Back in the beginning… Four adventurers (Erevan, Ekemon, Keelee, and Nayl) were signed up to be in a group for a contest held by Lord Danian of Marisef. Over 50 groups competed in a race to the top of a mountain. Of course, our fair PCs won the competition and became Lord Danian’s personal Azure Guard. One of their first duties was to discover what was happening with certain funds, because it seemed that certain groups (temples, guilds) were not receiving their adequate share. This led the party eventually to the halfling town of Court to the north, where they met their personal cleric Merena Seafare. Upon their return to Marisef, they discovered it was completely destroyed and taken over by Lord Baylorne, a powerful militaristic leader of Tenur. They lead an interesting campaign to save fellow Marisef’ians, Nayl included, from the prison in which they were being held. They barely escaped with their lives from Marisef, but vowed that they would be back in order to regain their hometown.
There were some musings with halflings, and dwarves, and some more humans, before fate (or an encrypted note) lead them northward to The Fissure, a giant dark chasm that spans almost the length of the continent through its center. Within The Fissure, notorious for being a complete anti-magic zone, tiefling warlocks had found rocks that held some remnants of arcane magic. This adventure led the party northwards, to the dragonborn kingdoms. Along their journey, Keelee Clearwater was captured by a group of men, saying that she held some information that they wanted. At this point, Tanis, the sharp-shooting half-elf, disappeared, presumably back southwards to fight Lord Baylorne on his own. The party, now diminished, continued north, and by chance met with two elves: Lyr the albino druid, and Silvanox the map making ranger.
Once in the Dagger Mountains, the party searched for clues regarding an infamous evil wizard named Urea’Nilas, who was proposedly after the “source of magic.” A seer finally gave them a riddle on how to open a portal that would lead them to him. After some journeying, and collecting various items, the party managed to open the portal into a pocket dimension – a cave entirely made of blue and purple hued crystals. At the end of the dungeon, they encountered Urea’Nilas before a very large amethyst door. An epic battle ensued, but the party came out ultimately victorious.
