I don't want to spoil too much for those that don't play the beta, but definitely more challenging than the west road I did have a lot of trouble with the wererats, but the bigger version that's lurking in there was quite easy... Odd I will replay from the beginning later this week. I know you mentioned in the first post that only the first two dungeons are complete, but I'd recommend that the south road is not accessible for now... Right now it is a one way trip for your party and game over. And the one battle that exists in the south is quite difficult.
