Time is running out.
Macross could see the signs. He looked at the normal places that the beggars would have been working and noticed there weren’t as many as there should have been. But what was truly telling was the lack of familiar faces. These guys were all new or junior guildsmen. Bad sign. When the senior guildsmen are laying low something was in the making and it could not be positive for the cause. Shit!

The plan had been to go over the wall into the docks and find Fuliarro, but it was starting to look like a one way trip out of the city until things cooled off. Maybe even a change to get out sooner than planned. I feel the trap closing and only a fool would stay to watch his own death.

The zone is Hot.
I knew better than to get angry with Baldomero about attracting attention to the cause. He was just doing what he felt was needed. But it was bad joss or fortune to give up so much anonymity when it could be avoided. Especially when it was clear that there were forces in action more powerful than we could deal with ourselves.

Spiders don’t flourish during Fireseek, and certainly not in such large quantities in an alleyway. It is a sign of danger we need to heed. The guard is going to be seething at the insult and loss of face from the incident. The Spider Queen and her minions are on the move and the zone is Hot. We need to get out and let their wrath fall upon the stone walls of the city. We need to get out!

Episode 006: Greenest in Flames
Campaign Date: Eleasis 29-Marpenoth 26, 1489 DR
Adventure Date: Saturday, September 15, 2018

Episode Recap:
The heroes arrived in Baldur’s Gate and said farewell to Keelin, Gier and their employer for the past 49 days, Quinn, who gladly paid them for their service. The companions celebrated Balamin’s 11th birthday with a feast generously paid for by Delg. During the celebration, Baltrex met a merchant who mentioned that many small communities to the south and east of Baldur’s Gate had recently been raided by the Cult of the Dragon; each picked clean of their valuables.

The adventurers left Baldur’s Gate and set out for the town of Greenest. Late in the evening on the 26th of Marpenoth, they found Greenest under attack by cultists, mercenaries, kobolds and a blue dragon! The heroes rushed into the besieged town and headed toward a stronghold situated atop a small hill near the center of town. On their way, the companions came upon a young family pursued by a pack of bloodthirsty kobolds. The adventurers dispatched the reptilian creatures, rescued the family and then made their way to the garrison.

Inside the fortress, the heroes met a pair of individuals in charge of Greenest; Governor Nighthill and the dwarven castellan named Escobert the Red. They were shocked by the sudden attack and desperately sought to understand why. The companions, accompanied by the governor and castellan, surveyed the town from atop the keep and noticed a stately female dressed in purple robes overseeing the attack. She was accompanied by a half-blue dragon warrior and a dozen or more well-armored kobolds.

Governor Nighthill observed an enemy force bearing down on the temple to Chauntea and begged the adventurers to help. The keep was surrounded but Escobert recalled an old, unused tunnel beneath the fortress that led to a stream to the southeast. The heroes used this tunnel to exit the stronghold and make their way to the temple where they battled cultists and kobolds attempting to burn it down.

Episode Highlights:
  • While in Baldur’s Gate, Baltrex wrote a note to Amara inquiring if the bandit showed up. He paid a caravan guard heading north to Neverwinter 5 gp to deliver it.
  • Balamin spent a few days at a shrine to Bahamut in Baldur’s Gate. While there he learned that a month ago, a small group of monks led by a half-elf named Leosin Erlanthar was in Baldur’s Gate asking questions regarding dragon cults.

NPCs Introduced:
  • Governor Tarbaw Nighthill (early 60’s human male): Governs Greenest.
  • Castellan Escobert the Red (middle aged shield dwarf male with knotted, tangled, bright red hair): Master of the keep.

PC Notes:
  • None

A chance encounter...
Fireseek 22
You all join up after Baldomero's battle with the Orc Sargent. Slipping through the corridors. To the left, in a corner between two houses, Macross spots an abnormal mass of thick spider webs. He looks closer and it appears that it is swarming with black widow spiders. Pointing this out to the group, everyone continues forward, carefully avoiding the find.

You turn the corner into a narrow alley after leaving the peculiar webs and see a lonely man leaning on a crooked staff. He wears a crumbled brimmed hat.
"My friends. I beg of you to leave this city. This is a bad time and will only get deadlier as the night approaches."
He peers at you, tilting his head.
"Seek the 6th Cairn." He hands you a crumbled piece of paper.
You turn your head to the paper, and like that he is gone...
Above where he stood, on a rooftop, is a filthy raven, watching you, tilting his head back and forth.

Epic × 2!
But wait! It gets even better!
I just got handed a copper piece by the Beggar Captain. He says, “I feel sorry for you, man!”

I’m getting shit from the Beggar Captain because he thinks I’ve gotten an awful assignment from the Scarlet Guild. A joke at my expense. I will be hearing about this forever......
