After a long trek through the Giantshield Mountains the party arrives at Fortress Graystone. The journey was difficult, and the party finds signs that someone is actively trying to impede their progress.
Upon arriving at Fortress Graystone the party spots Gnolls hiding behind statues outside the entrance. The party foils the ambush easily, despite the fact that the Gnolls were assisted by a spirit that could possess statues and attack with them.
After entering the fortress, the party finds themselves in a series of rooms with strange teleportation portals. The portals are part of an ancient Githzerai puzzle designed to challenge those who wish to enter. Also in the puzzle rooms was more Gnolls, guarding their new lair. The party defeated both the guards and the puzzle and moved on.
After exiting the Githerzerai puzzle rooms, the party heard Gnolls arguing down a side passage. The party managed to set up a clever ambush and defeat the Gnolls. The Gnolls were guarding 3 prisoners, which the party rescued. One prisoner was a wealthy land owner. Another was a curate at a church of Pelor. The third prisoner was a retired sage.
