Starday, 29 Lamashan, 4716 AR (Absalom Reckoning), Fall
The Heroes of Sandpoint, after entering Foxglove Manor suffered the loss of Nagatono. A new hero has joined the group on their quest to solve the mystery behind the murders plaguing Sandpoint. But another loss to the group will test the Heroes’ resolve to solve the mystery of Foxglove Manor.
The ravens outside Foxglove Manor flew in wide arcs then descended upon the trio of wolves chasing a wild hare they were hoping to make a meal out of.
One wolf which happened to run far enough from the other three was spared the ravens’ deadly onslaught. Seeing its pack mates torn to pieces by the ravens, the lone wolf ran towards the opening that led into the manor.
At the same time, another, an elf named Shien was also running towards the open doorway. Shien had followed the Heroes of Sandpoint hoping to be able to join their group.
Once inside the wolf bared its teeth and growled at Shien who stood just inside the doorway. Outside, the three other wolves lay dead. The ravens had flown back to the nearby trees. Shien had an eerie feeling the birds were guarding the manor.
“Blackfang,” a voice nearby alerted Shien. “is that you?”
The wolf turned momentarily towards the voice. It then wagged its tail as if returning to its master.
Others began to appear. Shien recognized them all as the Heroes of Sandpoint.
“Who are you?” a tall muscular man asked Shien. He held a battle axe in one hand and a wooden shield in the other.
