The party transport themselves to Othalion Castle to pick up the brew supplies for the fellowship hall.
As they return, they find themselves at the outskirts of town next to another adventuring party consisting of a human male and gnome female. They realize this is part of the group that is looking for Thoril and quickly try to leave, but they are stopped by the Half Orc Garrus who can smell Thoril. The human male Soren and the tiny Gnome War Cleric named Pia reveals that they are a bounty hunting group by the name of The Howls Bane and they are looking for Thoril for desecrating the dead. As they are about to arrest him, Thoril escapes and summons zombies to aid him. A battle ensues and is finished off by a tag team attack between two highly skilled monks. The party finds some gold and a spell scroll on Thoril’s corpse.
