June 17, 1592 — The party sets out from Griggston, travelling along the Victoria River (Griggston & Environs: 13.10–17.12) in search of a Kerr encampment described by Toh Yah. In the late afternoon, Zuka notices strange tracks in the dirt: clearly human, but moving in a strange manner. Whoever made them came this far along the trail and then turned back east.
In the early evening, the party arrives at the Kerr encampment to find it abandoned. There are clear signs of a struggle and humans, walking in this strange manner, entered and left the encampment several times, dragging bodies away to the east. The party makes camp that night, resolving to follow the trail the next morning.
June 18, 1592– The next morning, the party follows the tracks, which soon departed the trail to enter the forest to the north. Eventually, the tracks enter a natural cave at the base of a rock outcropping. Carefully, the party enters the cave, finding the air thick with a red dust.
Noticing a ledge above, Hanni climbs up to discover three things: first, a pile of red dust on the floor in the rough shape of a man. Second, a decayed chest containing strange coins (81 gold and 110 silver). Third, at the far end of the ledge, a larger cavern in which are several dogs covered in a strange, fungal growth.
Finding the dogs quite aggressive, the party dispatches one of them and chases two more off. They then find two more dogs lying prone under a carpet of moist, red fibers. Deciding that these dogs, now recognized as belonging to the Kerr encampment, cannot be saved, Toh Yah put them down.
