Our Heroes' Triumphant Return

Oaktop Silver Mine

● A broken sign reads Oaktop S———-ine above a rocky outcropping with a large crevasse. There is a mite (fey) in a rough cage.

● A Kobold entreats us to enter the mine and talk to Chief Sootscale and Tartuk, their shaman. Elean bargained for the kobolds to make us a map of the bandit
camp.

● “Mites live in big, ugly tree.”

● “There are many humans on other side of river.”

● Chief Sootscale pointed out where the bigger bandit camp is on the map.

Quest: retrieve sacred statue. Quest rewards:

○ magic dust
○ brass ring w/ pearl
○ 250 gold

Quest: a curse has befallen the tribe. Kobolds turn yellow and die. Death of Tartuk, the Usurper leads to…

○ Chief Sootscale broke the statue to break the curse.
○ journal: Tartook was a gnome who died in a battle against kobolds. In an attempt to surrender, his town thought he was sacrificing himself. Therefore, they used their one reincarnation spell to reincarnate him, and he became a Kobold. Then he went vengeance crazy and infiltrated Kobold camps to destroy them.

○ scroll of Fly
○ sickle

Big, Gnarly Tree: Mites Home

We found the entrance to the mite warrens amongst the roots of the tree.

● Score sheet. Us: statue, coins, and spears. Them: magic dust, lots of coins, and shiny human ring.
● Table Map: map to Sootscale cave

Then, ride back hard and fast to Kobolds.
Gather map of bandit camp.
Make our way to bandits.

This One Time? At Bandit Camp?
[Elean enters, stage left]

Thorn River (Bandit) Camp

● We decide to carefully explore the suspected Bandit Camp location by following the river through the area.

● As we approach we meet Elean Vessire Rogarvia who slips out of the underbrush to inform us that the bandits are expecting us and have set a trap.

● We come up with a brilliant plan that utterly fails, and we proceed to show them how not to hit the broadside of a barn. Repeatedly. …and, yet, we eventually prevail.

● Interrogated final bandit

○ eager to get away from the Stag Lord
○ Stag Lord south along the river
○ Mites, small fey-kin goblinoid things, are to the east

The Adventure Begins!

Our Party:

Graeme Koenigs
Isolda Thrace
Thrash Sliental (and Bull)
Handel

Master Captain Kaskavili, representative of the Aldori Swordlords, has dispatched us to explore The Stolen Lands and dispatch justice to the lawless brigands therein:

“Be it known that the bearer of this charter has been charged by the Swordlords of Restov, acting upon the greater good and authority vested within them by the office of the Regent of the Dragonscale Throne, has granted the right of exploration and travel within the wilderness region known as the Greenbelt. Exploration should be limited to an area no further than thirty-six miles east and west and sixty miles south of ”/wikis/olegs-trading-post" class=“wiki-page-link”> Oleg’s Trading Post. The carrier of this charter should also strive against banditry and other unlawful behavior encountered. The punishment for unrepentant banditry remains, as always, execution by sword or rope. So witnessed on this 24th day of Talistril, under the watchful eye of the Lordship of Restov and authority granted by the Lord Noleski Surtova, current Regent of the Dragonscale Throne.

At Oleg’s Trading Post, the party met Oleg & Svetlana Leveton.

Quest: “Save us from the bandits.” We did.

  • Questioned bandit horse to discover the bandit camp is “about a day’s ride” in a vaguely southward direction
  • Questioned captured bandit to discover…
    ■ Bandit camp leader: Kressel, lady bandit
    ■ “about a dozen” in the camp
    ■ then we killed him; we gave him a chance to run and took him down with an arrow

Quest: Svetlana wants Moon Radishes. We got them for her.

Quest: Find Svetlana’s wedding ring stolen in earlier bandit raids.

Quest: Bandit Bounty of 400gp per 6 bandits. Collect right ears.

  • Current count: 4 + 8

Quest: Kobold encampment “somewhere to the south”

Info: Bokken, hermit “to the east” is “good with potions”

Oleg’s Trading Post’s Guards

  • Arrived after we dealt with the bandits, while we were out exploring the Greenbelt.
  • Leader: Kesten Garess — disowned noble who had an affair with a commoner
  • +3 more guards

Quest: Falgrim Sneeg, betrayed the guards on their way to Oleg’s and “stole several 100 gold”

  • Grig: “Tig”-something-or-other-unpronounceable
  • Faerie Dragon: Perlivash

“smelly thieves to the east”

“ruins to the west”

makers of the bear traps may not be the bandits, something else to explore?
