Nearly a week passes before another serious exploration attempt is made, though the resident goblin did manage to make some progress on that front. Most nights involved Sarah sketching the 'world according to Jimjie' as the goblin explained what he had discovered. Most of the news was not encouraging. The jungle was expansive to say the least. Now this was good for staying hidden, but it also meant that everything else was more easily hidden as well. The lake/lagoon was large, too large for Jimjie to walk to the far side in a half day. There was a slender log he was able to use to cross the river, and through his probings he found that the lagoon was more or less shaped like a waxing moon. A fair number of creatures lived on the far side of the lagoon, not much on this side. Jimjie also discovered the cliff encircling the bay where they had seen the summoning ritual not so long ago, along with fresh sign that people had been in the area recently... small people.
Sarah put the time to good use, fashioning a crude but serviceable bow for herself, and a handful of arrows tipped with flakes of obsidian. With Anna and Flick assisting they also managed to increase the defensibility of the campsite, throwing up a small wooden palisade.
