Set out from Winterhaven, heading south to find the missing archaeologist Douvian Staul. Our tiefling warlock drank a bit too much mead in the common room last night, so we left her in the inn to recover.
Just south of the town gates we ran into a kobold party at the crossroads, laying in wait. Thorn’s scouting ahead of the party detected them before the ambush. We slew the party, resulting in the following gains:
- a bone mask, shaped to look like a dragon
- 3 dragonscale shields
- a dragon figurine necklace, etched with the symbol of Orcus
- 5 gp, 23 sp
- 125 xp
Once we reached the dragon burial site, we engaged a group of henchmen, a gnome rogue, two drakes, and a projection of the priest Kethelas. Defeating them, we found Douvian tied up; we healed him, looted the corpses and headed back towards Winterhaven.
Results from the second skirmish:
- small crate containing an ancient mirror
- Douvian’s amulet: +1 amulet of health (fort, refl, will), +5 vs poison
- 65 gp, 13 sp
- 135 xp
