D&D Encounters – Storm Kings Thunder – Diplomacy and Delivery

The halfling rogue happily sharing her food with the griffon she had befriended. It was while visiting the griffon that she spotted a figure flying towards the tower at speed and raised a warning to her companions (though chose to remain in the aerie – just in case).

As it neared, the remaining heroes could see it was a silver dragon carrying half a dozen armed and armoured dwarves in its claws. The heroes moved out of the tower to the cloud to intercept the incoming visitors.

While the dragon dropped the dwarves off, it continued to circle the tower (Zephyros having brough it to a halt in the meantime). The dwarves stated they were sent by Queen Dagnabbit of Mithril Hall under the auspices of the Lords Alliance to commandeer the tower.

Thankfully the heroes were able to talk the dwarves down and convince them that Zephyros posed no threat to the people’s of the Sword Coast. Satisifed, the dragon picked the dwarves back up and they were on their way once again.

Aside from a fly by from a small group of aaracockra the rest of the journey northward passed uneventfully. Zephyros lowered the tower outside of Bryn Shander and once again made a stairway of cloud matter wishing the heroes good luck before taking his leave.

It was now that the heroes realised they hadn’t brought any cold weather gear, so entering the city they made their way to the market to procure some. On the way they spoke to the Sherrif’s right-hand dwarf and got a brief run down on the lay of the land and directions to a few of the relevant places. After securing warming clothing they went and visited Sherrif Southwell, delivering the belongings and news of his now deceased kin.

The Sherrif told them if they were likely to remain in the area for a while they could earn coin hunting some of the marauding giants that had been attacking caravans and some of the other towns of the Dale. The heroes decided to go and find lodgings and ask around about the caravan raids.

They secured rooms at the Northlook, and after asking around got themselves places with a caravan of scrimshaw traders heading back to Lonelywood next day.

With the heroes spending the rest of the day and night at the Northlook that was where we left it.
