The walk to the wells, wasn’t mundane, Jem performed amazing feats of acrobatics as she, Urnhold & Olorin traveled south. Jem captured the attention of many townsfolk, rewarding her with Ooh’s and Aah’s. Upon arriving at the divine well, Olorin’s attention is immediately captured by an elderly woman sitting at the foot of a well covered in moss. She looks to him and says “You, young one, are in the right place.” She explained to Olorin that the Great Mother, Chauntea, has a mission for the druid. Olorin is petitioned to “eliminate the hatred upon the howling winds”. Upon an affirmative response, the elderly woman touches Olorin’s forehead and endows the druid with the knowledge of the Beast Bond spell, to call animals to his aid, in his future journey. The old woman returns to her spot and begins to nap. Olorin finds an apple blossom, in a near by tree, and puts it in his pouch. While the druid is having a religious experience, Jem searches the area for theive’s cants, but finds little more than directions to food. Urnhold quietly prays to Vulkar, asking for continued protection. A quiet hush falls over the area, except for the sounds of waves crashing on the shore, and Urnhold hears a disembodied, but familiar voice “Beware the blackened earth!” Urnhold’s attention immediately snaps to a large figure lumbering towards them. A two-headed giant covered in dried mud and a swift, bald monk at its side advance toward the divine wells. The Ettin swings it's great clubs and crushed the first well it comes upon. Battle between the party and these aggressors begins, a priest in mud covered robes casts Slow which catches Olorin from a distance away. The only distinguishing mark on these creatures is a black triangle symbol. Numerous blows are exchanged, Olorin collapsed, unconscious, at the feet of a the Ettin. Urnhold and Jem are making every attempt to resist these goons covered in dried, caked mud. The monk was slain, however the Ettin & the priest remaining a threat and have an obvious interest in destroying an important religious site. Only 4 divine wells have been desecrated.
