Having destroyed the silt runners, our group followed the trail further. Eventually our intrepid adventurers came across the wagon, but it was swarming with kruthik! These nasty four legged chitinous beasts attacked, demonstrating their complete inability to size up a fight. Though the biggest of these was pretty nasty, and could attack at range, the smaller ones were easily manageable. Our group eventually learned the importance of our roles in combat, and came away with only minor injuries. 103 XP was gained as a result of this encounter. Silt runner tracks lead away from the site, implying that a large part of the goods were still missing, as well as any of the personnel manning the wagon. Given the sand runner’s penchant for man-flesh, they would be dead meat sooner or later without some assistance.
