Kingmaker - Session 32

Session #32 - July 14th, 2011


Johan Lapierre, special envoy from Châteaufoy, arrived in Staghelm to meet with Gerrard. The halfling informed the young baron that Châteaufoy has learned of the increasing troll threat south of the Dragontail River, and would like to see it stopped before it spreads further north. They wish to leave this task to Veridia, promising a reward of 2,000 gold coins plus additional resources should they succeed. Gerrard, already planning on doing something about the trolls, agreed, and invited Lapierre to remain in Castle Staghelm while awaiting word of their success.

General Vittoria and Marshal Gaetana both informed Gerrard that their people can hold back the troll patrols. However, they did not have enough personnel to mount an expedition into troll territory and protect Veridia at the same time. Nonetheless, a small team of skilled individuals could stop the trolls at the heart of them while the Veridian Guard and Rangers held the border. With the Wardens of the Reach broken, Gerrard required a new team to undertake this task. He put out a call for brave and skilled adventurers to form the Emerald Guard, Gerrard's own personal team.

Four adventurers answered the call. Gordawg Wildhammer, dwarven cleric of Deianeira. Haldor Hammerstein, the dwarf mercenary. The half-orc alchemist Rennab. Victor Spinu, the telepath psi-goblin disguised as a gnome. All four agreed to work with Gerrard on dealing with this troll threat, being paid a thousand gold pieces up front, and another thousand upon completion of the mission. The newly formed Emerald Guard set out on that very day.

They soon came across several troll tracks. Tracking them, the group found the trolls. Rennab threw an explosive bomb at two of them, and the battle was joined. Despite the sneak attack of another troll that was hidden, the Emerald Guard proved their worth as they tore through the trolls with little problem, despite Gerrard finding himself in the front and beaten on. He got his revenge, however, with a well placed and deadly shot of his pistol against the troll ranger and leader of the patrol, nearly felling him in one shot.

Several days later, the group came to the aid of Jubilost Narthropple and his expedition. After driving away a couple of trolls that attacked them, one of their wagons ended getting stuck in the Daggerteeth River, being at risk of washing away. Together, the Emerald Guard managed to get the wagon and its ponies out of the river. Although Narthropple insisted that they did not need help, his workers appreciated the timed rescue. Jubilost Narthropple was an explorer, and Gerrard managed to bargain with the gnome for locations that the explorer had discovered, in exchange for gold and a promise for a future business arrangement between his expedition and Evergreen Industrials.

Current date: Earthday, Illiao 13th, 109 Age of Reclamation.
