After their encounter in the forest, the carriage races to the hidden village of Mercel deep in the forest. Mecel is a way station in the big forest where weary travelers can rest for the night, get a warm meal and share a beverage or two. The Carriage Driver goes to the pub for a meal and some ale and unexpectedly finds mi Lady there as well. Hidden among the crowd are Road Agents, Highwaymen and a group of mercenaries known as The Hessians. A heavy fog blankets the town and wolves are heard all around as the dangers of this journey start to unfold.
