The Ruins of Sil

Scandal at the Soiree
In which the plot thickens

The Ground-Breaking party begins with a speech from the host, and an explanation of the events to come over the next three days. The event will kick off with a formal ball and feast, and be followed the next day with a hunt. The final day will see the Duels of Honor, a closing feast, and the masquerade.

During the initial feast, Rive gets challenged to a duel by a quarrelsome bodyguard of his stepmother, Lynnvicta sets about charming the most popular young lordling at the event, and Uly turns his noble but unwanted amorous advances on a halfling serving girl.

Towards the end of the evening, they end up at the table of Bala Briagorn‘s older brother Kaas Briagorn. He has suspicions about the safety of his brother’s construction project, and offers to pay the heroes to confirm or deny his suspicions. They will need to return by the end of the party to deliver their verdict.

Everyone decides that a good night’s rest is in order, and they make their way to their rooms. Midway through the night, Lynnvicta is awakened by the gentle embrace of someone trying to smother her with a pillow. She quickly buries a dagger in her assailant, who’s shriek brings people running. The assailant is a young noblewoman, driven mad with envy at the attention Lynnvicta was getting from Nolen Kevel. She remains quiet about being stabbed in exchange for Lynn forgetting about the attempted murder.

To The Mines!
In which the goblin menace is annuled

The newly formed goblin eradication team makes a hasty exit from Madam O’s (walking away during one of Bala’s long-winded tales), hot on the trail of the goblin raiders. They make their descent into the thatch where they are joined by Lynnvicta, another victim of the goblin’s smash and grab tactics.

The group trails the goblins down into an upper layer of the mines, where Rive cleverly disarms two hastily erected traps with his face. After the fighting force of the goblins is crushed and Bala Briagorn‘s signet ring (and Lynnvicta’s picks!) are recovered, everyone returns to the surface.

Overjoyed with the return of his ring, Bala Briagorn Invites the group to a ground-breaking celebration he is throwing as guests of honor. The party accepts, and gladly take him up on his offer of a hot bath and fresh clothes.

The Ruins of Sil: The Adventure Begins!
In which the adventure begins

It’s an normal night at Madam O’s Cantina. All of the regulars are more or less there: Architect Bala Briagorn, Madam O and her staff, local drunks, pimps, pushers, as well as regular folks done with a hard day’s work. The calm of the evening is interrupted by a goblin raid.

The goblins are defeated fairly easily, as they are poor climbers and cowards at heart, but they do make off with a number of valuables. Architect Briagorn, upset with the attack on his lands and subjects, immediately hires some of the more capable patrons of Madam O’s: Anell, Ulyvanvandace and Rive. He puts them to the task of ridding his land of the goblins, and recovering his family signet ring that was stolen in the attack.
