Previous events: Amara, Quinn and the crossbowman Delos attack a group of broken that are raiding the area. The heroes are defeated. Lestara harshly critiques Amara’s initiative, which ended in favouring Zura. Amara leaves Whitebridge heading for Stoneford. Quinn and Delos come with her. In Stoneford, they are hosted by Kaivan, the son of the healer. The day after their arrival, the river-idol is stolen and the heroes join Kaivan in the hunt for the thieves.
They follow a track through the forest and, at dusk, they reach a small camp occupied by warriors wearing bizarre conical helmets. Amara moves forward and is immediately attacked by the warrior who was on watch on the small hill near the tents.
She defeats the first attacker and the other two sword-armed enemies charge her only to be defeated in their turn. Amara is forced to duck-back by arrows, but Kaivan bravely moves forward and puts one of the archers out of the fight.
Is the last survivor captured? [likely] YES
Do they find the stolen idol in the camp? [50/50] NO
What do they find out about these strange warriors?
The prisoner reveals that they call themselves the Makari. [Oracle: Remove Passage] Stealing the idol was a diversion to easy their attack on Stoneford. Several teams have left tracks in different directions to mislead as many pursuers as possible. By now, the Makari must have secured the village and the river crossing.
