Alvenor, Hagen, and Jarren set out on a mission. They have been offered 50 gold coins apiece by a monk if they would map out the keep of Winterhaven. As they set out, they are ambushed by a pack of kobolds in the forest. After dispatching the kobolds, they take a kobold prisoner and attempt to extort information from him, but get only false information. They kill him, and continue on.
