- The party stops at an Inn along the river road. The barmaid is wearing a button that says,
"Stop staring at my rack!" The bartender's button reads "Buck Off!" They talk about the festival when
asked about the buttons.
- The prize for winning the Thwack Off is more than the characters can resist. Even divided among the
party members, it's a lot of money. As the locals say, "thwack 'em 'n stack 'em!"
- The characters are on their way to Redwood Valley for the start of the festival. The iridescent antlers
of the Keresh deer who migrate south out of the Blackspire mountains fetch a handful of silver coins.
