After witnessing the mighty battle between two dragons, the locals made known to us that they were unable to transport their goods across the desert without protection from said dragons. Being kindhearted and light-pursed adventurers, we agreed to escort them across the desert in two round-trips, thus providing them with the means to sell their goods and us with some needed cash. The first day of the trip was uneventful, as we encountered only some strange simian beings, who jump and chirp frivolously and without rhyme or reason. They seem to have taken a liking to the Silent One, who accompanied us with her sisters in the hopes that we might invest in them and start a franchise selling various useful goods to locals in the large city. The kobolds of the sewer also joined us, providing some needed "man"power and a potential meat shield should be require one.
