Haldren tells the adventurers about a small scouting party that his men chased back towards an abandoned castle which lies on the other side of Hunter’s Wood. He offered them 30gp a day to join forces with his men and squelch this before it became something his men couldn’t handle. The heroes accepted and Haldren gave them full membership into The Hunter’s Guild as well as outfitted them with horses and goodies (like alchemist’s acid). The party rode through Hunter’s Wood and felt a profound sense of harmony and alertness, as they gazed around they saw the abundance of life in the forest; rabbits, fowl, deer, fruits, and berries. Finally, they arrived at the castle.
