After arriving in Mossyrock separately the party all found themselves in the Fallen Log tap house. Ovaino Blackwit used his impressive gambling skills to deprive the local patrons of their hard earned coin. He quickly discovered that his winnings were all that he had left after Kithri Proutfeet stole his coin purse. The stout soldier Hennik Irontomb was relaxing into a mug of ale after a long days march and Helo Halcyon was questioning the towns caretaker, Saggick, about elven ruins near Kazdan.
Mention of Kazdan caught the attention of Kithri and Ovaino who quickly joined in Saggick’s interrogation. The group learned about and old gift shop in the center on town that was sealed up after Kazdan errupted. The three left the Fallen Log to explore with Hennik following to keep them out of trouble.
Just as they were about to open the gift ship a dragon flew out of the sky and destroyed the clock tower in the town’s courtyard. Immediately after the courtyard was filled with a thick white fog. Lost in the fog the party was attacked by a pair of elven barbarians from the southern woods. During the fight the teleportation circle at the base of the clock tower lit up and produced a group of kobolds. The kobolds ignored the adventurers and headed inside the gift shop. After quickly finding what they were after the Kobolds fled using the teleportation circle. Helo witnessed an elven wild woman signal a withdrawal and soon the town fell into silence.
The small lumber town of Mossyrock was completely destroyed by the savage elves. The only survivors other than the party were Saggick and one of Hennik’s soldiers. Saggick explained that the clocktower was enchanted to prevent the unauthorized use of the teleportation circle. With it destoyed anyone could use the circle but only from its pairs at Sentinel and Kazdan. Given that the kobolds couldn’t have come from Sentinel and that the elves might have been working with the Dragonkin, the party decided to travel the old road to Kazdan for revenge and answers.
As they were preparing to depart a halfling women arrived and informed the party that the dragonkin were digging into the ruins at Kazdan. This explained why they attacked the town; inside the gift shop were detailed maps of the city and mountain of Kazdan from before the erruption; invaluable items if searching the ruins for something.
On the road the party met Talindra, the elven wild woman who led the attack against Mossyrock. She explained that the dragonkin captured their tribes keeper and were using him as leverage to manipulate her people. She wants the party to help her liberate her tribe from the dragonkin. The party hesitantly agreed to investigate the situation.
Helo and Ovaino took a side trip to small ruin along the road. They found an abandoned building similar to Mossyrock’s town center. Inside was a shrine to the Feywild; a relic of the Kenesara Nation. Helo and Ovaino each took a branch off of the dead sacred tree within the shrine.
The party is now less than a day away from the ruins of Fys Alari; A ruined elven city on Kazdan’s mountain side. Talindra claims that her people are being held there.
