It all began with a call for adventurers. The town of Argshire was in dire need of heroes. A paladin named Orn, Aelemar the griffon knight (with Luft as the griffon), the ranger Nadeem, and a bizarre schizophrenic yuan-ti named Sissay answered the call. The town’s mayor, a dwarf named Thorg Steelfoot had asked the rookie adventurers to guard the town’s valuable hops and barley fields in preparation for the year’s harvest. In doing so, the adventurers fended off an attack by goblins who attempted to burn the fields. Investigating further, the adventurers moved into the nearby forest, going after a goblin survivor. They found a cave filled with more goblinoids, led by a bugbear. After slaying the goblinoids, the adventurers found that the goblins were mercenaries, paid off by a well-to-do-lord in an attempt to weaken and distract the town of Argshire.
