After a quick discussion we decided to swap the gnolls goods about and have them begin fighting amongest themselves. Unfortunately the bard alerted them to our presence. In quick thinking the mage enlarged the half-orc barbarian who walked out and roared at the gnolls. Properly intimidated the party demanded the girl. Half the gnolls unhappy with this began revolting. Only the chief and his two guards were saved.
The bard was already halfway down the road with the girl, we met up with him after finishing with the gnolls. We spoke to her about how she came to be missing.
