There were fewer guards at their posts than originally assigned. When the heroes questioned the guards, they said some monsters came and captured (or killed) several guards and dragged them off.

The blood trail led to a dead carcass of another wrathful creature, where apparently the injured goblin leader fought and killed the creature. Next to the carcass was a statue of a wrathful woman..[need help with this desciption]..Griz thought this might be a depiction of the wrath rune lord.
