And so, the group of adventurers entered the beautiful forest, filled as it was with all its dangers. The foliage quickly became thick. Before long, the place almost seemed more like a jungle than a forest.
Not more than five minutes in, Brinala got the feeling that she was being watched. Then, from up ahead, she began to hear a growling sound. Peering ahead through a patch of particularly thick trees, she saw what looked like a starving wolf circling to the front of the group. Then, not a moment later, it burst into a charge.

Dark Venus Fey B's Turn
Before the wolf could get very far, something else darted out of another patch of trees. It seemed to be a fairy of some sort, with wings and hair that looked like leaves and skin that was green in color. As the creature came near, it giggled evilly and waved its hand toward Gnashrak. A burst of light shot toward the elf, but Gnashrak's magical resistance was enough to stop it.
(Dark Venus Fey B moves 6 hexes
Sun Ray: Failed)
Shaded Wolf C's Turn
The wolf Brinala had seen had begun its charge. It closed the distance between itself and the group of travellers quickly. Moving straight for Gnashrak, who was at the front, it lunged and swiped at him with its claws. The claws struck the elf's unarmored skin and left a deep scratch.
(Shaded Wolf C moved 5 hexes
Claw: 23 Damage
Gnashrak's HP: 53/76)
Thomas reacted to the sight of the wolf dashing up by drawing his sword. Just as the creature finished clawing Gnashrak, the messenger rushed up and struck at it with a moderately strong slash. However, the wolf was quick on its feet, and so it dodged away in time to avoid the blade.
(Thomas moves 1 hex
Medium Attack: Failed)
Dark Venus Fey A's Turn
At that moment, another of the Fey creatures came out of the trees, cackling madly. It was eager to attack something, and it chose End. Thrusting its hand toward the dragon knight, it sent another beam of yellow light at him. This time, the beam struck and put a burn on End's chest.
(Dark Venus Fey moved 6 hexes
Sun Ray: 24 Damage
End's HP: 70/94)
