Delenda Est

Kobold Hall
Retribution for lives lost!

After a particularly savage attack on non-military targets by the Arkhosians, the Turathi are forced to respond with savage retribution! The strike force is dispatched on the heels of the attackers, and trace them back to a small cave entrance in the hill side. They see kobolds and a mysterious dragonborn warrior enter inside.

The force fight their way through several chambers, dodging traps the whole time. All members find themselves useful at various points and all of their strengths are tested and highlighted to each other. At what seems like the end, the force find themselves running from a magically propelled 10-foot tall boulder. While they dodge the boulder they find themselves at the mercy of kobold slingers, and eventually confront the might of a kobold wyrmpriest, those despicable creatures that worship the chromatic dragons, and his bodyguard.

After defeating the heinous dragon worshipers the force found its way down into the secret lair of the leader of the recent strikes, the white dragon Szartharax! As they sneaked down, they overheard Szartharax and a dragonborn, Vrak Tiburkaern, arguing.

Vrak: “You must be more patient Szartharax! If we attack their villages, that will only make them attack ours!”

Szar: “They already slaughtered my children, I claim vengeance as is my right under your law.”

Vrak: “Stick to military target for now. After we’ve massacred their strong then we can deal with their weak. ... Just remember, the Broodmother is close. After she arrives, everything changes.”

At that time, Gaius had the misfortune of dropping his javelin, alerting the two schemers to his presence. Vrak made an escape out the back door, leaving behind a scrap of his tabard on the brambles outside (being identified as the holy sign of Bahamut). The party, meanwhile, had to deal with an angry dragon in its own inner sanctum. After destroying many of the delicate ice features Szartharax had built up in his vanity, the party managed to beat him, though three were left very near death. With their information on the alliance with the chromatic dragons, and the mysterious entity called the Broodmother, they made their way back to General Zolfura to report.

Characters' Premise
In B.T. 2101 war was beginning...

The story so far…

The states of Bael Turath and Arkhosia have been in cold war for years now, manipulating intermediaries and fighting a war of influence and expansion over their respective continents. The latest in a series of open grabs at power has just occurred in the Dwarven Territories, centered on the city-state and capital, Khaz Yeshwe. The dwarves have recently been split into three factions, one supporting each of the Empires, and one nationalist faction.

Seeing the growing influence of the Arkhosian Empire on dwarven culture, which had always been more neutral and merchant based, Bael Turath decided to take matters into their own hands. The Senate convinced renowned General Sextus Zolfura to lead a campaign to “liberate” the Dwarven Territories from the insidious dragonborn influence.

General Zolfura has been successful and the territories were occupied before a significant Arkhosian influence could be brought to bear from their lands. Recently the Arkhosian army has made camp outside of clear mobilization range of the occupying force, but excursions by both parties have been made.

After one particularly heinous attack on a non-military target by the Arkhosians, mainly Kobolds, General Zolfura organized a special attack force to be a precision effort to clear certain problems that arise that he could not afford to bring the whole army to bear on. This team currently consists of: a tiefling paladin of Bane, and moral heart of the force; a tiefling warlord and young protege and favorite of the General; a dastardly pickpocket that was convinced to use his abilities for the good of the Empire; a former champion of the Arkhosian gladiator circuit, liberated by the General’s forces; and a dwarven prophet siding with the Turathi for her own glory.
