We awake this morning, still in pursuit of the Bloodreavers.
Our path leads into the mountains. The Thunder Peaks. Soon, the moutains swallow us. The East Way is not traveled much, this side of Winterhaven. The road is in rough shape. Overgrown and rock strewn in places. But it is dry here. The Bloodreavers will be moving faster now. We must hurry!
Once, before the Spellplague, the East Way was a major trade route to Cormyr. No more. In the chaos that followed that apocalypse, it years rolled by before the peoples of Faerun had rebuilt. In that time, the Eldeth Valuuthra, a group of extremely hostile and violent elves had taken over the eastern Hullack Forest, on the Cormyr side of the Thunder Peaks. The Eldeth Valuuthra have fought the other races, most notably humanity, for centuries. They blame us for the rape of the forests, for stealing their trees and their land. Now, travel down the East Way into Cormyr for a non-elf is near suicide.
We spend the entire day wending our way through the valleys and bluffs of the mountains.
We make camp for the night, hopeful that tomorrow will bring us within sight of the Bloodreavers.
