After seeing to the Dryad, she thanked them and offered instructions to the ruins and rest. The party then set further into the forest.
Come midday they found a caravan under attack by more undead forces. The druid joined the battle rather indiscrimantly, bringing down stones on all combatants. The rest of the party moved in and assited the guard with the remaining skeletal mage.
Once the battle was over, and the druid finished posturing with the guard, they discovered this was one of the caravans headed for Woodsocket. Colin and Jim offered to escort the caravan back. They convinced Sa’ar, the man with the caravan, to join them. He knew more about the Bloodstones, and reenforced the severity of their quest.
They came to the river described by the dryad, and started to make their way upriver. The blight on the forest had begun its spread down river though. They were attacked by vegypigmies, the fungal corrupted humanoids.
Now they must move upriver, deeper into the corruption.
