Having all returned to Fallcrest the The Player Characters, Ricorin Lightouch the Halfblack, Norian Chorster, and Zanril Leofire set out back towards the Lair of Maraleth and his many minions to retrieve Traevus’ stolen box.
While on their way the party was ambushed by a pair of goblins who were hiding out in an abandoned tower and a pair of feral wolves. The ensuing battle was the Action Squads first test of combat. It was a disaster.
Zanril was only steps away from death at the hands of one of the wolves. But the determination and tenacity of his newly found allies [And a little help from the DM] saved his life. After taking out the wolves and one goblin some quick thinking from Ricorin led to him convincing the last goblin that there was a dwarven army on their way from Fallcrest to protect him and his friends.
The party reached the goblin’s lair which, they found, had a secret passage to some sort of dungeon. Once inside they found a troupe of goblins and a guard drake with Malareth’s horse. They did much better in this encounter using well coordinated flanking attacks and the braziers around the room as weapons.
