During the Second Watch, as Chi and Ren discuss magic, religion and life, Zahn’s eyes suddenly open from a dead sleep…

…he stands to Chi and Ren’s surprise.

“What is it boss?” questions Ren with a slight smile.

“Don’t follow me,” Zahn replies, then disappears into the night.

Chi and Ren look baffled…

…”I’d better wake Tor-Atimus,” concludes Ren.

Meanwhile Zahn walks into the night for some 100 feet or so until he comes across a large tree.

Being Human, he doesn’t have the ability to see in the dark (Darkvision) more than the partial moon and stars allow…

…which isn’t much.

“Whose there,” he speaks in the direction of the tree.

Suddenly an exceptionally large black panther leaps down from one of its’ great branches.

Glowing yellow eyes it circles him slowly.

Zahn closes his eyes, and sits on the ground Indian style.

“A man of faith,” comes a soothing female voice from in front of him.

With this Zahn opens his eyes, and before him, also sitting Indian style, is a black haired, yellow eyed Wood Elf girl…

…her attire is colored in greens and browns.

“Who are you?” Zahn spoke.

“I am Dreyha… Of the Green Tower…” she spoke.

“Jarothh sent you?” questioned Zahn.

“Yes…” she replied.

“I want to show you something,” she spoke, then turned back into a black panther…

…her yellow eyes gazed back at Zahn, beckoning him to get onto her back…

…and so he did.

She ran back the way his Party had come some 400 yards south of his camp, until they came upon 6 Barbarian Archers at a campfire of their own.

Zahn got off her back and she became a Wood Elf again.

Zahn kneeled behind a bush, “Those are Barbarians from Drudgek.”

She nodded.

She then transformeed back into the panther and took him back to the tree.

“I will be around…” she spoke, then disappeared into the night.

Zahn returned to his camp where Tor-Atimus, Chi and Ren waited for him.

Zahn walked right by them, and stood before Faren’s sleeping form.

Faren woke immediately and rose in a flash, great axe drawn.

“We need to talk,” spoke Zahn.
