Current player map
Edan, Su and Thenus, having been captured by Gnolls, find themselves in a dark cell along with Minimus (Maximus' brother) and Wang Du. Also in the cell are Jute's father and Bonham a dim -witted warrior along with other travelers that have been asailed by the Gnolls.   Children  were corraled in a separate cell.  

During their imprisonment they heard their orcish jailers mention someone called the Big'uy. 

The only thing to do was attempt an escape by feigning that someone is sick.  An Orc, along with Gnoll guards looked in on the prisoners. After a quick attempt to overpower the guard in the cell failed, Edan and Thenus reached out of the cell and grabed the orc guard with the keys and, after breaking his arm, escaped and battled the gnolls with clubs. 

Donning the gnolls armor and freeing the other prisoners the party delveed deeper into the Gnoll caves looking to free others but soon came face to face with The Big'uy, a whinny Beholder!

In the attempt, Bonham was killed and the rest of the party along with the freed prisoners were placed back into their cells - all to be food for the Beholder who had been controling the Gnolls to be his slaves using his magic his magic.

Prisoners once again and slowly being fed to the Beholder, Miniums attempted to communicate with a rat to help gain their freedom.  In exchange for a shiny object, the rat agrees to steal the cell keys from the Gnoll guards, which he does.  Freed once again, the party rescued the children and sneaked through the tunnels, killing any Gnoll they came across. 

With freedom finally gained they work their way through Brushwood and find the north-south road between Larm and Fishersville. As the Gnolls close in to attach the party are befriended by a pair of mercenaries seeking Baron Blackmoor's killers.  The Mercenaries escorted the beleaguered escapees back to Fishersville as the Gnolls closed in.  

The town is warned about the Beholder and the Gnolls which have taken up residence in the woods.
