Tyranny of the dragon queen
The story so far…
For the past several days, the travelers have been traveling a road that winds lazily across the rolling grasslands of the Greenfields. Sundown is approaching when you top a rise and see the town of Greenest just a few short miles away. But instead of the pleasant, welcoming town you expected, you see columns of burning buildings, running figures that are a little more than dots in the distance, and a dark, wing shape wheeling low over the keep that rises above the center of the town. Greenest is being attacked by a dragon!
At this point Shewan and joker have had very limited interactions with the npcs. Joker used his charisma to talk them out of a fight or two, and they used their stealth to follow the river into the castle courtyard. When all of the sudden they were spotted by 6 kobolds which were dispatched swiftly. To the west of our heroes the homes of greenest burn from the intense dragon fumes as the great winged beast looms overhead.
In there second encounter they ran into another hero Serinda Elderwood to join the cause. When she told the PC’s of the horrible Dalthien Nighthill who had killed her father the king and taken the crown for his own.
When suddenly to the same direction a warrior being chased by various creatures was faltering in the waves of beasts before him. Shewan looked to Joker and said we have to help!
The PC’s rushed to aid the the npc later to be known as Caramon! When the beast were obliterated by Caramons long sword and our heroes quick thinking. Caramon joined the party.
Caramon quickly let the PC’s that his brother was being held prisoner by the standing King of greenest.
Then in front of our heroes a terrified human family (father,mother and three young children) being chased by kobolds ran mercilessly toward them. In which the heroes dispersed of the hoard so bloodily.
The heroes are a party as they approach the gates to the interior of the city.
Without warning, five humans dash out from between two buildings on your left. A limping man and three young children race across the street into more shadows, and a woman carrying a shield and a broken spear turns and faces the direction from which they came. Eight kobolds stream out the alley on the family’s heels and fan out around the woman. Suddenly Caramon dashes between the the woman and the beasts to defend them all. The party defeats the kobolds without prejudice.
Now the heroes stand upon the precipice to a new adventure.
When unexpectedly a older man with a bandaged face arrives. Says I have been looking for help. I’m the governor of this once prosperous town before my uncle destroyed my king. I am. Liam Nighthill.
