The Charter

Chasing down Svetlana’s wedding ring, the Charter headed south to the reputed home of the mites, an Old Sycamore towering over the hills of the western edge of the Kamelands. On the way there they stumbled across the den of a mated pair of kamadan, who stalked the Charter out of their hunting range. While scouting the den, Glain noticed a vein of gold in the cave wall, promising at a rich strike should anyone mine there.

The Charter headed southeast from the possible gold mine to the Old Sycamore, where they found an entrance into the cramped tunnels of the mites’ lair and freed the kobold Mikmek from his torture and captivity and fought the ferocious mite chieftan Grabbles and his mighty giant tick mount Tickleback.


Five Kings

Outfitted with one of Súrion’s magical map making boxes, the Five Kings headed south to hunt down Tuskgutter. Instead of finding the deadly boar, though, the adventurers stumbled across a shambling mound that nearly killed the magus Kai. After a close victory they discovered a patch of healing mushrooms and headed to the close-by Thorn River Camp to heal and rest.

While resting, a lost shifter girl stumbled into their camp and after hearing about the strange goings on back at her village, Levoca, they agreed to take her home through the strange and perilous forest.

Another warm, clear day.

The party woke at Oleg’s Trading Post after a peaceful night and traveled to the Applewood to investigate the thieves who had been raiding the Bunce farm. Their new fey friends Pearlie and Tigger led them to a tiny brownie village, where the Charter met a pair of brownies, Fran and Rool.

The Charter followed the trail of clues from the brownies to a talking owl, from the owl to a polluted stream where an ancient treant had taken root. After a great deal of effort, they woke the sleepy Finglas and convinced him to move out of the stream up onto the bank but promised in return to come back the next spring to find and care for the treant’s offspring.

On returning to Oleg’s Trading Post, the Charter discovered a new group of adventurers had moved into the Greenbelt. Unlike the Black Banners, the Five Kings were amenable to working with the Charter as they all worked to explore the wild Margreve and the surrounding region.

After a surprisingly good night’s sleep, the Charter, along with Byron and Yolan, made their way through the forest and back to Oleg’s Trading Post to check in and regroup. They found that Burke d’Magnon had started reinforcing the defenses around the Post, using the captured bandits for labor.

The Charter discovered that the Swordlords of Restov had sent forces to defend Oleg’s Trading Post in the form of a small unit of Bloodstone Swords. Led by Kesten Garess and his second, Dragan Tomislav, the 8 mercenaries should be a capable force, especially behind the Oleg’s tall, strong walls.

The Charter were alerted to thieves in the Applewood when they visited the Bunce poultry farm. While investigating, they discovered strange drawings of labyrinths and horned men in the wood. They also encountered a pair of mischievious fey, Pearlie the faerie dragon and Tigger the grig, who agreed to watch the farm overnight.

After a restless night in the forest, the party assaulted the Thorn River Camp. In spite of an ambush the party was able to dispatch most of the bandits, including the infamous Kressle.

The sole survivor, a foreigner by the name of Jiang Weisheng, quickly surrendered the bandits’ cache of loot and the pass phrase for the Stag Lord’s fort. Like the survivors of the ambush at Oleg’s Trading Post, Jian swore oath to the Charter in exchange for his life. Burke decided he would be of more use back at the Trading Post and took Jian and the loot north.

Jian proved a wealth of information. He gave Bronin a lead on her lost cousin, Yolan, who was apparently with an adventuring company calling themselves the Black Banners. By coincidence, the Black Banners were only a few hours ahead of the Charter, traveling west toward a druid grove.

Jian also implied that Svetlana’s ring was most likely with a tribe of mites living to the southeast.

The former bandit also suggested that the party might make a pretty penny trying to sell a case of absinthe to the Stag Lord, as he hadn’t received a shipment of his favorite liquor in quite some time.

From the camp the Charter members went on a wild chase through the forest, finding riddles on an ancient druid altar, making friends with a beautiful nixie, managing not to rile an irritable- and huge- badger, watching one of the Banners get killed by angry wasps, and tracking a treacherous goblin to the last piece of Narven’s Panoply.

All in all, a very busy day.

The charter ambushes Happs Bydon’s party of bandits at Oleg’s Trading Post, taking all five bandits alive. After an apparent religious conversion, Happs volunteered to serve Parin. Joelin, the only other conscious prisoner, underwent a trial that ended in the bandit being pronounced guilty by Burke and held over for Oleg’s promised soldiers to deal with.

Once the prisoners were secured the party ventured south to surprise Kressle and the remaining bandits plaguing Oleg’s and the Road.

During the trip south the party heard mysterious music coming from the forest. They wisely ignored it.

After a quiet night spent at Fort Serenko the party leaves early in the morning to make Oleg’s Trading Post after another long day of riding. Willas Gundarson catches them on the road and joins the group, telling them he is searching for a lost elven fort in the Narlmarches.

The party meets Oleg and Svetlana, the couple who run the trading post, and are informed a group of bandits will be coming in the morning to extort “taxes” in the name of the Stag Lord. The party decides to ambush the bandits in the morning.

Glain reveals that he was once a bandit himself.
