The Great Dragon War

The Trial

 

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.

Afterward

 

After settling in from the long journey to Dragon's Roost the party took an break to get their things in order. During this time Einar got word of trouble in his homeland Neidmar and returned to handle the problems in the old keep. Leif and Oona joined him on the trip to help with the problems. While Xexor returned to her mountain homelands to deal with an new strange tribe on their clans land. They call their self's the Hoops. They claimed they come from a faraway place Xexor discovered them in an old abandoned Dwarves ruined battle keep from the old empire. In the keep is a strange Portal or gateway that opens at unknown times or for unknown reasons.

When the party made it to an house sometimes use by travelers in Neidmar they were resting up for the final leg on to the old keep. A strange goblin walks right in on the resting party to their surprise and intrudes himself as Bane. When all is said and done it turns out that this goblin is an assassin as well as undead! Now the party has an new member to help with the grand campaign. So they travel to the old keep to see about things.

Well at the old keep in Neidmar the party had a long battle with more Goblin Dragoons and two very unhappy Bugbears that the Dragoons had planned to have for a meal or six. It all took place inside the old stables which were about to fall down due to extreme old age when the battle ensued fiery magic was used by both sides and the place burned down along with any more evidence of what might be at the root of all there strange troubles. Then after the battle a strange little lizard like creature was running from a pack of Goblins out to have a easy meal. The party catches him and finds out it is the same one spotted in Dragon's Roost.  before all is said in done Bane heals it and it changes into its full grown kind a Draconian of some kind that can even fly it states the keeper of the horn is it master and refers to Einar who found a strange horn in Dragon's Roost. But before they can get to much information it flies off and says it will be back.

Still at the keep or what is left of it the last remaining tower standing is surrounded by some kind of black magic that no one can get near it at the moment. Along with some gold some strange gems where discovered it turns out to be rare Enhancement Gems. These gems can be used with the right processes and time to enhance armor and weapons with better magic's.

The Great Meeting

The party made it to the northern town of Dragon's Roost. After a "short" stop at the Dead Beak Inn for some good mead and some getting to know the friendly locals, they discovered that the town is mostly destroyed…overran with Goblin Dragoons. They also spotted a Giant Undead—which made for a very strange twist. The party checked out the small room behind the Old Claw's Inn, and the town well only to find out that one of the friendly locals who joined with them was a shape shifted Grand Norse Dragon!!! who rules these northern lands in the shape of a human king named Vegtan. He had sought them out for a strange yet soon to be discovered reason. The party found shelter that night in an abandoned, fortified building. While they slept, strange things happened. While in magicslumber, The Warmaster enhanced their equipment in order to make them into the new company: The Dragon's Marked!
