Enter the Dragon

((Party Composition: Solstan – Grey Elven Bard, Ironbeard – Dwarven Ranger, Lylle – Half-Elven Druid, Delmarr – Human Paladin of Pelor, Callix – Human Warrior, Ajex – Human Rogue))

The “lost” city now has a name. A bit of research later the name is Xim, the city of Iron. Long ago it was the cpatial of a great empire, the city itself was known for its steel and iron works. But over 3000 years ago something destroyed it. Not much more was found out but at least it has a name now.

They head back, this is no easy jounry taking many miles and through obviously dangerous lands. But return they do, and deciding it best to not spend the night in the city but really close to it they sleep right outside the ruins of it.

Unfortunately this wasn’t far enough away for some of the creatures that haunt it. A group of armed and angry spirits assaulted the group. A desprate fight ensured but the heroes prevailed. They head into the city early and that is when … the Dragon enters. Flying overhead a massive dragon appeared, luckily he did not seem interested in the group but his very presence seems to have had it’s effect. Four members colapse and the remaining two see changes in the land and the city right before their eyes. Something bad is happening.

((Short session))

Into the Woods

And so Ajex and Callix went in search of money. They hired a local hunter and priest and headed into the wilderness. It was a long trek and they saw signs of orcs nearly every step but they managed with some luck to find the missing barmaid. Unfortunately she was not alone.

They came to find that the druid they sought had a helper, a tall well armed and armored troll they never expected to find. It tought a brutal battle to bring them both down and save the girl. The cost was the life of both the ranger and the priest. It also left many questions unanswered.

What was the mysterious plant thing that seemed to be soaking up the blood from the sacrifices? Why was this druid worshiping it? Where did this new type of troll come from?

Happy go lucky guys as they were the ranger Erik and priest Grandon had been brothers-in arms, there was a bond there. They could not just let things lie like this. The returned to Coldbridge, gave the families a share of the reward, and headed back out to visit the druid encampment and get some answers.

These answers would not be easy in coming. It was a long and dangerous trip to the Winter Watch, and it was not straight forward in finding any answers either. The druids there knew of their lost member, but they had no answer as to why he was sacrificing people. They did know he and a team of researchers who also have gone missing went to this recently found “lost city”. So they went there, looked about found out a little from a rather helpful spirit and left to report in with the druids. Trying to return proved deadly, and so they have returned to the druids again seeking extra help. Now joined by Delmarr the Paladin, Solstan the Grey Elven Bard, Iron Beard the Dwarven Ranger, and Lylle the Half Elven Druid they will set out once again.

Welcome to your Adventure Log!
A blog for your campaign

Two nerdowells sitting in the Broken Wagon come to the realization that they are running low on beer money. Work is unthinkable so they must find a way to gain needed funds without doing too much. Ajax the thin but agile one pulls a posting from the board and hands it to his drinking partner Callix.

“Look 1000 gold all we need to do is kill a troll.” Ajax points out.

Callix nods, he’s heard about this reward already even heard there is a knight recruiting for it. So he shares that story with his pal. “There is this knight gathering folk already. Maybe we can join and make some money, I am getting thirsty.” He explains.

So off the go and find this knight (Sir Trunbul Dreadblade) they do. They sign up and then for some reason agree to find a tracker.

“How did we get hooked into finding the tracker?” Callix asks.

“I don’t recall. All I said was I knew a starting point for our search.” Ajax explains.

“No more offering information it seems to create work for us.” Callix demands as they enter the drinking hole of many of the local hunters simply called the Beer Hall.

Callix spots a dwarf, he looks like a hunter so Callix spends some of his little remaining coin and buys him a drink. They converse, this dwarf turns out to be a trapper named Vulgar and he agrees to track for them. Ajax is thrilled this “work” is done and they head back with their “tracker” in tow.

Well to make a long and rather painful story shorter Vulgar seems about as good a tracker as Callix, which is to say he aint very good. They spend a day nearly so lost they can’t find their way back and then give up the hunt for now.

Normally our two defenders of lassitude would call it a day and get some sleep. But the lack of beer money prompts them to action. They start asking about, talking to locals, barkeeps, and well women whenever possible. Finally they uncover more then they guessed. The missing barmaid was an elf and the missing farm hand her love moreso the two were talking marriage openly. Seems both families were supportive thus dismissing the idea of them running away to marry. Finally they find a small hint at trouble. Seems this druid was making eyes at the barmaid and he may even have threatened her. But who is this druid, his name seems to avoid them at every turn.

Finally through a stroke of sheer brillance they decide to check out herb shops asking about anything people can recall about him. They find he had an arguement with a local hunter recently. They track this hunter down using skills they never knew they had, they ask a local leatherworker about him, and then wait to meet the him.

Finally they find this man, his black hair neatly trimmed, they approach and ask for his wisdom. Their enemy has a name, Bearclaw, and he is indeed not a nice guy. Is he truly behind this crime, well they don’t know but hey facts be damned they have a tracker and they aim go back to the tracking. Ok so they forgot to get help this time, ok so they are just three now against well a cow entrancing druid and a mysterous “troll” but surely the gods are on their side. As they cross the bridge on the way to the farm once again they all look under it just to be sure then rush to begin this adventure with renewed gusto.
