After deciding to get the help of a guide to find Naylor’s place among the various farms, they hire a young 14 year old boy Hunter, which shows them the way to the creepy wizard farmer. After a couple of hours walking down the muddy road, Hunter is surprised by the appearance of a swamp just in front of the old man’s farm. After some difficulty getting Hunter to ignore his curiosity about this swamp, they finally convince him to return and find Osbourne and return. Frank attempts to traverse the swamp in true monkey fashion, by swinging tree to tree. That however only gets her so far as she is unable to get her rope to attach to her 3rd tree for some strange and unusual reason. She returns and tells the others who then attempt to disbelieve, thinking that the swamp is actually an illusion, and it is.
Once they reach the farm, Theodor notices that several of the workers are zombies working the fields, and destroys them. At that point other workers drop their disguise and start shooting arrows and Naylor steps out from behind the farmhouse and unleashes a fiery explosion on the group. Frank and Rroth attempt to trudge through the soggy fields towards the archers as huge snakes attack from the rear. Meanwhile a slender female shoots magical rays and orbs at anyone close to her, all the while laughing and bantering to them. Rroth notices a fork tongue on her for a brief moment, something never before seen on human shaped serpent creatures. After more than a minute of these attacks, Naylor seems to get the upper hand and causes both the healers to collapse. But for no apparent reason, the gaggling beauty disappears and leaves Naylor surrounded by Frank and Trista who take down the old fool with well-placed rapiers. A search of the farmhouse reveals the secret of the giant red cabbages. The cabbages are infused with a slow working poison that causes insanity, a reoccurring theme with followers of the Unspeakable One and the Yellow Sign. They also find a bedchamber for a woman that is not accounted for, with a child’s toy hidden in it. She appears to have been from Chamber’s asylum. However, there is no sign of the kidnapped girls.
