Day 24.  The group encounters a giant poisonous snake and defeats it.  Melech makes Himo a set of snakeskin boots since they are in the marshlands.  As they continue their journey, it begins to rain.  They decide to setup camp and these 5 foot tall birds that eventually make their way into camp.  In the end, the group discovers that they make great fried chicken.  Due to the heavy rain, they decided to stay at this camp for the remainder of the day.

Day 25.  The group continues down the river during the day and sleeps in the canoes during the night.

Day 26.  At several portions on the river, the water is too shallow to float the canoes.  This means that the party must carry the canoes thru the jungle.  During one such time, our party encounters a race of lobstermen.  The guides River Mist and Flask of Wine are pretty certain that the lobstermen are the Aldani.  Using one of the dead elbis, the group manages to bypass the Aldani without a fight.

After getting back onto the river, our foolish adventurers are attacked by a giant crocodile.  The group manages to kill the croc, but he has bitten Undril Silvertusk.  As the dying croc slides into the water, he drags Undril into the water.   They manage to save the cleric and setup camp for the day.  However in the jungles of Chult, there is no rest as the party must deal with a group of skeletons.  This time the fight is not without reward.  The party finds a mysterious wand on one of the skeletons.  Will this wand help or hurt the party?  Only time will tell, but it’s certainly going to be funny.
