Tracker and his wolf run to attack the creature next, and the creature attempts to scratch Tracker's faithful wolf with his massive claw [12 hp]. Wolf yelps, but attacks anyway. Unfortunately, his bite misses its target.
Next, Tracker attacks (you didn't add a weapon to your character. You start with one weapon.) Whatever he attacks with, it misses (all melee weapons are at +2, and that misses.)
Yahjhank gets to the left side of the creature (to the right from the party's perspective) and gets in a lucky strike with his strange weapon (these things are MEAN when they crit. (AP used on the confirmation to crit). And this becomes one of the shortest combats ever. With a slice of his wicked-looking scythe, the crab-like creature is split in two, no longer moving.

|That was rather anti-climactic! I have half a mind to say you did min damage with that crit Oh well!|
Anyway, getting a closer look, Tracker realizes that the creature was a young Carcass Crab. It appears to have been injured and was probably protecting its territory from the warforged invaders (and the halflings and elves before that).
Anyway, looting the battlefield, the characters find the following items of interest over the course of the next 6 hours:
Small Talenta Tangat
1 stick with strange symbols on it
A cloak with strange symbols on it
8 vials of unknown liquids
A suit of half-plate armor
An expensive-looking metal object
A piece of paper... some kind of IOU from a place called Kundarak. It appears to be for 400gp
A total of 250 sp, 38 gp, and 4 pp
