After everyone is settled in to their rooms. Almah gets everyone together in the library. She lays down the plan to strip away the gnolls with waves of attacks over many days rather then a frontal assault. as she talks she keeps looking to Garavel for reassurance that she is saying this correct. the first thing we need to do is determine their strength she picks four of the mercenaries that have the most skill in stealth. the team included: Dashki, Jaali, Merisiel, Asiya, and Paelatus. They are to head to Kelmarane and determine anything they might be able to exploit. at the same time we need to send a scouting party to head south east towards the trade route and then north following the road up to the river then reverse the route back to camp. The gnolls at Kelmarane are known to send units to the trade route to ambush traders. but we shall attack them. the gnolls are known only to send units of 4-6 so we are going take them out and blame the traders for hiring more guards. that way we can take some of their ranks out easily. for this we we will need: Garavel, Sacul, Saed, Dolfa, and Groam (half-orc cleric i havn’t created yet). Garavel will lead the way.
you will head out within the hour. Good luck everyone.
