Out of Character Notes; This was the initial run with The New Company (as of yet named band of adventurers). This initial group included Garrett (Valen, Elven Bladesinger), Jeff (Araris, Human Fighter), Old Nick (Ethias, Halfling Cleric), and New Nick (Jettara, Human Paladin). We did some brief introductions and back stories for the characters and jumped right in.
In Character; The Company booked passage from Salas, a port city on The Cape of Death in The Southlands for Belrom and The Frozen North aboard the coaster The Salty Dog. The voyage took some four weeks, and during the trip, the Company say many old ruins long since abandoned and saw the seaward side of The Battered Edge, a massive, old mountain range that deprives much of The Southlands and The Grey Wastes of water.
Drawing closer to Belrom, The Company passed an old, abandoned light house (argueably named either Waypoint or De Olde Lighthouse), but their keen eyes saw what appeared to be a signal light from one of the windows.
Arriving in Belrom, they booked a week’s stay at Rhuddy’s, the large inn and store that dominated life in the sleepy fishing village. After a night of talking with the proprietor and the locals, the adventurers turned in for the evening.
During the night, a small force of goblins slipped into town and aboard The Salty Dog, killing several crew members, the captain, and stealing half of the shipment that the ship had brought north. The adventurers awoke to the news, investigated the scene, and then followed the goblins’ trail eastward, towards The Fallen Pillar.
Beneath The Fallen Pillar, they did battle with several pockets of vermin infesting that ancient ruin, and eventually encountered the goblins who had stolen the goods from the Salty Dog. After a brief but bloody skirmish, the adventurers defeated the goblins and brought the goods back to the village.
The next morning found them sailing north, towards a series of ice caverns they had heared about prior to the goblins stealing from the boat, and tat is where we left them.
