The adventure so far...

Chaos in the Gornan Pass
Dec 13, 2015
Wild Day in the week of Death, in the season of the Sea, 1621

The party continues traveling west through the Gornan Pass region, on their way from Irist Hold to Hendarstead.

In the early afternoon of Wild Day, the party comes upon an opening to a box canyon that is an off-shoot of the main Gornan Pass trail. Unnaturally disturbed Gornan (earth spirits) are spotted and the party carefully considers their options. After much discussion, it is decided that Draedelis (a holy warrior to Maran Gor) will lead the party in a ritual to calm the spirits; the ritual is successful but leads the party to wonder why the Gornan were so disturbed in the first place.

The party cautiously advances into the box canyon, leaving the main trail behind. They are surprised to see signs of encroaching Chaos, in the form of nearly a score of vile broo. Even worse corruption is visible farther ahead, near the end of the box canyon.

The party engages the broo, eventually defeating them. As they begin to recover from the battle they are attacked by a chimera which had made its lair on a strangely shaped rock out-cropping at the end of the box canyon. Despite the chimera's fierce and dire power, the party emerges from the battle triumphant.

Leaving Irist Hold; Markessa Redux
Nov 22, 2015
Starts on Sun Day in the week of Death, in the season of the Sea, 1621

While the party had enjoyed the celebrations in their honor at Irist Hold, eventually their minds returned to their larger goals and they set out back west towards the Lunar Empire.

Traveling quickly up the trail west of Irist Hold, towards the heart of the Dragonspine Mountains, the party soon leaves behind the foothills and finds themselves flanked by the massive cliffs of Gornan Pass. It is there that they become aware that they are not alone.
