On their way to Breakwater, The Adventurers came across an overturned carriage attached to a dead horse, heading south. Following the tracks into the woods, they came across a couple of goblins, eating the unfortunate owners of the carriage, with three pairs of torn and bloody clothes. The clothes suggested that they belonged to a man, a woman, and a small male child.
After defeating the goblins, the adventurers found amongst the spoils, a small token that is passed between sailors to offer a free trip to whomever holds it. Being a sailor himself, Hobart took the token. The adventurers continued, and found themselves on the edge of Breakwater.
