Well, after 8 days of travel, we’re finally here. A good thing too; from the sound of things, the halfling and the elf over on the Fortune Hunter were about ready to tear that ship apart. My own journey was somewhat more peaceful, though their did seem to be some animosity between the dwarf and the necromancer (racially motivated, perhaps? I’m not too familiar with Tieflings).
While the Bladmarks secured the landing sight, we split into three parties to look for any sign of what we are hear for. My group found only a pack of frost wolves, but some of the others found a crevice that showed some promise. We found a cave opening in one of the walls, and after clearing out the yetis inside, it was decided that the location was suitable for a staging area.

I met the other members of the expedition today: a varied group to be sure. It can’t be coincidence that twelve races and all twelve nations of Khorvaire represented by the the the thirteen of us who are “official” members of the expedition, rather than support crew, but I can’t see what Lady ir’Ryliss has to gain by such a precise selection (perhaps some eccentricity of Aundairan culture? An ingrained need to be all inclusive? I’ll need to look into this in more detail later).
One member of the team, the Darguun Hobgoblin (Daruush, I believe) finds it odd that Lady ir’Ryliss is joining us in person, but I find it rather comforting; it shows a degree of confidence she has in the success of this venture. I am greatly anticipating our arrival in Frostfell. If nothing else, spending time with representatives of so many races and nations will provide valuable insight into the culture of old Galifar.
