April 21st Teaser

Our April 21st Teaser is a letter to adventurers.

Adventurers, His Majesty has tasked me with looking into something strange happening in Whitford. There have been several deaths of people who have a political nature. I don’t think these will be the last of them. After reporting to his majesty king Lycergis, he has said I launch a larger investigation. As you may know. Whitford was given a right to establish a local government sanctioned by the kingdom. Dragonreach doesn’t have a large amount of landed nobles in Eastlands, there are none in Springdale. But, law touches all of Dragonreach, and the function of government is the function of law.  He has granted Whitford the right to choose it’s own Mayor until such time that a noble house can be granted the land. A large group candidates emerged each vying for position. However the list grows shorter day by day. Candidates keep succumbing to mysterious circumstances. I believe it is murder by a single political rival. I believe the person arranging these circumstance is one of the 3 front runners. The situation also appears like it will continue to progress. I can share more information with you when you get here. I know all of you had spent some time in the mines. Whitford isn’t very far from the mines. The miners have been able to block off those tunnels for now and continue mining. However, we’ve had a big problem with the green dead, they’re everywhere. We’ve also had some elemental battles break out a ways outside town. Generally I understand it best to not let those things sit. This is a large undertaking and I fear I’m not a very good investigator. I know King Lycergis has used you in the past to help solve problems. I hope you can all help me here. So I’d like to formally invite you all to Whitford to assist me in my investigation. I can meet with you early in the morning on April 21st and hopefully you can provide me with enough assistance to stop what’s happening. Thank you in advance, Squire Matthew Callighan

Season Closer (Oct 6-8) Teaser

He lets out of a cough. Dust is thick in the air. “This has gotten messier then I had hoped it would. We need an alternative. I will return.” The man, well for lack of a better word, turns around and walks away. Soon his figure fades into the deep clouds of dust.

The man continues to walk. Soon the stars shine above him. A sight he isn’t often used to. The mist around him grows think. He laughs to himself. “I guess I cannot escape something in the air”.

He emerges from the mist in a small town. A farmer is getting an early start on transporting his goods to market but in his rush one of the wheels of his cart come lose and the cart all but tips over. The mans approaches the farmer. “Do you need assistance good man?”. The farmer has a terrified look on his face. “Uhh. No. I’m fine.”. “Nonsense” the man says. He lifts the cart up so the farmer can put the wheel back on. The farmer thanks the man. “Good man, may I ask a favor?” The farmer let’s out a quick “Sure”. “You have adventurers in this land yes? Where do they spend their time?” “Valbrough sir” The man follows up with “Ah. Of course, and is there an easy way to get there?” “Uhh. Yes sir. If you can figure out how to use that stone.” The farmer gestures behind him. “Wonderful thank you for your time”. The man walks towards the stone. read more

August 4th Event Teaser

The hobling sits alone, feverishly studying leaves under a microscope as the plants continue to encase his workshop. He absentmindedly kicks another vine as it encroaches upon his saferoom.

There is a large slam of the front door. A bloodied and dirtied dwarf stomps into the room before him, catching his breath and tightly clutching a spyglass in his hand.

As the duo sits together and prepares, they share a moment of silence knowing in their hearts that this casting is their final attempt. Will they persevere and put an end to this attack? Or will they fail… only to be forgotten like the shimmers of civilizations before them? read more
