Encounter 1. Save the Mill
Leaving the keep via the secret tunnel our heroes decide speed rather than stealth is needed and take to the road running towards the besieged Mill.
Thankfully a few of our heroes where eagle eyed enough to see that the Mill was in fact a trap, but decide to press on with the attack and clear the Mill of raiders.
The battle outside the Mill was over quickly with the heroes quickly making short work of the small force of kobolds. The battle in side the keep however was a much harder battle , our heroes were outnumbered 2 to 1, their hardest battle yet that saw both the cleric Harbek and Morris fall during the battle of the Mill.
With 2 members down our remaining heroes dispatched the raiders saving Harbek & Morris.
