  • The only way across is a small rope bridge into a forested headland.

  • They enter, dispose of some guarding Wichtel, and set aflame the wooden buildings.
  • A sleeping wood-troll is awakened by their clatter, and chases them.
  • After some dangerous rapelling, they leave in a leaking rowboat.
  • When the fire is spotted, Vlad and Johannes lead the troops to the fortress.
  • They kill many Wichtel, and watch the rest cook in the flames.
