Way back at some point in 2014, we ran our first session, which included Nick, Zach, and Ted (whose characters I will link when they are added to the campaign page). Each character ended up in a mining labor camp, after being captured by cloaked figures in Blackmount. After some quick witted actions by Wrench, the camp exploded into a fit of chaos, which saw Zach’s character (whose name escapes me) flee into the northern forest with most of the goblins in pursuit.
The general assumption is that this character was the sacrificial lamb, which now allows the party to continue unabated toward their next goal. We left as the numerous prison workers were freed from the chains holding them to their work tents. As such, the party will find three other characters (Nick, Trevor, and Zach’s new character), who are seeking to avenge their capture and reclaim their lost items.
