The party, which consists of a Barbarian, Monk, Druid, and Ranger, reach Oleg’s Trading Post two days after they left Restov. There they meet Oleg Leveton and his wife Svetlana Leveton who mistake the party as reinforcements they’d requested from Restov. Informed that bandits would be arriving at Oleg’s Trading Post around first light for “tax collection”, the party agrees to help the couple with their bandit problem in exchange for some furs and boarding.
Working through the night, the party is able to create a trip wire, spike trap, and repair one of the four broken catapults. When the bandits arrive, the party wastes no time and greets them in battle. When the dirt settles all the bandits are slain, including their leader Happs Bydon. As for the party, all escape with only a few scratches except for the monk, who is bedridden for the day.
