Sardi has continued to report back on Pegasus and Ox is definitely doing better. Guido has figured out we were helping Ox so we’re no longer hiding it. In addition, Sardi has been talking to Brock who is beginning to agree that maybe Guido isn’t right for the academy. They’re supposed to discuss options with the king in Milinar or something. Adults always make things more complicated than they need to be. Still … there are times when I wonder if we couldn’t have helped shape Guido into someone we could consider an ally. But deep down I know that you just can’t forge some metals and some people are just born bad.
We had our final exam. Unfortunately Quack was sick so he wasn’t able to help. We lured the owlbear out of the cave with chickens and then let it chase Yari for a ways (we put down some caltrops to slow it down) until it fell into a pit. Between an oil and fire trap in the pit and all of us using ranged attacks while we stayed safely in trees. We killed the the owlbear, something no other cave had done. We failed. Technically we succeeded but we didn’t save the innocent victims the owlbear had in the cave so in my mind we failed. I’ve been going over what we did and there were a couple of options. We could have fed the owlbear a cow or even a handful of chickens so it wasn’t as hungry. Or maybe we didn’t even need the pit, since we could just go up into the trees anyway.
