For 2 days the army will travel north east through the Lortmils Mountains. 6 halfling scouts were sent ahead a 1/2 a day ago. So far no word from any of them.

Early evening. Not long after sundown
Littered all over the canyon are dead bodies. Some are more rotten than others. The thick stench of death fills the air. Skeletal parts are everywhere. They are wearing what looks to be clothing with the colors of Ulek. The units carefully move through the graveyard. A few hundred feet away are 6 heads on spikes coming right out of the ground.
