The High Road and Discovery of the Lost Valley of Hutaaka

The High Road To Hutaaka is in disrepair, but the group easily traverses it, with the help of a levitating Vlad and by evading confrontation with two full grown Griffons. The entrance to the Lost Valley of Hutaaka is blocked by a huge gate and two more living statues, but they too recognize the golden needle and thread and allow the group to pass. The eastern part of the valley is eerily ruined and deserted: Many buildings are desecrated and only few items remain. The group is attacked by groups of jackal-headed undead at night, andeventually finds a couple dead Traldar. While they check the dead, a Traldar patrol finds them and after initially tense discussions the group is invited to a Traldar village to talk to the Traldar Elder.
