The party has been slowly traversing The Wealdath Forest to find Glihom Balle. After startling a feeding grizzly our young band of adventurers learned that the wilds are more dangerous than they first expected, which was only reinforced that night when a giant constrictor nearly ate the warlock Sveck in his sleep.
A few days of travel behind them, they encountered the hunter Arianna, who for a modest trade of 15 GP and a few pounds of the Constrictor's meat, agreed to lead them through the hidden trails of The Wealdath to Glihom's cabin, shaving a few precious days of the arduous trek.
Nearing Glihom's cabin, the night before they would arrive, they were awoken to screams of women being abducted from another nearby camp of travelers on their way through the forest to Dakkan. After a very one sided battle through the darkened forest, the party was able to fight off many of the abductors. While unable to rescue the women, they were able to capture of the severely wounded men to take back to camp for questioning.
