Nightmares of Nerath

Siege of Bordrin’s Watch

How can we forget the suffering of our kin during the Age of Chains? How can we
set aside those ancient grudges when the risk of slavery is now greater than ever?
Fellow warriors, the orcs are upon us, marching once more to the beat of the giants’
drum. It falls to us to stop them—to hold fast no matter their numbers. If we falter,
we give into fear. It’s not just ourselves and our way of life that will suffer; all people
of the Elsir Vale will perish as well. War is upon us. Now is the time for men and
women of courage to stand up and defend those who cannot defend themselves.

The Shadow Rift of Umbraforge

“We are mercenaries, all of us, but only a precious few have honesty enough to admit it. Whether we sell ourselves for coin, for honor, or ideals, we all have a price whose continued payment leads us inevitably to our end. But when that end comes, will you admit to your balance sheet? Or will you lie when you claim that the blood on your hands was spilled for just cause, not simply your hunger for glory?”

Den of theDestroyer

“The armies that today march across the fields and mountains of the world will tomorrow be forgotten, as will we all. But do not fear the progress of history, nor give up in today’s fight, for our efforts are far from futile. Instead, prepare your sword and shield and stand against the tide that threatens to overwhelm our lands. For though you and I may be forgotten in the years to come, what we do today will echo through the ages and determine the fate of all those who follow in our footsteps.”

The Temple Between

“Our eyes are open,
our fists are closed.
Our walls are stone,
our shields are steel.
Our faces are many,
our soul is dwarf.
And thus is there no foe against whom Overlook cannotstand.”

It is an ancient Overlook proverb—some would even call it a prayer—and it’s about to be put to the ultimate test.

The adventurers are invited to a banquet in the Moonstair Great Hall by request of Baron Peranon via a letter to Mayor Kelana Dhoram. The Baron is visiting Moonstair to give the adventurers his blessings for having thwarted Skalmad’s plans to conquer the city.

The Investigation
The party investigate the kidnapping of Pethorn

The adventurers arrive at The Cloudwatch inn in Moonstair, after having been informed that the baron’s son, Pethorn had been kidnapped by orcs from his bedchambers.

Kerranin questions the guests and the halfling landlord, Cham and discovers that the kidnapping went unnoticed until Ambassador Kaidis alerted them. After coercing a reluctant cleaner into talking, the party also learns that the guard at the door entered the room willingly and was talking to someone inside the room.

Eardwulf's Ambush
Kaidis' bodyguard leads the party into a skeletal ambush.

Whilst the town guard searches for Ambassador Kaidis, under the direction of the party and Mayor Kelana Dhoram, the party are approached by Kaidis’ bodyguard, Eardwulf.

He informs the party that Kaidis’ seeks to speak with them, and that he cannot trust the Baron or Moonstair government.

The party cautiously follows Eardwulf towards the shopping district, despite Stan and Kalantari’s strong suspicions over his motives.

The Voyage Begins
The Party leave Moonstair aboard the Tiger's Claw

Following the ambush by Eardwulf, the party venture to Rualiss’ island to see if the wise Eladrin knows anything of the portal used for Pethorn‘s kidnapping, and the religious symbols seen on Eardwulf’s sword and the chest found aboard the Orc boat.



Rualiss believes that the portal has an exact copy, etched in blood, at the other end, and that it must be somewhere on the material plane. Sadly his knowledge of non-fey religion and history is insufficient to provide the party with any further information that may assist them.
