Festival, Fire & Fearless Adventurers
Following the chaotic end to this years Swallowtail Festival our group of unlikely friends have fast become local heroes, dubbed “The Goblin Slayers”.
Having taken care of a few matters around town such as going boar hunting in Tickwood forest with local baron the heroes saved in the goblin raid, Aldern Foxglove, which turned out to be a farce for the sake of boosting Aldern’s ego. Investigating the desecration of a local mausoleum, that of the towns previous priest. The priests remains were gone and two animated skeletons were left waiting for our heroes. After the discovery of a dissipated Robe of Bones in the mausoleum our heroes spoke with Sheriff Hemlock the local ranger, Shalelu, who had just arrived in town much sooner than expected. Stories of organised goblin tribes working together left everyone quite concerned with who might be leading the goblin tribes. Shalelu accompanied the heroes in tracking goblin footprints and the footprints of another indiscernible medium sized humanoid from the towns graveyard, over the north wall and into Tickwood forest, the tracks went cold not far into the forest. The Slaying a goblin commando who’d been hiding under the floorboards of family home, terrifying the little boy who lived there. Unfortunately the Goblin Slayers arrived on the scene after the boy’s father had taken matters into his own hands at the cost of his life, being half eaten by the ravenous goblin. Meanwhile Garridan managed to get get himself into trouble with local shopkeeper, Vin Vinder, by first plowing his promiscuous daughter in the shops basement and the latter that night sneaking into her room above the shop. Both encounters ended with Garridan being knocked unconscious with a single hit from burly Vin.
Now after awakening to a new day (well not Garridan) our heros have gone downstairs to have breakfast at the inn which they have been staying at for the past few days however the inns owner, Ameiko Kaijitsu, is nowhere to be found. The halfling bar maid accompanied the heroes into Ameiko’s bedroom where they found a note from her estranged half brother Tsuto hinting that their father, local nobleman Lonjiku Kaijitsu, might be behind the goblin raid on the town and to meet her at the Glassworks. With recollections of Lonjiku berating Ameiko the first night the heroes stayed at the inn and knowledge that Lonjiku owns the Glassworks our heroes have gone to investigate while Garridan sleeps off a splitting headache and a swollen-shut right eye.
