He seemed to be studying the Fist and the Gnolls, but never came to either group's direct aid.

But in all, her efforts seemed to be the patient actions of a woman... waiting. Waiting through those darkest hours before dawn, waiting through that last blizzard of the winter... Waiting, watching, for the hour they would take the woods back from the Bhaalists, and bring life back to the woodlands.

Upon the crack of dawn as the darkness of Shar began to subside and make way for Lathander's morning grace, new events and sightings would slowly begin to unveil themselves upon the Cloakwood forest. An un-natural looming mist would begin to befall upon the woodlands within the mornings bloom and an aura of something sinister follows suit as the magical mist thickens and shrouds the deeper parts of the forest. After some time the moans and grumbles of the dead echo in the misty Cloakwood center as sightings of what would be perceived as a small sized patrol of undead horsemen would take up a trot of a lead ahead of a moderately sized herd of undead soldiers. Banners of the Lord of Bones would be held high by standard holders organized at the front and the back of the moving group of the dead as they continue from the forest center and were said to have disappeared into the Lion's Way after their march. The un-natural mist disappearing along with them.

The other watcher, more alert to the danger from previous encounters, dodges all contact wisely, skirting the more dangerous central Cloakwood, but learning nothing of movement save a rumour of Undead horsemen. Deadly Gnoll weaponry, corrupted woodland creatures, and an underlying Bhaal like curse to the forest calls for Druid consultation, stout arms may no longer be enough, relics, wisdom of the ages, or some refined magic may be the answer.
Waiting, watching, for the hour they would take the woods back from the Bhaalists, and bring life back to the woodlands a Druid of Eldath muses. But the time for waiting and watching has passed. An enchanted wold pauses before the Druid an unheard message passes. Nothing defined a sense of urgency of consultation, a gathering of magic, a sense of hope, of Druid held wisdom and relic, and yet there she stands uncertain, the wolf gone.
A consenus then that scouting may prove dangerous despite woodland skills, and the Gnolls may soon be on the move again. (next round of activity will generste events, small and medium sized)
((OOC: Anyone or any group may post here with their own direction or send me a pm if planning an active move in the great game. otherwise it will move on as NPC play dictates and result in some mechanical changes.))
Need these in by Friday 17 September when plot will enter round 1 (this being a measure of time and IC group and npc energy to take an action or direction)

At the first light of dawn a figure in pitch black armor seems to teleport near the Friendly Arm Inn.
After observing the changes that have occurred since the last time he was there, he begins to walk towards Cloakwood Forest.
Hidden by invisibility, he enters the forest moving quickly, despite being in armor, looking for the gnolls.
After a few hours the same figure can be seen returning, no blood stain on his armor, his shining blade firmly in his right hand while in the other a fiery red glow is clearly visible (brimstone).
