Tyranny of Dragons

Varis finds a new cause. A band greenhorn Hero's...

Did I tell you I hate dragons of any kind...

I recently come from the “ Stronghold of the Nine”. I met up with Scout who had came back a fortnight ago. He told me to speak with the Cleric in Greenest. Leosin is the name I believe. I made my way to Greeniest. I had just sat down to a tall cold pint when there was awful commotion out side the pub. People were screaming and running for cover because there was a rather large blue dragon causing havoc and terror. A soldier ran by me and said Gov. Nighthill put out a request for any extra hand to fight and dispatch this nasty beast. So I ran with the soldier to the keep. As we entered the keep the entire place shook and large boom came from above where the sounds of battle rang out. “To the parapet” I shouted to the soldier. We ran as fast as we could. Screams again came from above with another large boom like side of the castle had come off. By the time I reach the parapet the vile beast was retreating do to a well placed arrow to his gut. (not a bad shot if I do say so my self) Before me stood a half breed who had made the shot due to the bow still in his hand. With him was two humans and two Dwarfs. I spoke up and said “I am here to help with the…dragon.” Seeing clearly the dragon had been taken care of. I meet this group of adventures who travel with the half breed. Lymric he calls himself and his human brother Malevoiy Kaine. The other human Terra, was possible a druid.(A shady Character, need to keep an eye on that one.) Then the two dwarfs Barragneis, a cleric, and Gustavus. He was dressed in warrior garb. The next day a cry came out from the Governor again. The city had been over run by Kobolds and humans. I had to see for my self, and yes for sure a large army sat on the tree line and they appear to have towns folk hostage. A blue Dragonborn emerged from the tree line and offered up a challenge. He told the Gov.Nighthill to send his best warrior to fight him one on one to the death and he would let the town folk go if his champion won. After five or ten minutes of deliberation and several noble attempts by the half breed to go fight, The group sent Gustavus . I did not want to offer to go but offered an arrow or two if it got out of hand. (Not knowing their true purpose) He entered the battlefield tripping almost falling flat on his face. I’m not sure who taught him how to throw an axe but …wow that was bad. (I thought an axe was an Dwarfs best friend, guess not his.) The Dragonborn followed with a breath attack to the face. (Did I tell you I hate dragons) Gustavus miss again and then was knocked to the ground by the Dragonbon’s great sword. I thought he was dead. Barrgneis rushed to his side, providing healing and a blessing. The Dragonborn let out an ominous laughter, then let go towns folk and he and his army headed south.
Gov. Nighthill put out a bounty on the Dragonborn’s head as well as anyone in his army. The army had looted the town of all its riches. Only merger daily things were left. There were a few weapons hidden way in the keep’s armory. I got my self a might fine compound bow, I will use it with pride and honor to avenge Greenest. Still no word nor sight of this cleric Leosin. A young monk came to the party and informed us of Leosin and his possible where bouts. He had tracked this dragon army south. The monk feared he may have been captured or worse dead. We rested and moved to scot the next morning at sun up. I lead the tracking party, I picked up there tracks rather fast. The party was myself, Lymric the half breed, and Terra. As we scotted the tracks became a bit muddled. After a second look the tracks became clear as they lead to a cave between two plateaus. There was a small unit of kobolds and some cultist. There was some distrust between the two groups they argued as we watched from the tree line. After returning with the news we formed a plan. I would flank the left and the half breed would take the right. The other four would create a goose neck at the base of the two plateaus. I shot a cultist as the half breed shot across to were the Kobolds were by a fire. They responded with there slings. I took a minor wound, and continued firing at them killing several. The half breed helped to kill the group Kobolds with some decent marksmanship. And the rest of the group finished off all but on of the Cultist. (I still have not found information about my brother Rolen Nai’lo? ) The two Dwarfs manage to get information about the main camp from the ugly little creature, I said kill him but no matter. The let him live and go back in to nature how he came in naked. Its getting dark I think we will rest here and leave a day break. This might just be my new cause, They could use a little order in there ranks. I really hope that Dragonborn did not have something to do with my brothers disappearance. I hate dragons…
