To reach the Boggard Hunting Grounds, follow these directions from Thorn Ford:
- Northwest (along the Thorn River)
When you arrive, head north a short distance to encounter several Boggards. They’re not any stronger than the ones you may have encountered at Two-River’s Field, although the fact that you’ll regularly be fighting groups of them can make their “Terrifying Croak” ability more dangerous. The more fear effects thrown at you, the more likely characters are to be affected. Prevail, then loot a nearby corpse to find a Ring of Protection +1 along with some other baubles.
Continue north to find a second batch of Boggards, including a Boggard Brute. Be wary of this new specimen, as it’s not above charging past your melee combatants in order to get at your ranged units and casters. Put them down, then loot the Boggard Brute’s body to obtain a Masterwork Light Mace. A nearby corpse contains further rewards, including a Cloak of Resistance +1, a Potion of Aid and a Potion of Shield of Faith.
That’s it for this area. All in all, not a bad way to score some good starter defensive items and earn a bit of XP.
