The characters are sent on a first test mission. They have to deliver a mysterious package on a prime world. They are told to look for a halfling called Milo Keleatt in a place called Monting. They are sent to a large city called Chesterbury using a teleportation circle. They are greeted there by Eliza, a female wizard, who points them towards a horse and carriage service run by elves.
On the eastern side of Chesterbury they meet up with Elias Hawles. They manage to intimidate him into arranging transportation right away for 20 gold coins. Soon they are on their way towards Monting.
The road to Monting leads through the normally quiet Wyre Forest. Along the way they are ambushed by bandits. The seven bandits put up quite a fight but in the end, most of them lay dead on the forest floor and the remaining bandits scattered into the forest. The coachman elf was killed in battle, but the adventurers managed to get the carriage moving again towards Monting.
