It has been said that it all began with a simple band of heroes. Heroes who chose to side with an orcish warrior, instead of a thief.
A thief who called himself ‘king’.
Once upon a time, in the ancient ruins Thistletop, south of Aquitaine …
The heroes had met with the Aquitaine Council, the matter could not be considered lightly. Aquitaine was going to be attacked again, but not by a surprise raid of kobolds. It was to be by an army of kobolds, undead and worse.
The Council began preparations: bolstering defenses with the help of a lone kobold loyal to Aedlered, preparing an ancient ritual of divine binding and protection, they begin to do all they can to be safe. At the same time, the heroes take a barge and sail south across to the lake to Thistletop to confront Nualia head on.
At the ruins, they avoid the kobold patrols, and discover a medusa who has been using the upper galleries of Thistletop as a refuge from trophy hunters. Her name was Virasha, and with her help, the heroes make their way past the upper defenses and down into the heart of Nualia’s underground stronghold.
But not all goes as planned, as the heroes are now caught between one of Nualia’s mercenaries and her demonic yeth hounds, and a room damaged by the telltale signs of a Hellcat, summoned from the Abyssal Outlander plane.
