[Sellswords] The Herbs of the Kharnos Forest

Today I played the third scenario of my Solo campaign of "Sellswords & Spellslingers". The basic scenario was from the rulebook: In search of rare herbs pg50.

Amron and his servants venture through the Kharnos forest to pick rare ingredients for potions. In addition to danger represented by wildlife and carnivorous plants, they are ambushed by Goblins.

Background:
Amron was intrigued by alchemy. He was studying this prodigious science, but he was not still ready to brew his potions. Then he decided to venture in the near Kharnos forest and pick some ingredients to trade for potions or cheaper prices from the alchemist of Lakoras.
He and his group were venturing in the forest from some time, when they heard they heard some noises and evil giggles. Amron immediately recognized the unpleasant voices: Goblins!
Amron: "I'm losing my patience with these goblinoids, they are everywhere..." πŸ˜’
then he made a silent signal to his companions and said:
Amron: "So be it, we don't need to waste our precious time... We must find enough herbs for buy or trade some potions..."

Amron and The Twins are near the herbs, but could not collect them. Later a carnivorous plant attack them, injuring them.
