episode 4

on the road

caravan_camp.jpg The group made way from the abandoned camp back to greenest where they stayed for the night. They then left the next morning following the trade road to Scornubel. Other than a run in with some gypses and a couple of hungry ogers the trip was easy going. Once in Scornubel they bought water passage to Eturel where they met up with their contacts Leosin and Ontharr Frume. The meeting takes place in a tavern called “A Pair of Black Antlers”. Ontharr is a broad-shouldered paladin proudly displaying the symbol of the Order of the Gauntlet on his chest. He is a jolly, loud fellow in much contrast to the slim humble monk. Frume’s squire shows the party to a private room where they discuss the cult of the dragon with a hand full of scholars and concerned leaders of the sword coast. The characters are also offered a chance to join the the Harpers or the Order of the Gauntlet. Thanks to the party the Harpers now know that the cult is amassing treasure and shipping it north. Where exactly this treasure is going and what the cult plans to do with it are the next two questions that need answering. The characters agree to travel to Baldur’s gate and get on the caravan traveling north with the cultist to get some answers. Frume has a contact in the city named Ackryn Selebon who is a trader that can get the party work on the caravan.
From Eutrel they made their way down river to Baldur’s gate. Before they reached their contact they seen a half dragon in a screened palanquin. They try to persue but loose it and burn down a building in an attempt to corner this individual who they know is of great importance to the cult. After they meet their contact ,Ackyn, they do some dealing to get onto a caravan leaving in a day with some of the suspected cultist wagons.
The fist couple days are uneventful until a noble with protection joins the caravan. He has starved and sickly horses and is abusive towards them. Kor questions the noble and things quickly escalate.
