Oddsdrakken is very pleased to see the party also.
He pauses in leading the donkey to shout his happiness, and others behind him pile up and give curses. With some difficulty, the halfling pulls the donkey out of the line and to the side.
He tells you that he and Valda are camped, along with about a hundred others, just hundreds of paces from the opening of Mimmarudla. Oddsdrakken has been inside the top level of the dungeon, the first part, where you met the wood creatures by the well, but no further. There are workmen everywhere, hauling out everything that is of value. They are plundering the very stones in the walls.
Valda is relatively well. She sustained an injury, which can take a long time to heal. She was unconscious for a time but she woke this morning, with the help of a healer who helped her. She isn't like to move. To feed her, and himself, Oddsdrakken took advantage of the situation and the mule to earn some coppers dragging stone up to the carter's post.
Before they could reach safety, they encountered a patrol of froglings east of the lake. They backtracked from there, and camped by the lake ... but they could see strange boats, with green lights, approaching them from the water and they beat a hasty retreat inland.
Soon after, there began a running battle. They managed to shake all their pursuers save one; Petar's dagger broke; Valda fell from a ledge and broke her ribs. Petar led the frogling away, but he could not shake it all together. When Oddsdrakken found them, they were both dead.
He returned to Valda, made her comfortable. Then a human patrol arrived; they took Valda with them and a man stayed behind to help Oddsdrakken bury Petar and the frogling. When Valda was well, they meant to exhume Petar's body and return him to town, for a proper burial.
Has the halfling left anything out?
