The Keeper's Cage

The Dwarven Mine

After the heros slide down out of the tunnle they find them selves in an erriely quiet ine tat show all the signs of fairly recien use. Ever burning tourches are spread about teh area sparingly mostly in areas that are also stacked with tools for digging. the mine is for the most part empty but ther is fresh water and air. For teh most part the hearos are simply happy to be out of the tunnle. they search the area and get a drink befor finding a storage building the dwarves seem to have used as a barricks for sleepng and eating. finding th area abaondone exept for a few rats and bats they bed down for some rest after securring the sleeping area. the next morning they explore a bit more and find a few crates in the water. they are marked as being dangerous yet teh heros open the any way and release two gouls that are quickly dispatched. after another short rest they begin looking for an area ro escape the ine and as thy aproach a previously unsearched area they disturb a young black dragon that had returned late in the night from hunting outside. After being initialy caught off guard the heroes battle diligetly against teh beast and eventualy take it down. upon the death of teh beast one of the pary begins setting about skinning teh dragons hide.

Under The Boundry

After saving the Tefling woan she lead the heros to the hoe of a old Gnome sorceres that lived along teh edge of the great boundry. The boundry was known to all that ever ventured to the edge of any nation as teh Boundrys were al acrose teh lands some were larger than others but they were ever constant reinders of ancent times. Teh Boundrs were created my ancient wizards as a means of difence to keep waring nations seperated. the were physical manifestations of the Shadowfell. These magical borders were dangerous in the extrea as they covered many achers in and were teaming with the undead and otehr fell creatures. passage through them was suicide so to past, one had to use a portal, fly over, or go under. The old Gnome had forseen the arrival of teh heros and had been prepairing for quite soe time. she had placed her home here for she know that long ago when teh boundrys were first placed that some smuglers had dug out a tunnle to sneek goods across. she had been waiting the arrival of teh heros and had also been intertaining a visitor from teh boundry that was looking for a creature that had escaped to this side. when te heros arrive they are introduced and given a short time to rest but once they begin to explain there story and the fate of the tieflind they are interuped by eh sounds of an intruder. moving tto teh back of the house they spot a darkone that had been listening in on their conversation. The ranger fro the boundry recognised the creature as his quarry. the darkone took off an rushed to teh boundry racing in to report back to his superiors. the old gnome urged the heros to give chace and stop him. She gave them supplies and showed them to the tunnle so that they could attempt to catch the beast. Entering the tunnle they spoted hi and attempted to catch hi as they raced throug teh tunnle. they were able to chace teh beast down a side tunnle only to see it get swallowed by a section of weak floor and disapear in to a deep dark pit. due to the cealing being mostly exposed they were continualy attacked by minnins of teh undead lured to teh tunnle by the sent of life. the shadowfell did not respondwell to teh actions of a clearic attempting to turn teh udeadand often retaliated with the wails of the damed that drove heros to the floor in pain. Halfway through teh tunne the heros found teh remails of a hobgoblin theif that has died in teh tunnle attepting to ferry several magical wepons under the boundry. The heros were offen urged on to the other side by the teifling woman who seemed ever eager to be away from teh side o teh boundry where the goblins had taken her. and the heros to were eager to leave the goblin lands behind. coming to the edege of the tunnle the were met with a cavein theat gave way to a traped floor that dropped them in to a dwarven mine.


heros wake up in dank jail cells. the y have been here for days or has it been weeks. some have been here longer than others. They have been snatched and taken from all over one at a time. they have been brought here for the amusement of some darker force. the jailors are goblins and hobgoblins that treat them little better than cattle. they are forceded to fight each otehr and a collection of beasts that teh goblins have been able to capture. the true numbers that are being held are unknown as little canbe sen from the cells and they are blindfolded befor they are taken to teh arena. the layout of the facility is limited and each only knows his way to and from his cell. on a day that was much like any other since their arrival something truely unexpected occured. thewalls of teh prision shook and the goblins began to panic. the prision was under attack from an unknown force and the prisioners took full atvantage of the confusion. There as a massive jail break as the goblins franticly tried to deal with the colosal gold dragon that was attacking the prision as if by chance. those that looked out the window saw a clutch of kobalds scamping upon te dragons back and they seemed as if this was natural. the dragon thn struck the prison and took a secton of the wall out shortly there after a olderlooking humanoid ran out along the dragons arm and took up a possition amongst the kobalds on the dragons back and te beast took to the air again. durring the histaria the heros where able to kill several guards including the warden and steal weapons and armor from the storrooms and what little of ther personal possetions still remained. Upon making i to teh surface they discovered that they were ain a decilate an unforgiving landscape at teh crest of a lage cliff face overlooking a vast ocean. To the other side loming on the horission were dark and ominus clouds. Though truely anything would be better than waiting for the goblins to regain there composure and come out looking for them. Traversing the landscape was forethe ost part un eventfull and little was seen exept teh occational fire bettle. the tereain was for the most part featureless and barren save teh occational jutting stone pillar. along the way teh herros encountered a patrole of hobgoblins escorting a Tiefling prissoner. the slew the guards a nd freed the prisioner that offered to take them to soe one that could get them to safety.
