In The Shadow of Nerath

Thunder on the the Mountain

Having returned victoriously from Shadowfell keep but with grim news you return to Winterhaven to inform her people that thier fellow citizens would not be returning home. Calahan did however assure the people that the souls of the dead have been laid to rest. And this and the news that the necromancy Kalrel was now dead seemed to fill the villagers with relief. A celebration was held though the party was stoic but helpful.

The next morning Lord Padraig Patron of Winterhaven arrived at Watfon’s in to beg a quest of the party. Apparently the Lord of Fallcrest, Lord Allister; recently had his ranch raided by slavers belonging to a gang known as the Blood Reavers, Apparently the Blood Reavers have been getting more aggressive lately and have begun to snatch ever increasing numbers of people. Among the persons seized from Lord Allister’s ranch were several servants and his much beloved daughter. Fearing for her life he has called in every favor he can in order to retreive her. Including hiring several adventuring groups to search Thunderspire Mountain the supposed base of operations of the Blood Reavers. Lord Padraig informs you that there has been little success in the search and has asked that you lend your considerable expertise to the matter.

The party agreed but before leaving Winterhaven spoke to several of the townspeople in an effort to learn more about Thunderpire though the Party’s Mage Elesha was apparently already well versed in the lore surrounding Thunderspire. The party talked to Valthrun the promnisient a local sage about the legend of Thunderpire and found him to be interested but relatively unhelpful. He did however request the boon of the party, perhaps brining him back an item of historical significance. The party also spoke with Bairwin, the owner of Bairwin’s grandshoppe. He provided the party with information about the Seven Pillared Hall. In return he requested the party make a trade with a Drow named Grendar on his behalf for he currently could not be seen in the Seven Pillared Hall due to an outstanding debt with the Mages of Sarun.

The party had an uneventful Journey to Thunderspire Mountain. Though that was as far as thier luck held. Upon arrival to the labyrinth the party witnessed a group of blood reavers attempting to capture a halfling named Rendil Halfmoon. Intervening the party slew the gang members and Rendil escorted them to the Seven Pillared hall to his Aunt’s Inn. The party explored the hall for a time. They made the exchange with Grendar who gave them a set of Drow Fortune stones to give to Bairwin.

Thier Business completed the party set out in search of Lord Alister’s Daughter. Thier first sojourn into the labryinth resulted in them getting lost. Finding themselves deep in the maze and beset by strange monsters and a forboding magical prophecy about Bophomet. After the battle the party again tried to navigate the maze this time they found the Blood Reaver Hide out in the chamber of eyes. Opting for a stealthy aproach the party infiltrated the base and began to slay its inhabitants. After a time the party was set upon by a pair of Derugar. Thier presence in the prodimantly hobgolbin gang remains a mystery.
