The outpost of Crinsdale sits half a days walk from the Wall surrounding Eldorn. The West side of Eldorn, is built upon the edge of a great chasm that dives into the earth. Patrols are uncommon, but an unhealthy risk that carries a steep penalty for unregistered parties entering the city. On top of that, a Kor Key is required to actually open many of the gates in and out of the city. Entering the city would be difficult without said key. Therefore, at least at some level, entering the city requires the caravan.
360 Experience was handed out at the end with loot as well. David made out like a bandit.
