CCA: Travel through the woods and come to the King’s Road which connects Fallcrest to the Harkenwood. They spot a fire in the distance, and go to check it out. They come to a farm, where an outhouse is burning and an Iron Circle patrol is setting to burn out the farm house’s residents. They defeat the Circle, Rescue Ilyana, a half-elv and her boys Jarl and Jerek. After discussion with Ilyana they head towards the Druid’s grove, hoping to meet Reithann the druid, and if not continue on to Albridge to find Dar Gremath. They do find the druid, Reithann, and her two apprentices, Lorel and Theren, and after talking with her they think it best to go to Tor’s Hold and deal with Bullywogs there in order to get men to help fight. The men of Tor’s Hold are too busy defending against the bullywogs to mount a resistance or join the other villages of the Harkenwood. They skirt Albridge and take the river trail to Tor’s Hold. There they meet Bran Torsson, who quickly explains the situation and points them towards the tavern, where the local Iron Circle ruffians congregate. They attack the Circle and defeat them. They rest up for the night, planning to assault the Toadswallow cave, where the bullywogs lair.
CCB: Assaulted the Bloodreaver Slavers in Torog’s old torture den, the Chamber of Eyes. After a difficult skirmish in the main slave holding chamber, they were finally victorious over the Hobgoblin Chieftan Krand and his goblin, bugbear, hobgoblin, and human slavers as well as duergar allies. They found a contract between Krand and a Duergar, Murkelmor Grimmerzhul, for the payment of 1000gp for the Harkenwood slaves. The contract had been fulfilled, as the slaves had already been sold and taken away. Beta squad went back to the Seven-Pillared Hall for rest and planning.
