The adventurers came across a boneyard of sorts during their travels, encountering bones of boars, deers, bears and even a few humans. Little did they know that the boneyard was the home of a semi-intelligent giant trapdoor spider the size of a pony. After managing to defeat the giant trapdoor spider the adventurers climbed down into its lair and managed to find some useful treasures hidden within. This included a suit of leather armor, a short sword, some gold pieces and a silver stag lord amulet. Also of interest to the adventurers was a scrap of paper tucked into the bandit’s left boot which bore a symbol of a claw-shaped dead tree atop an otherwise barren hill marked with an “X” in blood scrawled by the tree’s roots.
