Rise of the Runelords

Local Heroes

Chapter I Part II

After showing Aldern a thing or two about boar hunting in the Tickwood forest, great feast was had at the Rusty Dragon- but not without disruption. Lonjiku Kaijitsu crashed the party, insulting the adventurers while demanding his daughter, Ameiko, leave with him at once. Gabriel seemed to calm Lonjiku down well enough after Ameiko humiliated him with a ladle full of soup. 

The next morning, some chaos ensued as Amele Barett, a Sandpoint local, ran into the streets crying for help dragging her poor, bitten son behind. Goblins. Pam and Gerald were up to the job. After pulling out the lifeless body of Amele's unfortunate husband, the Goblin in question leaped from his tiny hole in the boy's closet and quickly met his demise.

Later that day, the town sheriff Hemlock approached the party to consult on some strange happenings in the town cemetery. Apparently somebody had opened the tomb that contains the remains of former high priests. Upon investigation, a group of reanimated skeletons engaged the party and nearly took the life of Gerald! Fortunately, everyone made it out alive…but there was certainly some foul play in there, as a robe of bones was found in the tomb. What is more disturbing, though, is not what was found..but what was missing- the remains of the recently passed high priest, Ezakien.

Due to the disturbing events that have surrounded the town in the days of late, Sheriff Hemlock believes it is best if the adventurers stick around in town for awhile to give some assurance to the folk that trouble will be dealt with. That being said, there appears to be a lot of activity among the goblin tribes in the area, according the Sandpoint's finest scout, Shalelu Andosana. Shalelu made a surprise visit to Sandpoint to inform the mayor and sheriff about recent goblin attacks that have occurred elsewhere and with multiple tribes working together. It seems someone has organized the goblins for their bidding. 

As if all of this wasn't insane enough, the next morning Bethan Corwin, a barmaid at the Rusty Dragon, reported Ameiko missing! An ominous note from her estranged brother was all the evidence found. Since Sheriff Hemlock has gone out of town to recruit more guard against the rising goblin attacks, it is up to the party to head over to the Sandpoint Glassworks and figure out what exactly happened to Ameiko.

Pam, Gerald, and Iskaral each earn 135xp for dealing with the skeletons!
Pam and Gerald earn an additional 65xp for taking care of the closet goblin!
Gabriel earns 100xp for consoling Amele and her family in the cathedral!
Pam, Gerald, Iskaral, and Gabriel earn 400xp for sticking up for Ameiko against her father!
