Northern Heights...(Adventure-Multi Part)

Postby Guest » Tue Dec 19, 2006 12:37 pm

Two of the region’s most famous explorers, Kargul the Axehanded, and his partner Gretux Kayrrgard, dwarven explorers, treasure seekers and most notably mountain climbers came through Silverymoon a few weeks ago with a very exciting tale. While climbing along the Spine, north of Mithral Hall, they discovered a cave entrance. It was not a normal cave entrance, but one covered in ice. This should come as no surprise to those familiar with places high in the mountains. They were well above the snow line, and just thought this was likely a hole in the mountain that was had been covered by years of ice pack. While this theory may very well be true Gretux found something that caused them to move on rather quickly and not find out. He found a large nail sticking out of the cave floor from what had to be an even larger claw. On this deadly weapon was a ring. The ring was bracelet sized to the dwarves, and when they had it appraised, it was found to have magical properties. They said the ring aided in either fire, or made it’s wearer a flyer. Whatever the ring did, its value was great, and although they personally did not explore the cave, they both think there are likely more riches beneath its icy walls. Of course, there may be the owner of that claw there as well… It has been a few weeks since the information started floating around, but few showed interest. The Spine is extremely deadly this time of year, and everyone knows it. There is even a map that has popped up as well, but death comes sooner than Spring in these lands, most people are of the mind to wait.

(Levels suggested 8+ Accepting 5th to 12th. Consider this if you submit your character! There will be no quarter nor special treatment for anyone, regardless of level. OH and too many characters over 8th will effect the ECL of the adventure. The opposite effect will not happen with many under 8th lvl signing up.)

Violet doesn't get out too much, but she does have ears. Her eagerness to join those she has met in true adventures makes her seek to find out more information.

SHe's not an extremely powerful wizard, but she feels she could be of SOME use.

((Not sure if this is for scenes or not! Would be great! Dying to play my new gal in combat!))

Juliana hears of this rumor and decides to ask around about it. The thought of more treasure makes Juli smile as she strides toward the Market to see what information she can round up about this.

As Vargach having been thoroughly through the Market in the last few weeks, he hears of this tale and starts to wonder if there is anyone he might talk into coming along on a trip to the Spine.

Once Ellyaun gets back into town and hears about this, she'll be interested in checking it out.

Milo hears the rumors that begin to fly and considers the stories about the Spine of the World he has heard all of his life. This one is not for him, but maybe work can be found escorting a train to the feet of the mountians and back. Yes, he will check out such job possiblities.

Magic, Treasure, possibility for some noteriety? Dydd likes the sounds of that, and so 'Darkblade' begins questioning a few 'questionable' sources as well as the general merchant population...

::Violet decides she enjoys life enough to let this one pass by. With a deep sigh she continues on with her studies, anxiously awaiting more opportunities::

Juliana asks around the market further about the find by the dwarfs. She thinks that the rumors about treasure being present are probably right on target, but swallows hard when she thinks about the large nail that was found. In light of this, Juli decides against making such a venture at this time, knowing that soon enough her advancement in the Selunite faith will bring her power enough to eventually tackle most anything. However, that time is not yet............
