Walking across the rickety old bridge, still searching for our comrades.


Final fight in the goblinoid cave and we have found Sildar. He took a bit of a beating from the goblins but Jade Dragon managed to save him using the Spare the Dying spell.

Wolf cave, it only we had a Ranger to talk to them. Oh well..!
