We had our first real session last night, with three players and one lurker.

After a year or so working in and around the Library in the eastern part of the continent, including a winter spent close to base to research and rebuild, it is time for some of the longer range plans of the Guardians of Bletherad in their ongoing struggle against the Zealotry.

Towards that end, Silver, Valinya, and Talks With Rocks are told to make their way to the city of Llorn, there to await further orders. After conferring and rejecting Silver’s suggestion that they could all just fly there, Talks With Rocks prevails upon them to travel overland through the Disputed Lands, where he has allies.

They set off on the their journey with a small boat taking them to the mainland, where they are set ashore on a small pier the Library maintains. The vast expanse of the forests of the Disputed Lands stretch before them.

They set out into the woods.  Talks With Rocks decides their first destination should be the small Human settlement of Sweet Creek. There he hopes to connect with the local druid. The going is slow, and the weather is nasty. Typical spring showers keep the heroes soaked and the paths muddy.

When they get close to Sweet Creek, Talks With Rocks declares that he and Silver should hide outside of town, as the folk there are not fond of canids, due to the menace of the Wolfen, and would probably react poorly to a dragon as well. Silver comments that it is sometimes fun to watch the reactions of folk when they first meet him. Valinya sighs and heads alone into the village.

Sweet Creek is very small, with a few families and a hall that serves as a meeting place. Dogs roam the stockade.  It is a market day, so there are trappers and woodsmen in town trading with a few merchants who have spread out their wares on blankets on the grass of the commons in front of the hall. Valinya finds an old woman with packs of trail rations. It takes some finagling as she has little to trade, but she manages to persuade the woman to take her gold. She comes away with all the woman’s wares and the feeling that they both got a very good deal.

There are rumors around town, of course, of Wolfen threats, pixies in the woods, hunters gone missing - the usual.

Valinya returns to the hiding place to plan the next move with Talks With Rocks and Silver.
