The Mirkwood Campaign continues tonight. The Raven Company, sent by King Bard at the behest of Gandalf the Grey, went south from Dale to the East Bight on the eastern side of Mirkwood to provide requested aid to Ceawin the Generous and his people. After learning that Ceawin sought to call a folk-moot to unite with the Woodmen on the western side of Mirkwood, the company traveled around the southern border of Mirkwood and back up the western side towards Rhosgobel. At the tail end of their journey, just inside the dark eaves of Mirkwood, they rescued Beran the Watchful, an informant of Radagast the Brown’s. He was poisoned by spiders and on the run from mysterious pursuers. Soon they encountered dark-armored woodmen with savage hounds demanding the company turn Beran over to them. The dark woodmen allowed the company to leave, only to ambush them later. The Raven Company won the day and was able to escort Beran north to Rhosgobel. A better part of a year has passed since then. The time of the folk-moot nears and the Raven Company has been tasked with overseeing productive relations as well as protecting the people who live so close to the dangerous forest.
