Rise of the Runelords

A Round-up of 2 Months of Play

Opps, really should keep this up to date.

The story so far:
Having successfully beaten of the goblin attack during the Swallowtail festival, the party gain a bit of a reputation in town as heroes. One of the people they saved, Aldern Foxglove, a noble from Magnimar, invites the party to go boar hunting, which the party accepts. He seems to pay alot of attention to Visera, for some reason.

The party is invited to met with Mayor Deverin, Sheriff Hemlock and Shalelu Andosana, who has some bad news about the goblins attack. The chieftain of one of the five local tribes seems to have managed to unite the tribes. And their attacks are increasing.

Sheriff Hemlock announces that he and some of his men are going to Magnimar to recruit additional soldiers for Sandpoint’s defense. The Sheriff and the Mayor appeal to the party to help with the defence of Sandpoint until the Sheriff returns.

Shortly after the Sheriff has left town, the party discover that the goblin attack during the Swallowtail Festival was merely a cover for the theft of a body from the graveyard. The body was that of Father Ezakien Tobyn, the previous priest of Sandpoint, who was killed in the fire that destroyed the old temple, five years earlier, during the Troubles.

A few days later the party, in the process of leaving the town to hunt goblins, are approached by a halfling by the name of Bethana Corwin, a maid from the Rusty Dragon. Her employer, Amieko Kaijitsu, adventurer and daughter of one of the founding families of Sandpoint, has gone missing. A letter from her estranged brother, Tsuto, had been found, asking Amieko to meet her brother at the Sandpoint Glassworks. The party investigate.

On arriving at the Glassworks, the party discover it is locked up. The Mysterious Masked Vigilantee climbs onto the roof to see inside the building, but is spotted by the goblins inside.
Securing the main door, the party head round to a side door, and gain access there. Inside, they defeat the goblin raiders, and discover the dead (and now glass covered) body of Lonjiku Kaijitsu, Amieko’s father. The party manage to capture one of the goblins alive.

In the basement of the glassworks, the party is ambushed by Tsuto and more goblins, but the party rapidly dispatch the goblins and manage to knock Tsuto unconscious. They discover Amieko, drugged, in a store room, and a secret tunnel running under Sandpoint. The party leave Albrecht garuding the tunnel entrance and take Tsuto and the goblin to the barracks.

Interrogation produced almost no information, but Tsuto’s journal provides some information. Namely the Nualia, a assimar who was in Father Ezakien Tobyn’s care and was thought to have died in the fire that took Tobyn’s life, is behind the attacks.

The party venture under Sandpoint, into the recently discovered tunnels. There they discover a long buried complex, inhabited by a quasit, some really ugly, but unknown, creatures and some zombies. The party successfully explore the complex, dispite Albrecht being turned on the party for a few minutes and a well-placed ambush by the quasit.
