Days 1-6 of the adventure take place in the human town of Gateway and the Caves of Chaos. The mayor’s daughter and some friends had been outside of the wall and had been captured by some sort of monster. One friend had escaped and made it back to town to tell the tale.
Four adventurers went forth and battled their way through the lair of the Kobolds, but failed to find the missing children. A separate dwarf patrol of two entered the goblin quarters, only to have the private (fighter) slain and the lieutenant (paladin) captured after trying to take on an ogre. The original four adventurers, plus a monk, then slaughtered the goblins and ogre, and then went on to defeat the hobgoblins and rescue the children from the hobgoblin prison.
