The party made their way through Kuto's Well toward the River Stojanow, emerging first into a dark well deep under the earth. Finding their way quickly out of the drow hold, they found themselves immediately beneath the ancient bridge.
Seeing the leader of the orc guards protecting the ancient entrance into Valjevo Castle, Acacia couldn't resist taking the opportunity, and ended him with a single arrow. Raising the alarm, the party fought a pitched battle, ultimately escaping west into the woods.
Safe and dealing with a series of wounds from the fight, they decided to try to find a safer way into the castle, eventually reaching the northern secret entrance, a last measure designed in the early days of the Valjevo line to safeguard the royal family and keep them safely beneath the keep.
The party tripped one trap and disabled another, finding themselves in a six room vault designed for the survivors of an desperate battle to recover their senses and decide their next steps.
