New Friends and New Stories
While I was enjoying some alone time with some of the valuables I’ve acquired, I was approached by a bunch of rather uptight adventurers that were looking for some acquisitions assistance. Not wanting to turn down an opportunity to help some poor adventurers out with breaking and entering, I whole-heartedly signed on for their quest. Their names are Htaed Scythsoul, Loktar Brash, Aurin Smendle, and Uriel DeAvery. Before we set out for whatever mischief they had in store, I asked if I could hear of their past deeds so I would know who I was working for. That way I wouldn’t find myself mistakenly working for some even more uptight city guard.
So I’m told that Htaed and Loktar met each other in Lazy Willow in the east over the mountains. They were hired by some local government to go clear out some goblin presence in the village of Presdale which they did relatively easily. It seems though that the goblins had struck pretty fast and not many of the buildings were left unravaged. Many were even set aflame in the wild party the goblins had within the boundaries of the village.
After traveling back, Htaed and Loktar met up with Aurin and Uriel to then take a job clearing out a tribe of kobolds in a cave nearby. They succeeded in rescuing an elven woman from the caves being held prisoner named Anhaba Glenville. Soon after that, they got word that it was now goblins that were running amok within the Blitzkreig Mines to the west. They were hired by one of the foremen of the mines, a dwarf named Blain Creegan. It was discovered that the mining operation had accidentally broken into some existing goblin caves which caused the sudden influx of goblin activity with the mines. Upon finding the goblin sorceress Grenil behind the trouble and eliminating her, they came out a couple days later on the other side.
They eventually ended up in Thistlewood where they made contact with the cityguard for more jobs. I’m not sure what job they need more for though they promise to fill me in in the morning. Hopefully this isn’t a trap, otherwise I might have to find somewhere to hide their bodies after they “retire” early from adventuring.
