Something about a caravan full of people. We crest the hill and see Greencrest burning with a dragon shadow over it. The cleric and paladin immediately jump off to do battle. Everyone follows but is left in the dust as the paladin runs full speed to the rescue.
Once in town we find some looters who attack on sight. They are defeated. A group of orphans with a cripple emerge from an alley with a woman fending off some kobolds. The paladin attacks immediately. We save them of course. The man is named Koff and requests we escort them to the keep.- On the way to the keep we ambush 3 humans and five kobolds pulling a cart of loot. Take the cart and continue towards keep. We avoid an ambush and continue. Five kids join us out of some garbage and take up slings to help. A bunch of adults are found in another house and duly armed as well.
Behind a wall we hear some wailing and decide to jump 3 raiders. Kill two and one runs away. We save a man and beckon him with us. Then we make it into the keep like heroes. Once inside the keep we are sent to the mayor. Older guy, late forties, arm in a sling and bandages on head. Mayor Nighthill. He asks us to help more villagers and we agree. He tells us that Leena the Cleric can help heal us. Astalon Astabert is the Master of the Keep who might have more info for us. There is a Temple of Chauntee to the SE to save. Armory is opened to us and we grab some gear. —
We head out a secret tunnel and get attacked by rat swarms. Double locks in tunnel, have some difficulty with both but get through without leaving way open behind us. We make it to the Temple without incident. There we find a bunch of troops battering their way into the Temple and we ambush them. The priest opens the door and tells us there was pounding on the back door too. From around the side of the church arrive three dozen baddies and we run in and lock the door.
Inside we dump furniture around the doors and then open the backdoor to let baddies filter in as we defeat them in detail. The fire they lit there against the door doesn’t do much to anyone. We kill a blob of dudes and then close the door again.
