The party began its long trek to the burgeoning kingdom of Eaerlann. Traveling north from Evereska, they skirt the edge of lands openly loyal to the Netherese empire. Meriele has taken it upon herself during this time to study the Book of Veles using her newly acquired glasses. She hopes to augment her arcane talents with those outlined in the tome.
(Warlock multi-class. Let me know what pact you plan on taking. Don’t forget that the Forgotten Realms campaign setting has a Shadow pact.)
After 400 miles of travel, the caravan turns west and enters the Far Forest. While the woods were once considered part of the Eaerlann empire, all that remains of it now are copses of large hollow trees providing shelter to many denizens, both natural and fey.
The caravan scouts pick up signs that an orc raiding party is quickly approaching. The wagons circle up to provide protection for those incapable of joining in the combat. Shortly after, the first roaring bellows can be heard as orc raiders burst from the tree line to attack the defensively prepared convoy.
