20 Long Night 3278,
In the middle of a dark, rainy night Sloan Gunariwas awakened by a knock at the door. Sloan is a warrior, trained from birth as a gift to Varecian Dallahnt, the local lord (who also happens to be the King of Ascamae and the Emperor of Calderi). The person at his door was a young woman in elegant clothing. She brushed passed him. And it took a second for Sloan to realize it was the Princess Farakhel Dallahnt. She demanded assistance with getting to Zel’ Evara, the capitol of ascamae. Sloan suggested acquiring the assistance of Landral Domicile, a local ratfolk engineer whose work with explosives sets him apart from others in the region, and Karth, a human assassin trained in the use of Waveswords.
After enlisting the aid of the other two, Farakhel insists upon going south along the shortest route. However, the party was stopped by a group of mercenaries posing as Ascamae Legionaries. After killing the mercenaries, the team asked Fara why she was leaving in the middle of the night. She told them her family was killed and she needed to get to the capitol as soon as possible. The party decided that going north through the mountains may be a safer path if the people attempting to kill her had set up ambushes along the path.
Following the Pontus river, the party is attacked by goblins after A day of traveling, then after another full day they spot a ruined Town. They approached the ruins and were attacked by a camp full of orcs. When they killed the orcs, they collapsed, exhausted in a pack of trees outside of the ruins.
