On the Shores of Vax'Rodan

The Party Gathers

As night began to fall on the village of Wavecrest, Trist, Flax, and Tordek made their way into town carrying the unconscious form of Tsav to the nearest Healer’s House. Parting ways for the evening, Trist made her way to the quiet little Sandy Shores Tavern and Inn where she met Bangor and Bilma Forgehammer, the proprietors. Hearing of their problems with their business from Orben, the only real regular they have, she decided to assist in exchange for room and board.
Upon hearing of the plight of her compatriot, Tsav, Orben enlisted the help of Father Mackenzie from the town temple, and after a rude greeting at the hands of the Acolyte Victor at the temple, set off to the Healer’s House to assist in his healing.
Arriving at the Healer’s House, Orben’s attempt to practice his divine magics in his drunken stupor upon Tsav went quite well, all things considered. His healing energies spilled over from Tsav and imparted healing upon a nearby Dragonborn named Cyranius as well.
After this, Trist and her merry band decided to return to the Sandy Shores while Cyranius remained at the Healer’s House. On their way back to the inn, the party was ambushed by some local members of “The Guild” for what seemed to Orben to be a routine shakedown. The newcomers, however, were less accommodating. Combat ensued and blood was shed, but no one died thanks to quick thinking on Trist’s part, as she put the majority of the Guilders to sleep and the party made a quick escape to the Inn.
The next morning, while the larger group was deciding what to do over breakfast, having been reunited with Flax who had also boarded at the Sandy Shores for the night, Cyranius made his way to the Marshal Station to retrieve his confiscated weapon. There he met head Marshall Talorian Ardor’e and heard of the kidnapping of the child of one of the members of the Captains’ Congress, Krisiries Urthadar, by cloaked figures in the night. Accepting this quest, Cyranius set off to find Captain Urthadar and render whatever aid he could.
Deciding more information about this tyranical Guild was needed, the rest of the group headed to a local shop for some supplies before wanting to head to what they’d heard was a local Guild hotspot, the Pregnant Seahorse.
While shopping for their wares at the Gilded Stay, Flax managed to offend a patron, the shopkeeper, Henry Forthwright, and mountain-of-a-man guild leader Hadrek, who came into the shop to exact his “guild tax” on Henry. Flax’s shenanigans cost Henry DOUBLE TAX and his finest countertop, but after a kindness from Orben, the counter was fixed and Henry helped set the group straight on exactly “how things worked” in Wavecrest. He explained that there were two people who led the Guild in town, Hadrek was the brawn, but Niana was the brains. She ran the Pregnant Seahorse tavern in the marina district. Armed with this new information, the group decided maybe they needed a little more muscle of their own, and went to seek out the Dragonborn they had met the day previously.
Knowing that he had needed to go to the Marshal Station, they inquired after him there, but when they met with the head Marshal, Orben had another idea. He told the Marshal that he had found a group that would help him to get rid of his problem with the Guild once and for all! The others balked at this idea, and the Marshal, too, was skeptical, but he did tell them where they could find the Dragonborn, should they choose to assist in the matter of the kidnapped child. The party thanked him for his help and set off to find one who they hoped would help them in their efforts in the village.
