Well...hell.

When we found Ornup, he went Northeast to get here. We must have come upon him from a westerly direction. I can't find it for sure but I remember Nisos asking Ornup why he was "this far west." Which means the goblins must've been sent by the queen to the East. Assuming the orb was of value to the Queen, my best guess is that they sent a rider with the orb Northeast. Southeast is also a possibility but they would have been slower moving with one walker and one rider.

So I'll do a quick reconnoiter in the immediate area to see if any of the goblins circled back around and look for other clues that might confirm or deny my suspicions.

Ornup was pretty big right? I examine the tracks to see which has the largest set of goblin prints.

One of you tracker types, help me deduce where the big dude went.

Ornup is dead but Fyespon was pretty big :P

Nisos examines the tracks. The wolf tracks going southeast seem to be more heavily impressed in the snow than the others.

Gregor scouts out the nearby area.

Rolled Dex 2+13 vs. Wis*2
Thief reroll: 10+13 vs. Wis*2

Gregor follows the tracks going northeast. As he moves quietly up a hill, peeking over the top, he spots a goblin on a wolf a few hundred yards away, on another hilltop. The goblin is riding at a slow pace from north to south, keeping watch over the surroundings. It does not seem to have noticed Gregor.

Gregor gets back to the group without further incident.

Remus: Well yes, but I don't see how that applies here.

So I guess you are going with Gerald's suggestion?

You go southeast following the pair of tracks, Saucix and Gerald going first and the rest of the party following some distance behind.

Gerald rolled Dex 7+10 vs. Wis*2
Saucix rolled Dex 15+13 vs. Wis*2

Gerald and Saucix rounds a rock and come face to face with the big Fyespon on a wolf and a goblin on foot, a hundred feet away.

"Razbri!" Fyespon says.

I remain hidden, ranging from the party before and behind in the scout role. In this case, I'll be coming up from behind the party but if I hear anything, I'll range around and sneak up on the situation. If I hear the sounds of battle, its a tank and flank kinda day.

"There is no need for a fight - we have already settled our disputes via combat, and I am honor-bound to uphold that truce. We come to you now as friends, travelers, and merchants. If it is a fight you want, then by the Sun I will give it to you, but I assure you that there is no need. We wish only to talk." I place my hand on my new sword shaking with nervous fear, but understanding that like the rising of the sun, my blade must inevitably meet their throats should they threaten my company.

"Hey Fyespoon, what's the deal with all of those orb things?"

"Orbs? Have you found orbs?"

Fyespon gives a toothy smile.

"We search after orbs to our queen. If you merchants have any so are we willing to pay for them."

All of this is said in a rather loud voice.

Silva you really need to learn when to keep your mouth shut.

"Have you any yourself? We found many, but I believe there are more. We want to sell as complete a set as possible of them. We suspect that they are quite valuable."

"We have few. They are hardly valuable for any other than us. How many have you? We pay good."

"Wait, are we talking about the same orbs? Do you have one on you that you could show us? One of my companions is carrying ours, but he is slow, and lagging behind."

He's speaking loudly. This is an ambush.

Adarim
Observe surroundings cautiously. Be ready to counter-ambush at a moment's notice. My finely tuned and keenly controlled sense of paranoia should help me notice goblins sneaking up, and I should be able to remain hidden.
