When last we met our heroes, they had returned to Renin Falls, victorious from their battle with a local lich. They had rescued the town’s consultant, whom they had not been able to wake from his trance. They liased with Lord Shortwick who thanked them for their efforts and ordered his servants to care for the consultant.
On their way to the inn to rest, our heroes stopped to marvel at a bard who was playing in the streets. His playing awoke something within Chuck, who slept restlessly that night for the visions of his deceased father.
After a rest, the heroes checked the noticeboard in town once again and decided to look into the nearby temple to Bahamut. The priests there had been recently driven out by followers of Tiamat and the ecology in the area had suffered for it. On their way there, the team was beset by a family of boars. Chuck, convinced that the male was the reincarnation of his father, attempted to tame it, but to no avail – the boars would not halt their attack. On killing them, the group found a squeaker (young boar), which Chuck determined to truly be his reincarnated father and took with him.
On reaching the temple, the heroes faced a leech-ridden swamp, numerous dragonborn priests, a dark aura, a gauntlet of acidic gas, and lastly a young black dragon, before destroying the scepter that was the source of the curse affecting the area and Akra’s powers.
