Enter "Herfrik the Silent"
Episode 2 Chapter 3_1 Flamerule_ (1492 DR)

As the group sleeps before their grand adventure, they fall in to a strange dream. All members of the group experience the same dream. They all awake in a strange dimension where a tall robed man with wings greets them.

“You have all been chosen to retrieve an item for the gods, and you will be rewarded with one wish upon success, my name is Maloshi, the Deva. And you are in the first layer of Hell, Avernus”

The group questions Maloshi and he goes on to explain that this strange globe has been stolen by a group of devils and needs to be returned.

“A guide will meet you and help you get through hell but be careful, I do wish the gods were with you, but even they would not dare enter this retched place.”

Noticeably absent is Cain, who Maloshi explains is banned from the nine hells due to his previous adventures and success.

The group agrees to the task and is teleported to Avernus, the first layer of Hell.
Sixteen mindless Lemures lumber towards the team and are dispatched quickly by the magic of Caldreas and the arrows of Glyn.

A large shadow flies overhead and lands on the outside of Patch, this animal has three heads, a goat, a lion and a dragon and growls at the party. Patch and Ironfist proceed to pummel the beast with their weapons and fists as the many take the dragon head’s breath of fire. Laurentiana’s healing offsets the vile fire that rages from the beast’s mouth. The group quickly kills the beast with minimal injury. As the beast falls to the ground a figure approaches them. The figure is over seven feet tall and very gaunt, almost sickly. Looks to the party and says….

“You should have been here days ago, I am Herfrik, your guide.”

The "Man" Revealed

“My eyes are weary, my body is weak, I need rest and food.”

This was the constant that Gorim Ironfist felt through his journey for adventure. Seven long days on foot for the determined Half-Orc to find the town of Bear’s Head. The monk foraged, hunted and survived on his wit, skill and rations until the gates of the town was in his sights.

“Strange, one would think that the front gate would be guarded.” Ironfist thought as he approached the gates.

The sturdy monk peeked through the gate and three guards shouting at a tall, gaunt figure covered by a hood. Holding his arms out as if he wants to be shackled.

“I shall do whatever you ask, just help me find my grandson!” the “man” kept shouting.

“Stand down, guard..Stand down.” Came a voice from behind the guards. A robed Half-Elf emerged.

“Take him to the Jail, we will deal with him there. This man was one of the founding fathers of Bear’s Head.”

“This man’s name is Cain, the Deadwalker, a well known Lich.”

Ironfist was intrigued by the altercation and decided to investigate further.

It turns out that Cain has asked the Champions of the Vale to rescue his grandson Quinn from the depths of the underdark. Quinn and his companions Tink, Kursk and Skamus were captured 10 years ago by drows in the shallows beneath Bear’s Head. The Champions have agreed to assist the lich (much to Laurentiana’s chagrin) in rescuing the group. Cain asked the group to rest, eat and be ready in the morning.

The Mysterious Man
Episode 2, Chapter 1, 1 Flamerule (1492 DR)

The Champions of the Vale are now enjoying their peace and quiet at the Bear’s Head Inn. Talking to Kira and the townsfolk and just going about their day. All the townsfolk gathered around as Xander boastfully (and drunkenly) told the story of how the now Half-Elven wizard Caldreas came to be.

When all of the sudden the bar patrons started leaving the inn to a commotion outside. Kira and the Champions soon follow to see what seems like the whole town at the front gate. Two guards facing a mysterious hooded figure with weapons drawn.

The figure uttered in a low deep voice.

“Caldreas Arannis, Xander Wayfinder, Glyn Windriver and Patch……Help me, I beg of you.”

A New DM for Legacy of the Realms

Having had the privilege of a being a DM for Legacy of the Realms has been an amazing experience for me. However, as of today, I will be handing over the reigns of being a DM to one of our players, Justin Wells (Cain, the Deadwalker).

I know Justin will continue the epic storylines and great gaming experience that has made Legacy of the Realms the award-winning campaign it is.

I look forward now to being a player in the campaign and focusing on my Savage Worlds campaigns. I may even consider starting a different 5e campaign someday.

Till swords meet!
