The PC’s begin their tale at the Swordlord’s Rostov HQ. Each of them have answered the call by the Swordlord’s to explore and map out a section of the Stolen Lands. Given Andrei‘s father’s position as a Swordlord, the party was approved to explore the Greenbelt. After a night of drinking at the Lusty Unicorn, the PC’s set off for Oleg’s Trading Post in the morning.
After setting off early in the morning the PC’s arrived at Nivakta’s Crossing where the xenophobic guards dissuaded them from spending any time in the small town. Spending another day or so traveling the PC’s then found an abandoned fort where hunters and trappers have set up a small camp.
As the PC’s arrive at the fort they come upon three hunters who are about to be hanged for the charge of collaborating with bandits. Tess interrupted the execution, and with help from Walays, convinced the mob to let the hunters escape with their lives.
Following another day of travel the PC’s finally arrive at Oleg’s Trading Post and meet Oleg and his wife, Svetlana. After hearing about the extortion racket that the bandits were responsible for, the PCs began to plan an ambush for the bandits who were due to arrive any day to collect money for their ‘protection’.
Using a fouled wagon track, an illusory crossbow squadron, and a well placed entangle spell, the PCs made short work of the four bandits. Their leader was stabilized by Walker and tied up for later interrogation.
