Three months have passed since Brag Goroth’s death. Three leaders of Esteperon the cost. Since his death many more plagues have sprouted in Arken. Seems Drow have been spotted in the Dwarven mountains birthing dragons deep inside. Balljacks has arrived in Esteperon to meet with a very unsure Dull who is overwhelmed with all the news and questions about Esteperon. Wanting to walk from the Title steward all together. He comes to help Dull Rule. Upon his arrival a young Furyfire scout named salamandrius, an interesting gnome who loves fireworks and loves adventuring even more whom was dispatched by Balljacks from Westpoint to investigate near Thorton about the ever rising mists. The fearless gnome enters the cave. A few twists and turns later he has delved deep. That’s when he hears a clanky dwarf heading towards him. Following close behind an injured female Half Orc. The dwarf informs Sal that there is danger behind him. Stating dragons are rising from the depths. And their masters are believed to be Drow. As Sal explains this all to Balljacks he appears dumbfounded but Sal continues his story. He had forgotten the bad news, said Sal which stopped the dwarf and the Half Orc in their tracks. Seems the way in collapsed in after he entered. The dwarf remembered an old secret passage. Wasn’t sure where it led. Just that his brother told him of it years ago talking about the old times. When investigated it led through a narrow tunnel. Many miles it was in length. Seemingly many days passed before they finally saw the end and a small passage above them. The passage above them brought them into a round room with stone spiral stairs going up this tower. But they knew of only one and wondered where they were. When they reached the top Esteperon laid below them. 300 feet down they would climdown, with help After distracting some guards to help them down they were escorted to dragoons. And that’s where we are now master. Says Sal. Balljacks scratches his chin and says. Come with me we will meet in Dulls chambers. Bring your friends..for five me who are you Dwarf…and your friend? Seemed the girl was Dagra. The first female trained by The Slayers of Esteperon. A strong Half-Orc imprisoned on Esteperon and sent to battle in the arenas for the crimes of her orc related clans. Fought her way to freedom and instead of leaving Esteperon she signed up to become a Slayer. So she was sent to the mountains to investigate the high peaks. Taking samples of mists there. She stumbled and fell between the cracks into an open fisher. She fell many feet and was knocked unconscious. That’s when the dwarves found her. Thinking she was a stinking orc they locked her in a cage. Ordered to do so by his lieutenant…So who are You Dwarf…what’s your name. Stonebeard
I couldn’t leave the girl trapped..she did nothing to me..so here I am. I can help in any way you please. The half orc nodded as well and began to come too a little bit more. Explaining her part and being able to discern the race of the invading Drow into the Northern Mountains. Dull ordered the collapse of the secret tunnel fearing they may find their way right into their city. Together Sal, Rag and Dag all met with Dull. Balljacks was also there and two of the Moonlight Syndicate were also present as advisors. Eldritch and Phoenix from Westpoint. Phoenix was pleased to see his nephew Sal. Discussions went on throught the day. Balljacks had information about the south. These 3 new adventurers had news of the north. All wondering how all of this tied together. So much had happened in Esteperon. Thebgroup was very unsure about where to begin. They couldn’t agree to one need filled for the city. That’s when the decision became very clear what they needed to do. Screams were heard from the door and the dwarf looked out of the window and saw a black dragon perched on the upper edge of the arena. A booming voice was heard announcing… Brag Goroth is the one and only lord of these lands, and his reign has yet ended. Flying away off into the distance.
