We have encountered the kami of the forest, and they are quite fascinating. They have tasked us with discovering how certain oni they had imprisoned in the House of Withered Blossoms had escaped, and eliminating those who had. One oni remains in the prison who was tricked into remaining there by the others.
A great number of creatures appear to have taken up residence in the former prison since the oni escaped, among them some araneas who will likely prove a problem sooner or later. For the moment, we retain an uneasy peace.
We also encountered some mohrgs, which were highly unpleasant. I had the embarrassment of being paralyzed by one of them and propped up in a corner like a statue while Sandru-tzu was obliged to look after me. Apologies, Feliu-rhi, I have disappointed. I shall endeavor not to make such errors in the future.
