Goblins come to camp drawn in by the smells of the ruined rabbit. The party hid in an attempt to see what they did. While the green-skins poked about the campsite, they saw the party trying to hide. Want to fight and prove their might, they attempted to drive the party off so they can loot the camp in peace. The party decided that driving off the goblins was prudent and with the mighty axe swing, Mad Jack was able to drive away from the hunting party. Frightening them with his prowess.

On the way to, they managed to make it some way there standing in front of the first tree of the world. They had managed to fill up their waterskins with runoff. Here they took to camp, while the drainage was drying up. Mad Jack attempted to sew the rip in Samson’s bag but ran out of thread to complete the job. Rasotto dug deep, and his body managed to get rest and healed sickness by itself without difficulties. Entering the tree by boost and standing in the center, they realized that the chute down into the tunnels below was filled with web, their rope intertwined with it. So up to the spiral staircase, they travelled, warry of railing-less edge. Up they went until they reach a catwalk that jutted into the center of the hollow tree. There at the end, another catwalk sat suspended in web at an awkward angle. Rasotto inspected the sticky silk stands and vines and decided the jump could be made. After the harrowing jump, they continued the staircase until it was no more. All that was left was to climb upwards on the now thick vines, around some 100 ft high. Catwalks, promenades and tree branches greeted them after a heroic effort to climb the branches.

At the top, there were several body-sized shapes wrapped in web, along with the inner walls. They cut one open and found the desiccated remains of an elf. They had a circlet and a hammer. The warhammer had dwarven runes etched along with the head. Grabbing the contents and noting that they should search the rest when they had time, they continued outside. The branches are long and flat, some as big as trees themselves, the lowest of which is 200 feet in the air. They suspect the dark shape in the web to be the cart that was seen from below. Again noting that they will need to come back to try and cut it down, they continued unto the branches, which are covered in a thick web. The audience sees a spider giant and quite sneaks up behind the adventurers. We will have to come back next time to see what happens.
