The party received a letter from Culthain informing them to meet him at the Tirthon Tower, the content of the letter is vague but suggests that minions of Angmar are planning an attack.
Traveling South through Rhudaur during the winter, snow covering the ground and forest about them, the tranquillity of their journey is soon broken by the sounds of distant screams.
The band rushes forwards to discover a large group of Orcs and Hillmen scavenging through the contents of a merchant’s wagon, the horse, and merchants lay dead on the floor!
Without delay or hesitation, the company charges into battle against their mortal enemy.
With minor injuries, they dispatch the horde and begin to examine the area to learn where they came from.
Ronin soon discovered the merchants laying dead in the snow and set about burying them. While Tinuveil and Ranger find their tracks had come up from the South, in the direction of the Tower. That is when Ranger discovered the child, a young boy laying in a bush shivering. They learn that his name is Aiden and that his parents were taking supplies to the Tower when they saw smoke rising in the distance and decided to turn back. But they did not make it far before they were attacked. Deciding to take the bot with them the party left for the Tirthon.
