Funeral Fire for Fungal Follies
Our heroes rush out of blazing giant ant hill to find an army of ants from a neighboring ziggurat. The ant leader introduces himself as Ban and explains that his scouts saw smoke and he brought his soldiers to investigate. They appreciate the ronin stopping the spread of the fungal infection and ask if they’ll be guests at the funeral pyre. The party obliged and witnessed the ants solemn funerary dances. Our adventurers said farewell to the ants and returned to camp to check in on Pop, Snap, and Crack. They feast on cream corn seasoned with dinosaur meat with blueberry tarts for dessert and recieve parting gifts from Murok and Pramela. Pii’treb sticks around to offer the party a proposition in the morning.
