Session 1: Into the mix

The Story

Many years ago a group of heroes came through the border regions of western Aelargo and cleared out a den of orcs and a number of rather unsavory evil creatures. In the process, they also discovered a legendary ancient keep where a group of humans and elves held off a large force of orcs. The keep was long abandoned, but a dark wizard had been using it as a base for her plans to take over the neighboring country of Nasur.   The heroes discovered the monstrous plans. In a long year of battles, they eventually captured the evil wizard and cleared the keep and area of monsters. The border station the heroes used as their base had attracted a number of settlers and guild journey-folk. A knight of Llino was granted the lands by the Aelargo Regents and brought more tradesfolk to the growing community. The knight had the roads shifted to pass by the keep thus making the famous keep the center of the community and his home. With the keep reoccupied, Sendel Road became a safe trade route for goods moving east and west between Nasur and Aelargo.   The Sendel community now has a walled township around the legendary Sendel Keep. Small but regular caravans travel the Sendel road moving goods between Aelargo and Nasur.   Many of the warriors and the knight who now owns the keep left to join the Nhia-Samri War with the Duianna Alliance. Most of the warriors did not return from the war and the knight was badly wounded. Although he is still able to ride he is not able to fight. With this weakening of the defenders, raiders have moved into the area. Highway thefts, raids on outlying communities, and full-scale thievery have increased to the point the knight sent out a call for help.   Our heroes, having been working together for a few years know that such a small out-of-the-way keep would not attract the brightest or best defenders. In fact, they feel that if something isn't done soon the keep might be taken by one of the stronger raider groups. Although not on a major trade route, the keep does support trade and has a promising future, if those that serve it and protect the lands remain true.   This is a true opportunity for many adventurers to make a name for themselves and possibly even join the ranks of the Daggers or Duianna Guard. At the minimum, the few caravan masters that travel that route will be appreciative if the route is made safe once again.
