Twilight of the Three Kingdoms

Into the dark
Wherein our heroes discover hints of what is to come.

Our heroes, hidden in the brush around the mysteriously abandoned dig site and further shielded from view by the swirling snow of the storm as well as fading daylight, watch as a group of goblins in regalia of the Coming Chaos burst through the trees. At their head is a fierce goblin astride a wolf. He makes directly for the location of the trapped corpse as his warband continues to pour out of the trees.

Taking in the scene, the goblins notice Kyean and Nioi just as the heroes move to attack. The battle is fierce, as the party is split in two. Nioi, tangled in the chains for a harpoon wielded by one of the goblins, fights on at great disadvantage. Meanwhile, Mikal and Aukan tangle with some of the lesser goblins, but in the heat of the battle, a bruiser of a bugbear manages to get the drop on Aukan, strangling him from behind.

Eventually, the goblins are defeated, but not before the wolf-mounted leader managed to beat a hasty retreat. After a short rest to bind their wounds and catch their breath, they followed the trail left by the panicked goblin, arriving at a nearby ruin. It showed signs of use but was strangely abandoned.

A Long Delayed Departure
Wherein ours heroes depart Duntil.

In the aftermath of the events on Torin 13, Kyean pressed on with preparations for the journey to the dig. A few days passed, during which the party spent time and money gathering their belongings and outfitting themselves, as well as getting to know Mikal, their new and unlikely companion. A couple of days later, on Torin 16, the party departed on the road west with their caravan in tow.

After a few hours on the road, as they got deeper into the forest, a winter storm blew in from the mountains, wreaking havoc on the dirt path they were following towards the dig site. Despite valiant efforts and the application of their remarkable strength, the weather bested them and they were delayed when one of the wagons ended up dug deep into the mud. They were attacked by some wildlife, but fought it off with skill before the storm could get much worse.

In the aftermath of the battle, with the wagon dug out, they chose to continue to the dig site, which was not very much further, even in the severe weather. They arrived around dusk, the snow opening it’s white curtains enough for them to see the dig site, eerily abandoned. In the center of the primary dig they found a body, seemingly mutilated by the Coming Chaos. The snow strangely had not accumulated on the corpse, and Mikal suspected it was a trap. Before anything could be done, Aukan approached it and rolled it over with his foot, in the process triggering the trap, altering someone or something in the process. The corpse, seeming animated by an external force, wrapped its arms around Aukan and began clawing at him. They dealt with it swiftly, and with the help of C’Tiel it was revealed that a contingent of cult members was moving their way swiftly. With seconds to spare the party concealed themselves, awaiting their next opponents, and perhaps answers as to the state of the abandoned site.

Welcome to your Adventure Log!
A blog for your campaign

Every campaign gets an Adventure Log, a blog for your adventures!

While the wiki is great for organizing your campaign world, it’s not the best way to chronicle your adventures. For that purpose, you need a blog!

The Adventure Log will allow you to chronologically order the happenings of your campaign. It serves as the record of what has passed. After each gaming session, come to the Adventure Log and write up what happened. In time, it will grow into a great story!

Best of all, each Adventure Log post is also a wiki page! You can link back and forth with your wiki, characters, and so forth as you wish.

One final tip: Before you jump in and try to write up the entire history for your campaign, take a deep breath. Rather than spending days writing and getting exhausted, I would suggest writing a quick “Story So Far” with only a summary. Then, get back to gaming! Grow your Adventure Log over time, rather than all at once.
