Party members in the town of Kentor meet up in response to a call for adventurers by Phadoz Wroxbin to find out what happened to his cousin Partek, who was going to be overseeing construction of a new hog farm on some land that Wroxbin recently inherited, and was investigating some ruins on the property with his bodyguard (3rd level fighter) and a band of 12 guards (1st level Warriors). One unconcious and dying guard made it back (he was tied in to his saddle), but did not survive.
Wroxbin initially offers 150gp per person for knowledge of Partek’s fate AND eliminating any threats that will hinder construction and operation of the hog farm, but the PCs talk him up to 429gp.
Wroxbin is leaving town for business affairs in 4 days (he is leaving on the ship that is bringing the construction crew and supplemental livestock and supplies), and expects the job done by then.
The PCs borrow some horses from Wroxbin (the cost of which will be deducted from the PCs fee if they don’t make it back (200gp)), and begin the 18-hour journey. The distance is approximately 50-60 miles through some rough terrain, mostly thick forest where the horses can only walk slowly, but also with occasional clearings where they can gallop at full speed.
The PCs encounter and slay two groups of gobllins, some of which are mounted on worgs.
