Story

The Daring Dragoons have made their way out of the spook-zone forest, and back into Horsk, where they find some light fires, and badness, but it's not as bad as it could have been. The militia of the town are currently engaged with a scary army attack. The party immediately gets to work, clearing out the villains, as the army of Horsk unleashes arrows on the foes. Isaac almost immediately goes down, and spends most of the fight trying to get back up.

Eventually, all but one of the creatures are dead. The final one surrenders, and Val questions him. She specifically asks who he is working for, and who sent him. He responds, "The Gedgora don't have to tell you why we attack," adding "You're on our land." He demands a warriors death here and now, warning them that their lands are going to be soon conquered anyway. Bek remembers she's a ranger, and can heal Isaac, so she resurrects him. As soon as he wakes up, he uses his Spiritual Weapon to chop off the dudes friggin' head!

Some Horskian guards approach and thank the heroes for their help. But, they add, that Father Breio, whom I believe we've never heard of before, has risen the dead, and there were attacks from the graveyard. The guard then dies.
