The Goblin Woods Path

The Goblin Woods Path
XP = 1201
Synopsis:
The Band of the Wolf finds a route to Highforge outside of the Duke’s Road using the Black Woods and the Mountains. Goblins start to follow them and attack them. Vylgrykk is using scrying magic (locate, etc) to find the box that Kosivikh gave to Kagb. The goblins attacking chant “Kagb Quest!, Kagb Quest!” referring to the mission given to Kagb by Kosivikh. The goblins follow the adventurers and try to kill them to get the treasure and the location of the Caverns of Quasqueton. The adventurers use one charmed goblin to lure the magic away giving him Kagb’s small chest and telling him to go in the opposite direction.

Arriving to the domain of Highforge they are stopped by the frontier guard who is in the lookout for goblins. The adventurers were interrogated but they weren’t trusted (perhaps the shadow elves or the normal elves on the group, perhaps the natural “1”) and were arrested.

A day later they were interrogated again by the “Gnome King” Dorfus Hilltopper, Patriarch Snorri Spanglehelm and the Captain of the Army Frolina Dragonshield. The Band of the Wolf gave them the location of the Caverns of Quasqueton in exchange of their freedom. They can do business but their papers have been confiscated and need permission from the Gnome King to leave Highforge.

The Books
Book #1—A historical work, this book, written in the common tongue, outlines the history of the civilized area within 100 miles of the stronghold location. It contains nothing remarkable. Reference Tome for the skill Knowledge (History).

Book #2—This tome is apparently an encyclopedia of various types of plants. Although the various illustrations given within provide a clue to its topic, it is written in the language of elves, so it will not be understandable to a reader who does not know the elfin tongue (unless a read languages spell is used). Reference Tome for the skill Knowledge (Nature).

Book #3—This volume appears unremarkable at first glance, seeming to be a notebook with many handwritten entries of undecipherable runes and markings. It is actually a diary kept by Zelligar, and it details one of his adventures from the distant past, written in his own hand. The writing is not discernible unless a read languages spell is used. This book is really of no value to any finder, but a book dealer/scribe/librarian would pay up to 50 g.p. for it. Of course, if the book is sold in this manner, the seller risks a 40% chance of word of Its sale getting out as a rumor, with attendant problems developing as those who hear of it seek out the finder for further details.

Book #4—This work, written in the common language, discusses weather. Although well-illustrated with drawings of meteorological phenomena, descriptive text is sparse. Some cryptic notes written in the margins were apparently made by Zelligar, but these are undecipherable without a read languages spell and are actually nothing more than notes such as a student would make in studying the work to highlight important points. Reference Tome for the skill Knowledge (Geography)

Book #5—This work, written in the common language, discusses engineering. Well-illustrated with drawings and diagrams. Some notes written in common in the margins were apparently made by Roghar, but these are actually nothing more than notes such as a student would make in studying the work to highlight important points. Reference Tome for the skill Knowledge (Architecture and engineering).

The Black Wood Path
XP=601

In their second day travelling The Black Woods, the adventurers found two Ogres that are fighting near a crevice. A sack hanged from a nearby dead tree. The bag had a victim inside who was speaking to the ogres in giant but murmuring in common and other languages. The adventurers decided to rescue the prisoner in the sack, who turned out to be a satyr named Pip Luck.

Later that day, two Harpies used their magical songs on the adventurers. They had been eating mushrooms and were high as fuck. So when they charmed the characters with their magic songs, they made then do stupid things like dance and sing.

Finally, the adventurers arrived to the ruins of the hermit on the north of The Black Woods. Pip told them that the hermit was much older than what the humans said and that originally was made for an older forgotten immortal. From the top of the ruins using the Red Box, the location of the tower in top of the Caverns of Quasqueton was found.

Trinkets and Prowess

Trinkets and Prowess
XP = 601

Researching in ancient tomes, searching for lost maps, re-trying failing attempts, The Band of the Wolf have the following results of their lengthy investigation:

  • The Keys – The Keys are made for a special kind of lock, a magical door. The key can open more than one door in the same dungeon. The doors will detect the magic of the key and know is not a fake. Each key by itself is worth 50gps for the materials used in it. The broken R-Key has was repaired but has 50% of failure. The Z-Key is in working condition.
  • Green Crystal Ring – This ring was made of arcane materials and is magical in nature, but the real power of the ring is that is coded to a specific area or to the magical traps or guardians of that area and the wearer can pass through the area without activating them. The ring could be valued as 200gps.
  • Little Red Box – Is made of Red Griffin skin. Worth 130gps. It was crafted to hold two rings (the same size as the Green Crystal Ring). The wood is from a kind of tree found on north of The Black Woods. The metal borders are shaped in the form of temple columns.
  • Nut Shell – The nut shell has some tiny inscriptions in goblin. It is glued up with a resin used by goblins. The smell is that of dried saliva and wolfsbane. Inside, there are more inscriptions in goblin, a piece of wolfsbane and werewolf teeth. Is a goblin amulet against werewolves. The werewolf teeth are worth 40gps.
  • Potion – This is a powerful version of the “Modify Memory Spell”:http://www.d20srd.org/srd/spells/modifyMemory.htm that is tailor made with the following specifications: The potion will make the person who drinks it to forget everything related to the location of the Caverns of Quasqueton and any item that they built for the place. Will Save (DC: 22) Caster Level 17 x Spell Level 9 × 50gps = 7650gps.

Following the riddle found on the old Torpeson’s Logs by Raizak Derek the Band tried to trick Colvis Nilenavi out of his hut and search the place for the unfinished map made by his ancestor with no avail. He saw through the deceit and was mad to the whole group for trying even wounding Maiavel and telling them that he will call his fellow hunters to fight them if needed. The group had to return in disguise using a Change Self spell to buy his family taxidermy collection for 200gp (triple the actual cost) and they found the unfinished map on the inside of a Dire Wolf trophy.

The group decided not to pursue the information they have about the The Ear of Bargle. They decided to go to the mountains and find the Caverns of Quasqueton.

In their first day of travelling The Black Woods, a Dire Wolf attacked the group and wounded one of them. The Dire Wolf was killed.

_Kagb, here are your instructions, don’t mess this up or I will eat your puny entrains and bath on your stinking blood.

Keep the Hordes separated until I arrive. Do not get any special attention from the umans. Your sergents should not know the location of the other groups. Trick and Hide. Steal and Run.

Search for my fortress. Use the treasures in the chest to find the Kastle. They are from the former owners who my father killed 1200 moons ago.

I want that Kastle. From it I will rule all the area and other goblins will joing me.
Beware of the Ear, he wants something that is inside. He wants my precious Kastle. He has an agent in the city.
