Captain Mikel Irathen of the 1st Division of the Karameikos Army commanded 100 men and 25 of the Guard of Threshold including the Band of the Wolf to attack the Goblin Camp of the Dread Horde.

Kenalas Silverstreak discovers that the Goblins have moved camp after they found the Goblins killed by the Band of the Wolf. They have moved in front of a mine near the Old Caves. This mine have another entrance that the Goblins can use to escape. Colvis Nilenavi knew of another another entrance with an elevator in the top of the mountain.

The Band of the Wolf were lowered using the elevator to the mine with orders to take control of the mine and block the exit while the soldiers destroy the goblin army. In the water, two snake like aberrations were found and later, traps left by the goblins and a Gray Ooze. They had to open two locks in a big gate and found Goblins, Worgs and Hobgoblins. The Hobgoblins were guarding a chest with:
A Yellow-Like Potion
A Green Crystal Ring
Zelligar’s Key of the Caverns of Quasqueton
A small box with a closed Walnut that had something inside.
A map of the Area with a letter written in goblin with instructions from Kosivikh to one of his Goblin Leader.

The Goblin Letter:
_Kagb, here are your instructions, don’t mess this up or I will eat your puny entrains and bath on your stinking blood.

Keep the Hordes separated until I arrive. Do not get any special attention from the umans. Your sergents should not know the location of the other groups. Trick and Hide. Steal and Run.

Search for my fortress. Use the treasures in the chest to find the Kastle. They are from the former owners who my father killed 1200 moons ago.

I want that Kastle. From it I will rule all the area and other goblins will joing me.
Beware of the Ear, he wants something that is inside. He wants my precious Kastle. He has an agent in the city.

Comments

Raizak Derek gives his superiors a piece of the letter found on the chest on the cave of the Goblin’s Camp. He mentions nothing of the rest of the letter or the other objects found on the same chest.

Captain Mikel Irathen, Ranger Kenalas Silverstreak and Lady Aleena Halaran study the fragment of the letter discovered on the Goblin’s Camp by the Band of the Wolf on their way back to Threshold.

“Kagb, here are your instructions, don’t mess this up or I will eat your puny entrains and bath on your stinking blood.
Keep the Hordes separated until I arrive. Do not get any special attention from the umans. Your sergents should not know the location of the other groups. Trick and Hide. Steal and Run.”

Kenalas Silverstreak: 43 Goblins, 7 worgs and 10 Hobgoblins were killed or capture during the raid. The bigger goblin group that we have found so fat. If the information we have about the Dread Horde is correct each Horde is composed of:
1 Goblin Leader, 10 Goblin Sergeants, 15 Goblins who are Worgs riders,
60 Goblins archers, 20 Hobgoblins heavy infantrymen.
And Kosivikh has 10 of these Hordes.

Aleena Halaran: If he has only two Hordes on Threshold right now, imagine what will happen when other 8 Hordes arrive. By Valerias!

Mikel Irathen: I will send a messenger to Specularum and inform of this. The troops and I will stay in Threshold for a while. We will inform Baron Halaran of our findings

Raizak Derek is dismissed, and as he leaves Captain Mikel Irathen speaks to the others thinking Raizak can’t hear: What about your mission, Kenalas?

Kenalas Silverstreak: The troops in Threshold will make it a little more difficult to complete my mission. But the safety of the people is first.

Aleena Halaran: Curse Bargle!
