The Story Begins

A summary of the first story arc that brought the adventurers together.

Here is a summary of the first story arch for the campaign.

Alphonse and Flarr En’Shae traveled to Holmfirth in hopes of selling a few trinkets from and archeological dig and a chance for more jobs. They booked a room at The Reckless Gentleman inn, ran by Videl Wakeman. Christoff Redfield and Helana met on they way where eventually met up with the rest of the adventurers.

Over the course of the next few weeks they had variety of adventures: dealing with lose animals, participating in gladiatorial matches, traveling to a ruined prison for Asterbaun Rane, even saving Jayden von Aldwin. Sir Christoff joined the local city watch under Tobias Pearlton, after proving himself to the rest of the city council. They also managed to save Relton’s daughter from a deal with a hag.

Over the course of these adventures, the party discovered a growing problem within the city. A thieves guild had popped up and joined with a cult. After several deadly encounters with both organizations, the reckless gentleman investigated more about them. They sought information from both Rane and Oogle. With Rane and Tobias’ help they located the thieves den, West Rider Inn. While the party ventured out to deal with them, Oogle sought more information from an old friend on the cult. While the party was at West Rider Inn the cult betrayed the thieves guild, sending fiends to slaughter everyone in the inn. The party successfully cleared out the inn and discovered several heretical writings which they turned over to Oogle. After being cleared they called a meeting with the counsel of Holmfirth, there they presented what they had found about the cult and expressed their fear that they were summoning more fiends underneath the city. Around this time Oogle said he had found more information on the cult, or to be more precise his friend did. Taithleach appeared and gave them information on the cult, what their plans were and even what types of devils and daemons were among them. After much discussion it was decided that they must press into the sewers to eliminate this cult and stop them from summoning more fiends. Each counsel member offered their support and assistance.

The Reckless Gentleman and their allies delved deep into the sewers to root out this evil cult. They all entered from various points to try and take them by surprise, but the cult was ready for them.The Reckless Gentleman were separated from the rest before encountering an unlikely ally, a nothic named Olec. He revealed to the company that the cult had betrayed him and had been holding him prisoner. He offered his aide to help them in exchange for returning to Plutoria. He then led them through the labyrinthian sewers to where the fiends were being summoned. The adventurers continued into that room where they encountered a spiked devil that was summoning more of his kind with the help of a mysterious orb. The party fought and eventually slew him stopping the incursion. They took the orb and gave it to Tobias who in turn handed it over to Rane. They were then gifted the West Rider Inn.
