Having met up randomly (or not!?) in a tavern not far from Greenest, our party was quickly pulled into their first adventure when a raiding party (including an Adult Blue Dragon!) swarmed over the small village, bent on a looting spree.
After arriving in Greenest and witnessing the chaos firsthand, their attention was drawn to a fleeing family of 5: mother, father and 3 children.
Our heroes fought valiantly to protect them from a band of kobolds, part of the invading raiders, and managed to escort most of them safely to the town’s Keep, the exception being the father who was brutally cut down despite our heroes best efforts to prevent it.
On arriving at the Keep as the last party to be allowed in before the big iron gates were closed to keep out the advancing raiders, they proceeded to offer assistance to Tarbaw Nighthill, governor of Greenest, and to the Castellan (Keepmaster) Escobar the Red.
They proceeded to clear out the old tunnel leading to the river, to provide a covert way in and out the now surrounded keep, and used it to sneak out to go defend the nearby water mill, an invaluable resource for this small town, which had come under attack.
Upon returning, they were confronted with an attack by the Dragon, who had until then been mostly passively circling the Keep. In an astounding feat for our inexperienced group, they managed to hurt the vain Dragon (who apparantly was not interested in completely annihilating the town, which it was capable of) enough to coerce it to leave the area.
This bring us to the current situation.
A small group of raiders that was patrolling the castle had managed to find the small sally port leading into the Keep and forced it open. They were swiftly slain, by the combined efforts of the ground forces, bard Conor and druid Orilana, with support from the Keep’s Tower from the party’s warlock Mumed and rogue Erevan.
With the party now guarding a mageling who is magically repairing the sally port, our story continues when another group of raiders, having noticed the broken port being repaired, rush towards our heroes to try and stop them…
