RECAP:

The brothers were planning, practicing, and scouting around their Ballinhost camp for about a month and a half when approached by Jakzak; an escaped prisoner of the Halflings from Fort Grey Lichen.  He asked that we rescue Runty Brother's trainer; Kaklan the diseased, and the other 12 Gnolls who are imprisoned there.  We all agreed and set out on our quest through the forest to the edge of the Boiled Forest where Fort Grey Lichen is.

While traveling, Foost teleports in with Saladien and asks that he join us.  we agree and continue uninterrupted through the forest.  After a week and a half or so, we notice a storm roll in and unnatural lightning strikes about 3 miles off.  Saladien sends his hawk and other woodland creatures out to scout.  The hawk screeches back in fear and Tarkin rushes in the direction of the lightning.  After a few moments, we all spot a flying giant with a glowing weapon descending upon us from the sky.  It demands our surrender and threatens us if we don't agree to its demands.  Clearly the giant hasn't had much dealings with Gnolls as his threats only lead to multiple castings of Hunter's Mercy and various other battle ready spells.

Without warning, a huge Griffon swoops down and pounces on Ozzle.  It attacks viciously, grapples him, then ascends to the air with Ozzle in its talons.  The brothers react quickly and assault the beast with arrow, magic, and harpoon.  Ozzle is attacked again and dropped to his inevitable death.  Ozzle's puma like reflexes allow him to grab onto the Griffon's talon, and with a gasp of desperate energy, Ozzle unleashes a fiery blast that scorches the beast and ignites the sky with flame.  The beast drops Ozzle and flees, barely alive.  Hates Fey Brother musters his blood magic to cast Feather Fall on Ozzle and he lands safely, albeit drained of his ability scores and HP.

Sadly, Ozzle's fireworks display attracted the attention of the giant and dozens of Fey surrounding the area.  The giant lands and attacks all the remaining brothers on the ground.  The brothers fight ferociously, but the Fey blind most of them and the giant fights his way through our ranks.

In a mighty display of battle prowess, the giant cuts his way through Almost as Big Brother and Always Angry Brother.  Both fall to their deaths.  The remaining brothers and Saladien continue their assault forcing the giant to flee.  The Fey all withdraw when their leader flees and they begin to use healing wands on him as he makes his way to the air.  Before fleeing though, he swoops up Biggest Brother, takes him 200 feet in the air, then drops him to his apparent death.  Biggest Brother falls while flipping off the giant and swinging helplessly in the air.  Blind Brother uses his blood magic to grant Biggest Brother immunity to falling damage and he lands safely on the ground. 

The remaining party members and the animal companions gather up the dead, the injured, and the blind and begin to regroup.

The light rain continues to fall and a deep quite falls over the area other than the rain.  The animals, other than those that belong to you, have fled.  Those remaining are quite.

Your fallen brother's bodies are lying next to each other.

Cackle drags Ozzle back to the rest of you.

Jakzak stays out of the way and mostly out of sight.

What do Gnolls usually do in this situation?  What are the traditions of our people and our clan?  Would we burn them, bury them, feed them to animals?  Whatever it is we would normally do is what we should do.  After we pay our respects, of course, we'll need to avenge their deaths.

Tarkin growls.. we will build a funeral pyre and burn them.  That way it will serve as a visible warning all the way to scale home that they will be avenged!!!

Honored gnolls would get a funeral pyre.  Criminals and the like would be fed to the animals.  Anyone in between would be buried.

Agreed brother. 

May our brothers rest.

May our vengeance be swift and agonizing to our enemies.
