The party returned from their personal journeys to continue the great war saga. Einar and his band are at the local tavern and come upon some fellow marked members the sly Morthos the thief and the strong dragon hearted Alek the paladin of Bahamut. They meet the Old Inn keeper and had some good drinking and heard some of the local history of the area and about one of the items n the position of Einar that it is a Horn of Calling. The horns owner has many horns but this one was one of the favored ones and is "looking for it." The next day come the trials both with sore heads and the actual trial. They did battle with some undead and even dealt with an Lodi they where some tough battles but they survived and won the trials.
Well during the course of the day they discovered that the old keep on the hill has some kind of connection to the plane of the dead! The one they thought that was Vegtam was the evil joker god himself Loki. During the trials they came upon an Valkyrie living statue that was called to the battlefield during the course of conversation she came to see about this Vegtam that was supposed to be here in Midgurd. She told them that in fact that Vegtam was resting after having to heal a fallen hero in his great hall. She then "borrowed" the great horn to call Odin's aspect to the site. once was all said and done they discovered it was a very sick ruse on Loki's part. the old town of Dragon's Roost was all but destroyed and occupied by the living undead and dragoons everywhere. This goes to show that the evil involved in this war goes to no ends.
Odin gave the lordship to the battle group Dragon's Marked to restore order to the town and local areas with the town somewhat restored the local towns folk are coming out of hiding and setting up shop again. "The old keep still stands at least the last tower for now". The Valkyrie Brynhilda has be asked to help the battle group and will be found in and around the town she now lives in the" old guard tower" in the middle of town. So very important things did come from this Odin did keep this battle group to keep up the great war and granted them with one of the "Draupnir Rings" his master ring makes. They know it can help them with speaking, dealing with otherworldly magic's, and granted them some kind of powerful feat or power. What this power is no one but Odin knows and has not reviled it yet!
The trails where completed with some interruption In the form of a small black dragon landing in the middle of the trials. This little one now has an interest in the group and will continue to check up on them! But something did come from all this the new battle group The Dragon's Marked!!
The local Inn has a very special keeper interest in the area as at one time he was the mage king of these lands. There have been some troubles from the local hoop tribes in the area as well a strange flying ship has been discovered in the area as well. The town has a basic forge up and running. A mages tower formed over night and seems to be open for business. Some basic guilds are setting up shop to represent their interests in the area including the rumored shadows guild. Odin's worshipers are rebuilding the long house in his name. and more are heard to be coming to the rebuild town of Dragon's Roost.
So what shall become of the party will the helpless little monsters with very sharp teeth get their deserved meals finally we shall see.
