Midday on the third day of travel northwest from Womford toward Red Larch along the Cairn Road, the party’s march was halted by shaking tremors in the land around them. Two hungry ankhegs burst from the ground, attacking the comrades from both sides. After defeating the unwelcome creatures, the party continued on its way, spending the night just off the side of the road.
On the fourth day of travel, a trio of hell hounds attacked the group, wearing iron collars marked with the sign of the fire cultists. The party defeated the hounds, continuing their march north and west toward Red Larch.
