The Storms Passing

The Lay of Mortelis

Foaldeath exacts his revenge
A halfling arrives in town with shady purpose.
A few days pass without event.
Alarms are raised, a great host gathers without. Its intent is to sack Stromdorf.
Its leader, Foaldeath. Amongst his allies, the banner of the Four Horned Beast.
A desperate defense for a frantic flight
The town is evacuated.
A stalwart few remain to allow the hastily beat retreat of the rest.
Foaldeath is wounded, but not killed.
A golden armoured warrior strides the battlements. Stichhelm is reborn,
The survivors, job complete, surrender the battlefield.
Stromdorf is left to the mercy of the Beastmen.
Refugees on the road
Swift travel to neighbouring town.
The Charity of Strangers
Soldiers are sent to assess the fate of Stromdorf. Refugeeā€™s are found places to stay.
Solla stays behind
The mystic in training sees her fate is to remain with the innkeep.
Stromdorf revisited, the Holtz child taken
Our heroes return to hear various tales of what was witnessed within the town. The Beastmen looted and burned but one survivor saw the beastman leader holding a young girl aloft as they ramapged throguht he streets. The young girl was the Holtz clans youngest daughter.
Striking south after the Four horned beast
With vengeance and justice in their hearts the heroes forge onwards in pursuit of the receding beastmen.
Outlying farms are razed, Flea survives the attacks once more and refuses to leave Roberts side.
The trail leads into the mountains
The weather grows colder as the days pass and the mountains draw nearer. Soon the weather will prevent travel entirely.
Wolves stalking the passes
A snow clogged pass. A mighty pack of wolves confronts our heroes.
A convenient defense, a Mysterious cave
They seek protection in a mysterious nearby cave.
Illusions in the dark
The cave is more than it first appears. Undead patrol its halls. Weakness is infliced upon one of the number. Illusions and subterfuge abound.
Lord of Wolves
The master of the pack is discovered. He is put to the swod while changing from man to beast. His quarters show signs of sacrifice and adherence to powers most foul.
A maiden fair, trussed up for rescue
A fair wood elf maiden, Larithiriel Oakshadow, is found. Her story tragic and her rescue fortuitous.
Thwarted by winter
The path through the mountains is impassable. The tracks of the beastmen obscured by snow. Our heroes turn back and set to the task of escorting Larithiriel Oakshadow to Averheim.
A return to the lands of men
Winter grips the land as the group treks out of the mountains and onwards to civilisation once more.
