To see how quickly the adventurers get through the city to the, the characters can take a DC 20 Survival (Wisdom) check. On a:
- success, the journey takes 24 hours, with 1 night’s rest. The first day gets them to the road. The second day gets them to the city in the afternoon.
- failure, the journey takes 48 hours, with 2 nights’ rest. The first day is spent being lost in the wilderness. The second day gets them to the road. The third day gets them to the city in the afternoon.
General environment: Moor–wilderness → Road in the moors → Road through hilly–forest → Road through hilly–forest broken up by pastures (mountains and city in distance)
The Denau Mountain path 2
Steep mountain path that winds up the wooded foothills of the mountains. As the path climbs the mountain, it will climb along the top of an icy ravine, with cliffs down to the right. This path climbs for about 10 miles. Along the top of this ravine, it’s extremely cold (p110 DMG).
About 7 miles up the mountain, there will be strong winds (p110 DMG) and is obscured by heavy snow (p110 DMG, heavy precipitation). Players will think they hear a howling on the wind. Around here, a DC 16 perception check will show that there are animal tracks around. A successful DC 18 Wisdom (Survival) check will identify these as three wolves and two winter wolves which have travelled up the mountain.
After another mile, the players will be set upon by two winter wolves (p340 MM) and three wolves (p341 MM). In the area there will be chunks of slippery ice (p110 DMG), tall cliffs and rocks to hide behind.
After another half mile, the ravine eventually disappears and the characters are now in a path between two mountains, still climbing.
At the top of path following up the ravine, the path splits: to the north, further up the mountain; and to the east, down the mountain. A mostly covered signpost shows that the [[mountain monastery]] is up the mountain, and Aymeluma is down the mountain.
Coming back down the mountain on east side, the players will follow a river that joins from the east of the mountain.
