MJ Realms: Heroes of Faerûn

Heros return
a town in need of help

Upon our return there was no parade, no welcome back party and no showering with gifts. But when we got to the pub we were given a feast and some free ale, this is the adventures life I’ve been looking for. We found the old wizard Curuvar in the tavern, he was very intoxicated. After our meal we decided to take the old drunk back to his place, the owner was going to have him thrown into the streets. When we arrived at Curavar’s house he suddenly was sober and quick to tell us that he has new respect for our group. He told us of two problems going on in this town. First is the missing children around the town, second is a gang demanding “protection” fees from local businesses. I am suspect to think that these problems are related. We went back to the tavern and have decided to help the people of Loudwater. After some discussion we formed a plan. Knowing that the missing children is the more severe problem and should require attention first, we thought that the townsfolk would be more eager to speak with us if they knew we were the ones who stopped the new crime syndicate. We made plans to stay at the tavern while in town giving the appearance to find regular jobs. We have knowledge of two businesses not willing to pay the fees, the general store owner, Kalla and the apothecary owner, Brocha. As well we found the name of one who used to associate with the syndicate, Kyos. As we investigated with these people we found that only Kalla would give us any information and was willing to let me pose as a stock person in her store to find information. We had information that some of the city guard was on the take, we had Rynox put his ears as well as his muscles to work, and he is to help the city guards rebuild the wall. Ifrix spoke with Brocha, we received no information from this. Erdan was posing as dog in the city in order to observe and eavesdrop if the opportunity arose. Travok is keeping his ears open and earning us a discount on the room at the tavern by washing the dishes there. Erdan and Ifrix made a plan to speak with Kyos while I speak with Kalla at the shop to find out what information we can. Kalla has offered us goods in exchange for our services. Ifrix and Erdan avoided a fight in a bad part of town while Kyos avoided giving up any useful information. Kalla informed us that Narrows comes around on Wednesdays to collect fees. Our plan is to provoke him enough that he will leave and then we can follow him to see where he leads. After some early slip ups in our plan to follow we tracked him back to a rough looking part of town, where he entered a secure door. We will meet with Curavar to exchange information.

into the pits - the way Baun saw it

Well, I jumped into this pit to find more goblins attempting to end our lives. Not today. I quickly went to action while the others climbed down the rope. I made it clear that we were a force not to be messed with. I was quick to deal with a few foes while Ifrix made a ball of fire and rolled it around the room, funny how some enemies ran towards it rather than fight me. Rynox in true paladin form chased the goblins to one end of the room almost falling into one of their traps, a pit of wild and hungry dogs. If I was a kind person, I would have thrown the dead goblins down there, but I’m not that mean to dogs. After some looking around we found a magic disc most likely for teleportation and what appears to be the proper entrance. We found a hallway that lead down towards some cells and some more action. As Zombies came to attack Ifrix closed the port cullies with some magic. We finally found good use for the Paladin using him as a door while we fought our way into the next room, wouldn’t you know it, more goblins. After disposing to these foes quick and easily we set out down the hallway again. We came into a large room with many enemies; several spear chucker’s, a few fighters and one very good shaman. We fought very hard through this battle and when it was done we were tired and thirsty. We discovered another teleport pad and a well. We refilled our water and found a secluded room and made camp for the night. After we awoke it was time to find out where these stairs lead. Down we went, the stairs went on for a while and once at the bottom we found a hallway. There seemed to be a lack of goblins in these parts. At the end of the hallway was a medium sized room, looked to be a tomb of some sort, later to be the ogre king’s resting place. We made our way into the room and found a goblin shaman muttering. Ifrix chuckled when he realized that the words he was saying meant nothing. After exchanging some words with this goblin I decided to shut him up. This foe was not to be taken lightly, he opened the attack with a fire strike, we opened a can of whoop-ass. He was using his magic to weaken our ability to hit with weapons, Ifrix was having some success with magic. Rynox was nearing death when I felt the overwhelming urge to protect everything and anything, as the goblin would attempt an attack I was quick to counter, his fortitude was no match for my flail. After the battle we made our way back to the town of Loudwater, really hoping we get some recognition for this, I like free ale.

Ifrix's Adventures - Day 1

After travelling through the woods with Baun we came upon the town of Loudwater, not sure why it’s called Loudwater as the river is quiet. We stopped for some food/drink and had discussed the possibilities of setting out for Neverwinter in search of adventure. Full from drink and a passable goat stew adventure it seems found us.

While leaving the tavern an explosion knocked us both to the ground. I don’t frighten easily but the sight of a goliath falling towards me was enough to make me jump about three feet out of the way before hitting the ground myself. When the dust settled there were Goblin minions everywhere with a few heavy hitters scattered across the square. We saw the first goblin take out a town’s person and with a quick nod to Baun we were in the fight. Before I could set them ablaze with my magic missile out of the corner of my eye a Paladin leapt into the fray with a fire I had not seen since the feywild. As the goblins headed towards a curiosity’s shop two others joined the fight, a druid and dwarf battle priest. We made quick work of the invading force and learnt that the goblins were after some totem that was to help resurrect a dead Ogre King. This was just the type of adventure Baun and I were Looking for.

The Paladin’s name was Rynox, a bit forward but steady in both action and cause. The druid’s was named Erdan who had flown to the top of the wall during the battle and rained death upon the unsuspecting goblin minions. I had taken some serious blows from a goblin warrior and it was Travok the dwarf battle cleric who came to my aid. Together we left the curiosity shop headed again for the tavern for some celebratory drinks and a chance to meet our new companions. The dwarf shopkeep had indicated that an old wizard (Curuvar) who often drank at the tavern could further give us clues as to what had just transpired and why. We shared little with the city guard as they proved inefficient and unsurprisingly late to respond to the battle which was now only a pile of corpses. It made me chuckle a bit to know that they would be cleaning up the mess while we enjoy some drinks at the tavern.

Once at the tavern we exchanged pleasantries with our new allies in battle when the most haggard of wizards I had ever seen burst in the tavern with the thirst of drink in his eye. Our party thought this a strange sight, could this be the great wizard that the dwarf shopkeeper had told us about with such reverence? We offered him a spot at our table with the offer of additional drink. He told us the purpose of the totem and with some forceful probing from the paladin eventually told us of what would become our next great adventure. Now off in search of the second totem and possibly the Ogre King with these new adventurers, Baun has done what he has done ever since I first met him, jumped right into trouble…
Guess I’ll grab my rope and catch up. Down we went to whatever the gods that are left have in store for us.
