Our heroes have discovered an apiary full of wild honey, quickly used for a wolf meat feast. They must now cross the Long Rocher mountain foothills. A flock of bird suddenly fly as the sound of a distant battle ring in the air.

Calciumo, the great wizard of the Glendorf jarl, is on a trail to reach an ancient and forgotten statue of Mefitica, the Stinking goddess. A convoy and two units of brave Empire’s soldiers are with him, to help and protect.

Prouds Empire’s soldiers are disorganized and succumb to the dwarves onslaught

But the soldiers are brave and climb the hill, only to be pushed back. Is dying from a fall better than by a double handed axe?

Soldiers are like thin trees under the dwarf’s blades

A harsh and deadly melee begin, soldiers ready to die to protect Calciumo

And our heroes? While Calciumo’s expedition is exterminated, they found the dwarf’s camp. A good occasion to replenish their bags with fresh food and sharpen their weapons.
