So, oddly, I just discovered there is a Chultian spear which is the best simple weapon in the game. I expect it to quickly spread across the Forgotten Realms because it breaks the die standard of all previous weapons.

Since I am actually in Chult, do our guides have one for me to learn to use?

It is called a Yklwa, is a one-handed simple weapon with d8 dmg, and has the thrown property (though very short range). Maybe it is a misprint in DNDBeyond, and it is supposed to be two-handed, or martial?

If I'm correct, it's one of the magic items I listed that were available to buy in Port Nyanzaru. I'm getting ready for the drive back home from visiting in-laws (which will take a large chunk of the day). I can check in the ToA book later to see if there's a mundane version as well.

And yes, it's pretty broken.

Since I'll be traveling soon, here's a rundown of possible places you can go:

--Firefinger, for both the vantage and the fact that you can rescue an aarakocra there that will give you an easy in with the aarakocra at Kir Sabal.

--Kir Sabal, home of the aarakocra in Chult.

--Wherever this oracle is.

--You can bump around toward the south and try to find Omu without any additional info.

--Any of the other places marked on your map.

A quick search for the Yklwa shows mundane ones stats, it’s described as a mostly melee weapon, since it’s weighted too poorly to be thrown very far.

Second that.

We need to go back to our canoes, so I say we just swing around the circumference of the upper right quadrant, cross the lower right quadrant and hit anything interesting, then exit through the lower left quadrant.

Maybe we can ask our new friend about any areas they left unexplored.

Important utility spells:

I took enhance ability, which can give you advantage on ability checks for one stat for an hour. Next time someone will be negotiating for us, we can stack this with guidance and be supernaturally good at it. 2d lvl spell slot, and uses concentration, so limited application, but when it shines it should be awesome.

I also have access to Continual Flame. So, with 24 hr notice and 50 gp of ruby dust, I can make something appear to burn with the brightness of a regular torch... forever. Which I may well do with my shield, and keep it covered most of the time, just cause awesome.

Dropped Lesser Restoration for Spike Growth, a few tough choices in there, but pointy bits of difficult terrain with damage sounds like a good idea.

If it matters, you have your canoes with you. Doesn't make sense thematically, but it's one of those weird AL things.

So, I think I can do this.

It's a new day, technically, so I'll roll for a few hours worth of exploration in Mezro before having the party head toward Firefinger. That way, you can get a day's worth of travel in while still getting the chance at a few weird occurrences in Mezro. Sound good?

Is there room enough to give a wide berth and pass by these drunken apes without incident? Calenor is focused on finding Omu via Firefinger's elevated view. She'd prefer to minimize the...

wait for it...

monkeying around.

While Lucius deplores Alex’s hurtful words, having Glibb hiding might help us avoid a night racing through town following a band of drunken apes led by a shapeshifter Druid... so, good show.
