Orders have been retrieved by the previous session. We are going to be moving the camp to establish the next supply depo, so we are sending you to scout out the route. Be careful, there are rumors of Ogres in the area, and there is a confirmed Orc Kingdom living further up the Lone Mountain. If you can fashion any kind of short cut, then you will be rewarded.
3 days out, there is a large river. The road turns south, and maps show that the road crosses the river at a bridge some ways south. The trip around is estimated to take a week.
