Session 6

8th of Firebirth, 1383 Era of Man

After a couple more days of training an Orc raiding group makes its way through the forest toward the tower. Rhogar is injured but makes his escape. The group at the tower is able to warn those at the Inn and finally the Orcs arrive at the tower. The group is able to defend the tower and eliminate all of the Orcs. They are not able to find out much about their origins other than they come from north of the Grove of the Ancients.

11th of Firebirth, 1383 Era of Man

Having completed their week of training the group meets in the temple to attend a ceremony to induct Byron into the Champions of the Noble Heart. The group is then given the Shield of Alexandria and Arcturus, Sword of Stars, to keep hidden from the agents of the Invincible Overlord. Xerex hearing that the shield has been given to Byron swears fealty to him in order to keep the shield safe. Xerex takes on the title of Protector of the Shield Bearer.

The group leaves town heading northeast to Cragmaw Keep. On their way they come upon one of the elvish standing stones a small obelisk the elves use for traveling, and now many travelers uses as a distance marker.

Finally they reach the keep and find a camp of goblin women and children just outside the main entrance of the keep. They thoroughly scout the keep and find an entrance on the side of the keep. They lay plans for their assault…

Sword of Stars

As One of the Teeth of the Dragon, the Sword of Stars was forged by the elves to entomb the spirit of an ancient and terrifying dragon. The elves made seven "teeth". Legend says that if all the teeth are brought together it will summon a powerful dragon.

The Teeth of the Dragon are so ancient that not much is known about them, but it is said they are the first items to be infused with magic.

The Sword of Stars appears to be a void filled with the stars of the night sky. It was forged of a dark obsidian with flakes of mythril added during the forging process.

The Sword of Stars can be attuned to by any class.

The Sword of Stars has a +1 bonus to hit and to damage.

Shield of Alexandria

Once a badge of the highest office of the land. Each king of Alexandria would carry this shield with them. When the Good King Omund was defeated by the agents of the Invincible Overlord the shield was put into hiding.

+1 shield (+3 AC overall when wielded)

Sir Xerex

The Lawgiver

As a member of the Dragon Phalanx, Xerex is hunted by the Invincible Overlord just for being a symbol of a more lawful time. The Dragon Phalanx served as the King's personal bodyguard, but had many other responsibilities such as being shock troops in battle and traveling the land as representation of the King's law.

Each member of the order has a title bestowed on them, and Xerex's title is "The Lawgiver" for his acts in bringing law to the remote towns of Alexandria. The citizens of these small remote towns love Xerex and would be willing to stand in his defense against the agents of the Invincible Overlord.

Xerex heard of the troubles that Conyberry was facing and decided to travel there to see what he could do to help the town.

Conyberry

A small and simple town, Conyberry sits just outside the borders of Bedegar. Conyberry is a farming community and often exports their crops to Bedegar. The town itself consists only of a shop, an inn, a temple, and a few houses. Just outside of town sits the Old Owl Well Tower. The town has a small cemetery near the tower.

When the Invincible Overlord outlawed the gods of man the hawk lords came to town and desecrated the Temple of Ilmater.

Festival of Lights

Not too long before the rule of the Good King Omund there was another king of Alexandria, his name was Rodgar. He lost his daughter when she was just a child. He decided to gather his court and hold a ceremony where they lit small floating beacons made of parchment. They sent the beacons up into the night sky to help the King’s daughter find her way home.

Now many years later the people of Alexandria still gather to light the beacons and send them into the night sky. Each person lights their beacon for someone in their life who is missing and never been found. Each year thousands of beacons are sent into the sky to help those who are missing find their way back home and light the darkness on their path.

Staff of Power

The Staff of Power comes from a time long before man arrived, when Dwarves ruled the world. The staff was forged of a very heavy and hard metal, adamantine. On the staff is printed in Dwarvish “Power of Ord be with you”.

The staff can be attuned to by a sorcerer, wizard, or warlock.

This staff can be wielded as a magic quarterstaff that grants a +2 bonus to attack and damage rolls made with it.
