Chronicles / Slave labour revealed in Mistledale - a troupe of Halflings freed!
« Last post by Druie on Yesterday at 11:28:05 AM »
Rumour has it that the Guild of Alchemists in Essembra called for some help investigating irregularities in a supply of reagents - it is said that someone had been inscribing 'help us' into several large leaves hidden in the middle of sheafs of produce that found its way into the Guild's storeroom.

Adventurers including the halflings Riggo and Billy, the elf Rethan, Einar the huntsman, and the paladin Orhart answered the call and travelled to Mistledale to investigate.

Gossip travels between dales and towns, but after a visit to Iletian Blackeagle of Black Eagle Coster in Ashabenford, the group paused at the Velvet Veil and then made their way toward the hamlets of Mistlebrook and Mistletarn apparently in search of a kidnapper. What transpired is not generally known, save that it seems a halfling troupe had been kidnapped and put to work in a cellar - their small hands best placed to deal with the fine work of preparing the plant matter for alchemical use. The party slew the ringleader; a man of Voonlar with a Mistran mistress whose very home he had been using for his slave labour, and the traumatised hinfolk were released to freedom and provided with the means to get back on their feet.

The Guild of Alchemists are praised for their wish to investigate the matter, and appear to now be soliciting quotations from other suppliers for some of their reagents. The adventurers receive approving nods and smiles from hinfolk who have yet heard the tale.

Sorry, I didn't respond sooner because I wasn't sure I would still be level 5 or under by then, but it looks like I will be.

Billy (rog3/ftr2) will do his best to be there.   :)

Chronicles / Monstrous Conflicts
« Last post by Archfriend on December 04, 2018, 11:42:20 PM »
Travelers who have made their way to Essembra and through Battledale bring strange tidings from the wilderness as the monstrous tribes dwelling in the forest have begun fighting one another.

Most Battledarrans care little for this and are content that monsters have begun killing each other. Some express curiosity however as to what might have started all this and the more adventurous population have begun discussing the possibility of setting out to investigate these skirmishes happening beyond the Three Rivers Land.

If the monsters have found something to fight over then there is surely something to be gained out there in the forest, even though it may be dangerous to interfere and get caught up in the fighting.

Chronicles / Rotten business in the forest
« Last post by Druie on December 02, 2018, 10:23:33 AM »
Rumour has it that a group of adventurers - the mage Masil, ranger Beldurin, the halfling Billy, knight Orhart, and Red Knight priest Baranya - were called upon by Beluar, one of the Mailed Mantle ghosts to see to a troubling development in the forest from the days of Aencar.

Tales tell that a powerful servant of Moander was defeated by Aencar and magically imprisoned by his elven allies, but the spirit became restless with time and now powerful enough to tempt mortals into helping it to escape. The group found the cave, deep in the Encircling Wood, and delved past the remnants of elven guardians and the undead remnants of Aencar's battle, to discover a small cadre of Talona cultists attempting to break the elven wards.

From what has been overheard told in Essembra, the Talontar high priestess was slain with all her lackeys, thankfully before the wards could be broken. The adventurers are believed to have sealed the cave system behind them and are keeping the exact location secret for obvious reasons. Perhaps notably, an elf-blooded diplomat was dispatched from Wyvernblade Keep, supposedly to elven lands.

In the meantime, adventurers are cautioned to keep an eye out for Talontar activity in the forest. While this small cult cell was destroyed, there is no telling what others may be abroad.
