This mission introduces another three players into the game: Djembe, Raz Theleo Wyver, and Reiko. It begins with Laura receiving a letter from Rieko, asking for aid.
Laura had lived in a small village called Oaker in her youth. Oaker is a community made mostly of half-breeds, intelligent monsters and people who are nature oriented. Reiko, an elf druid, was friends with Laura when she lived there. Apparently Oaker had been having a dispute with a local mine and it had led to some creatures being killed. We are introduced to Josephus the ‘head’ of Oaker, a werebear.
Laura arrived at Featherdale (the nearest city to Oaker) and spoke with Baron Wildehurst who offered his help in the matter. The mine in question was under orders of Duke Hancocke who’s athority superceeded Wildehursts. He told her that he would offer any support he could in the matter. While in town she came across Raz caring Djembe in a sack. Raz claimed that he had caught the halfling stealing from him. The two of them agreed to help Laura and Rieko, but only for the gold.
The group went to the mine, killed some warforged which were being made there, and captured the head of the local military. They tied him up and left him at the gate with a note telling them to cease their destruction of the critters land.
