The Adventure Begins….
Our party finds itself at the Swinging Sword Inn in the town of Red Larch. The inn owner, Kayleesa Irkell, and her staff do not trust outsiders because of the many strange events that have been happening around the town and the Dessarin Valley area. She offers the strange newcomers only 2 rooms, which they are forced to share because of her distrust. Geth Stormcrow, the trusting Paladin, is quick to make acquaintances with Killdrak Ironfist, a stout Mountain Dwarf, and Rebecca Stridewright, a Half-Elf who seemed to enjoy the company of Killdrak and who loves the triangle…. Eventually accompanied by Velm Firesong, who was busy laying down tracks on his loon that were so fire the room seemed to get hotter the longer he played. The other room was given to Orryn Nackle, the know it all Gnome who has recently been spending his days working at the Mellikho Stoneworks. Mara, the Half-Elf who prefers her back to a wall, spoke with Orryn about sharing his room (in fewer words than I typed). She also extend the invitation to Balatros, the Halfling that thought he couldn’t be seen hiding in the corner. Everyone in the Inn is perplexed when the door swings open and a large, very large, Goliath walks in. He approaches Kayleesa and asks for a room. When he finds that none are available he turns around and exits, preferring to sleep outside. There is no adventuring tonight, except for the adventure of figuring out how Geth, Killdrak, Rebecca, and Velm will share a room with a single bed…
Day breaks and the characters start to awaken and head down to breakfast. Even The Unyielding manages to make his way into the Inn. Geth was interested in speaking with the town Constable to offer his assistance in any way that he could. Kayleesa was more than happy to point Geth in the right direction, which happened to be towards the town Butcher where the Constable worked. Geth was accompanied by most of the party, some characters thinking that this would be a good opportunity for adventure. Killdrak decided to head to the town blacksmith to offer his services and to repair his armor. Rebecca accompanied Killdrak and decided that he needed to hear all of her wonderful songs of the Triangle. All of them. Balatros, again forgotten about, stayed back at the Inn and again found his corner of silence.
