So, apparently gettin' different people's views is important to the group. It's my turn again so here ya go.
After arrivin' at the base of a very high waterfall, we met a couple of human women who would take us to their village, Unterbaum. We had to climb several hundred stairs dug up through the earth to the top of the falls. It was obviously dug by humans, no pride in their work. Uneven steps and a rope railin' if ya can believe it. Rutger seemed to lose his wind about three quarters of the way and we shamed him into makin' the rest of the climb. It was quite the view at the top and I stayed well away from the edge what with there bein' no proper ramparts and such. The ladies had a cart and drove us to their village.
Unterbaum looks pretty much as all the rest of the human villages do. The village Elder, Vorster, met us when we arrived and seemed pleasant enough. They don't get many visitors so we got a nice healthy dinner for free. Bran shows up, he's the strange one that can turn into a raven, and pretends he doesn't know us. This part I still don't understand .. Oh and they call him Corrobrand or some such thing. After dinner we talk about where we'll be goin'. It seems that some time ago a great chunk of evil fell from the sky and has corrupted the land in the area called the Devil's Bowl. Lots of decay and nasty creatures have sprung up there, so that is a piece of good news for me. It seemed that Gustav didn't feel the same and tried to weasel out. We convinced him to go.
The next mornin' we proceeded to venture into hell. I say this cause we had to learn to use a thing called a canoe. It was the most sad excuse for a boat you can possibly imagine. Brand was teachin' us how to actually flip it and right ourselves since it apparently flips all the time. He was givin' piss poor advice and after several unsuccessful attempts, we retired for the night. The next day started the same and after swallowin' quite a bit of water I realized that there was a better way and easily righted meself.
We took off up the river Narn to the Barren Hills. The first night went by fine other then the vicious blood sucking insects. The next day we made it to a section of the river that was too dangerous to travel so we did somethin' called a portage where you pick up your boat and carry it around the bad part on land. Right as we started to walk we were greeted with a loud growl.
