As always when starting a new adventure, I begin with hope for interesting experiences, good food, song, daring adventure and of course dalliances with the fairer sex. I came to The Nentir Vale hoping for all of those things as well as the chance to explore some ruins and feed my craving for seeing bits of history up close and personal. Maybe I’ll even get lucky and find out more about that old banner I’ve been toting around for so long now.
I was fortunate to find a traveling companion in the form of a somewhat haughty Tiefling named Beldon. I gathered he thought that I might be of use to him, but that pendulum swings both ways and I’m sure his ability with a sword may be needed with rumor of goblins, bandits and worse in the area. Beldon also managed to gather others to our exploration of the area. He knew two ladies from one of the local villages that have agreed to join us. They are Daedares, a High-Elf that is some sort of village mystic and Marissa a Half-Elven ranger. Swords, exploration and damsels, I should write a song and turn this into a true adventure.
We encountered a small band of Kobolds that had attacked and taken prisoner a local tradesman. In truly heroic fashion we saved the day, routed the Kobolds and managed to even earn a reward from both the local authorities and the tradesman’s employer. We then escorted the tradesman on the next leg of his journey and shortly after splitting from him managed to save his wife and son as well during an attack on their village. We are truly shaping up to be heroes. And we have managed to pick up another Tiefling, a sorcerer named Mortheus and a human rogue named Anthose. The sorcerer seems able if timid and the rogue has already shown that he has a knack to getting not only himself but also the rest of us into trouble.
We seem to be swept along following the strings of some sort of plot that escapes me at this point. But I am sure that our own heroic natures along with a large dose of luck and the knack for being where we’re needed will see us through this adventure and leave us ready for even greater things beyond that. I need to start getting on to writing an epic song about these adventures. I will write again soon.
