After hearing several rumors about the Caves of Chaos in the Keep, our intrepid band of adventurers set out to find said Caves posthate. Harkin was able to navigate the party through the intervening wilderness with little trouble, arriving at the blighted valley of the Caves of Chaos.
The party decided to enter one of the lower caves on the South side of the valley first and stumbled upon a napping Ogre! Taking quick advantage of the situation, the party set upon the snoozing monstrosity to good effect, but not quite quickly enough! The Ogre rose and smote (is that a word?) Eron mightily about the head region with his giant club, felling him in one blow! Luckily the rest of the party was able to put the Ogre down before he could swing again.
After defeating the Ogre the party found a secret door in the back of the cavern that lead further into the Caves. Apparently they had stumbled upon a squalid Goblin lair and a running battle ensued in which the party worked reasonably well together and was able to take the ears of 24 of the little beasties, including their over-sized Chieftain.
Afterward the party headed back to the keep where they met a few more interesting inhabitants.
