Heroes of the Nentir Vale

Beginnings

Sixth-day of Flocktime, Year 98 BW

  • The party was hired by Nimozaran the Green, High Septarch of Fallcrest, to investigate the kobolds in the Kobold Hall. He noticed that they were too organized and too aggresive than the kobolds he had dealt with in the past.
  • After dispatching a number of kobolds at the Kobold Hall, the party found a secret set of stairs leading down to the White Dragon, Szartharrax.
  • In his horde you found a letter written in Draconic that Kylion was able to interpret with the aid of his Comprehend Languages ritual. It mentioned an offer of alliance from a goblin warlord named Irontooth.
  • After hearing of your successful venture in defeating the kobolds, the party was approached by a woman looking for her lost husband, Douven.
  • You were also contacted by a priest of Pelor to speak with Marla at the Great Church. There, she asked if you would accompany her to the town of Winterhaven to investigate a death cult, led by one named Kalarel.
  • On the way, the party was ambushed by kobold brigands, which upon arrival the people of Winterhaven mentioned that they had been having problems with kobold raid groups along the roads.
  • In town, the party gained information leading to the whereabouts of Douven; at a suppossed dragon tomb, and about a kobold lair in the area.
  • When asked about any cult activity in the area, no one in the village thought there was one, save Ninaran, an elven ranger. She was quite cold, but pointed out that she thought they were in league with the kobolds whose lair was behind a waterfall.
  • At the dragon tomb, the party dispatched a small band and freed Douvan, who thanked you and returned home.
  • At the kobold lair, which Ninaran pointed out, the party overcame the many kobolds and their leader Irontooth, who exclaimed at his death, “Kalarel and Lord Orcus, prepare my way!” leading the party to discover that the cult indeed must be in league with the kobolds.
  • A scroll found in Irontooth’s possesions signed by Kalarel read, “My spy in Winterhaven suggests we keep an eye out for visitors to the area. It probably does not matter; in just a few more days, I’ll completely open the rift. Then Winterhaven’s people will serve as food for all those Lord Orcus sends to do my bidding.”
  • On the trip back to Winterhaven, the party encountered a group of hobgoblin brigands who demanded a toll. The party refused and a battle ensued.
  • In the battle, mysterious ranger appeared began filling the brigands with arrows.
  • The ranger introduced himself as Uriel. He stated that he had been tracking a group of slavers called the Bloodreavers. This group of slavers had apparently attacked a caravan nearby.
  • Not far, Uriel tracked down the captured merchants. They were most grateful when they were freed and accompanied by their guards went on their way.
  • Back to town, Valthrun the Prescient was able to give the party more info on the Keep on the Shadowfell. In decades past it had been built to protect against a gate to the Shadowfell. The commander, Sir Keegan, had gone crazy and killed his family and many of his soldiers before being trapped in the Keep. Now, many years later, the Keep has fallen into ruin.
