David's Pathfinder Campaign

Episode 2 - Exploring Darkmoon Vale

With the use of the map provided the party made its way to the Elder Darkwood Tree. It’s cathedral of boughs dominated the clearing and dwarfed the surrounding trees. Briar quickly located a large quantity of the elder wood moss laurel needs for her potential cure. Just as Briar knelt to gather the moss however, a massive lizard like creature pounced from the nearest branches and attempted to entangle her. She deftly avoided the creature’s embrace and the party made quick work of the Tatzlwyrm, with Hrothgar making a massive blow that severed the creature’s upper and lower halves. Three bodies were found in the trees, containing some valuables.

Continuing deeper into the vale, the party then located Ulizmila’s seemingly abandoned hut. After kicking in the door, the party began to search Ulizmila’s scattered belongings for any sign of Rat’s tail root. In response to the disturbance, a large black cauldron sprang to life and attempted to swallow the nearest members of the group whole. Amidst the commotion, Daleton seemed to forget entirely about his new found magical powers, instead opting to thwack at the cauldron with his staff to no effect. The rest of the party managed to compose themselves with the aid of Taeryn’s inspiring (and catchy) melodies. After a few failed swings by Hrothgar and the cauldron, the party finally managed to smash the odd opponent into pieces. A further search of the hut revealed a good quantity of Rat’s tail root as well as a magical shrunken head.

Continuing on their way, the group chanced across a giant moorsnake. Wary of the threat the lethargic constrictor might pose if encountered during the night, our champion’s attacked. The snake and Hrothgar both took a chunk out of one another, but Daleton, remembering that he was indeed a wizard, released an explosive flash of power that knocked out the unfortunate reptile along with most of his companions. Taeryn decided to release the creature into the wild, and it slithered into the brush to nurse its wounds.

After another days travel, the party has arrived at the abandoned monastery known as Droskar’s Crucible. Little is known of the dwarves that lived here, but an inspection of one of the statue’s outside revealed an inscription that read “All praise to __” with the name having been scraped out of the stone.

Episode 1 - Falcon's Hollow

The party chatted with Ronaldo Leone around the camp fire. The first day of their journey they encountered 3 vagabond orcs, who were immediately attacked by Hrothgar. The party put the orcs down quickly, though Hrothgar and Solaire suffered serious wounds. They recovered the body of a traveler from Falcon’s Hollow (Flint).

Arriving and Falcon’s Hollow, the streets were oddly deserted and they discovered from the Tavern Owner that there was an outbreak of Black Scour Taint. He knew little about the disease but told them to talk to Laurel the herbalist. Daleton is dismayed to find that his grandchildren have the early symptoms of Black Scour Taint. After shoving their way through the crowd outside Laurel’s Roots and Remedies, they speak with Laurel and she eventually tells them that there is a recipe in her grandmother’s spell book that may be of use. She needs 3 ingredients in order to make it though:
1. Elderwood Moss – found only on the oldest tree in the forest
2. Rats Tail Root – perhaps the old witch in the forest has some?
3. Ironbloom Mushrooms – grow in amongst iron, most likely found in the old dwarves ruins North of the lake

Laurel, Ronaldo and one of the lumber camp workers provide direction to the locations of the ingredients. The party makes their way into the forest, past the lumber camp. During the first night of their journey, a winged shape is spotted in the sky, but the party is undisturbed.

The Scene

The wealthy lumber merchant, Ronaldo LeonĂ©, has hired you to guard his caravan of lumber wagons. The caravan is headed for Falcon’s Hollow to pick up a shipment of rare dark wood, found only in the the forests surrounding Falcon’s Hollow. Rumours of travellers and entire caravans going missing in the area around Falcon’s Hollow have motivated Ronaldo to hire on any help he can get in order to get to and from Falcon’s Hollow safely.

We will start our session with the party making camp the first night of their travels (an ideal time for party members to get to know one another and why they signed on with Ronaldo).
