After a day of challenging contests and a grand feast, Lord Marquelhay announced the formation of a new band of heroes with the following speech:
“Throughout its history, the town of Fallcrest has prospered alongside its heroes. A hundred years ago, our heroes fell to the orc hordes and the town was nearly erased from existence. Thanks to our dwarven friends in Hammerfast, the people of Fallcrest were able to survive and my grandfather lead the people back to rebuild. Since that time, however, new heroes have not risen and the town has not thrived.”
“I believe with my whole heart that a new time has arrived for Fallcrest. These gifted young people; these promising, powerful heroes will surely be able to lead us into a new era of prosperity. Let us all lift our glasses and toast to their health. Let all the gods and every citizen of Fallcrest grant them blessing!”
Gheshkan – Dragonborn paladin of Kord and heir to a long line of Fallcrest’s protectors.
Morgan – Dwarven cleric of Kord and member of the Ironhews Clan.
Gwydion – Eladrin apprentice to Magister Nimozaran of the Septarch’s Tower.
Slyron – Clever Elven trickster who has discarded the woodland path followed by his kin.
The first mission given to the new heroes was to investigate the increased activity of kobold raiders in the area. They were pointed to a ruined manor to the North-West.
The party entered an underground complex and did battle with many kobolds, including their mighty champion: Slithik. Though Slithik proved to be a challenge, the party rose to the occasion and the kobold clan was forced to yield their ill-gotten treasures.
