Goldenfields

The heroes soon found another pack of of marauding goblinoids and ogres in front of the main abby. Combat was joined again and the creatures were vanquished. A third gang was spotted, but at this point the abbey bell began to ring, putting the entire area on alert. The creatures began fleeing across the fields to the wall, and the heroes gave chase. As they approached the wall, the found two hill giants just inside, fighting with a few guards who had been awakened by the pealing bell….

Goldenfields

The party arrived in the walled abby of Goldenfields. They explored the area and met a number of it’s residents. they returned Rixxit the tressym to Miros, who didn’t take the news of his parents death very well. After decided to stay the night at the Inn, they were awoken by the cries of a halfling bard saying the abbey was under attack. They rushed downstairs to find a gang of ogres, Bugbears and goblins. The party attacked while a pair of goblins rushed off to “fetch the howlers”. The battle was fierce, but the goblinoids were defeated as the party headed out in search of more attackers.

The Tower of Zephyros

As the party prepared to leave Nightstone to make the trek to Goldenfields, a flying cloud tower appeared above the village and lowered a spiral set of stairs made of firm cloudstuff. Upon ascending to the tower, they discovered it’s owner, a rather eccentric cloud giant named Zephyros. He told them about how the ordning of the giants had been broken, and that groups of his kin were casuing trouble across the sword coast. Being a powerful wizard, he had been using divination magics to search for a solution. He had been lead to assist the party by transporting them to a location of their choosing. They asked for him to take them to Goldenfields and he readily obliged.

Along the way, the tower was visited by a group of air elemental cultists on giant vultures, looking to recruit Zephyros for their evil plans. The party objected and combat ensued. The cultists released an invisible stalker from a bag of holding, but the heroes still eventually won the day.

The Dripping Caves

The party discovered some guards left in the nearly ruined keep. They learned from them that the village was attacked by giants from a floating cloud castle. They bombarded the village with boulders before descending and taking the large, obsidian stone from the center of town that is the village’s namesake. They mentioned that the villagers had most likely fled to a cave system north of the village, and tracks headed that direction confirmed this.

The caves turned out to be recently inhabited by a tribe of goblins allied with a pair of ogres. The party fought and killed the ogres plus a few goblins before encountering a goblin looking to make a deal. She offered to free the captured villagers if they would kill goblin’s leader, Boss Hark so she could become the leader. they did so, and she made good on her promise to free the villagers.

Upon return to the village, they found a wagon of building supplies outside the gates that had apprently been dropped off by Felgelos. the party also undertook a quest to return the tressym to the son of it’s owners, who lived in the walled farm abbey of Goldenfields.

Nightstone

While clearing out the village of goblins, they discovered one survivor, a woman in the Inn. Her story seemed dubious and the party soon learned she was an agent for the Zhentarim. The next morning, a group of her fellow comrades arrived in town and laid claim to the village. The party objected and it came to blows. The Zhentarim captain was a difficult foe, but they were defeated in the end.

One the heels of that, an Orc warband, fleeing a disastrous encounter with elves in the nearby forest, came upon the village and attempted to take it as a fortified position. The party did their best to fight them and again save the village, but were hard pressed and close to being overwhelmed. At the point, a bronze dragon suddenly appeared and handily helped defeat the rampaging orcs. He introduced himself as Felgelos, known throughout the sword coast as The Flying Misfortune. A clumsy tail whip taking out the village steeple lent credence to this nickname.

Nightstone

The party was journeying to the small village of Nightstone, only to find that it had been attacked. Boulders were strewn about as if some sort of siege engine had been used to attack the town. It quickly became apparent that the village was in the midst of being looted by goblins. The party quickly set to work clearing the village of the creatures. During their search they encountered a winged cat, known as a Tressym, named Rixxit and brought it along in case they found the creatures owner.
