The sun is climbing up the sky on this beautiful morning in Albridge. The towns folk already walk on Village Green, avoiding these kid’s that runs around the place. Rangrim and the 2 cargo drivers inspect his new caravans that needs to be brought to Fallcrest. Its fully loaded with leathers and iron bar that are currently missing in the city. Satisfifed with the cargo, he walk to Mallard Inn right in front of the towns square where he meets and old man called Onneth. While asking questions about the road ahead, Rangrim taste the cheap buck of beer that Onneth prepared him. Onneth aslo recommended to Rangrim that he might find a helper by talking with Kathrid, the town’s smithy. Without further hesitation, letting his buck nearly full, he left to meet Kathrid’s which propose to lend her squire-like helper called Bertio. Finalizing the details, they left the caravans at Gremath stables and finally bought a bottle of Rum.
On the next morning, they all met at the stable, ready to leave for the three days load road ahead. They finally left saying goodbye to Dar, the stable master, which really wish them good luck. The morning went smoothly, without any particular incident. At the very beginning of Harken Forest, Rangrim noticed a bunch of comestible mushrooms near the King’s road. He stopped by to fill a good ration of fresh mushrooms. While filling his pocket, he heard sounds of a moving creature nearby, behind a fallen tree that was obstructing the sight. Slowly walking away, he got surprised by a Giant wolf spider that jumped on the fallen tree. The spider then attacked Bertio completely stunned by the menacing monster. God blessing or not, the creature totally missed him and got devastated by a war hammer overhead blow from Rangrim.
The remaining distance from here to Fallcrest went without incident. Fallcrest’s silhouette is getting sharper on every miles the party goes further. We can almost hear the sound of the waterfall.
