Leaving the place where you found Bobbi and Olga, you make your way to the cave in the forest. Along the way you find an elf named Kaeleer snared in a web-trap. After he is freed, introductions are made, and he decides to travel with you to investigate the spider situation. Inside the cave you find a mass of webs hiding traps, and more spiders. You kill many and set fire to some of the webs. In the back you find the desiccated corpses of victims: animals and humanoid, though none you recognize. The crevice in the center of the cave revealed a mass of webs forming a sort of nest, with more bundles inside. With no sign of the ettercap, Bud lights a torch and sets fire to the nest, and the party leaves for Ruremburg. The spiders seem less menacing on the rest of your journey, though signs of them are prevalent throughout most of the area. After a rest, you come upon the plain outside Ruremburg, it’s bells mournfully tousled by the winds. You speak with a cow and discover one or more days ago a group of orcs were in the city. Theyla takes flight as a bird and scouts the city, spotting two orcs lazily guarding the entrance to a large church. Also spotted are groups of feral-looking dogs scavenging the city for food. Returning to the forest you approach the fallen city and make plans.
