Goblin assassins and leapin' lizards

Abadius 1, 4715 AR, Sandpoint

Ameiko Kaijitsu and Sandru Vhiski travel to Magnimar in order for Ameiko to obtain liquor supplies for the coming year. Shalelu Andosona meanwhile is investigating reports of increased goblin activity along the Lost Coast Road. Kenneth Whiteoak and Abraxus the Athlete are asked to watch the Rusty Dragon, and keep a sharp eye on Ameiko’s new cook, whom she suspects of stealing.

The party decides to celebrate Zaphendrius “Zap” Aladroxan‘s birthday, with Ameiko’s blessing, at the Rusty Dragon. Meanwhile, Daniyor Jal Raxease learns that there has been some trouble with goblins along the lost coast road. Specially she learned from a local at the Pixie’s Kitten, that the Licktoad tribe of goblins have obtained fireworks, and they’re using them to attack merchant caravans. Three days earlier, some adventurers came into town after the goblin bounty and went looking for them, but haven’t been heard from since.

The birthday celebration came to an abrupt end, with the high-pitched shrieks of Frank, a local cobbler, running down the stairs being attacked by lizards. The party later learned that some goblins who had snuck into town looking for Shalelu Andosona, to collect a bounty on her head, had set loose the lizards from Shalelu’s private collection. Still more lizards dropped out of the rafters onto the PCs and chaos ensued for several rounds ending with 3 dead lizards, and 5 recaptured, primarily by Abraxus and Daniyor.

Upon investigation, the party discovered the body of the suspicious cook, who had his throat slit by a goblin kukri blade. When they were searching his body, they found a faded green tattoo of a scorpion on his chest. Luke Moonsong recognized this as a slaver’s guild tattoo for the Jade Scorpions, the very same slaver scum who kidnapped his sister!

Zap saw the bloody goblin boot print on the window sill, and just as Stuart turned to sound the alarm, 3 goblin assassins appeared. In the ensuing fight, Stuart was gutted and dropped to the ground (twice). Meanwhile, Abraxus clubbed one goblin to death, Dani fell down a trapdoor only to return and get the killing blow on another goblin after Kenneth slit the throat of the goblin harassing both of them.

After the fight, Zap pointed out that these goblins were Monkey Goblins, a particularly nasty breed from a nearby tropical island, who are usually in league with or even members of, the Red Mantis assassin’s guild. On the goblin’s corpses, they found a wanted poster which Zap translated. On one side was a crude drawing of Shalelu with a bounty out for her death (and only her death) signed by some kind of goblin chief (the linguistics skill only gets you so far). On the back was an even cruder drawing of Kenneth, and a bounty for him alive and delivered to the Jade Scorpions. The drawing of Kenneth was more recent than the one of Shalelu.

Prelude
A brief history of recent events in Sandpoint

Five years before our adventure begins, the town of Sandpoint was beset by goblins who attempted to burn down the town’s cathedral. Thanks to quick actions of several, now legendary, town heroes, the city was saved from the goblin assault and the cathedral itself still stands.

Goblin attack 2

At the time, there were several tribes of goblins in the area, lead by different goblin chieftains. Today, only the Licktoad Goblins remain. Little is known about the Licktoads, save that their new chieftain hates and resents humans, and that they seem to make their home in the soggy marsh to the southwest.

Shalelu Andosona often patrols the less settled roads to the south, and serves as the de facto warden of Sandpoint. She played a pivotal role in warning the heroes about the goblin attack and her warning saved the town from destruction.

Welcome to your Adventure Log!
A blog for your campaign

Every campaign gets an Adventure Log, a blog for your adventures!

While the wiki is great for organizing your campaign world, it’s not the best way to chronicle your adventures. For that purpose, you need a blog!

The Adventure Log will allow you to chronologically order the happenings of your campaign. It serves as the record of what has passed. After each gaming session, come to the Adventure Log and write up what happened. In time, it will grow into a great story!

Best of all, each Adventure Log post is also a wiki page! You can link back and forth with your wiki, characters, and so forth as you wish.

One final tip: Before you jump in and try to write up the entire history for your campaign, take a deep breath. Rather than spending days writing and getting exhausted, I would suggest writing a quick “Story So Far” with only a summary. Then, get back to gaming! Grow your Adventure Log over time, rather than all at once.
