The story so far…
A Cleric of Talos and a traveling Kender, along with a Tiefling Harper met in the City of Elversult on the Dragon coast. The tiefling asked for aid in investigating a local sect of the Cult of the Dragon, and both the Cleric and the Kender agreed to travel along.
They found the Cult cell in the middle of a ceremony to raise a dracolich. They defeated the Cultists, slew the Dracolich, and began to make their way back to the City of Elversult. As they traveled toward the City, the horizon erupted in a hellish light, and thunderous rumbles were heard . As they continued their long journey, they encountered an envoy from the City of Shade. The kender, upon discovering the envoy was comprised of wizards, immediately lost all form of restraint and slew the envoy, leaving only one wizard who managed to escape. The party then continued their travels, and as they neared the City of Elversult, they found it was under siege, surrounded by and Army of Demons, headed by Orcus, the demon Prince of Undeath, and occupied within by devils, led by the Prince of Hell, Mephistopheles.
The city that had been their base of operation no longer a viable destination, they skirted the city and made for nearby Westgate. They adventured for a brief time in and around Westgate, until Smiling Jack, the kender, managed to inadvertently cause havoc. In his attempt to defeat a displacer beast, a barrel of smokepowder exploded, killing the beast, and setting off a chain reaction that collapsed the sewer system, weakening the foundations of the city, and collapsing many buildings above, including the Market Square.
Upon exiting what was left of the Sewers, the dwarf and the kender met up with an old traveling companion of Fraud the Dwarf’s; a shade known as Delwa. Delwa’s twin, Saelis, who had been a contact for the party, recognized his long estranged brother, and encouraged him to rejoin his old traveling companion.
Jack headed back into town, and the dwarf and Delwa went on to other adventures. Jack proceded to seek out a local tribe of kobolds and spent the next month bestowing his knowledge of small fire arms and smokepowder to the tribe, making them swear to guard the secrets he had taught them, passing them only to other kobolds.
Jack met a half-drow woman named Shawna back in town, and she seemed in search of his acquaintance the dwarf. The dwarf soon appeared… and that is where our adventure log begins…
