After the battle with the brigands and rage drake rider, the Party ran back to the river to sail further upriver and continue the quest. Torbort was riding the Rage Drake, now named, “Francis.”
Reluctantly, Wilden allowed the Drake on the boat, feeling grateful that he was saved from certain death by Balthazar. Too weak to control the boat, he enlisted the Party to take controls and steer the boat up the river.
Entering the Hills, the Party witnessed a large tree fall across the river, blocking their path. Soon, the Party was being pelted with large boulders and clods of mud thrown by Hill Giants and Cliff Monkeys.
