The Scorching of Waterdeep

On a street choked with the smoke and acrid stench of a great city burning the Book and Blade appeared. Brought there as they were by the untested magics of a Tymoran priests first attempt at teleportation it is understandable that what they first noticed was not the deep cloak of smoke turned bright orange by the nearby flames or the cinders falling all around them. A hard road teaches those who travel it to pick up on certain important sounds. These sounds you eventually learn to hear to the exclusion of others when faced with the unknown. The sounds of screaming people, desperate and horrified, cut through the mind haze of the teleportation spell faster than anything else.

Dinner With Friends

The Book and Blade arrived in Waterdeep to participate in Governor Tarthus Marcone‘s state dinner. Each member arrived for their own reasons but found things which warranted the groups additional attention. Bimdle Windwalker along with Herrun “Blackfinger” Bolderheft investigated rumors from Inquisitor Lewis suggesting that Dimble Windwalker was somewhere in the lower districts of Waterdeep. They did indeed find the gnomish barbarian deep within the lower residential district where he seemed to be leading a quasi-arcane cult in activity focused around the iron works tower left from the The Burned Man’s attack on the city.

Head Hunting

On the way the force of about 250 were constantly attacked by the Orcish horde and associated monsters. The Book and Blade themselves defeated an attacking Beholder with Ogre Mage bodyguards.

Taking Back Loudwater

An Elven voice is the first thing to pierce the blue flame that consumes the Book and Blades world. “I have them” it says in a calm but slightly rushed tone. When vision returns it seems as though the group is back in the center of the Ultraloth wall of flame but it is not the misty swamp that dominates the landscape beyond the fire but the storm shrouded walls of the town of Loudwater. The scene has a dream like quality and a great lethargy saps the will of the party.

Waterdeep Investigations

Investigations of ongoing events in Waterdeep prove to be difficult as the city lives up to its reputation of dangerous intrigue and lawless alley streets.

Fields Rising

The heroic Book and Blade have returned to an admiring city of Fields. Bolstered with confidence inspired by the martial feats of their great adventuring party the people of the Allied Cities have proposed the Lex Cretum Certo. It came as a surprise to many when the Heroes themselves spoke out against the movement. A counter movement of intellectual and philosopher senators gained strength from the support of the party.

Stercus Accidit

The Book and Blade have raised Overwatch Keep deep in the High Forest atop the Star Mountains. Brave men of the Blade and Quicksilver Companies stand fast against a horde of savage forest peoples who would otherwise interrupt the fledgling flow of Frigentum, a material for which Fields Exports and Imports is willing to spend considerable sums. Furthermore the Lord Warden has assured the Senate of Fields he will keep secure the forest in the name of The Lady and her Allied Cities.

Now the Book and Blade strike out at the head of the Black Cloaks 1st Legion under the command of the young Colonel Aegean Vervale. Their objective is to civilize the savage frontier and open up further opportunities for trade and settlement for the people of the Allied Cities.

Even now Daggerford trembles under the gaze of a thousand men of 1st Legion and the mighty Book and Blade.
