Heroes of Laketown

The Black Knight

06/10-06/26, 1642

The citizens of Oakmead hire the party to get rid of a knight, actually four identical knights, that are barring the only road into their village. Following leads and local rumors the party recovers a set of swords from a haunted cave complex. The ancestors of the village stole these from the knights’ ancestors decades earlier when those knights died protecting the village from an evil wizard. The villagers know about this, but don’t tell the party until the end.

The knights get the swords and leave in peace.

The Jarlack Affair

03/28-03/30, 1642

Heading to Esgaroth from Ulgarstat, the party stumbles across a war between two mages, Jarlack and Andoven. The two fight over an ancient tome called The Book of the Dead. Andoven dies in front of the party, leaving them a crystal pendant “key” to the tome. Jarlack sends mercenaries to retrieve the key, but they fail and befriend the party instead.

Felkik sees Orlif in town and learns that he is Jarlack’s apprentice. Trying to follow, Felkik ends up fighting him and leaving him for dead in an alley. Later, they find Jarlack’s castle on their own and attempt to steal the tome, but are captured.

They escape with the mercenaries’ help and kill Jarlack on their way out. Orlif, not actually dead, escapes with the tome and the crystal.
