After the meeting in the crypt, Jules had her marching orders. It was time to dig more into the rumors. So when noone was looking Jules got her scouts together and vowed that she will get to the bottom of this. She moved swiftly through the forest blending in with the surroundings. Her scouts are the best of the best - they are in tune with the nature can hide in plain sight. The troop is on the way to the edge of forest where they touch the mountain range that seems to be the source of all the darkness... As they were getting closer to the edge they noticed that the tree canopies have been covered with a light coat of dust - it almost looked like ash after a forest fire, except there was no evidence of any fire.
