This was the first adventure and was a training ground for the party to explore the rules mechanics, basic combat strategy and just have fun killing mooks.
The heroic band of adventurers came upon the hamlet of Norfield and discovered that it had been the victim of multiple raids from highway robbers who’d been ambushing anyone traveling between the town and its neighbors.
Robert the Miller was the most recent victim and it was from him that the party learned the location of where he was robbed. Using the crime scene as a starting point the location of the hidden base inside a cave in the Brigindor Mountains was discovered.
After crossing a plank bridge which in truth was a misdirection trap that lead to some large spiders the heroes discovered that there was a fairly large sized contingent of Dark Elves.
The heroic guardians found themselves in pitched battle and for the first time had to rely on each other if they were going to survive. As the melee grew into a free-for-all each character discovered his strength.
Coelric nearly singlehandedly defeated a squad of crossbowmen that surely would have released volley after volley on his friends if he hadn’t acted swiftly.
Prestollion proved that stereotypes should be ignored when he battled his kin in blood to protect those kindred spirits in the town of Norfield. He swept mooks aside in swaths.
Golvendir earned his first self proclaimed name when he parted the ground around a cave troll allowing is compatriots to deal death on a equal footing. “Sandman” is sure to acquire many more names most of them earned and few that aren’t.
Alhwin proved his worth when he was able to determine the true nature of an aquatic beast that liked to “fish” for man.
But all the above mentioned deeds pale next to the actions of Sven Rockwell. Bravery worthy of song and daring recanted in many bedtime stories he bolding waded through the hoard of lesser fiends and directly challenged the Dark Elf Shaman. So full of virtue and righteous might was this Paladin in training that the shaman ran away in fear.
When the dust cleared and the threat of the Dark Elves was eliminated the conquerors returned to Norfield to a hero’s welcome.
