Encounter with Warg Riders
Account of Combat
Marching back from the gate-houses to Ket on empty stomachs, the company detected a patrol of twelve Warg-riders split into two groups of half a dozen each; one group on either side of a stream.
The party cleverly set a trap of spilled silver and ambushed the first group; most of the riders, and several of the company being sent to an ensorcelled sleep by Ulric's magic. Pelenwin was incapacitated in the fighting, but the second group of riders watched the party slaughter their fellows and then fled the scene.
All told, three Wargs and five Hobgoblins were slain. Nine Wargs and seven Hobgoblins fled the scene.
In the way of rations, the Hobgoblins had a heel of hard grey bread, a fist sized wheel of gnawed stinky cheese, a dead frog, and a 1ft long snake with its head bitten off.
As to wealth, the Hobgoblin purses contained a total of 18 silver and 37 copper coins. One of the Wargs wore a coin-sized iron token upon a leather collar.
