At last, the Caravan approached the city of Kalsgard, and the shadows began to gather and rise to oppose them. From the mists of the evening next to a mighty river, almost 3 dozen Ulfen warriors descended on the caravan and attacked. Thier goal was simple, destroy the caravan and kill everyone there. Fortunately they were up against much more then a bunch of helpless gypsies, and the fellowship along with Amieko and the others were able to soundly defeat the raiders, killing them almost to a man. Unfortunately the three survivors became two, as an insidious magic made it apparent that any attempt to question them would quickly lead to their death. So it was decided to tie them up and leave them to the cold as the Caravan made its way to the great city of Kalsgard. Their ship meanwhile would be piloted into the port and sold for a handsome coin.
Once inside the city, it was clear that their mysterious attackers knew they had arrived. Some digging turned up the original owner of Suishen.. an old Antique collector named Finn Snaevald. The Caravan put together their goals into three main objectives.. 1) Discovery the fate of Suishen and recover the sword. 2) prepare the Caravan for the crossing over the crown of the world and the path of Agen Hai.. 3) Find a tracker and a guide who is either crazy or desperate enough to guide them during the off season. All of this would have to be done while a mysterious enemy struck from the shadows.
After they discovered Finn who had possessed the sword until a break in only 2 weeks ago, they also were contacted by the partner of an infamous Guide. She was named Ukkshakka ..and she basically told them that her partner had dissapeared. If they could find him, he would help them. After they continued to gather information, all signs pointed to a local chief named Asvig Longthews. When the fellowship tracked him down to a farm on the outskirts of town, they were celebrating a wake.. and their immediate attack, while still considerable was blunted. When we left off.. the farm was burning, most of the thralls were fleeing, meanwhile, over two dozen of Asvig’s men would soon be arriving to join in the “celebration.”
