Adoett waits for Gorin and the group to finish their inspection of the bodies, and says "unless there are any objections, I'd like to move them off the path. We don't have time to bury them, but surely we can be more civilized than leaving them where they lay among the carts."

He also tries memorize any faces that he can. (Autohypnosis Memorize 8+9 = 17 > DC 15, success

"Well this is kind of unpleasant." Koko will comment as she looks to see if anything was left behind in the wagons, afterall knowing if the point was the cargo or not could be useful. Not to mention if it were still intact a recovery team could come to complete the journey with it. "I have to wonder why it was attacked in the first place, probably not a lot of loot to be had for the trouble if they have left the dragonshards behind."

Edit:
Spotting the fact that the shards have indeed been taken she ponders, "How many loads do you figure it would take to empty out that many shards?"

As she does work her way through the scene she keeps her eyes open for any possible messages left behind, either by the first or second encounters.

+22 bluff roll 16 = 38

(d'oh!)

Key detail: the cargo of dragonshards is indeed, gone. There's no wheelbarrow tracks or anything like that, though. Must've been carried off in baskets or sacks.

Gorin does what he can to clean up any tracks the party made (after everything).

After everything's and everybody's done (though maybe before Gorin cleans up our tracks), Leah gathers everybody to share findings, conclusions and to discuss what to do and where to go from now on. Seeing how she didn't find much of anything, really, she's looking to the trackers and checkers (and Ahz, since he's the most concerned party) for suggestions.

"I suppose the real question before we try to go after either the original brigands or the later ones who probably attacked our wayward investigator, do we have a good set of tracks to follow either group?" Koko asks, feeling relatively pragmatic, not that she could follow a giant across a sandy plain.

Unless someone objects, Adoett is going to start gathering the remains, and bringing them over to sit at the base of a tree. If there is a tarp in one of the wagons, he then uses it to cover the bodies, as a sort of crude burial.

Goodbery uses Sense Poison to try to verify poison on vial.
Wisdom check: 13+4 = 17 vs DC 20 fail. I still determine if had been poisoned.

He will also use this on any arrow shafts that they might find.
Wisdom checks: 11+4 fail, 8+4 fail, 18+4 success

( there's only one set of tracks leading away from the area, with some bodies dragged off along with it. Gorin notices it seems to coincide with the 2nd skirmish. )

Goodberry verifies that many of the arrows had definitely been poisoned.

( Gorin: make 4 more survival checks to proceed )

Gorin follows the trails of what appears to be dragged-off bodies from the 2nd fight. They led into the jungle by only a few hundred feet, before arriving at a pit where five bodies were unceremoniously dumped into. An examination of their rotting corpses reveal that...
(1) they died probably close to a week ago, the stench is already quite horrible thanks to the climate
(2) while their valuable have been plundered, they still bear House Deneith identification and markings
(3) they were again, ambushed. Bodies peppered by arrows, some of them poisonous

Shurya is not among the dead in this pit.

Trails of several lightfooted humanoids -- somewhere between half to a full dozen -- also led away from the pit, heading deeper into the jungle, although without any dragged bodies this time. However, Gorin did notice something shining in the tall undergrowth, just around where the trail departs from the pit. Pushing aside the leaves, he finds what appears to be a signet ring of sorts: nonmagical apart for an Arcane Mark emblazoned into the gem, and sized for thinner fingers, either a woman or just an elf.

( anything else you'd like to do before continuing? -- at which point I need 3 more Survival checks xD )

"I'm getting concerned about these poisoned arrows. I will need an hour to refocus to protect us against poison. Gorrin, how confident are you that you can follow the trail if it goes cold another hour?"

"I'm getting worried about feral packs of Dark Elves out to kill and eat us. Do you think if I looked like one they would be more or less likely to shoot me?" Koko asks the others, only half joking.

"Unless the sky opens up, the trail should endure." Gorin responds.

It's a good thing that the rainy season hasn't arrived yet, otherwise the trail would have gone cold after days of rain. But with some difficulty, Gorin manages to track the trails through the jungle's undergrowth. The path was direct and did not meander at all, as though these people knew the deep jungle like the back of their palms. The trail went on for around 4-5 miles, and the skies were orange with the light of dusk by the time they arrived at a rocky outcrop.

The footsteps led into cavern that descended into the ground.

( What now? )

(Fort: 1d20+7= 20)

"Looks like we're going into that cave." Gorin remarked.

"Lest you want me to look for a different way in."
