I’ve let these accounts slip behind schedule, so I’m going to try and outline things briefly before the backlog gets unmanageable.

The party opted to attend to one of the unexplored cavern entrances. On the way in one of Koko’s hirelings fell down a pit, and as the adventurers looked to haul the injured retainer back out they were beset by swarms of large rats and larger, bipedal ratlings. Another of Koko’s hirelings was very nearly taken out by the wave of rodent bodies, but the party weathered the storm on their hefty armour and pulled through with no losses.
Edging further in, they avoided a passage down which they could hear a large number of skittering voices. They found themselves ambushed again by ratlings, this time better armed and armoured, and led by a larger specimen. After their experiences beneath Bone Keep, however, this was a cakewalk, and they hacked their way through the dens. A quick pillage and burning of the remaining supplies, and they were out safely, leaving the large crowd to deal with the flames as the party made their escape.
