As we wind through the canyon with Laurik scouting, we encounter an extraplanar undead called a Borak with a level-sucking gaze attack. Then, later, a massive swarm of Vescibores — abyssal locusts — moving in and out of some caves that used to be for storage. Aron seems to think they are mating, swarming around a single queen inside the caves who, if killed, could disperse the swarm.
Unfortunately we discover an open rift to the abyss in the back of the cave and are unable to close it in time to prevent two vrocs from passing through. We engage them and call a vulpinal outsider to assist us. Eep!
