The group spent 12 gold to buy a rowboat from the war refugees arriving in town, profiting from a struggling and scared family. The trip upriver was uneventful, the group put in just past town.

The sky over the town was pierced by irregular clashes of battle, hacking of wood, and a few plumes of black smoke.

The group snuck up on the edge of town, spotting 5 orcs and 2 goblins trying to enter a barricaded home. Theodore was knocked unconscious during the fight, but the group otherwise emerged without too much damage. The group escorted the stragglers back to their boat and sent them on their way.

They made their way up to the first guard tower without being spotted, using the scroll of create bonfire to set it ablaze. As they made their way towards the second tower, Vhox himself stepped out of the warehouse with a human head in his hand. He tossed it towards the group and readied himself for the fight.

A short two rounds of combat later and Grumble’s ferocious claws tore Vhox apart, adding to the effect were notably also Pan’s Guiding Bolt and Theodore’s brain-sucking Enlightening Worm.

As the worm sucked Vhox’s Brain, the group paused to regroup.
