Oz's soldiers are little put off by the presence of the Wind Storm
Demon, even if they can't exactly see him, but it certainly has proved
a powerful enemy.

The landscape around the Tree and up to the dam is a mess. Vesper
spots at least a half a dozen dead Kydians, as well as several high
end Splugorth weapons. While some of the druids and other Tree
defenders are gathering bodies and items up, it's a pretty monumental
job and they have not got to this area.

Where snow-covered ground was just a few hours ago is a washed out
mudflat already beginning to freeze over in the cold temperatures. As
Vesper and his odd company of demon and soldiers make their way to the
last known position of the scouts, it's hard to tell anything from
landmarks which have either been washed away or denuded of snow.

As they get closer to the dam, they can see, here and there, the odd
arm or leg sticking out of the mud, but this could be a very hard
