Read Aloud Text

Coming around the corner you see, much to your surprise, the boys you met earlier on the trail who headed off in the opposite direction, battling a mass of swarming centipedes.

Tactics

The centipedes are of minimal intelligence and simply strike out at whichever character last hit them. They fight until dead.

Development

At the arrival of the group the boys take heart and begin to battle back although young Clem has already been paralyzed and Mikkos is injured and has run off. Particularly helpful are Derros, Surragol, and Lovo, while little Huto tends to his brother.

Features of Area

The young boys have been digging a hole near a large tree and stirred up the centipedes but otherwise the terrain is flat and easy to navigate.

Map

Aftermath

Once the centipedes are defeated the boys find themselves in a difficult situation. Eventually Derros admits the truth, that they stole a treasure map from an old hermit living up the road a few hours and traveled here looking for treasure.

The boys are loathe to admit they have been tricked but a quick perusal of the treasure map reveals some obvious flaw. See The Orc’s Horde Treasure Map section for details on this information.
