Our heroes (Attis, Alewine, Jarnefelt, and Naga) answered a call to shepherd a shipment of flour from the village of Dunross to the town of Dalsetter. During their trip to Dunross, they were ambushed by a small band of orcs, and after defeating them, came across a travel tower. There was evidence of violence – a flour cart whose contents had been ransacked, bloody rodent tracks everywhere, and on the second floor was a pair of bodies dead less than a week, but already stripped to bare bone.
After determining that the tower was safe, the party set about cleaning it and laying the bodies to rest. With the door and shutters secure and a fire lit, they set about tending to their wounds and resting for the evening.
