The following posts will be a series on the newest D&D campaign that I started DMing. They will be the story as it happens in the world of Ethos and its inhabitants. The focus will be on 4 main players in the campaign, each of which has distinct personalities and goals. Sometimes there will be back-story posts to fill the reader in on something important, but overall things will be written down as they happen in each session. Enjoy!
A new adventure has started with a mismatched group of heroes that had found themselves in the same place at the same. It all starts in a small inn in the town of Yale. A town that has recently been plagued by mysterious disappearances of villagers and strange shapes at night. The daughter of the local Baron, Evelyn, has stepped up and offered a 50gp reward to anyone who can put a stop to the strange events. Her father, Baron Brianus, does not believe her or the towns people’s cries for help and instead hides in his manor.
A local inn welcomed 4 new faces one chilly evening, a large dark half-orc with the name of Blaargh, a suspicious and untrusting half-elf named Myriin, an eccentric wizard named Azkaban and a innocent looking halfling named Ander.
Due to Blaargh’s large nature he has immediately scared some of the inn’s customers away. Reluctantly though the bartender, Brandon, lets him stay and drink and eat. He became curious about the half-elf sitting nearby and decided to bring over a mug of ale. Myriin however was not so welcoming due to his hatred of orcs as his mother had been in killed in a orc raid in his childhood.
Amongst some unpleasant conversations between the two they notice that the local inn door started producing a strange light. The bartender becomes nervous at the sight as it glows brightly in the dark night. The customers at the inn are thoroughly scared and run out, disregarding the strange nature of the door and bust through it to get out. In the open doorframe now stands what looks like a child.
The bartender has had enough and orders the kid to leave, however he walks in and announces that he is a man. The bartender does not believe him and yells for him to leave. Blaargh however announces that it is his son and has him sit at his table with Myriin. Defeated, the bartender bring over food and drinks. At the sight of Blaargh, Ander is intrigued by what he is and his scars around his face. He asks about his background and why he is so ugly. He goes so far as to attempt to cure his wounds, however nothing changes about the half-orcs appearance. They chatter on for a few more hours until they rent a room for the night and go to sleep.
On to day 2!
