The party was given a timetable of five weeks until the arrival of the trade delegation, with it taking four weeks riding to get there. After considering the use of the Amulet of the Planes (not possible), a fruitless negotiation with Hieronymous Polecat, the party set off on horseback. Taking a detour to the goblin-held wreck of a town that is Woodford took an extra three days. The trip was uneventful until the last stretch between Hauteveldt and Neuholm. Three days late meant the party had to hurry after the trade delegation. Coming across the first set of wagons on the road the party subtly killed or captured the entire group. It is morning, three days before the scheduled arrival of the trade delegation.
