You returned from the house of cooking to find the caravan in disarray. Two carts were out of commission as one of them had a broken rear axle and wheels and the other had a dead horse. Part of the caravan was sent ahead to find a cart wright and a new horse. You were among those sent out.
As you were travelling north to the next town, some of the other caravan members take off to an unknown track. You follow them, to be greeted by a fierce storm. You are forced to take cover in the small town of “Bearden’s Hollow”.
