ooc:  I mean, Kondor and Gundrabu just started running, and no one else followed.  

Don't worry, when we get a chance, Kondor will track you guys down and help - or avenge!

As Kondor pulls his canoe into the stream he suddenly notices the rest of the group has fled by another route. He and the cleric are alone.
The 2 lizards remain atop the ridge.

Kondor helps Gundrabu with the least damaged canoe, and they launch. The barbarian is certain he'll be able to find the others - if they survive - provided he can be healed by the cleric to his full strength.

Kondor helps Gundrabu with the canoes.  "You get one ready, I'll get this other one, and we'll be ready for two passengers"

Kondor stays with Gundrabu, looking over the his shoulder as the cleric stoops to pick up the crystal weapon, but otherwise helping him along as they move.

ooc:  is the crystal weapon from way back when those undead acolytes attacked at the sanctuary?  That's the only crystal weapon I remember.

Kondor follows Gundrabu, intending to protect the cleric from the lizard should it follow them.

Kondor wants to head to the viking's camp immediately, possibly bringing the canoes with them (just in case they're useful).

Did the beastment in clothes have boots?

Kondor is up and ready to move, the barbarian in him always ready for danger. He takes his things, helps those near him, all in the blink of an eye.

"Whatever comes our way, move! If there's no safe place, we'll find one. Quickly, quietly!" Kondor's voice is a low whisper, intended to be heard only by those near to him. 

ooc:  Happy holidays, all!

To Kondor Tillak says, "The huntsman says that she knocked you jnconcious because you moved when she told you not to. She bears you or us no ill will."

Kondor perks an eyebrow at Tillak.  "I recognize no one's right to tell me what to do. Not her, not you, no one. I kneel to no crown, and walk this land as I please. And should someone not wish me to speak, then don't interrupt me when I'm watching a dragon."

Kondor looks to where Gundrabu and Votin are sitting.  Does it look like a campsite?

Kondor scoffs, then speaks to Sigrun - "What is this squatting in the dirt about? You're a hunter, show us to your cabin or cave, and light a fire. Unless the dark of Hyperborea has changed since I last saw the sky, Boreas has no pity on fools who stand about in the open."

The barbarian strolls to the two on the ground, offering to help them to their feet, but he keeps talking to Sigrun. 
"And since you're so eager to have me close my eyes, you can take watch while we sleep," Kondor yawns. "Until I'm rested and fed, huntress, if you knock me with that spear again you'll have to carry me."

Standing up, Kondor is very different from how he looked on the hill top. He is huge, head and shoulders above the stature of normal men - and his shoulders are broad indeed, even for a Kimmerian. When (if?) he helps up the cleric and the newly-healed viking, the effort is slight enough that it is clear Kondor is one of the strongest of mortal men on Hyperborea. 

"Well? Where to now? Those beast men and their master's sorcery are to blame for my lack of boots. We're in sorry state, and can waste no more time."

ooc: back again. Got promotion at work, schedule change, plus distractions. Tired!

Are the cleric and barbarian sleeping, or do they look like they were just speared to death?

And while following the foot prints, were they walking together or apart?

The cleric and the barbarian are sitting up.
The lone footprints were made by a female, probably viking.

Ah, but is the spear pointed towards the resting cleric and barbarian, or is she pointing it in a different direction or otherwise non-threatening manner so far as they're concerned?

Kondor whispers to Tillak - "What happened while I've been out? When was the last you saw Gundrabu or that viking woman? I'll track them from this campsite. That's three people, so unless there's someone else who's joined us, that could be three beastmen. If it is, our cleric (and whoever, so long as she doesn't hit me in the face for no reason) will need our help. If it isn't... well, I'm ready for some answers. Let's go, but quietly."

Quietly, Kondor uses his hunter's skills and his barbarian's instincts to follow the trail of the cleric and others - hoping that it is they who are the trio, not some new threat.

Kondor grins. "Aye, let's go see. Perhaps this valkyrie can explain herself - or give a reason to intrude upon our band's misfortunate journey, like a campsite or hunter's cabin so we can get a proper night's rest! Or shears for this beard, or boots for these Kimmerian feet."

Kondor heads down to find Gundrabu, hopefully with Tillak at his side.

[Jehosaphat! That sucks!]

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 looks for Gundrabu.

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