The team continued upriver on the barge with Kalanos until the made it to Misha’s ferry.  They debarked and called out for Misha with no response.  Kalanos told them she often goes hunting with her bear and they should make themselves at home.  The group settled into the cabin for a few hours when a massive bear arrived and tried to get in!  JoJo opened the door and the bear tried to maul him!  The team tried to engage and hit the bear with a few grazing blows.  Cassia rushed up and was able to calm it, and it sauntered back off into the woods.  The team decided not to follow and went back to bed.

The next morning, the group decided to track the bear.  Not having a tracker, they relied on Riccon’s wilderness skills to follow it.  After a while, they realized it was heading in a different direction from Sukiskyn, so they pressed on toward the homestead instead.  By evening, they could see flames rising up over the trees and hear the sounds of combat! 

Suddenly, eight goblins wearing wolf pelts jumped up from the woods and ambushed them!  The goblins hurled spears with wild abandon, wounding the party some but mostly hitting nothing.  They then rushed in with axes and flailed about.  The team was able to take down a number of the marauders quickly, but not before one cut down Nicholas in the fray!  He slumped dead to the ground.  The party pressed the goblins back, and after six lay dead on the ground, two fled back into the darkness.  Cassia said a quick prayer of Nicholas’ corpse.  As she walked away, JoJo, Sensei, and Garadal snatched up a lot of his valuables.  The team then turned toward the bridge they could see illuminated by the light of a burning barn down the road.
