Unlikely Companions

Chapter 2
Escape from the Shadowplane

Solana escapes from captivity from Drago Quick’s tower in the shadowplane, with the help of the Shadovar warlock Parise Ulfbinder. She jumps into the twisting portal and ends up in Calim Desert. There, she wanders into an oasis and joins a trade caravan.

The master warlock Drago Quick sends Thyntus to hunt down Solana, but Parise intervenes again and convinces Thyntus to join Solana with the promise of power.

Inevitably, Thyntus uses his attunement to Solana’s magic to find her in the Calim Desert. Together they save the caravan from marauding kolbolds.

The caravan sees their value and decides to hire both tieflings to work for them as guards until they reach Memnon. Unfortunately, they are stopped by Drago Quick who has been monitoring the entire situation. The pair attempt to escape, but Drago was too powerful and traps them in a maze spell. At the last moment, a silver chariot appears and a powerful elven wizard battles against Drago, forcing him to retreat.

Blight on Misty Forest

Jazzara of house Mylyl and Nuriel of house Limbiya are sent to Misty Forest to convince Siegfried to allow the drow from New Purl to hunt for food in Misty Forest. Unfortunately, the deal turns sour when Nuriel’s true lethal intentions surface and Jazzara decides to defend her friend Siegfried. The pair are forced to kill Nuriel.

Animals of the forest come to Siegfried asking him to stop a blight that is growing in the forest. When Jazzara and Siegfried investigate, they bump into a camp of goblins led by an orc. Jazzara tries to convince the orc to leave, but fails and a fight ensues.

After the short battle, they meet with Spinley the druid from Trollbark Forest, who aids them in finding the source of the blight. The party bumps into Elanore, a girl from Daggerford who is fleeing from a pair of cultists. When the cultists are dispatched, it is revealed that they turn into demon Manes.

The party decides to take Elanore back to Daggerford, while Spinley stays back in the forest to continue his investigation. Daggerford seems welcoming, and Elanore returns to her grateful father, Gus. Her family requests that the innkeep Tanner gives them a free stay at the inn.

In the dead of night, Jazzara is visited by a drow scout, wondering what happened to Nuriel. She lies and says that Nuriel was killed in by the orc/goblin camp went rogue.

The next morning, Gus beseeches the party to speak with Ellandria, the magistrate of Daggerford. Ellandria explains that the cult is of Bane, based on the description of the 3-talon claw tattoo discovered on the bodies of the cultists.
