Temperance Foundling. A loud half-orc paladin.
Sterrin Blackhand. A human rogue and far traveler.
Valandrien Dezlentyr. A half-elven sorcerer from Waterdeep.
On the road to Ironmaster, our heroes had a long, boring walk. Eventually they found a menhir and did not fondle it. They shared tea with five dwarves, a couple of whom went into town to notify the dwarven city council that weirdos were waiting to talk with them.
Gwert Brighthelm, Augrek’s sister, arrived and spoke with the group. He said he would take Augrek’s “Send Help” message to the city council. That was as good as the heroes could get. They rested and continued northeast to patrol the dale.
They got to the nearest ford. It was fordy. They continued on to the stone bridge. The ramp up to the bridge was gone, which made taking the mules nigh-impossible. So they trekked back to the ford and crossed there.
Not too far from the river, it began to snow. The group set up camp and got warm and dry.
Three yetis attacked FOR NO GOOD REASON! They nearly killed Valandrien twice. It was a bloody mess.
The next day the group fended off the unwanted advances of 2 frost giants. They continued on and found a cold campsite obviously used by giants.
Eventually, they met up with four humans from Korusk. There was much talking and the humans directed the heroes toward another clump of giants. The group ambushed three giants and barely survived again. But they added more heads to their smelly collection, bringing the grand total up to 6433 heads. At 200 gp per head, the heroes will be rich!
After many unpleasant days, the heroes returned to Bryn Shandar. The sheriff rewarded their efforts with titles “Defenders of Bryn Shandar.” This entitled them to a free french fry with the purchase of any steak and “most expensive wine bottle” at the local inn. Whoop-de-do!
During an expensive dinner (with free french fry/limited to one per group) two northern barbarians, Sorelissa Zandra and Naeremos One-Arm, spoke of hunting Worvil Forkbeard. He was allegedly somewhere between Bryn Shandar (YOU ARE HERE) and Mirabar (WAY OUT OF OUR WAY).
The group decided to go southwest to Neverwinter to sell the heads and meet up with the agent of the Gauntlet Temperance had learned of. From there, the plan was to continue to Waterdeep and find Artis Cimber and learn about the Ring of Winter.
