Goblin Camp north of the Wayfarer Inn and the Troll Cave just west of the
camp involve some tough battles, but the rewards are great. The small
battle with goblins at the outpost is handy for a party with low experience

the goblins to use in subsequent battles.
Lane's Clearing at the foothills of the mountains in a futile attempt to
save Farmer Toth's wounded companion, but refrain from initiating any dialogue
or looting. Leave the scene and return. A few of the slain
