Looming over all the hills in the northern Kamelands, a greying hulk of a sycamore tree clung precariously to its last years of life. The 100-foot-tall tree is a well-known landmark and is visible for miles around. As they travelled towards the tree the party encountered signs of battle, the stripped bodies of slain kobolds and mites littering the ground in a series of small pitiful battles.
A quick investigation found a small entrance hidden in the massive roots, which led into a series of small caverns deep beneath the tree. The party cut their way through a lair of mites, finally slaughtering the leader, his giant tick and a colossal centipede in a titanic battle that cost the bard Alejandro his life.
A few days later the party passed a column of smoke rising from the direction of the tree. They rode close enough to see partying kobolds dancing around the flaming tree.
