2011 - Campaign Notes Part 1

Murder in the Deep!
posted Jun 18, 2011 8:57 PM
Rumors flood in that the miners of Stoutham have uncovered a uncertain evil deep in the mine shafts of the Dread Mountains. Reports say that the King of Stoutham Flargen Alyeer is requesting aid from his newly founded ally, King Finn Dally. With the pressure of war on the door step of King Finn Dally, he will no doubt ask for the church of St. Cuthbert to handle this civic matter. Looks as if the acting priest Kadrin Brewhammer will be saddling up to answer yet another call of the Land of Valusia.

War declared in Valusia
posted Jun 8, 2011 9:25 AM
War is upon the lands of Valusia, but not in the way you may think. Everyone knows the long going feud between the human horsemen of King Argorn, Natives of Gromshold vs the dwarven miners of Stoutham. The feud involves the ownership of the quickly developing city of King’s Port. For a long time this feud has been brewing, two against one we all knew that it would only be a short time before war broke out. Knowing also that the outlook and outcome did not look hopeful for the dwarven miners. But a recent development has swayed the scales of war in a big way. King Finn Dally, a fairly new king to the region and always popular figure has placed his piece on the board. Right beside the dwarven miners of Stoutham, becoming allies with the dwarf King Fargen Alyeer. Little is known what forces King Finn Dally brings to the table, but one thing is for sure. We all know what side the mighty heroes of Valusia will be on. This will definitely pose a problem for the lords of Aragorn and Gromshold.

Whats that smell?!

Gryphon Inn was closed down for several days, as reports flooded in about an unusual rat problem. When questioned, Boris Gryphon stated that bad plumbing was to blame. To make matters worse, his son was bitten by one of these hideous rats and has come down with the deadly Filth Fever. Boris, although concerned for his family, did reassure that the problem would soon be solved as he has requested the presence of Kadrin Brewhammer newly appointed Priest of St. Cuthbert and currently servicing the area of Valusia.

What the ???
posted Jun 8, 2011 8:40 AM [ updated Jun 8, 2011 8:48 AM ]
Reports flooded in as a unkown act of magical proportion took place several days ago. A town south of Helm’s Deep, near the Wild Jungle suddenly appeared out of nowhere. To make matters even worse, reports also stated that the town was populated by hundreds of undead creatures. A sight like this has not been seen since before the evil was pushed out and the great wall created. And with our main heroes of Valusia away on a quest north of the great wall, the weight of this problem relies solely on the shoulders of Kadrin Brewhammer acting priest of St. Cuthbert in the stead of High Priest Dar Day Drinn. As you read this, Priest Brewhammer is being dispatched to vanquish this new evil.

Hero rescued!
posted Jun 28, 2011 12:54 PM
You might remember that Kadrin Brewhammer priest of St. Cuthbert delved into the mines of Stoutham to root out the cause of the Dwarven miners death. You might also have thought, that we hear at Regional News have not reported any update of Kadrin’s progress. That’s because there was none until now. The newly arrived priest had BEEN CAPTURED! After reaching the shallows of the Dread Mountains Underdark Kadrin was captured by a small band of Drow. His traveling Goblin companion Prixxy, former member of the Black Spear Tribe emerged several days before informing the Dwarven King Flargin Alyeer that they were ambushed and Kadrin captured. Quick to answer the call and there on official business was Lord Gandro and newly appointed Knight of the Crown, Sir Talrin Avatar. A day later Kadrin,Prixxy and Sir Talrin Avatar emerged, neither Kadrin nor Prixxy wished to comment on the happenings down below. Lord Gandro was not reported being seen leaving at anytime. It is reported that both adventurers returned to Helm’s Deep for some much need rest and relaxation. Conflicted rumors came in regarding the matter. One that the problem the Dwarven miners had was fixed. Two, that Lord Gandro Stormbow and Aldor the former monk of St. Cuthbert were seen gearing up heading back into the mines of Dread Mountains. We will keep you updated as any news comes in regarding this matter.

Several cities celebrated as the battle has come to a end, with King Finn Dally and King Flargen Alyeer standing victorious. The battle was kicked off by a King’s challenge initiated between King Aragorn and King Finn Dally as they placed there best champions against eachother. Valdric the Divine fought with great honor and although badly wounded and almost beaten managed to kill the Knight Commander of the Order of the Sword. Although King Finn Dally’s forces were outnumbered bystanders stated that a battle of this scale has not been seen in Valusia for a long time. More impressive was there stories of how Malzain Loreweaver ( aka Minx ) acting High Wizard is said to have slew thousands with his extraordinary performance of magical ability. Although many died for this cause on both sides, it was the armies of King Finn Dally, Dwarven King Flargen Alyeer and the heroes of Valusia who stood victorious. Little is known if this battle will be the end to the war. Ceremonies will be held all week honoring the dead outside of the dwarven city of Stoutham. King Finn Dally also announced a vigil will be erected in honor of the fallen, in addition a festival will be held at his castle. All are welcome to attend.

Excerpt: Poem of King Finn Dally

The King of Valusia
Within these walls
I sit upon my throne,
Within these walls
I feel no warmth,
A child of the wood,
I long for sun
And grass beneath my feet.
Yet, I rule these people
Responsibility and a curse,
Perhaps when I’m done
I’ll return to the earth.

Castle Grimm cleaned out!

Keldric Stonebeard Prince of the Dwarven throne to the North has conquered the dreadful Castle Grimm North of the Eastern Wall.

It was reported from the Kingdom of Findal that reports came in that Keldric Stonebeard had purged the evil from Castle Grimm, which lay in The Great Swamp of Rethild.

In addition, Keldric discovered the Tomb of Castle Grimm after receiving deciphering of ancient archaic writings found on a key from the Academy of Magic. Albion Atenius Faunshroud was said to be the one to decipher the Arcane writing. The writing lead Keldric to the Tomb of Castle Grimm, and warned of a plot to raise a Lich King and undead army to march on the Land of Valusia.

Keldric then called upon Kadrin Brewhammer, Cleric of the Castle Findal to assist in the venture deep into the Tomb of Castle Grimm which lay deep inside the Dread Mountains.

Days later they emerged victorious, said to have put an end to the evil plot to invade Valusia and cleansed the land of all evil and necromancy.

King Finn Dally stated that further information would be provided at the Kings Court Press Conference at Kings Port within the week.

Heroes venture north of the West Wall Keep! Jungles of Chult - Part 1

King Finn Dally dispatched Servants of the Crown to track down the scouts of the Knights of the Watch that did not return from a routine patrol north of the wall. Briefed by Sir Talrin Avatar, the adventurers included Albion Atenius Faunshroud, Prixxy Kneebiter, and Daran Stormbow.

Meeting up with Sir Avatar to get information to arm themselves in their service to the king. They were informed of mysterious rose bushes that seem to come alive. They went along through the plains and jungle meeting spiders, snakes, and other creatures in their travels before coming upon a group of standing stones being used by the sprites as a base. These standing stones were a druidic site of power, once used by the worshipers of Allanon. The site was now home to the Rosewood Thorn Clan. The heroes ventured into the underground cave clearing it room by room.

However the leader of the sprites, a sprite calling himself The King of Roses was to much for them. Daran heroically put himself at risk to save Albion and they retreated through a hidden passage. Their work is unfinished, but they gathered considerable information. They discovered a plot to poison the keep and relayed the information and camped long enough to regain their strength for a second assault.

-Reference “Castle Grimm cleared out!” post.
Keldric Stonebeard and Kadrin Brewhammer emerge victorious from The Great Swamp and Castle Grimm. Having put an end to the evil plot to raise the former King of Castle Grimm as Lich and lead and undead army on an invasion of Valusia.

In addition Keldric and Kadrin rescued 13 captives from the country of Dambrath. A necromancer by the name of Tamaris was kidnapping the locals to assist in massing an army of undead. Turning living into undead as well as resurrecting already dead from graveyards in the area. Tamaris also possessed a Book of Dead Speech, entries of which have been deciphered by the Academy of Magic. These writing told of the failure of the undead army and the calling upon the Gnoll tribe from the country of Dambrath to serve as the invasion army.

With that, Keldric and Kadrin headed east to Dambrath to return the captives to there home and meet the Gnoll army head on and stop any invasion attempt.
