And in today's West Marches game, the players decided (based on my rumors) to go exploring.
They discovered four or five new hexes. They found five magical weapons. They negotiated and avoided combats with various monsters (neanderthals, hellhorses, giant goats, and myconids riding giant ants).
Then, when camping for the fourth night of the expedition, three carrion crawlers attacked.
Luckily, we had enough time left for everyone to roll up a new PC.
