The raiders weren’t hard to follow… they trampled the grass in a wide swath, and left garbage in their wake.
Around mid-day, they spotted a large fire off the trail… and upon investigating, discovered some raiders had split off to wreak havok on a family of farmers. The human raiders were quick to attack the heroes, but the Kobolds immediately retreated in the direction of the trail. The only survivor of the attack was the farmer’s wife and her son, who thanked the heroes and fled to greenest.
Back on the trail, the adventurers met and destroyed the rear guard in a rocky canyon. They stole the cultist’s regalia and continued on to discover the massive camp hidden inside the crevice of a horseshoe-shaped plateau.
