Narvi had a dream that seemed prophetic. Something nasty was spreading in a village near Winterhaven. They find out from Bink that the village of Foggy Bottom requested help and small troop of guards went there with some food stores and never returned.
As our heroes approach the town, they hear female voices calling for help from opposite directions. They get attacked by what they describe as tick people who suck blood and kill one only to discover another who has drained Podias’ mule, Henrietta. They kill her also.
