7:1d4 Ogres are fighting a group of 1d4 guards and 1d4 zombies. The guards and zombies are wearing similar equipment and have a flag with a dragon with backwards wings biting a broken wolf. They seem to be fighting together to take down the Ogres. If the player(s) help them defeat the Ogres, the band tells them that they are volunteers helping to defend their land and thank the adventurer’s for their help. The band gives the players a Black Apple and 1 Fire Root per guard and zombie rolled. Any zombies or guards that have died can be taken back to the Argent Tower or the Ruins of Algar where the garrison will happily take the bodies and give 1 Fire Root per body brought returned.
8: 2d6 Skeleton Riders (skeletons riding warhorses) spot the party on the road. They carry a banner that has a dragon with backwards wings biting a broken wolf. The Skeleton Riders are friendly and wave the party down for some questions. It appears they are scouting the area, making notes of dangerous monsters and creatures that could attack people. The Riders cannot speak but use signs and writtings to communicate.
