The party arrived in Beertown to collect the bounty for the ferocious mutant panda they slew at the request of the town council. After collecting their reward, the party decided to spend some time in the local bar, to relax.
Okay, Dodk decided to spend time in the bar, but Nerth and the kittens followed.
After being rejected by every woman in the bar, Dodk decided to drown his sorrows in alcohol, like he usually does. While the ladies played with the kitten swarm, Nerth asked the bartender if there was anything going on that they should know about. The bartender replied that a group of badders had attacked the other day, and that it would be really helpful if someone got rid of them.
