After the fight aboard the transport ship to the town of Lehygh, Diplomat Lance Wood asked the group to escort him to the city of Griffonford so he could complete his business with Duke Christopher Rosales.
After their rather cold greeting from Commander Dante McDouglas and after they had turned in their weapons (as per city law), the party arrived an the Red Dragon Inn. Each person reserved a separate room and met downstairs to have a meal and get to know one another. Right off the bat, it seemed that Balkul and Veribellum did not get along, for they constantly butted heads and insulted each other.
Veribellum (Josh), the elven ranger, was asked by the Fighter’s Guild to accompany Marcos Teculux (a.k.a Spear Guy) on orders handed down from Duke Christopher Rosales. They were to go investigate strange happenings at the local ruins of Fort Legend, in the direction of the port-town Lehygh.
You have all returned the the welcoming atmosphere of the Red Dragon Inn after the day’s exploits, from searching for property to bringing law breakers to justice. The party shared a table while eating a full meal, afterwords the tired adventurers head up stairs, trading the warm inn main floor for a comfortable mattress and warm blanket.
Commander Dante McDouglas met with everyone as they ate breakfast and delivered a message straight from the Duke calling the adventurers to his castle to aid him by protecting a diplomat from assassination.
People around Griffonford are whispering of two ships that will be pulling into Lehigh in the coming week. Rumor has it that the Emperor has become irritated with all of the pirating, and secretly had two ships built to wipe them out once and for all. One is the largest ship to have been built to date, the other the most formidably armed of the Empire’s fleet.
After returning from business abroad, Kizmet, your friend in Waste Management, found his fortress commandeered by a troop of dark dwarves. As he has business in another town, he seeks your aid in this matter of inconvenience before his return to Griffonford.
Sprocket, the island’s Gnome City, has sent out a message to all cities. It appears that a gnome inventor had gone rogue and created something that was terrorizing the local lands. Shortly after the message got out, all communication was lost with the fortified port.
