The heroes arrive at White Rock, a small village at the foothills of the Farheight Mountains. The walled village is not large. About three dozen buildings fill the interior of the walls. Erith locates the inn and the party enters the Whistling White Fish. Everyone takes a meal and a bath. Corthen advises the innkeeper, Varden, that the horses belong to the High Queen and that someone will retrieve them when they next come to the village.
The group departs White Rock on foot with about four hours of daylight left. The party marches up into the mountain range and makes camp before complete darkness falls. During the first watch, Samira notices movement in the evergreen trees and alerts Corthen before yelling to the others to wake. The camp is stormed by six ravenous trolls that attempt to kill the group. the battle ends and the trolls are defeated with Corthen using the flames of his sword to dispatch them to the afterlife.
