Recovering the mail bag was less challenging than originally thought. As the adventurers wandered the wilderness at night as they attempted to follow the Raven, Markus spotted it where it had been abandoned. Relieved, the already hungry and tired patrol forced their way onward to Gilpledge.
Arriving in the middle of the night Markus arranged for shelter at the Brambleberry lodge. The next day the mail was delivered, but one upset looking white mouse seemed to be left out. It seems she was supposed to get word from her betrothed who had left to try to earn his fortune so they could wed. Moved by Loretta’s plight the patrol agreed to escort her back to Lockehaven and investigate her fiance’s absence.
