking what is going on and spotting one of the enemy, charges on in. Eko annihilates one of the three cultists, and the other two flee. Eko and Erowyn chase down one, with Willow and Irin pursuing the other. As Eko finally closes the gap with his opponent, two more cultists cut him off. Eko stops to deal with this new threat while Erowyn continues to pursue the remaining fleeing cultist. Eko deals with his two opponents quickly, and after several minutes Erowyn closes the gap enough to cut down the cultist with a savage long sword stroke that near-severs the man's spine. We join up at the cultist's camp, only to catch Talith's force mopping up in what appeared to be a relatively easy victory. Several of the warriors tell of the Spider Queen herself fleeing the scene.
