The Eternal Brotherhood

In the Beginning
Everybody loves a happy ending, right?

Dak and Thorir entered the city of Fallcrest on a seemingly ordinary day, at least that’s what it seemed like to Dak. Thorir, who had rarely been more than a few miles away from Westerfield, could not comprehend what he was seeing. The city walls stood fifty feet above the ground. Buildings made with stone, polished wood, and (gasp!) clay roof tiles amazed the young warrior, who had never known anything but thatched roofs and dirt floors. Thanks to a very helpful guard, the duo had directions to Orest Naerumar’s shop. Once inside, Dak looked around at the wares and, thanks to his exceptional arcane knowledge, noticed that most of it was junk. Thorir thought all of it was beyond his wildest dreams.

Fighting the Falcons
What to do when you murder everyone's heroes...

The Falcons stood feet away. They were coming towards the Hall, our heroes had but two choices, fight or attempt to negotiate with a group who had already mercilessly murdered another “loose end.” They chose fight, and stormed out the doors, spells and shurikens a-blazing. Little Wil stood taken aback, yelling at Dak to stop trying to kill him. Thorir burst out the doors and faced Bruce, the Falcon’s big man, toe-to-toe. Gorstag fired off spell after spell, but as he was still getting used to not being dead, he missed most of the time.

Road to Winterhaven
The innocence of a son is surpassed only by the father's will to save it.

Our heroes, hunting down and exterminating the River Rats on behalf of the Lord Warden, Faren Markelhay, crept through the sewers on the maintenance walkways adjacent to the sewers themselves. Rolsten, secret agent of the Lord Warden, took point. They saw light coming from an intersection in the sewer streams, and went forth to investigate. As the light came from the other side of the maintenance tunnel, they were forced to continue a bit farther towards a bridge which crossed the stream of filth, which seemed to glisten slightly in the light.

Some guy named Douven
Or was it Devon? Dillon? David?

Having been sent to Winterhaven by the Lord Warden of Fallcrest, our heroes found themselves along the King’s Road. As they neared Winterhaven, they noticed something shifty going on near some boulders…

Into the Keep
Our heroes descend into darkness to face the rising threat

After escorting Douven to the gates of Winterhaven, our heroes immediately continued forth to face the kobold threat. They arrived at the waterfall which Ninaran described, but a treeline blocked their path. However, the party’s keen senses managed to notice a group of creatures gathered near a shallow river bed. Suddenly the creatures sprang into action!

The Adventures of Splug
A brave young goblin betrays his own to take vengeance upon those who wronged him

Most goblins are happy with a dirty cave, bad ale, stale bread and cheap women, as long as they can bash in some heads often enough. Splug is not like most goblins. Splug dreams of living in a city, perhaps owning or at least running a successful gambling establishment. He dreams of fast wagons and quick money. His dreams often earn him the ire of his people.

Creepy Crawlies and Gorstag's Follies
Our heroes descend into a nightmarish maze

After resting to recuperate from the attack of the killer cube, our heroes continued to explore the natural cave complex. They came upon a hole in the ground, at the bottom of which lay a chitinous creature, dead. They looked closely at their surroundings and noticed another pit, but this one was concealed. Clearly someone laid these traps, but was it to keep intruders out, or something in? They also noticed many holes in the wall, as if some small creature were burrowing…

Attack of the Killer Slime
Our heroes narrowly avoid a goopy death

Our heroes, less Splug (who chose to remain behind to guard the escape path), descended further into the Keep on the Shadowfell. They noticed a pair of hobgoblins, whom they recognized by their red skin and pointy ears, standing near a well. Dak and Thorir decided to approach cautiously, lest they begin unnecessary conflicts. One of the hobgoblins noted their approach and yelled “Shadow seeks shadow!” Dak realized there must be a pass phrase, and made a feeble attempt. He failed. The hobgoblins called for reinforcements and drew their flails.

And Then There Were Five
A new dawn forms on the horizon for our heroes

After retracing their steps to the hobgoblin stronghold within the Keep, our heroes came upon a cat-like humanoid with a wolf companion. After tense negotiation, she revealed herself to be Aurora, a Razorclaw Shifter who came to the Keep because of rumors of evil goings on. Aurora also mentioned that she had only met a single goblin in the Keep so far, and pushed him into the well into which he was urinating freely. The party was outraged that she had thrown Splug into his own bodily fluids and Thorir went to rescue their poor friend.

Kalarel's Cultists
Two heroes emerge to aid our party

After almost drowning in a whirlpool trap, Gorstag, accompanied by the Mad Priest, soothed his nerves with drink within the Bag of Holding. As he crept into safety, two figures emerged from the remnants of the whirlpool, and insisted on calling it a “were-pool”. Oddly enough, our heroes took a very short time to welcome these newcomers, a changeling with psionic powers named Gin and a minotaur barbarian named Godfuck, into the fold. Beyond the door ahead came a smell so putrid it was like to curdle milk. The party bashed in the door and began an onslaught.
