With the end of one chapter and the beginning of another, our heroes sought another cause to crusade in the ever present fight against evil and the pursuit of wealth and something else to do. After delving into the ever-changing currents of gossip, the heroes found that one of the many routine caravans that normally made its way through the Blackwood Forest had fallen prey to the denizens of the forest and that only wreckage remained. More than only goods and materials that would bave then been sold the next market day, the daughter of a prominent businessman had also been present, and was now considered missing at best.
After tracking down the daughter’s father, Mr. Randolph Rainheart of Rainheart Goods, a deal was struck by the self-appointed spokeman Dremuslar, and the group then proceeded to make entrance into the forest, seeking the fate of those that once belonged to the caravan.
After one encounter with the “friendly” natives, 7 dead goblins were left behind as the company continued forward on their search. Magical sleep brought Nolan and Adrian out of action temporarily, but also the goblins in a second encounter. However, the group not only had to deal with what dangers may be lying in wait to destroy, but also had to confront strife from within as conflicting ideals brought one confrontation to a fever pitch, as tempers flared and weapons were drawn over where the line is drawn when considering the sanctity of life.
Will Dremuslar be able to convince his fellow explorers that death is not the answer, or will he have to swallow his ideals and accept the majority’s will and allow the goblins to be slayed.
Will this end in the murder of a fellow teammate? Or perhaps we have seen the end of this friendship as the group parts ways?
We shall see in our next installment, “Where’s that Stupid Caravan?” or “When Goblins Rise Again”.
