Everyone makes friends
Derek talks about a ‘Whitestone Council’ forming the isle Sancrist. They are meeting to form a cogent defense against the Dragonarmies. That is where he intends to go, with or without the dragon orb.
Haarald(IceFolk leader) says that there are some boats, frozen in the ice, that they may be able to break out and use over at Ice Mountain bay to the west. He hasn’t looked at them closely though.
Elistan teaches their ‘Cleric’ Raggart about the true gods.
Gilthanis wants to learn how they walk so easily in the snow.. Haarald says it would take at least a week to learn.
Next day, the camp gets attacked by a large army of 200 Minotaurs and 500 Thanoi. The Wind has completely stopped, so the icefolk can’t use their boats to escape.
Party agrees to help hold back the forces from the boats until the wind picks up, along with Haarald’s 100 or so warriors.
Party effectively holds back the first assault on their part of the wall.
Party fails to stop a flank attack from the south which sets fire to 2 of the boats.
A white dragon makes a pass overhead, panicing most of the icefokl warriors, uses its ice breath to kill all the warriors still on the wall and then wings off. Its rider apparently content with that contribution.
Just then, a small breeze starts to pick up
2 large thuds bang against the icewall near the party, as a new set of forces crests the wall.
The party will have to hold these off as the rest of the icefolk warriors get into the boats and the wind gives them enough momentum to escape.
