The party had taken an escort job to help a merchant get his wares to the bustling trade city of Endhome. The merchant Thagen thought that perhaps taking Fools Pass would be a great short cut and take days off the trip. It wasn’t long into the trip that the party came upon a few hobgoblins who had waylaid a traveling merchant brewer who was delivering his casks of ale to Rosko’s Inn on the outskirts of Endhome. The party quickly dispatched the Hobgoblins and rescued the Dwarven merchant whose name was Thron Brewerman. His ale was safe and as a reward he gave to the party a treasure map that seemed to lead to one of the many caves in the Duskmoon Hills.
After chatting a bit with their new friend the party continued on Fools Pass till they arrived at a suitable location to set camp and rest for the night. Along the way the party took note of a 60 ft tower south of Fools Pass which Thagen informed them that the tower was a mystery, with no known entrance or exit, windows or doors. the party also found what appeared to have once been a a pair of solid wooden doors covering the entrance to a cave in the Duskmoon Hills. The doors now lay broken and hanging. tattered Orc banners were strewn along the path. When they questioned Thagen he said he thought that the orcs had once established a colony in lost and forgotten city beneath the ground. The Lost City of Barakus.
After making camp the night sky soon became alive with the sound of huge wings approaching as a dire bat swooped in attacking the party. With quick thinking and some mighty blows the dire bat was soon laid to rest. In the morning Thron headed out on his own and bid the party farewell.
After breaking camp the party continued eastward till they came to a fork in the road with a large tower nearly 80 ft tall and 40 ft wide beside it. The tower seemed inviting and the party knocked on the door. A human male answered and introduced himself as the alchemist Jimmy Dean. The party inquired about potions and items for sale and ended up making a deal to investigate a ruined tower to the south called Quarrions Tower in exchanged for two powerful healing potions.
The party then continued south and eventually arrived at Rosko’s Inn only to find a half elf in leather armor being held at gunpoint by three men outside the inn.
