The party ventures into the swamps seeking the Book of Names in a long abandoned temple. They withdraw quietly from the King’s funeral trail, struggle through the swamp to find that their contact – a wizened Ent named Green – is missing. They rescue him from lizardmen and he directs them to the temple.
Nearly spent, stinking and stinging, they arrive at the temple. While exploring the ruins they are attacked by a young black dragon. The dragon makes short work of the party, crunching delightedly into their delicious bones.
