There are human boot prints leading ahead to the stream.

The figures are too far in this darkness.

Kondor and Tillak round the south ridge and see 3 figures moving in the dark halfway up the north ridge across the stream.

Kondor and Tillak grab their weapons and leave the small camp, the fire still flickering in the dark.
The path is unclear but they follow the distant sound of the water. 

[Kondor roll d6]
[Tillak roll d6]

I mean, sure, but also nah: this game ain't fer people who like it easy!!! This is a game for people who walk ten miles to and from the game, uphill both trips, in five feet of snow - pausing only to fight and eat polar bears attacking en route!
Chuck Norris played this game, and quit because he couldn't take it!

But yeah, eventually I could use a full heal. It's been months and I miss being able to fight stuff without risking instant death.

[Kondor +100XP for reality check!]

Kondor looks for Gundrabu.

ooc: Did Kondor get any more hit points, or is he just at 2hp now?

Kondor remains in sad shape with 2 hp, even after his brief rest and the seabird.

Sigrun crosses the stream and runs up the steep incline of the north ridge to the cleric and fallen barbarian. The cleric cradles the dying boy's head clearing the airway from the heavy flows of blood.
[But what exactly does the viking do?]

Sigrun will attempt to staunch the flow of blood, suture his wounds, stuff them with herbs and medicinal plants to stave off infection. Anything she can do to help stabilize him.

[Sigrun +100XP for saving the stranger]

Votin is not able to offer resistance to Gundrabu's efforts...

"If you mean me no harm , take what you need but remember those who have none."

Turning his head Votin tries to make out the others around him.

"The lizard did not kill me then? So be it...I will join the spirits another time.

I am called Votin...I am of the Wolf Striders...we live among the wilds somewhat aways from here.

What became of the mighty warriors fighting the man beasts?

They must be powerful indeed to face the beasts without weapons or clothing?"

 

[Votin +900XP for taking on certain death.]

Tillak looks at Kondor, relieved. "I'm glad that you're well, Brother. Here, I have a piece of seabird for you. The huntsman has gone to the river to look for Gundrabu. We should go and find them." 

Tillak +1HP

Gundrabu devours one sliver of dried deer and one hard biscuit. Then, if nothing transpires during his hasty meal, he wraps himself in his furs and goes to sleep.

Gundrabu +1HP.
The ridge is too steep for Gundrabu to sleep - even in his exhausted condition.

2 large empty Leather pouches

Kondor jerks awake instinctively reaching for his sword. Disoriented, the throb in his swollen jaw reminds him of recent events. Night has come. A small fire crackles in a makeshift pit, its wispy smoke fills his lungs.
Tillak sits beside him chewing on a piece of rawhide.

Gundrabu places his hands within the pack, unless Votin makes to remove them with his axe.

Only one hand will fit through the bag's opening with the barbarian in his current position.

The pain is one that Votin has not experienced...he thrashes around...not able to move...as if being held back.

In a moment of lucidity, his vision clears and he manages to utter...

"Who are you?"

"Where are my ancestors?"

"I don't see them!"

 

“The Kraken has clutched you back from your ancestors, for I need your help. I am weak, famished, and I need to sleep. Watch over me” — Gundrabu looks alternately at Votin and Sigrun -+ “and if either of you have a bite of meal, give it to me.”

If neither are forthcoming with viands, Gundrabu will riffle through Votin’s belongings.

Gundrabu’s intention is to satisfy his stomach, then wrap himself in his furs and fall asleep right there.

Votin is in no condition to protect the cleric. The barbarian's axe lays nearby. His pack remains strapped to him but Gundrabu can get an hand inside its opening.

Votin dreams of entering the world of spirits but the guiding light seems a little dim...kind of.

The light extinguishes and Votin wakes under the night sky. Unimaginable pain shoots through his entire body. He writhes as two strangers hold him to the ground.

The cleric is impressed with this Viking's skills. She works as quickly to save the young barbarian's life as if he were of her own clan. He will take much time to heal but he will live.

Night is upon you and neither moon has risen. The steady gurgle of the stream below seems louder.

Tillak devours the meat, but is unable to rouse the sleeping barbarian.
[Does he save the last piece or eat it?]
