As we continued to follow the trail of evil that led us further into the woods we cam upon a strange clearing. It was strange in that it was by far the largest clearing we had encountered and also inside of it was what appeared to be unconscious or dead women. being the good man that he is Heil walked forward to investigate and as he bent down to check on one of the women seized him by the leg and attacked him and us. we quickly took a formation we are slowly becoming accustomed to but then as we fought the now exposed Dryads women flew from the treeline and attacked us. They were women but had wings and claws like birds. their song was irresistible one would drag us all together while the others assailed us with screams of anger and pain. While we were distracted the dryads were also attacking us. We slowly dispatched one of the dryads and then one of the harpies. thanks to some quick work on my part and Lord Magstine’s we kept the party refreshed and fighting as we mended wounds with divine and musical sources. I almost exhausted myself when I acted quickly and filled my team with a war chant i had learned years ago in a particularly nasty fight with a wizard whom had turned dark and taken over a mansion to the south. This particular chant causes the mind to focus and every one of my allies to move more accurately. As the harpies continued to attack so to did my friends. After several minutes of combat we finally dispatched the last of our foes and withstood the last of the puppet-like attacks from the final foe. after such a long and arduous day we needed to rest before we final found the source of this dark and horrific magic. we set a post and made our camp for the night. I pray that i have seen the height of the horrors we will witness but i know that this will not be the case.
