So far they had been lucky enough not to encounter much in the way of monsters. Every once in a while they'd catch a glimpse of one far off but it would head the opposite way. Having a other group of people was a nice deterrent to small groups of monsters.
They had been traveling fairly easy due to the lower amount of snow. At times they would skirt a snow drift to avoid unnecessary trouble.

I'm not sure what direction they moved in there seems to be more ice around here keeping their prints from being clear." Gil was utilizing his scouting abilities to guess what was around them. A group of four or five monsters may have the courage to attack them.
