After getting separated from your guide, you and your three companions got hopelessly lost in the expansive, dark forest. After raining for two days and nights straight, you are cold and long for a warm bed and a hot meal. At the very least you desire a bit of sunshine and the chance to dry out your clothing.
It is growing colder, and night if falling once more. From not too far in the distance off to your right, a soft growl can be heard followed by a soothing voice that hushed whatever animal had made the noise. This could be your only chance at getting out of this forbidding forest anytime soon.
