Luca and Dale wander off into the dense jungle and stumble across a bunch of gibbons who try to kill them. A half-orc, Lothar, tells them to follow him. They stumble across the party still in combat with Ice. A hat falls on the tree and on Ice, and both of them begin changing shape into snake tail. Lothar and Dale get onto the ice. Lothar moves into the trees, Dale sprains his right wrist and Luca slips on the ice. Grimsbone kills a swarm as Gullycloak struggles to get out. The Treant grapples the Hatter with its snake tail. Ice begins to swirl his hands and summons some lightning that strikes Dale. The Hatter throws a hat on the tree, which seems to have glued the tree in place. Lothar tries to get on the ice and breaks his leg. Dale dimension doors behind Harsk, planning to heal him. Gullycloak gets bit by the swarm.
Grimsbone breaks a rib as he tries to get up. The Hatter is crushed by the Snake-Treant and falls unconscious. Dale gets hit with more lightning and Lothar drinks a potion of fly to move closer. Dale heals Harsk so that he becomes conscious. Gullycloak jumps onto Grimsbone’s back. The tree is still stuck in his own goo and animates some trees near Gullycloak. Ice breathes a cone of cold. Harsk throws his thundering battleaxe at Ice, and it sticks in his back. Lothar attempts to charge Ice, and his ax bounces off the barrier. Luca shoots him and Dale fires off a few scorching rays and Ice finally falls, dissipating the ice and the swarms. The Treant sadly attacks Harsk, mourning his only friend, and Harsk goes down. Lothar comes in and delivers the finishing blow to the Treant. The light of dusk falls over them.
The cloud tvs erupt with surprise as they mention Turbo, a former Champion, (Lothar) has turned against Ice. Lothar begins scalping Ice and they loot his corpse.
They head on down to Harkenwold and see a vine bridge and some Neanderthal-like creatures and some tigers on the other side. They ask for things as passage. Hatter throws some hats on the cavemen, and they sprout tentacles and beaks. Some tigers rush the Hatter and the party rushes to his aid. Luca shoots at the tigers and Hatter puts some hats on the tigers. A soapy bubble encases Hatter and Gullycloak. The tentacle guys rush to hit Gullycloak and Grimsbone, but their tentacles can’t grapple. Dale dimension doors and pushes a caveman into the gorge to his watery grave. Lothar throws an axe into the tiger. The tigers just rip Hatter to shreds. Harsk slices a tiger in two and kills the two tentacle cavemen. Luca shoots the dagger out of another caveman’s hand, preventing him from slicing through the rope. Grimsbone grapples the tiger, and Gullycloak heals the Hatter. The Hatter throws a hat on the final caveman, and he becomes incredibly attractive. The Hatter and the caveman start making out, and Dale joins in. Lothar cuts the grappled tiger with his axe and it’s finally dead. Gullycloak angrily yells at Harsk for killing the tiger when he was specifically asked not to.
They ask Lug about what’s ahead. He tells them that they have to wear necklaces, but not everyone takes a necklace. They head on to Harkenwold and hear a siren, House Mancini and Diamond, a female elf, has been released into the jungle as a Champion. They are approached by more cavemen and tigers. They are offered a meal in their honor. Hatter, Dale, and Lug go off to fuck in Lug’s hut. Zalla offers them food and asks for many stories in exchange. The chairs collapse underneath them and the food is tainted. These people seem hellbent on annoying the party. Lothar hears a quip about his sexual prowess and becomes incredibly angry and possessed. In the meantime, some true debauchery is happening in Lug’s hut. Gullycloak attempts to blind Zalla, but it doesn’t seem to be doing anything. Luca and Harsk get covered in trash. Grimsbone smashes Lothar with a club, sending him flying into Zalla’s arms as Lothar confesses his love for Zalla. Zalla screams in sadness and proclaims that the party will die. Her bones shatter as Gullycloak points at her. Harsk kills some cavemen and Luca attempts to run. Some cavemen swarm the party in the various areas. Zalla breathes into Lothar’s face and his eyes open as he is brought back to life.
