Adventures of the Kobolds

The kobolds gather allies

The kobolds decide to sell some of their loot to Jeren, the doppleganger merchant. While selling off their loot, Jeren tells them about a group of Kobolds in the hills that have recently had a dragon move into the area and they are worshiping it now. The group decides to head over their and see this dragon.

Once they get their they meet the leader of the tribe and he takes them to the cave where the dragon has made its home. They are suspicious from the start as none of the kobolds have seen the actual dragon. They have seen tracks and scrorched trees but not the actual dragon.

While looking over the tracks, they notice that their are booted foot prints that have been partially wiped out. They decide to leave the cursed items they have as “gifts” for the dragon and return the next day and see if they can get whatever is actually inside the cave to use those items and have to tell the truth.

When they return the next day they find out that whoever was inside the cave, has left. They go into the cave and find the device used to make the dragon prints and a huge horn that was used to make it sound like a loud voice speaking from the cave. They find some tracks of 4 booted feet outside the cave and follow those tracks. It takes them the better part of the night to follow the tracks to their owners.

They find 4 gnomes camped out and talking about having to leave as one of them got a cursed item. The group waits for the gnomes to go to sleep and then they sneak into the camp and take out the 2 on guard duty and then kill the other 2 in their sleep.

They head back to the kobold camp and talk them into joining Muhktar’s worship. They head over to Undron’s lair to talk with him about the mysterious “N” and to see if he needs anything done. They find out from him about another tribe of kobolds in the mountains being threatened by a group of ogres but nothing new about “N”. Undron requests that if the kobolds are going to deal with the ogres, if they can bring back a piece of flesh from the leader.

They head up into the mountains and find the pass watched by a pair of ogres. While sneaking up on the ogres, they notice a large winged shape flying overhead, circling. Tyraxus gets a feeling that the winged shape isn’t a threat and they attack the ogres. During the attack the large winged shape lands and attacks the other ogre. They winged shape turns out to be a Mythic Wyvern that has been sent to help them.

With the new help they decide to head straight for the ogre leader. They find him relaxing with a pair of ogres and they start to sneak up on them. The ogre leader appears to have acute senses as he hears them sneaking up on him and the ogres attack. The kobolds prove to be up to the challange and are able to take care of all 3 ogres. They take the head off the leader to take back to Undron and then head over to the cave the kobolds are in to liberate them.

With their leader dead, the remaining ogres prove to not have the heart to stay and run off into the hills. The kobolds in the caves decide to join up with our group in the worship of Muhktar. They head back to Undron with the Ogre head.

Undron is grateful for the ogre head and tells the group that while they were gone he has received some info for them. There is a group of knights that are searching for “Muhktar” to pay them for killing the adventurers. He also tells them of a Gargoyle up in the mountains that he would like the group to destroy and retrieve a crystal from.

They head out and find the knights camped out near the road, fairly near to Undron’s lair. They decide to drop in and see what they know. They sneak up and listen in on their conversation and find out that the dwarf in the group is a tracker and has been following their tracks from the village. They decide to wait until the knights go to sleep and then take them out.

They devise a plan and after taking out the guards are able to wipe out almost the whole camp while they sleep but the cavaliers mount attacks them as they try to go into its masters hut and they are forced to fight him. With no help the cavalier is quickly taken care of.

They fly up to the site where the gargoyle lives and decide to camp for the night and tackle the gargoyle in the morning.

What else will they find when they confront the gargoyle? What other challanges will they find?

The First of many adventures
The defeat of the adventurers

After many weeks of hiding out in caves and trying to keep track of the evil adventurers that slaughtered their tribe the Kobolds are finally ready to try to exact their revenge. Before they can head out a group of Hobgoblins decide to stop for the night in the very cave that they are using as their current base.

The Kobolds decide to sneak out and kill the Hobgoblins in their sleep and they are very successful at this until one of them doesn’t quite die and alerts the lone guard to the situation. This doesn’t help him survive for long. They quickly dispatch the guard and the last Hobgoblin and look for loot. They find a box with a trap on it that leaves one of them laying on the floor recovering from the poison. The other 2 stand over her and go thru the contents of the box. They find a sword and a ring and some gems in a bag, along with a note saying to take the box to the sorcerer in the hills and have the items identified and brought back. They are able to identify the ring as a cursed object and put it aside to see if they can sell or give it to someone later. They sword they can’t identify and decide to head to this sorcerer and see what he/she can do.

They have heard of this sorcerer before but never had a need to go visit so they must explore a bit to find the lair of this sorcerer. While heading toward the hills where the sorcerer is supposed to reside they encounter an Owlbear chewing on something. They decide to try to sneak up and see what it is eating. They are able to get close enough to see that it is a human in nice clothes and they want to distract the Owlbear and take any items from the body that they might want. While getting into position, they attract that attention of the Owlbear and it starts coming in their direction to see what the noise is. They try to use some spells to get it to go somewhere else but it ends up coming right at them.

They decide to attack the Owlbear as they have the superior numbers if not size. One of them climbs a tree to jump onto the Owlbear while another tries to circle around behind it. The last one stays near the tree the first one climbed up and waits. When the Owlbear gets close, they attack. They are able to flank the Owlbear and it is only able to get one hit in before they take it down. They head over and find that the body is from a traveling merchant and they collect some goodies from the body and continue on toward the sorcerers lair.

After some searching of the hills, they are able to find the entrance to the sorcerers lair and they yell into cave to get someones attention. They are met by a Drow but one that appears to be a vampire! They are toward to follow and they enter a small worked stone structure buried in the hill. They find another Drow who has 2 more Drow guards who all appear to be vampires. The Drow on the throne greets them and introduces himself as Undron. He tells the group that he is aware of an adventuring group in the area and points them to a village in the area that the adventurers and resting at. Undron tells them that if they are willing he might have some work for them after they are done with their vengeance.

They leave Undron and head to the village to kill the evil adventures. They find a quiet little village in the woods and one of the Kobolds decides to disguise himself as a halfling and enter the small inn to find out if the adventures are there. He sneaks in during the evening meal and finds the place a bit full. He starts asking the innkeeper some questions and finds out that the table right behind him has 2 of the adventures but he noticed that one of them left the inn shortly after he arrived, looking at him a little weirdly. He noticed that the elf that left went outside and he overhears chanting coming from outside. He sees an older human start looking thru the window toward him and is able to get behind another patron to block the humans vision. He sees the door to the inn open up and the human and elf and another human enter the inn looking in his direction. He quickly decide to abandon the recon and head outside with the excuse of reliving himself.

Once outside he heads toward his companions and hide. The 2 humans and the elf are joined by the other human that was still at the table and they all head outside looking around. They overhear the elf telling the older human that she swears the halfling looked a bit reptilian. Without being able to find the halfling her suspicions can’t be confirmed and after a few minutes the adventurers head back into the inn.

The Kobolds wait dark to sneak back into the inn and find that the adventurers are bedded down near the hearth in this small inn for the night. The innkeeper they saw leave and head to another building. They are able to sneak in under cover of a silence spell and dispatch the wizard who was sitting up on watch. They are able to go around and dispatch the other adventurers and loot the bodies without raising an alarm.

On the wizards body they find a journal that talks about how a mysterious figure met the adventures in Toldor (a small town a few days from the village) and told them about the den of kobolds in the hills. This figure only referred to itself as “N”.

Who is this mysterious “N”? Why did someone send these adventurers after the kobolds? These questions ran thru their minds as they celebrated the destruction of the adventurers that killed their tribe. During the celebrations various prayers were said to the kobolds deity, Muhktar. The small dragon skull, that is the only thing left from the shrine their tribe had to Muhktar, seems to fill with power and bestows power on the kobolds.

The Kobolds have become Mythic beings by the power of Muhktar. For what purpose they don’t know. For now they revel in their new found power.

What do the Kobolds do next? Only time will tell.
