After much hustle and bustle in Lothian, the party set out towards Camelot with a caravan in tow. The Gypsy sisters Ealasaid and Gabrielle provided entertainment, the recently sworn in Shane MacGreggor andRhona accompanied as personal guards, and Angus Macduff and Olaf got the fun job of walking alongside the caravan while looking intimidating.
This didn’t work out quite as well as hoped however, since on the third day of travel the caravan was ambushed at a bend in the road, and by the time our heroes had come back to deal with the commotion, half the caravan had been destroyed. Lot was dead or dying while Lancelot guarded him, meanwhile Gawain had already made haste to Camelot.
The party fought a large group of bandits, barely surviving. After the heated battle, Lot sputtered his last, incomprehensible words, only the names of his two sons could be made out. On examining their attackers, Gabrielle noticed that nothing had been taken, and the party was surprised by the equipment and military-like discipline the bandits possessed.
After the battle, Lancelot returned to Lothian to deliver the ill news to Mordred, while the party continued on to Camelot to catch up with Gawain and fulfill their role in encouraging Arthur towards a peaceful future.
