12 Neth, 4717 AR (Absalom Reckoning), Autumn
Nirmathas and Molthune border
Having recovered the Everflame, Caldreas and Cain ventured on their own personal quests, leaving Patch to seek out adventures of his own.
Patch and his young cohort, Liliana, traveled through the Southern Fangwood in Nirmathas. Patch decided to travel south and travel along the Inner Sea to Absalom once he reached Cheliax.
Near the border of Molthune, north of the Marideth River, Patch came upon a dwarf named Brandin Luther being attacked by two trolls. After dispatching the trolls, three scouts appeared. They were members of the elite Chernasardo Rangers, the most deadly snipers, trappers, and scouts from Nirmathas.
The Chernasardo Rangers escorted Patch, Liliana, and Brandin to a hidden camp deep in the forest. Patch and Brandin was led to Forest Marshal Weslen Gavirk, who was recently elected leader of the forested nation of Nirmathas. In his tent, Gavirk had Brandin arrested after the dwarf was recognized as a poacher who was imprisoned two months ago by Chernasardo Rangers. On the promise that Brandin would poach elsewhere besides in Nirmathas, the dwarf was allowed to go free. It was apparent to Patch that Brandin didn’t keep his word.
