"Cartac"

A time to rebuild

But first hunt down that whore!

The crew discover a letter in the private chambers of the keep that describes some deal between the orc leader of the goblins and some unknown third party. The letter is found together with a dagger that Darlien is quick to tuck away in his bag before the other heroes see it. In one of the rooms here Tonlim finds an incredibly hot Eladrin farm girl, Kasandra, tied to a bed asleep. The group are a bit suspicious of this, but they release her. Kasandra claims to hail from outskirts of Safire, and to have been captured by the goblins in Vainwood Gorge.
In the armoury on the ground floor the party encounter two goblins, both parties being equally surprised by this. After a swift kill they discover that a dwarf has been taken hostage by the goblins in a small adjacent cell. The dwarf in question is Iron Hand, master smith of the Grey Mountain clan. They help him recover two stone slabs, that seem to have some ancestral history recorded on them, in a room further down the hall.
The group meet up with Goldshield in the courtyard and inform him of what has happened. One of Goldshield’s men escorts Kasandra and Iron Hand back to Riverstone. The party of heroes decide to take a rest and leave the watch duty to Goldshield and his men just in case the small army of goblins that left the keep prior to the skirmish decide to return during the night.
The next morning the heroes hear no news of the goblin army. Tonlim decides to clear up the worst of the rubble with a few of Goldshield’s men. They discover a kitchen in a hallway that was blocked off, which is in a relatively good shape. They stock it with the most basic food items.
Later in the day upon interviewing Kasandra they find that her story does not check out completely. Other things about her just seem to be off. The dagger that Darlien finds leaves a weird black trail upon contact with skin, and seems to be imbued with chaotic energy. Darlien discovers that it leaves no mark on Kasandra. They hire a Halfling spy to investigate her, who goes under the name Cerap. The Halfling reports that she seems to be speaking with someone through a mirror in her purse usually in a foreign language, possibly goblin.
The heroes decide to return to the keep and ponder these things. They ask Cerap to steal this mirror from her so that Frizben might have a closer look at it. After studying it Frizben concludes that there is nothing magical about the mirror at all. In other words, she’s been using a spell to conduct these conversations. In other words, she’s powerful.
The heroes decide to investigate the shrine that the goblins for some reason left untouched. Tonlim politely asks for permission to enter, which is granted, and the heroes find treasures that most likely belonged to the previous lords of the keep along with papers concerning the upkeep and official business of the keep.
Joakim meets the heroes early the next morning offering his services as the steward of the keep. Goldshield is hired as captain of the city guard, and Iron Hand starts working for the lords as their smith. Goldshield is sent off with a small wagon to retrieve goods from Fizbans small realm Pitia Valley which is tucked away in the mountains, and to request aid from fizbans subjekts, he carries with him a written letter bearing the fizbans seal. Kasandra is about to leave that afternoon. The heroes decide to arrest her while she’s in the keep to bid them farewell. Kasandra walks through the main hall and is apprehended by a fully armed party of heroes in a very disadvantageous position. At first she looks puzzled as to what is going on. It is only seconds before Tonlim would have put her in handcuffs, that she starts sprouting wings and reveals her true form. A succubus!
“I am Kasandra, and you will remember my name!”
The heroes don’t think twice about this. They strike at her but to no avail. Quickly Kasandra vanishes in the same manner as the goblin that Tonlim butchered. They find that she’s trying to escape outside on a horse. No time to waste, the heroes must hunt down that whore!
(Der er nogle ting, jeg ikke har inkluderet her, bl.a. kunne jeg ikke specielt godt huske, der hvor Daniel går rundt og føler sig speciel. Bare ret til.)
