The Pathfinders have been tasked by Osprey to travel from the Grand Lodge in Absalom to the settlement of Railford in Taldor and convince a man named Becher Railford to use part of the Railford Distillery as a Pathfinder lodge. Becher’s father, Iodun, was a Pathfinder before he passed away. The group consisted of Cristabelle (human witch), Wayo (elven alchemist), Tumbler (elven rogue), Markas (human fighter), and Sliska (human inquisitor). Osprey told them that the mission was going to be a cakewalk.
Whilst prepping for departure, Cristabelle was met by her shadowy Osirion contact. The message he delivered from Amenopheus said that a fellow Pathfinder named Abta Nuatha, himself an associate of Iodun Railford, has disappeared about ten years ago. If found, Pathfinder Railford should be brought to the pharoah immediately; however, if he is dead, he should receive a proper burial.
The Pathfinders travel towards Railford. The rain is falling hard, making the land around them a soupy mess. On the way to the distillery, the group is set upon by two soldiers, two dogs, and a wolf, who were patrolling the area. Tumbler completely massacres one dog with his rapier, cripples the second one, and kills the wolf for good measure. Cristabelle puts a thug to sleep and Wayo runs him through with her spear whilst Markas knocks out the last soldier.
