Having tracked down the murderous Shylo to his cabin in the woods, the party spent the majority of the session trading blows with the crazed recluse.  Despite his fierce attacks, the group was able to drop him in a matter of minutes.  He sank to his knees with a sinister grin on his lips, his body fading into a cloud of smoke as the moonlight spilled across his form.

Without hesitation, Hytton kicked in the front door of the cabin, revealing a disused and largely empty living space.  The only items of note were a handful of hand-carved trophies on the mantlepiece.  Closer inspection revealed they were championship trophies from the annual Whitwick Buff Man Competition, all bearing the name Shylo.  The party then rushed into the only remaining room of the house, in which they once again found Shylo sitting in his rocking chair sharpening his axe.

This time, Shylo was playing for keeps.  Following the party's ambush, Shylo quickly transformed into the form of a hulking werewolf.  His attacks were fast and furious, each preceded by his crazed muttering that was made all the odder by his lupine form.  He would whisper "Sharpening an axe" or "Brandishing a Knife" before attacking with those weapons, or "actual cannibal" before sinking his teeth into his target.

The party took a number of grievous wounds, keeping Hytton busy with the healing.  It was ultimately Hytton that needed it the worst, however, as Shylo managed to rip the vertically-impaired cleric's throat out with a timely bite to the neck.  Fortunately, Temmie quickly leapt to the rescue with a healing potion that put Hytton back in the fight.

Ultimately, the party was able to subdue Shylo for a second time.  In a moment of inspiration, Oni took the werewolf from behind with a fatal decapitation that ended Shylo's reign of terror.

Following a quick rest, the party looted what little they could find in the cabin.  Shylo's arquebus, axe, and one of his paws were scavenged, along with four of Shylo's Buff Man trophies.  Upon returning to town, Cedric Shaw congratulated the party on their defeat of "Shylo the Buff" and rewarded the party with 100 gold pieces, quite a haul for such an impoverished town.  Lilly then led the party back to the forest clearing where she found them.
