Rowing their boats Southwards away from the Misty Mountains the company made their way back towards the Tirthon. Making good progress, they camped for the night in a nearby wood. But the next day the river gave way to rapids! Corvus skilfully navigated his boat through the rapids without mishaps, Ailen managed to get her boat through but Ronin and Ulf were not so lucky!
Their boat smashed against rocks and they had to be rescued from the river.
That night, soaked, they came across the old farmhouse they used to rest in on the way to the ruins. Warming themselves by the fire, they took turns to take watch.
The evening was not as peaceful, the Warg Riders caught up with them, and a battle ensued…
