Too early for snakes. Maybe later. What are the chances of orcs and brigands?

A flood that comes crashing in from the River Entwash all unexpected? (this actually seems most likely)
Yes. If this rain has been lasting for a long time, this is quite possible. I am not sure how far the Entwash is from them, but if the water gets there, they will be in sad trouble, since they're in such a low area.

Is any character's mood ready to break under the strain? Tempers flare?
I like this idea, too.

What about some folk getting sick, like Eodwine predicted, after digging in the muck? I was thinking of making Javan sick. How long would suck a sickness last?
