Having finished a previous adventure and returning to their base near Mount Thulbane,, , , and decided they needed to head in to town in Mordulkin to meet with some acquaintances and stock up on some essentials.
Upon arriving in Mordulkin, they visit with Eowald, a museum historian who wishes to acquire documentation from the war between Chessenta and Unther in the nearby village of Guldenberg near the Riders to the Sky Mountains. He is looking for dead soldiers’ journals, strategic maps, and personal interviews if possible. He is willing to pay 500 gold per person who is willing to go and find this information.
Guldenberg and the Gnolls
Upon arriving in the small village of Guldenberg, the characters head for the inn and strike up a conversation with Jarri Cobblepot the innkeeper. Before long Delle, a member of the watch, bursts in screaming, “GNOLLS ARE ATTACKING!” They had attacked an outpost and the town watch geared up to go fight, asking for help from the adventurers, who came along. A mile or so from the village at the outpost, several gnolls attacked the party, but with the reinforcements, they were able to make short work of the monsters. However, at least one gnoll summoned a storm elemental and ran away. Pethorn then revived a gnoll and it led the party to its hidden cave in return for its freedom – but when they arrived, Pethorn gave it a swift end.
A storm began to form as they approached the mouth of the cave, and Shinder Splitears the gnoll shaman in the shape of a Dire Wolf attacked with another Dire Wolf. It was her last act on this mortal plane.
