The session started off with our party acquiring a new member by the name of Breunor, a Dwarven fighter who is a cousin of Thair Coalstriker from Mithrill Hall, previously hired to help deal with the “Kobald issue”. The party decided to leave investigating Bairwin until after they had dealt with the Kobalds and collecting their fee. Shortly after the party set out they were waylaid by said “Kobald problem”. The party had their first taste of having magic hurled at them and did not seem to enjoy it. Breunor had some difficulty adjusting to the adventuring lifestyle and had Garrick questioning this recent addition and the prospect of splitting his cut with him. After dispatching the creatures the party discovered a holy symbol of Shar around the Wyrmpriest’s neck. A debate ensued on whether to return to town and rest or push on. It was decided that they should push on as it might be embarrassing having to return to town so shortly after leaving. The party tracked the Kobolds’ to their lair and after a hard pressed fight where both Breunor and Grimlock went down; they defeated all comers including the mighty Iron Tooth. After searching the lair the party discovered a note indicating the presence of a spy in Winterhaven and the cults’ mad plan to open a rift and free “Shadraxil”. They also had a name “Kalarel”. They also came across a crossbow that they had traded to Bairwin back in Winterhaven confirming their suspicions of the man.
After returning triumphantly to Winterhaven and throwing the head of Iron Tooth at Lord Padraig’s feet, they collected their reward and much to Lord Padraig’s dismay extorted more money from him to deal with the cult. Khaine sought out the scholarly aid of Valthurn to learn more of cults devoted to Shar and the history of the destroyed keep, as well as any information of Teifling history. Garrick attempted to spy on Bairwin. After getting cold feet Garrick decided to return to the Inn and it was decided that they would directly confront Bairwin with the evidence from the Kobald Lair. After confronting Bairwin an epic battle commenced in his hidden temple dedicated to Shar with the party striking a mighty blow for the forces of good.
The party awaits any information Valthurn can provide while they formulate their next move……..
