Adventures in the Borderlands

Welcome to the Borderlands
session 0.5

After traveling the long trail from Gaelle, the heroes arrive in the lands of the Moot. They are introduced to some of the officers of the fort called Castle Hangknot (or in halfling, Caer Haegnant) and some of the important persons of the nearby town of Rivenbrook.

An adventurer named Quick-fingers Cobb offers to sell the PCs information about some old Andwynyon ruins that claimed the lives of his former crew-mates. He went to bed without striking a deal, and was found the next day dead and suspiciously cold. A search through his pack turned up (his?) severed fingers and a strange, opalescent ring. The PCs volunteer to find the source of the (possibly cursed) item.

Notes:

Prologue
session 0

At the home of a minor viscount in Tarbeau, in the nation of Gaelle, our heroes were approached by an old dragonborn paladin named Darahi, an ambassador from the Dragon Sultan. He asked that the characters investigate an old “haunted” mansion near his home. The mansion turned out to be the former home of a now-deceased wizard, obsessed with the elements of air and earth, and “haunted” by his former experimental subjects: a gang of dust mephits and a gargoyle. After dispatching the beasts, Darahi suggested that the PCs head north, to the borderlands, where the Alliance military had established an outpost near the border with the goblin empire of Ix.
