The group discovers High Sentry Lodge, traditional headquarters of a group of rangers and wardens. The Lodge has been overrun by Rohkar’s Raiders, a band of brigands. After a protracted battle the party overwhelms the Raiders and captures the Lodge, free Lady Argentea. A single Raider ambushes Obriel and delivers a nearly fatal blow before escaping to the Woods. After spending a night in the Lodge, the party returns to Heldren with Lady Argentea.
On their journey out of the forest, the group meets Masq, a mercenary hired by the town to locate the party that entered the Woods days and days ago.
