Several days into the trip, the party hears a war horn several miles ahead. They disregard it until they are attacked during the night by a group of gnolls. One is a particularly tough gnoll, with pure white fur and nature spells at hand. They defeat the aggressors, but the white fur gnoll escapes.
The next day, they are waylaid by the gnolls again. The white fur gnoll announces himself as Kelf, and tells them that they will die or live as slaves. He has several gnolls, wargs, and ogres with him. As an attempt to avoid the encounter, the party splits up into two groups. However, the gnolls and wargs catch up with them, and they are engaged in battle. The party defeats Kelf and his gnolls before the ogres arrive and flee on their horses. They then arrive at Morrow.
