Explore, explore

The Hook

The party has heard Iíll tidings from Westhaven. Will they return?

Prelude

In a swamp: if they come it could upset everything.

In Westhaven: I hope the heroís return soon, too many have disappeared.

Elsewhere: look my lovely fresh meat and they have treasure.

In Doomgate: Man the wall! Cavalry make ready! This could be it!

Summary

The group tracked the kobolds back to their lair making their way into a mountainous region as they continued their quest to return to Westhaven. They spotted a half-dozen kobolds up on a ridge, but the kobolds hadn't seen them yet. Alon made quick work of them.

They continued to advance on the kobold's lair, but were cautious given the reputation of kobolds as wily trappers. Eventually, they spotted the opening to the lair and made their way forward. It seemed to easy and probably was as another group of kobolds stepped out of a hidden area and attacked their flank. It was a tough fight6, but the heroes prevailed and continued to explore.

They found a giant pile of gold, but were more than a little nervous about such an obvious trap. They decided it had probably belonged to the dragon, but were still nervous and so continued their exploration.

They fought some of the kobolds allies, found the sorceror's lab, and then made their way into a room with a demon who was trapped. A tense negotiation followed with he heroes wanting the demon to leave and the demon saying he couldn't leave until they broke the circle. The demon hadn't bargained on the strength of Arric's connection to the Blessed Attendant and soon found himself being slowly destroyed by her power.

He departed screaming threats of vengeance.

They searched the lab and found more info on the plans against Westhaven including that their were five sites forming a pentagram and the optimal time for the evil ones to act was soon. They also found a strange gate with a mithril loop and glyphs saying "Explore, explore, explore". Between the demon and the fact that the sorcerer seemed not to have tried it, they decided to leave it and go to Westhaven where they were needed and might have time for some research.
