The PCs entered Wrafton’s Inn and were greeted with a smile by its proprietor and owner Salvana Wrafton.
The PCs looked around and noticed several people relaxing in the inn:
An old farmer was drinking merrily at the bar speaking to a scholarly man seated beside him.
At corner table noble man sat alone sipping his beer.
And by the window sat a rough looking elf
who appeared to be some sort of tracker or hunter.
The PCs tried to speak to Ninaran
the tracker elf, but she was not interested in any conversation at the time. She just sat quietly sipping her drink and staring out the window, possibly lost in thought.
The PCs spoke to Eilian the Old
and asked him if he knew anything of Douven Staul
. Eilian replied: “You knew Douven? I always wondered what happened to him! He had questions about the old burial site southwest of the village. Thought a dragon might be buried there! I told him it was probably just an old trash heap, but he wouldn’t hear of it, no sir! Well, of course I gave him directions to the place. I am something of a historian of the area, you know! Oh yes, Douven! Well, he took my directions, and we haven’t seen him since. I do hope the poor man is all right!”
. Eilian penned a small map showing the way to the “burial site”. He knew nothing else of Douven’s fate, or the nature
of the site itself—Eilian never visited the location, he just knows of it from old hunters’ tales. The map Eilian provided would be sufficient to find the burial site.
The PCs spoke to Salvana Wrafton
and asked about the creatures that attacked them on the way to the village. She replied: “Kobolds! Those buggers are braver all the time! Lord Padraig would probably be interested in hearing your story. He’s been trying to get the militia to clear out those vermin for the last few months with no success.”
The PCs spoke the Lord Padraig
who was in the inn having a beer. They told him about the Kobold attack on King’s Road
. He replied that he needed help in dealing with the recent Kobold threat, but that he couldn’t justify sending anyone to their death. Perhaps if the PCs prove themselves by rescuing Douven Staul
he might agree to let them help.
The PCs arranged for lodging for the night at the inn.
