  1. Nefarious Tendancies - Drow and Wolves and Spiders, Oh My!

    Aeris, Graven and Sardis recover for the remainder of the night above an abandoned butcher’s shop. At dawn, Sardis goes out to explore the village alone. Aeris and Graven rest and spend the morning in casual conversation while they recooperated.

    Sardis did not find much of interest in the village. He did grab some basic supplies as he went from building to building. The villages had taken most of their valuables and food when they fled. The werewolves had taken anything that remained. ...

    As I was typing up the story in case I wanted to reuse it later, ...
