After Action Report
Summary

  • While trying to locate kidnappers party encounters a miniature dragon. The party befriends it despite its superior attitude and discovers it is a large green dragon that lives in the Shrieken Mire swamp, and is much revered as Queen of the Mire by a clan of lizard men – among them their old companion Hizt from Rushmore. In return for help finding bandits, the party agrees to remove a rival clan of ugly “mud” scaled (brown) lizard men from swamp. The dragon dislikes them for their ugly colour and lack of subservience to her beautiful Lizard men pets.
  • Dragon tells party of old ruined keep deep in the Thornwood
  • Party talks to Oleanne the druid, who surprisingly knows nothing of ruined keep in “her” forest. She has animals investigating and discovers a “blind” spot in the forest where some evil is avoided by animals, and she herself has unknowingly been avoiding due to subconscious aversion.
  • Party travels to investigate, deciding to leave Oleanne behind in case the evil presence is aware of her.
  • Party ambushes Ogres and is in turn counter-ambushed, but slay all but one Ogre
  • Thorgrim gets message and has to leave on Clan business
  • Party finds a keep with a single broken / shattered / knocked down tower. Attempt to sneak in fails and party is attacked by bandits who turns out to be their attackers from the river.
  • A charmed adventurer (who judging by smell has eaten fish) initially fights with the bandits but breaks compulsion and joins party (Erik)
  • Several bandits slain, including leader, an evil Dwarf Cleric, and a Drow female is captured and stripped of magic armor and weapons, as is a bandit.
  • Bandit mage escapes
  • Dungeons under keep explored, including evil temple to Zehir and cells where hidden dwarf runes from a previous inmate say “orcs + evil + priest + below + snag”
  • In the barred crypt a strange pattern of sorted bones is laid out, when disturbed a blue glow and mist covers the room, and the party finds themselves …elsewhere…
