Royce ordered the players to begin cutting a path through the forest towards the Goliath mountains. Royce told the players that the path will be used by additional military squads that will be arriving in Knuel shortly. The players encountered a goblin encampment in the forest and eliminated all of the enemies. In a large tent, they found a map detailing a plan of attack against Knuel. The players rushed back to town to inform Royce. At night, goblins attacked Knuel. After the players defeated the goblins, they uncovered the truth about their commanding officer. Royce is actually an Eladrin merchant using the military as a cover for his drug growing operation. The players agreed not to disclose his identity and help him in the quest for profit.
