At the first light the casting of the Aegis of the Hearth where made and the newly arrived magi departed from one and other, some into the forest, others away in wagons and a few left at the covenant grounds.
You set of into the forested areas in the vicinity of the forest and started your sweep on the companionship of some of the covenants hunters. The forest begun to cast its depressing gloom as soon as you entered under its canopy. And the area began to appear less a less comforting. If this land where this hostile to humans, what where to expect of its denizens?
As the day passed by several villages where visited few more that a couple of farmsteads or timber lodes bundled together. The villages where all surly and unfriendly to the visiting magi. Not even the children seemed to play or look cheerful as the magi passed by. The party walked back and forth through the forest and it seemed as the paths in the woods changed as the magi went by, nothing looking in the way that it should. As the light begun to decrease there where even more difficult to find the path that lead back. Soon mist began to rise out of the ground and the visibility decreased even further and the baying of wild animal could be heard in the distance.
