    He gives you 5 healing kits for the village healer and sends you on your way. You arrive at the village without incident about dark. There are signs of a recent attack and while the people are wary of you, your coming with the ranger (name of Sergey) seems to calm them.

    Don't worry, I've come to help. Where are your wounded?

    When you ask about the wounded, an older human woman who you presume to be the village healer approaches you. "Give me the supplies and follow."

    It is a she, but her gaunt form and light grey wisp of a mustache could fool anybody if she weren't in an offensive yellow dress. The seriously injured are kept in a small, clean room where there are three of them. One has a head injury, another a wrapped torso with a foot long line of soaked through blood on it. The third has a seriously injured arm in a sling, and it looks like he might lose it. When you ask about the other wounded she tells you that they are mostly flesh woulds that can be tended at their homes, but still need to be treated. They are who most of the supplies are for. The seriously hurt obviously need more than a poltice and time.

    Use spontaneous casting to cure light wounds on the arm and torso guys, and moderate wounds on the head injury.

    The head injury guy gives a groan and asks where he is. When the healer tells him he asks about the battle and after a couple minutes says he wants to go home. She insists that he stay one more night, just to make sure he is okay, which he grudgingly accepts. The other two you don't make as much progress with. They both get a little color back to their pale faces and the wounds close a little, but they won't be going home tonight.

    They improve a little more, but are still down. The village healer sees your action and comes up to you.
    It is no good. They have been hit with a necrotic blade somewhere in the battle. I have been able to stabilize them and you have helped a little. I saw this once before, in a sick madman who would cut his victims and let the wound itself finish them like a disease. The only one who survived was a visiting illiterate dwarf who could drink half a tavern under the table when they were teamed against him.

    The dwarf made a fortitude save which was why he lived and boosting these men's fortitude could save them.

    Does anyone have a potion of bear's endurance, or anything that could help them increase their fortitude save? If not I can prepare that spell, but it will take several hours.

    We have tried those, but they are not quite enough. There are some mushrooms that have been known to boost resilience to diseases and curses and magnify the effects of endurance potions. We may have some near here. One of the farms close to the village had a problem with rats coming out of the cave they used as their cellar and while they put all kinds of poisons out they were never able to kill a single one. Eventually they abandoned it and covered it with giant rocks. There might be some of the mushrooms in the cave.

    Sounds good to me. Does anyone else need a cure spell? If not, and if I can have a guide to the caves, I'll leave at once.

    Also, I've updated our other game.

    These men are our highest priority but should keep for awhile with what you have done. The way this thing works it could take days to kill them. They will have more time, followed by a very rapid decline. Sergey will guide you. You can find him at what passes for our inn.
    You find him at the inn. He is willing to guide you, but it is late and he is tired and will guide you there and even assist in the cave, but only after he has rested.

    Ask if anyone else knows where the cave is, and if they would guide me there. Surely some local at the inn will help.

    One of the owners of the farm, Alex, is in the inn and will take you there, but will not assist you past getting you to the abandoned cellar.

    Agree that that is probably best, but it is urgent that we leave quickly.

    Alex sets his beer mug down and says, "Follow me if you are ready then." and sets out the door. The stars are shining and the night is warm. In about an hour you reach the farm, which seems to be a corn and beet farm in the hills above the village, which is itself in the lower foothills of the mountains.
    The entrance to what was the cellar is covered with large rocks at least 150lbs a each. You are not surprised when you learn that it took both brothers to move each one.

    Set down my pack and have Alex step to one side. Since Angus can lift 300 pounds over his head, there's no reason not to show off and toss some boulders around, clearing the entrance.

    Alex is not impressed and after you have moved about half of them he says "I hope you plan on killing all of them, or putting the rocks back when you are done". You then start hearing some skittering.

    Oh, absolutely sir.

    At the sounds of skittering I put down my rock and grab the dagger, ready to attack any vermin that approach.

    You hit the three rats to come out of the hole, the first two stick on your dagger while the third gets a massive blow that throws him into three more, killing all four of them. Two of them try to jump and attack you but a reflexive blow from your off hand takes them both out. Two of them manage to bite at you legs.

    Congratulations, you now have a pair of rat skin overshoes. Gross. Your next slash bisects 3 rats and your fist hits 4 more, killing all of them. They still keep coming.
