Heroes of a New Land

Session 1
Welcome to the party !

Summary:

Most of the time was spent finalizing characters and answering questions. The players established if they lived in Vanis or were just visiting etc. Aside from Ricar and Reklar who are half brothers no one knew each other.

The back story of the city was discussed. The kingdom of Alveros was at war with some barbarians from the north. A powerful wizard demanded peace and set a deadline. Peace was not reached and the wizard came and invoked a powerful spell that ripped the city of Vanis from the ground and transported it somewhere into a jungle environment. Since then, the city is in chaos. Many building collapsed and are in ruins. No one knows what’s happening. People have lost families and businesses. Looting is rampant. The streets are not safe anymore.

It’s three days after the sundering of Vanis. The players happened to be on a street one morning and a group of more brazen thugs broke through a window and went into a clothing store. They were pursued into the building by Ricar who tried to diffuse the situation. Reklar who was feeling a bit less tolerant let loose a bolt of magic and a fight broke out. From off the street a few passerbys joined the battle against the thugs. A variety of races a dwarf, an eladrin and an elf. The thugs were defeated and after the last body hit the floor we were out of time.

Eldak – Elven Ranger
Reklar – Human Warlock
Ricar – Half-elf Paladin
Sundrim – Dwarven Druid
Xavtumal – Eladrin Wizard

Session 2
Rebellion Rumors

Summary:
The party spoke with each other and were introduced to each other. They were removing the bodies of the thugs from the clothing store when they were stopped by some city guards, a rare presence in the streets since the sundering. Reklar was a bit mouthy and the guards were going to take him away but were talked out of it by the party. The party formally joined together for safety in numbers in the uncertain streets of Vanis. As the party progressed through the streets there was a lot of conversation about an announcement by King Stephen. The party passed a little time in a tavern and got to know each other a bit better. Eldak spent a little time following some rumors but didn’t seem to find anything more than a lot of people are unhappy with the king. The king came to the city square at the appointed time with a large showing of the guards and made an apology and an announcement. The announcement was a call to action to those loyal citizens to begin the cleanup process and stay out of trouble. Those willing to fight were to report to the constabulary. The party headed that way and when they arrived they were stopped by Jonas, an old guard friend of Ricar’s. He let the party know there was some serious threat of an actual rebellion. After a bit more talk, he left and then came back and had the party follow him into Castle Vanis. There they met with General Trypp who gave them a mission to complete. The intelligence he’s received seems to indicate a sort of headquarters for the more organized rebels. The general wants the party to recover documents being carried by messengers. The party took a little time and were able to track down the building and find a safe place to observe activities there. Late into the night, Eldak, the ranger, spotted a hint of movement from the building. From there the party was off after the shadowy figure. They had him trapped into an alleyway with Eldak’s bow trained on him when we ran out of time.
