The party is walking to Zenthill Keep in repsonse to their Lords call for able bodies to put down a rebellion in the area. The group is walking down a deer path next to the main to avoid robbers and such. In the distance they hear a child crying in the trees. As the approach, they see a Large beetle with a small orc child in its claws trying to drag it into a hole. They attack the beast at once.
The monster drops the child and attacks Jeff….Shawn also charges the beast. Merritt goes around the tree probably trying to flank it but another beetle comes out of the hole and attacks him.
The monsters are eventually killed after taking some minor damage. 200xp for each person.
