The party, being refreshed from a good night’s sleep, immediately begin asking around for available work and kept an eye out for some extra muscle. After a brief disagreement in the bar, the party could add Sylvia Lunn to the roster. They also met Cysinye, a wondering samurai with no current master; and Bok, a half-crazed half-orc barbarian. The first of the quests seemed simple enough, a local was concerned about a bandit camp, and wanted their heads as proof of demise. However not three hours out of town, they met a very, very, VERY big black dragon. This may or may not have been an avatar of Tiamat… It’s like the gods threw down some dice and got the worst possible thing to throw at the party. After sacrificing their mounts, and part of Sylvia… The dragon decided to leave them alone. After hoofing it to the encampment, the party quickly dispatched 7 bandits; however, their leader made his presence known. Onorok One-Hand put up a fearsome fight, but was eventually brought down. Upon returning to town, the party began to question the local’s motives, for why would he want the heads of the bandits? They eventually let the matter die, and went to the inn because they were informed someone wanted them well-rested before they spoke. The party is currently sleeping and waiting to see what a trip to the baron’s house will bring.
