Einar Blackthorn, Ranger
Spoiler (click to show/hide)
would be approachable for this kind of thing. He's unlikely to become a 'full member', as it were, of any organisation but could likely be considered a reliable contact for any group that needs to get hold of a tracker/hunter with no qualms about getting his hands dirty.

Fair warning, Einar is a survivor. If it looks like the authorities are catching up to the group, he will not be going down with them. He's very much the type to slink quietly away and start afresh.

But have the group make contact and let's see how it goes. :)

"Schmir! Get in here! " , the large man bellowed. On his servants' arrival, the large man wiped the sweat from his jowls and passed a number of notes to his manservant.
" It is time, Schmir, take these messages to the ones I have named. Too long has this land sat quiet, now we shall strike whilst they are unaware of our presence. "
 " Go now!"  , he commanded and pushed back his chair, his beady eyes reflecting the red glow of the fireplace.

(Is your PC of questionable character sad and alone, watching out the window mournfully as groups of happy goody two shoes adventurers head off on dungeon raids and return with precious treasures? Are you tired of playing games of solitaire in your dingy inn room? Are you the only one who laughs at your delightfully evil jokes? Do your maniacal plans fall on deaf ears? Well , then, let us no longer suffer in silence. Let us form together to further the cause of destruction, madness and world domination. At least to start.)

Please post if you have a PC who might like to join this type of adventuring group and we shall endeavor to create a weekly gaming session. Hoping to follow up on a couple of DM led quests that were introduced a few months back. ( Perhaps the Nightborne Court would like an adventuring group as allies)

(The storyline continues)

Kandel rode Southwest out of Oaknoll to Hap, where he stopped and bought a blue rose 🌹 from the “flower lady.”

He asked her if she had heard of Shadows in the area, but she replied that the temple to Lathander protected the village.  She added that there may be Shadows in Blackfeather Bridge.

Kandel smiled his pain-twisted smile to her in thanks and rode South. 

Arriving riding several hours to Blackfeather and stabling his horse, Ash, with the trader, Kandel spoke with Rufus the Drunk, who swayed constantly on his stool.  However, Rufus could only manage to mumble about a key to the common room, for which Kandel paid and put to use by praying for guidance. 

In the middle of his prayer, Kandel heard the word “West.”

Looking about and finding no one else in the room, Kandel decided to ask about Western shadows in the tavern nearby.

After completing his prayer, Kandel approached the bartender to ask if he had heard of any shadows to the West. 

Starting slightly, the bartender looked the scarred priest up and down a moment before answering, “What are you hunting, priest?”

“I am ‘sent’ by the Enduring One to find shadows to the West.”

After waiting for more from the priest, bartender replies, “The old mine.  Don’t enter it alone if you would live to see the next day.”

Kandel nods solemnly in thanks and asks for directions.

The bartender sighs and answers “Follow the Ashabenford East until you come to the foot bridge to the South bank.  The mine is in the hills just West of there.  And may your patron watch over you.”  Once Kandel turns towards the door, the bartender mumbles “damned fools” under his breath.

Kandel nods solemnly in thanks and walks out of the tavern, taking an apple from his pack.
Announced Events / Shadows Rising in the South

Kandel woke from a dark, disturbing dream in the Oaknoll Common Room to Shadows flowing all over the walls.  Uncovering his shield and letting the light shine, he saw nothing but the bunks and walls of the room.  Once  his heart stopped racing, he began praying for guidance from the Enduring One.

There was one clear message he had been given, and that was a direction: South by Southwest.

Who: Anyone, 8th level & above.

When: Wednesday 2nd October, 2pm Eastern / 7pm GMT

Where: Battle Court, Essembra

This is an open player-led event organised by @goatte (Kandel) so please hit them up if you have questions :)

Currently live on the server. Notable changes:

* Six new dungeons have been added to the module: the Deep Mansion, the Black Hound Compound, the Forgotten Archive, the Halls of Decay, Deljack's Grotto, and the grand Tower of Dracandros. More details will be added to our wiki once they're found and scouted by intrepid explorers.

* The Tripletoe, Snareblood, and Demoneye tribes have all made extensive renovations to their lairs around Essembra. Bold young adventurers are encouraged to test their wits and their blades against the thriving hordes.
Chronicles / The Summer Solstice Festival of 1376 DR
« Last post by Druie on June 26, 2019, 01:31:05 PM »
Essembrans and travellers turned out to the grounds of Aencar's Keep to the festival celebrating the summertime and the solstice.

Lord Jarath Burlisk was there with is retinue - living and ghostly - and seeing him hale and healthy as ever put a cheer among the common folk who had seen their previous lord suffer ill health before his murder last year.

Jarath himself gave few speeches - but he did celebrate the loyalty and resilience of the people of Essembra and Battledale, and renewed the call for brave men and women seeking to make something of themselves to pledge into the service of the Mailed Mantle or the Lord's Men.

As for the contests promised by the festival, the results were:

Pie Eating Champion: Grand Mage of Mistletarn, Heliott, who holds his title for the second year running!

Pugilist Extraordinaire: Swordcaptain Birvon 'The Mountain' Bloodhorn of the Lord's Men

Keenest Eyed Archer: the ranger Maurice Greenpocket

Master of the Joust: Dragonguard Aubric Hallemont of Featherdale

'Queen of Summer', bardic favourite: Morressyn of Battledale

Same goes for Sunday!

Start times will be announced in discord also.  8)
