Arriving at Hornwood, the party finds the city inhabited by cyclopskin. Sneaking in, they see a boy run into a ruined building. Following the boy into a secret door, they enter the sewers. They then found they’d been led into a trap and were surrounded by wererats. Their leader, Batral, demanded they find out who was almost blowing their cover in the city by scrawling rambling messages onto the walls of the city. If the PC’s didn’t help, Batral’s network of wererat spies would not help in the liberation of Geoff.
The party set off to investigate the a possible lair of this creature in a nearby wizard’s tomb. Arriving there, they found it had been turned into a ramshackle fort. Upon entering the fort, they found a 1/2 orc and his mountain lion pets and slew them. They also found an owlbear chained up. They killed it by peppering it with missiles.
