Forest for the Trees

The begining

Our group consisting of Shrike Scrump the Giant Thaddeus and De’adry gathered in Mesa Pass. De’adry’s mother had died of rot grub making de’adry the new matriarch of the Rift Walkers clan. Before a ritual burial could be performed De’adry’s home was attacked by bandits. We managed to kill them and discover that they were hired by poachers who were hiding somewhere deeper in the forests. Oh and we discovered Serah who was trying to sneak up on De’adry and stab her. We tracked down the bandits camp which was in ruins and were attacked by Troglodytes. De’adry died,. Thaddeus had a near death encounter and met his god The Wanderer who commanded him to go into the rift. The rest of us fled into a tunnel.

Amongst the dwarves

De’adry has died at the hands of Troglodytes and Thaddeus nearly escaped death. Our group of heroes was captured by dwarves and taken to their leader Ozruk. Atriel, the sister to De’adry followed us into the cave and was captured aswell. Ozurk was not pleased that the dwarves home was found but made a deal with Thaddeus. He would lead the dwarves to a new home as it looked like their current one would soon be crushed by the roots of trees. After leaving the cave we found an acid pool containing the Telescope of Teleportation which we managed to gather. They also re-entered the bandits came and found the The Emerald Slug (which had been Serah’s). Shortly after we came upon a cave which was inhabited by Klush the ice dragon. He demanded tribite but thaddeus decided it was best that we attack him instead. With much difficulty, klush was slain by scrump (who killed them from the inside). As a result Scrump was frozen in a block of ice.

Consequences
This is why no one brags about killing a dragon.

The dragon we killed was emissary to the ice forest and now there will be a war. Whoops. Scrump was still frozen from the encounter so we headed to Mesa Pass to get help from Atriel‘s people. Meanwhile Thaddeus is determined to turn the dragon remains into armour and weapons so he tried to get some help from the dwarves. They didn’t appreciate this much so they pumelled him and through him into a pit. He Escaped though. At this time Shrike also went in search of the poacher’s location. He found them, attempted to dismantle their slug harvesting machines and got caught. It seems they may have put an enchantment on hi then sent him on his way. When our heroes gathered once more we decided to seek aid to head towards the ice forest to try and smooth matters over. Along the way we will try to make some cool dragon gear and find a place for the rift walkers to settle before they can go back home.

Arrival In Nulty's harbour
session number...4?

While Thaddeus went to investigate the The Wanderer‘s temple nearby, Shrike, Scrump and Atriel went to Nulty’s harbour to speak with Duke Silus about providing aid to the Rift Walkers. He was not pleased by this request but he made a deal with Atriel, if they helped to discover the source of the strange disappearances and reappearances of the townspeople then he would grant the Rift walkers temporary stay. The group went to the tavern and discovered some clues from a wandering minstrel. This led them to an inn that was boarded up in which they found a hoard of cavedwelling goblins! They slew the goblins and discovered an underground tunnel in the the basement. They also rescued a young man, his wife and his father. It seemed that his mother had also been taken and was likely down in the tunnels. The trio decided to rescue her, along the way Shrike heard a voice telling him to lead his friends into danger. He gave in to the enchantment and let scrump fall into the arms of a Roper. During the battle he also pushed Atriel into danger. Thankfully, with some quick thinking and keen senses they discovered the monster’s weakness and killed it. Atriel new that Shrike had pushed her and when he confessed to doing it but not know why she attempted to remove the enchantment. She failed, causing the enchantment to enter her. Atriel then tried to attack Scrump but was thrwarted and had her axe given to Serah. They eventually moved along the tunnel to a room where they discovered a Naga (the source of the enchantment) and a hoard of goblins. Our heros fought and killed the Naga and her minions and are now resting before they continue their quest.
