Upon entering the village at dusk Edrik discovered a missing scarecrow. The Heroes rushing to the defense of the family came into combat with a moving shadow and the scarecrow animated by foul magics. At first morning light with the adventurers discovering that just before the dead began to rise a madman came to town raving about The Crimson King before he went into an old barrow above the village.

The trials of Roesta
Our adventure begins

Our journey begins in the rough and tumble logging town of Timberland, Our heroes: Edrik a human assassin, Thror a dwarven fighter, Dario a half elven ranger and Eneko a half elven duelist, were drinking their individual sorrows away when from outside The Hole they heard the sounds of battle and violence

Outside the town was in chaos with globes of utter darkness covering much of the town watchtowers while inside the town the village burned. Discovered by 6 Orcs the heroes engaged with Thror and Eneko engaging them in melee while Dario and Edrik fought at range. While most of the Orcs surrounded the dwarf and the duelist Edrik had a running fight with one through the town with Edrik evading his pursuers only to discover that the Orcs were under the control of some Drow and both were carting off some the villagers for some nefarious purpose. Concurrently the rest of the party engaged another dark skinned elf who though wounded was able to escape.

In the aftermath the survivors looked to our heroes and the town boss Throm-One-Tusk they beseeched our heroes now called colloquially as The ones left standing to save the taken villagers. Dario tracked our missing villagers to a camp at the base of a cave where the remaining orcs roasted the remains of a villager on a spit. Distracting two of the three Edrik unlocked one of the cages while the rest engaged and killed one orc while the other two ran off to the wilds. Inside the party discovered an ambush waiting for them with two drow and a quaggoth. While Quaggoth attacked and brutalized the party nearly killing Dario the drow elves one who’s name you learned was Raaitan escaped through a crack in the wall via drow magic. Our heroes saving the rest of the villagers met the lord of the land Darius-Brightwood and were given a letter of recommendation and asked to meet the Lord at Greywind
