Into the Woods

The Tale of Three Adventurers
Our Story Begins...

Warm and bright was the afternoon. Not a care in the world for our three adventurers besides what the rest of the day had in store for them – little did they know what was really going to become of their evening.

Our heroes, Aliaga, Darth, and Cuntpunch were chillin’ out. One could say they were maxin’. Potentially even relaxin’, regardless, they were all cool. When suddenly to each of them a cloaked figure appeared and gave each of them a letter instructing them to attend the Crossed Hammers tavern in Talea’s capital, Beowick. Darth and Cuntpunch went into the city happily, and Aliaga, reluctantly, and upon entering the Crossed Hammers encountered each other, and the renowned bartender, Baranna Kush.

At the end of the bar sat a cloaked figure. Upon inspection, much question, and poking of the figure, it was revealed that it was simply a common broom placed there to trick visitors of the bar, by some of the humans, gnomes, elves, and dwarves playing darts in a corner of the bar.

They then turned their attention to another interesting looking figure sitting inside the bar. As they gathered around the table, the figure began to speak to the group, revealing himself to be an assistant to Mayor Amerus. The unknown assistant revealed that a Drow woman named Lyra lives inside the castle. Lyra has the ability to see into the future, and that she saw our three heroes heading up a fight against a dragon attack on Beowick. The cloaked figure promised the heroes untold honor and glory from destroying the dragon, as well as as much of the dragon’s treasure as they want.

The figure also told them that in order to prepare for this battle, they need to travel to the mountain city of Wicot, where they will find the Elder Wizard Estelle, who will give them knowledge and abilities to properly defeat the dragon.

After agreeing to going on the journey, the heroes went to the local market to pick up weapons and such, where they encounter Bowie, the local wizard who provides cheaply made magic items for the town. After spending some time in the market, the group spent the night in Aliaga’s tree mansion, before taking off on their journey.

On the way to the second city, Egron, the group stopped for a rest. Cuntpunch found some berries and pipeweed and proceeded to smoke some, then the group encountered a Bugbear and while attempting to defeat it, Darth was knocked unconscious. After defeating the Bugbear, they brought Darth’s unconscious body to Egron where they encountered the human cleric Janet, who was able to heal Darth. They also met one of Baranna Kush’s sisters, Banana Kush. After spending the night in Egron, the travelers left the city and headed on to the next stop on the journey, The Ruins of Badun Keep.

Halfway down the trail, the group encountered and defeated a Dryad, managing to kill it while it was flying in and out of trees. Darth dealt the finishing blow while it was inside of a tree, knocking the tree over and the Dryad with it. This is where the first chapter of our heroes’ story ends.

The Goblins, The Pixies, & The Dungeon

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….
