They set off for the Mountain of the Black Wind. They almost lost their guide when Crazy Chucky threatened to cut off his head, only Gavin’s silver tongue convinced him to stay.
As they neared their camp was attacked by cultist tribesmen.
They stayed a week in Ndovu village and healed. They met a missionary there who tended their wounds.
They visited the Corrupt Ground where the Carlyle expedition was massacred, it was spooky.
They left there guide and porter behind and climbed the Black Mountain, following a trail winding up. They found a hidden cave that had a hideous statue of the Bloody Tongue god, a throne, piles of bones and corpses, some sleeping spots and a cage with 50 prisoners, some white. They released the prisoners and found a secret passage behind the statue, one of the prisoners told them the priestess M’Weru and her bodyguards (10 bad ass locals) had gone back there this morning and not yet returned.
Behind the secret door was a ramp leading up into the mountain.
