The mainly human nation of Carpenia is currently negotiating a peace with the Boreal allegiance of Orcs and other large raider groups known as The Stonefanged. The Stonefanged forces decimated the Carpenian legions yet uncharacteristically of bandits left the human lands unplundered. Meanwhile, in the southern reaches of Carpenia the military has withdrawn it’s soldiers. The group finds itself wandering though the pelting rain seeking shelter in a small farming town. Much of the farm land upon their approach has been raided and the some of the town buildings have been scorched and destroyed. There is not a soul about the town and the group gravitates towards the most prominent standing structure, the inn.
