Book 1: Chapter 1 - A Game Afoot in Stormreach

Eberron is a world of pulp noir where swashbuckling and intrigue run rampant. The Last War is over, the war to end all wars, but many say the fighting has simply shifted from the battlefield to the shadows.

In the wake of a long and terrible war, a world struggles to find its destiny. Will it descend once more into brutal conflict and end in spectacular annihilation, or will the world emerge at last into a new era of peace and prosperity? One group of heroes hopes to make Eberron a better place. The Grey Company, formed by a collection of heroes recruits new members to their growing ranks -- you among them.

With his coin pouch a bit heavier, "It is late, but if anyone is willing, now may be a decent time to check out our other objective." The warforged is ready to go at any hour, but he is acutely aware that his companions require rest.

Number Six: "I am not a number, I am a free man!"

The warforged eyes the new recruit, "Well let's go then, we can inform you along the way."

Fletcher turns the the shifter, "Werz! Come on, I know you are always ready to move on the next thing."

The Giant's Span At Night

Post by Vardaen » Thu May 22, 2014 9:51 pm

So that's the decision. The group leaves the Stormreach Guard and travels across the Harbor District back to the edge of the Giant's Span where the ruins of the ancient bridge dominate the sky line. Your mission, to find the Shard with one of the massive bridge pilings known as The Crow. With the cover of darkness you might now be able to swim or row out across the harbor to your goal.

As the group walks Fletcher explains the nature of their prime directive to Helion. Nearing the docks he looks around for a small boat the the owner wouldn't miss until morning.

Werz as always is keen to move on, and the restless shifter is quick to scamper on and detect a useful vessel for their nigh time foray.

He returns to the group shortly and reports back on two small boats that look like good prospects. In reply to the halfling he offers.

"Barisht won't be able to take us up there. He's not strong enough. But he can take a rope up there and tie it somewhere. I guess we can try that."

"Try to get the more sturdy of the two boats" Oloven notes, pointing to his armor. "I could see some problems arising if it were to tip"
