I do not wish to encounter enormous spiders again. Most unpleasant. Bastien-rao jumped in front of me after it bit me, which was exceedingly rash of him. Nate-rao was poisoned attempting to collect its venom after we defeated it, which was MOST unwise. If he was going to attempt such a thing, he might have at least followed proper venom-gathering protocols.
Not much to report other than unpleasant arachnids. We have reached several towns and did a great deal of resupplying, in addition to selling those things we were no longer in need of. I have begun learning Hon-la, in preparation for our next destination.
