Kielo caverns used to be infested by the worst monsters imaginable, groups of adventurers regularly entered their depths never to return. Then, 50 years ago the dwarven hero Kielo went on a one man slaying spree, clearing out the caverns and allowing trade with the kingdom of Derist to flourish. Merchant caravans traveled her winding passages on a daily basis.
However, three years ago the monsters returned, but this time they were different. Rather than simply killing anyone in their territory they started abducting intruders. The caravans continued, but now time they were under heavy guard. Each group typically has 10 wagons and close to 50 guards.
The most recent human group, lead by the wizard Ignus, had most unfortunate luck so far. They had lost nearly 15 people to the monsters so far, and had fallen prey to numerous traps. However the worst came at Reteger bridge. The thick stone bridge was the only method of crossing the raging river beneath, and as the group crossed the bridge suddenly collapsed.
Separated from the others will our intrepid heroes find their way out, save the remainder of their caravan, or succumb to the monsters of the depths? General:
The game will be exploration focused and most of the social interaction will be between players at first.

PCs don't need to know each other at the beginning, however you all were part of the caravan.
