Guild of the Golden Sword

Session 01: Black Fang and the Cult of the Fractured Flail

Like all good adventures, this one started at a tavern. Gamin, the proprietor of the Guild of the Golden Sword, handed out drinks and received Wanted! or Help! posters for jobs in the area. One Mayor Kendra Deverin of Sandpoint was one such person in need of help. She marched into the tavern toward closing time and announced she was looking for adventurers to bring back supplies for the town orphanage that were stolen by the “Cult of the Black Fang”, or something to that degree.

Post-Game Note: Deverin actually confused two problems in the town. The Cult of the Fractured Flail took the orphanage supplies and fled to a nearby mountain. There has also been a monster terrorizing nearby farms, and the only thing left behind from one of its many attacks, was a large black fang.

The adventurers who answered the call were:
Aestril, the Half-Elf Fighter.
Clemens, the Half-Elf Druid.
Grog, the Half-Orc Brawler.
Nevis, the Halfling Bard.

They took off to the nearby mountain, and found some goblins that needed killing, and another group that only needed a toy. There was a debate between the adventurers as to whether it was alright to kill the goblins for their loot even if they haven’t attacked you (it was said that Goblins are just born evil and killing one doesn’t actually make you evil under almost any circumstance).

Eventually the heroes found the toy, a Dragonbane Longsword, and a warning about a wyrm living in these caves. The adventurers then continued past a crypt of undead and into a black dragon’s lair. The dragon launched an acidic attack, but was obviously scared of the Dragonbane Longsword that Aestril equipped.

When Aestril finally landed a blow on the dragon, it screeched and flew away. The black dragon, known locally as Black Fang, left behind a small treasure trove. In the same room were a pile of bodies, with tattoos of black flails on their bodies. Finally, there were the orphanage supplies.

The heroes took them back, and asked/told Gamin they would like to use the Guild of the Golden Sword as their base of operations, and hold onto some of these useful items. Gamin cobbled something together, but there’s always room for improvement!
