As follows is the summary of our first session. Feel free to role-play and flesh out interactions as each of you see fit, especially during the 2 day mach to Twin Forks (where we will begin, next session...)
Each of you had journeyed from your own respective places (each recieved a hook which I will not utter here) and arrived in the Village of Harker's Ferry.
Over the course of the last few days, each of you came to realize through idle conversations (not too many adventuring types around here) that you all shared a common goal, the legendary dwarven fortress Dharzoul. On a busy, what called for busy in Harker's Ferry at least, night there was an old man sitting near the fire telling tales for copper. One of his stories in particularly caught each of your attention, his recounting of a mighty dragon who was brought to ruin by a powerful lich.
As you questioned, it became quite clear that this teller of tales was merely spining tales spun on tales. However, soon after as you sat back at your own table, a man approached named Arik and was granted a tankard of the B;ue Gill's finest. He made the claim that if you were interested in that "Dragon mountain" than you should seek out a man named Lothar the Shiv in a village not 3 days north of here. (The successful spot rewarded each of you with the information that at the mere mention of "Lothar" two men ran out of the inn) XP: 50
In the morning, after deciding to part for Twin Forks, you head north. The road is well-traveled, especially with farmers and merchants carrying various forms of grain, and smooth. However, nearing dusk (spot success) you notice a pair of riders, about a quarter mile away, standing...watching...they ride off suddenly. Quickly you vactated the road moving behind a copse of trees. (Spot...the riders are too far away to gather any discernible information...but there is definately something moving behind that boulder...) Great job on surprising and ambushing the "ambushers." XP: 400
After the conclusion of battle, the two leaders of this bandit party were captured, one of them has fully agreed to assist you in locating Lothar (come to find out, they are paid by Lothar to watch these roads, any one searching for him is to be stopped so that word can be brought to him) he has never met Lothar personally but he contracts through a man named Artur, you also discovered that Artur has a slave named Arcana (a mage at that) that is apparently not overly fond of Artur or being in servitude (this is however disputed by the unfriendly second prisoner...even though he was tortured by Nicos...(btw not very lawful
) XP: 100
You have now set out with increased fervor to reach Twin Forks.
The LandsTotal XP: 550
