Brenna the Human Ranger, Osrika the Human(?) Cleric of Myrkel, Nate the Halfling wannabeRanger, Kreena the Kender, and at least two others whos identities are lost to time, were hired as a team to track down and eliminate the source of bugbear? raids. The adventurers tracked them through the forest, and eventually found, cleared, and took over the Forest Keep the bugbears had been using. With the Keep under new management, local villagers began frequenting the place, helping to give the small fortress a new life, and it wasn’t long before the Keep became a center for trade in the area.
As of last recollection, the keep had a smithy, a Mage/Alchemy tower, a library, living quarters for the party, a training field, and a market within it’s walls. Beyond the Keep and in the forest, the Halfling has placed an unknown number of hidden blinds and supply caches. From this fortified base of operations, the party ran several more missions, during one of which the Kender lost an arm to a trap. Luckily, Osrika, the somewhat disquieting Cleric was able to reattach the limb and save her life.
Since then, the party’s mage has left, the partiy’s dwarf has left, and the Kender has moved somewhere with shinnier toys. In their place, a Half-Elven Fighter, and Drace, the Fighter / Blacksmith have joined up and well proven themselves in and out of battle.
For a time, the party split up on individual jobs, but met back up on the frontlines of a skirmish near Lord Bart’s keep…
