Our adventurers continue on their journey in the country of Talea, they have left the town of Beowick, passed through Egron, and are on their way to The Ruins of Badun Keep to try and figure out where to go next on the journey. On the journey, they passed through a forest of trees that looked to be getting sickly, some rotting. Three pixies began to toy with them before becoming slightly more hostile as the travelers passed farther through the forest.
After a poor attempt at combat, the party’s Druid, Cuntpunch McGee, having a special connection with woodland creatures, managed to communicate with the pixies because sometimes actually talking to something is better than trying to start fighting with it out of the blue. Wink wink.
The Pixies revealed that ever since a strange, hooded, & masked creature came through the forest and kidnapped their Elder Pixie & attacked the pixies in the forest, the forest began to grow sick, and the pixies themselves began to get sick, as well.
After promising to help the Pixies and find the hooded figure, they were allowed to pass through the forest and continue on the the Ruins of Badun Keep.
At Badun Keep, the group came across a group of 5 Goblins, led by Caverntounge, the group also included Darkcleaver and Dreadgibbler, two twin goblins who are horrid at sneaking, & Stinkcutter & Toothshred, the group’s main thieves. Caverntounge tasked the adventurers with getting into the nearby dungeon to retrieve a special object for the goblins within, that they were too scared to go get themselves. The group was promised they could keep whatever else they found.
The group went into the Dungeon and found, in the first room, 3 giant poisonous snakes which they promptly defeated & skinned. Because, why not?
The group were able to open up an unsecure chest that they found in the room and found a few Potions of Greater Healing, a dungeon map (pictured below), and a small rock giving off a lot of arcane energy. Having deciphered that this is what the Goblins were looking for, they returned the stone to the Goblins, Aliaga Silentreed got her gold coins back that she had discovered stolen, and the party spent the night in the ruins of Badun Keep, to prepare to go adventuring in the mostly undiscovered cave again in the morning….
