Rise Of The Rune Lords

Chapter 1 Burnt Offerings

Adventure Overview

We begin in the small coastal town of Sandpoint. In a time when rumors of rampaging dragons and massing armies of giants have everyone on edge, the people of Sandpoint eagerly anticipate the coming Swallowtail Festival to commemorate the consecration of a new temple. Yet, at the height of the ceremony, disaster strikes. A band of goblins assaults Sandpoint.

After staving off the goblin raid the adventurers come to terms with their new found local fame, making friends and contacts among Sandpoint’s citizens, and sometimes more than friends. Rumors of massing goblin armies are spreading to the adventurer’s ears. These are dangerous times.

Following the goblin raid on Sandpoint, a goblin hiding in one of the homes of a family in town, kills a father and terrorizes the family. A couple days follow with intense investigation at the behest of the Sheriff and just when most leads have dead-ended, Ameiko Kaijitsu goes missing. Searching her father’s Glassworks, Tsuito, her half brother has joined forces with the goblins to some unknown end, but murdered their father and captured Ameiko.

Flushing out ruins beneath Sandpoint Cathedral, the party discovers a Quasit who Tsuito was working with to utilize an ancient well of magic to spawn creatures of wrath. Emptied of its power and the Quasit dispatched, the party goes in search of Nulia again.

Shelelou leads the party to Thistletop, following the mercs and Bruthasmus there, who work closely with Nulia. After near a full day sweeping through floors within the ruins many levels, the party dispatches Bruthasmus, a merc in her employ and capture another and Nulia herself.

The party returns to the Thistletop warren and faces off with the summoned/freed demon, Matheshnacore, a greater bharghast. Pelias is almost killed in the battle, but when defeated, the party is able to sigh in clear relief, this threat ended at last.
