We were asked by the captain of the guard to go off in search of the bandits. He thanked us for our assistance for protecting the eastern flank of the camp and we were allowed to keep any of spoils from the bandits we killed. It ended up being quite the sum for a day’s work. The settlement has agreed to tend the extra horses and keep our extra equipment safe during our journey.
An archer by the name of Faruq has joined the gnome and I in the search for the bandits. Our trip was interrupted by a pack of scorpions. It didn’t take long for us dispatch the creatures, though one did cut me quite badly.
After a few more hours of travel, we rested for the evening. Faruq doesn’t seem to be handling the heat very well. I spent some time practicing with my bardiche and believe I have figured out how to shorten the grip. We shall see what tomorrow brings.
