Story So Far[edit]

1495 Neverwinter

It is 1495 and Neverwinter is rebuilding itself. The temple to Ilmater receives refugees and helps them find their feet. Brother Clement in particular is an almost saintly figure so it is hard for the party to refuse when he asks them to seek a long-lost paladin of Ilmater named Belmir.

Belmir was last seen several decades ago in a village called Oakhurst, a day's travel inland, in the company of an elf named Hesterien. This fellow was investigating draconic cults, something of which Brother Clement evidently disproves.

It is almost midsummer and the group travel inland for half a day to Oakhurst. There, they install themselves in the local temple, hosted by the gnome Dem Nackle.


They learn from Dem Nackle that she did indeed see Belmir all those years ago, but so far as she knows he was alone. He travelled to a place nearby called the Sunless Citadel.

They also learn also that the goblins that live in the Sunless Citadel sell a magic healing apple in Oakhurst every suimmer solstice.

There is a small group of armed men from Helm also staying at the temple. They bear an insignia of an eye.

They meet a local merchant named Kerowyn Hucrele whose (adult) children went missing recently in the Sunless Citadel. She offers a reward to find them.

The next morning the group travels to the Sunless Citadel (on the Old Road that goes to the dwarven city of Gauntlgrym), arriving around midday.

Sunless Citadel

The group descends a rope down a ravine. They then go down some stairs and find the citadel that has fallen almost intact down the ravine.

Within are dead goblins and giant rats.

They meet a crying kobold, Meepo, who has lost his charge, a young dragon named Calcryx.

He takes them to Queen Yusdrayl, chief of the kobolds, who offers them a reward if they can recover the wyrmling that the goblins took in a raid.

Meepo leads them towards the goblins. They are attacked by some giant rats. They find a human corpse, bearing a ring with the name Karakas, the ranger who accompanied the Hucrele children.

In a stand-off, they meet the goblin Flimflam. They learn more of Belak the tree man who has the tree with the magic apple. Also of Durnn, the goblin chieftain that Flimflam does not like and Flimflam´s mother, the clan shaman.

Flimflam shows them the room next door where the wyrmling is. They also learn from her of a big hairy brute called Balsag who lives on a lower level.

The wyrmling immediately kills Meepo (no love lost there) but is then beaten unconscious by the party.

They drag the dragon back to the kobold Queen. they obtain a reward and the keys to a draconic temple complex near the entrance.

They make their way through the draconic temple complex, eventually coming across a troll, actually a corrupted elven dragonpriest from another age. They kill that and take its stuff.
