The First Frontier

An Orcing we will go. An Orcing we will go.

Dear Adella,
We finally returned to town with the spell components. We came across some sort of ooze one the way, but it was nothing to destroy it.

The town guard were training the locals in anti goblin fighting. It turns out that the local Orcs and Gnolls were fighting and it was the goblin’s territory that the were fighting in. I made some long spears for them. We then set out to attack the Orcs base of operations. We came across a small Orc camp. Aylen and myself charged in on horseback. Jin also charged in, while Luke, Zul, and Asher supported from range with their spells. After destroying the defenders, which included some Kobolds, we determined that several Orcs fled. So we were forced to hunt them down.

They tried to ambush us. This group also had an Ogress with them as well. Not that it did them much good. While she rang my shield like a gong, she fell as well.

Both groups were enslaving the Kobolds (and the Ogress) using some sort of magic.

We will need to do more damage to the Orcs to weaken them enough so they can be driven out of the area.

Beware! Flying snakes!

Adella,
We tracked the gnoll archers back to their camp. We struck while they were resting. Asher enspelled them so they could not move and we slaughtered them handily.

We returned to looking for the spell components we were hired to find. We found them on a small hill. There were snake holes present, as we had been informed there would be. Asher and Pip went forward to try and convince the wild animals that we were not out to harm them and could they harvest in peace. Then they started to harvest the berries. And the hillside was suddenly covered with snakes. Most of us were a ways off, so several of us moved back (and I tethered the mule) while others moved to engage. What was unnerving was that these were the babies! Mama snake appeared as well. Jin showed the beast his skill with the greatsword. Asher brought forth a fire elemental to assist. There was not much of a challenge in this fight and the snakes were chopped into bite sized morsels (tastes like chicken actually).

When we were resting that evening, we found out what it was like to be the gnolls whose camp we attacked. A gnoll attacked us, using the same spell Asher used on them.
There were also some hyenas to deal with, including a large sized one.
The undergrowth held most of us fast. Once again Jin showed all his skill and strength by breaking loose and smiting the giant hyena. Pip peppered the gnoll with arrows. The final hyena ran off. I had cast a spell to make my arrow hit true, and fired, at the same time that several others also fired. All our shots struck at the same time, interfering with each other amd leaving the hyena untouched. We took it as a sign and left the beast in peace.

I will write more later sis.

Wolves, Hyenas, and Gnolls, oh my!

Adella,
I put the finishing touches on the flail and heavy pick that I’ve been working on. I sold the rapier to Akeema. This letter should arrive before the caravan she and Khaska are escorting does.
Jeffers told me about some livestock problems that the town guard have been looking into. We decided to go take a look and see if we could find anything. We found a trail that led to a den of of three wolves. And one of those wolves was huge! Aylen says that it was a Dire Wolf! We made that the top target. While Aylen and Jin moved in to attack the beast, I moved around to the creature’s rear. Then Zul cast a spell on me to make me larger. Well the dire wolf did not like that and tried to flee (it could also have been Jin slapping the beast with his great sword), but whith me so large, I could easily crush the creature’s skull with the flail. We put down the other two wolves and returned to town to let the guard know we had solved the mystery.

We camped out that night. It was a fair evening, so we did not use the tent. We have regretted that decision. A trio of gnolls and their hyena pets assaulted us in the night. And one of them decided that I was one of the first threats to eliminate.
Please be at ease sister. While I have a new scar to show to you, the coward fell to Luke’s fire quick enough. We dispatched the rest of the band and left their remains for the wild animals to claim. I did get a composite shortbow out of it. And since bows are not weapons that I make, I decided that using it would be fair.

A local spellcaster wants us to find some plants for her. I will write when I get back.
Omar.

Adella,
Well, the gnolls are definitely upset with us. We were ambushed by four gnoll archers. I use the term lightly. They nicked our point man, Pip and then tried to run. I took a moment to secure the mule and riding horse, and just in that time, the fight had moved deeper into the woods. So I stayed and guarded the animals while the ambushers were hunted down.
How’s that for glorious adventuring?
Omar

Welcome to your Adventure Log!
A blog for your campaign

Every campaign gets an Adventure Log, a blog for your adventures!

While the wiki is great for organizing your campaign world, it’s not the best way to chronicle your adventures. For that purpose, you need a blog!

The Adventure Log will allow you to chronologically order the happenings of your campaign. It serves as the record of what has passed. After each gaming session, come to the Adventure Log and write up what happened. In time, it will grow into a great story!

Best of all, each Adventure Log post is also a wiki page! You can link back and forth with your wiki, characters, and so forth as you wish.

One final tip: Before you jump in and try to write up the entire history for your campaign, take a deep breath. Rather than spending days writing and getting exhausted, I would suggest writing a quick “Story So Far” with only a summary. Then, get back to gaming! Grow your Adventure Log over time, rather than all at once.
