Harkenwold's Most Wanted
The Harkenwold

The party has eradicated the bullywug base and prevented the slippery Chief Gloorpk from escaping into the woods. One lone survivor escaped their wrath, or one could say was spared to send the news to the others. Either way, the remaining bullywugs have dispersed and our heroes have scored a victory for the resistance in the form of Tor’s Hold’s fighting men.

On their way back to Albridge, they encounter a group of Iron Circle goons that appear to have been looking for them.

It seems our intrepid group have made quite an impression on the Iron Circle…

The Harkenwold

The party has taken Gloorpk, the chieftain of the raiding bullywugs holed up in Toadwallow Caverns, captive and in the process, slaughtered the foul beasts and their eggs…

But on their way out, a raiding party has returned back to base, hailing our heroes with a deep, bellowing croak. They rush to the entrance of the cave and prepare a rude welcome.

The Breakers of Chains
The Horned Hold

Through the valiant acts of a few brave heroes, the various slaves of Riverdown, Fallcrest, and Solanthus have been liberated and the evil Grimmerzhul Clan driven from the Horned Hold back to the recesses of the Underdark!

Stories of our heroes’ exploits spread like wildfire through many a tavern and inn throughout the Seven Pillared Hall. Bards regale crowded bars with tales of how Theograden the Stout held a door against a mighty ogre, of how Haki the Brave was able to split an arrow in two while on the run, of how Xaerun the Bold is wont to conjure pillars of flame at a mere suggestion, and of Nympharia the Merciful, Breaker of Chains, and apparently, a purveyor of a wildly successful orphanage back in the barony of Harkenwold.

But alas, there is little rest for these heroes of Winterfell and their new fiery companion. Ulric Markelhay, healed from his ordeal, is ready to travel home to his father. The peoples of Riverdown need an escort home to Harkenwold. Caleb, the elderly barkeep from Solanthus, seeks to discover the fate of his family.
