The citizens of Ulgarstat, a hamlet on the eastern edge of Mirkwood, hire the party to find out what has been killing travelers along a well-traveled road. The party discovers, tracks down and kills 3 giant spiders. Two other giant spiders follow them back to Ulgarstat and convince a pack of dire wolves to accompany them. All enemies are either killed or driven away, with few casualties suffered by the citizens of Ulgarstat. The party befriends Sigmar, a former smith of Gondor, and Ulgar, the hamlet’s founder.
