Salis and Bors were traveling south on the road along the River Kald, when they heard what they thought were the voices of a couple of men approaching them from the South. They proceeded with caution to the side of the road and continued their way, only slightly surprised when where they thought the voices were coming from, there was no one to be found. Further down the road, they found an old man claiming to just have been robbed.
With a quick description of what was taken, the two left their tools and supplies with the old man, and moved North, suspecting the voices they heard were those of the robbers. Bors moved stealthily into the woods, while Salis stayed on the road. A bit up the road, they found a footprint in the mud heading up a small creek that crosses the road.
Believing the bandits walked in the river to hide their tracks, they made their way up the river, looking for the brigands. About a mile in, they spotted a young man in armor leaning against a tree, as well as a slightly worn path from the river into some shrubs.
Sneaking up on the lad, they capture him after a brief struggle and interrogate him to find information on the bandits. Realizing that all their gear was back with the old man, they decide to knock him unconscious. Seeing the massive Bors raise his war flail above his head, the boy rolls out of the way. Salis attempts to grapple him are unsuccessful and the boy manages to escape them and run for safety.
From there, the two sneak into the cave with the bandits. After sneaking around a bit, they are finally heard by the baddies and attacked. A nasty fight ensues, where Bors is almost felled. Finally, after dispatching the henchmen, they explore the cave to find their leader. With a quick move, Bors is able to drop their leader with one blow from his mighty weapon.
Deciding that this cave would make for a good hide out for themselves, the two find the old mans belongings, rifle though them a bit, realize he is either at worst a powerful mage, or at best is in communication with one, they quickly decide to return the mans belongings and set him on their way.
Once they get to the old man, he thanks them profusely. Seeing the injuries acquired from battle, he hands an elixir to Bors and instructs him to drink it completely, and then rewards each of them 10d for their troubles.
