Our three heroes are introduced. Gwenivere Stormrise, an Elderin Cleric who serves bahamut is on the first step of her travel in search of the power of the Old Gods. To find this information she seeks the aid of Proteus the god of knowledge, magic, and most importantly secrets. After searching for weeks she finds that a cleric of Proteus has been working in the town of Splitton to build a temple in his reverence.
Determined to find this man she walked on the Splitton forest, where she was attacked by goblins. Overpowered, she received unexpected aid from from Elfwin, a delusional dwarf who seemed to believe with great conviction that she was an elf. Elfwin made a spectacular failure of herself attempting to save Gwenivere, thankfully Elfwin’s companion, a Bear she calls “Beary” was able to fight off the goblins. Gwenivere, touched took Elfwin on as her charge in exchange for saving her life. Elfwin was happy to fallow “another” elf, and left her forest home for the first time to go to Splitton
Meanwhile, Ulveine Lightborn, the disgraced and fugitive drow, has been smuggled down the great river. His smuggler left him in Splitton to find a contact, Jerico, with the promise that Jerico could keep him secret and safe.
Gwenivere and Elfwin entered the town, with minimal resistance from the town guard who restricted the bear from entering the town. Intrigued Ulveine approached to help the frightened guard to help expidite the situation, and the bear left the town. Gwenivere and Elfwin then stayed at the Town Inn where they made an awakward relationship with the Inn Keeper, a former Cleric who also worshiped bahamut, who was put off by Elfwin’s eccentric ways.
As these two were making a Scene Ulveine continued his search for Jerico, going to the large cabin that was known as the mayors office. Ulviene had a quick and unfruitful interaction with teh receptionist, a rude and troublesome lady, who had Ulviene thrown into jail for the night for wasting her time. Ulviene found that the mayor’s personal guards were much better trained than the town guards themselves, and they carted him to the “Prison” A Simple cage that existed out in the woods.
Meanwhile Elfwin and Gwenivere conitnued to search the town, relaxing and becoming accostomed to their surroundings. They met with Griff, an old blacksmith who seemed to be quite unhappy with the town. They bought on old iron horseshoe from the man, and asked where they could find their priest. Griff cautiously directed them to the Mayor’s office, and also gave them the information regarding the innkeepers past as an adventurer. He ominously wished them good luck as they left him.
The next morning Ulviene was released from custody after spending the entire night attempting to pick the lock, to no avail. Confused and disgruntled he went about a different way of finding his contact. He asked around for Jerico at the mill and was surprised to find that Jerico frequented the mill for wood. The two woodcutters, Tom and Felt, told Ulviene that Jerico was due to return in a week or so. Ulviene went to go search out for Jerico, deducing that what he was building must be either north or south of the town if he didnt always come in from the main road.
Searching north of the town Ulviene found wagon tracks, however when he fallowed them he found htey led in circles despite being perfectly streight. Ulviene deduced that magic must be invovledand doubbled back to the town, taking a work with the Mill workers in order to wait out JErico.
Meanwhile Elfwin and Gwen, interogated the innkeeper about her past, and about the preist. The inkeeper told them that preist’s name was Jerico and that he was infact building a temple to Proteus, however because Proteus is a god of secrets, the temple would be build away from the town in a hard to find place. Elfwin and Gewn thanked the innkeeper and went to go find out what they could about this man.
They fist went to the Mill and asked the two mill workers about Jerico. Ulviene, who was working there, overheard them and after finding out that they were searching for the same man, decided to work together.
The united group then went to the general store where the fat, and greedy shopowner sold them information regarding Jerico’s buissness dealings. that he often had marble and oils shiped from up river in order to build his temple. After Uliviene threataned the man, he told them that Jerico was due back in 2 days.
The Pary waited, and Met with Jerico in the general store….
