Summary[edit]

The campaign starts with Virgo Sunsword and a small group of his top men: Ghana Ens Sin, Nathaniel Granger and Tennis approaching a town near a snowy frontier. The town had requested military aid months earlier and a squad was sent to help, but they disappeared and a second squad was sent. After not receiving word from the second squad, Virgo decided it was time to investigate the matter personally.

When they arrived, they found that the town was desolate. The squad searched the town and found a young elf named Simon, a mute squire and Reginald Barringster III, drafting a letter stating that the second squad had been wiped out and requested further aid. Reginald was startled by their presence, having not expected Virgo to involve himself in the matter. Taking a begrudging Reginald and Simon with them, the group leaves the town in search for a Cave of Snobolds. Along the path, they encounter a family of woolly Elaphelks which they slaughter, although Nathaniel tames one of their young. The group approached a frozen lake that they needed to cross to reach the snobold cave. The ice was not thick enough to take the weight of Nathaniel and his new elaphelk. So, he flew across instead, leaving the other members of the squad behind to walk.

After crossing the lake, Virgo and his men traversed through the snowy wasteland. Here they encounter several Snobolds, Kobolds who live in the snow. Swiftly making work of the Snobolds, the squad interrogated two of the Kobolds, but couldn't get any helpful information. Virgo, trying to get more information out of the mute squire by healing his vocal cords, accidentally Simon. A shocked Reginald tells them exactly how to get to the cave in the mountains. Virgo and his men continued with a very terrified Reginald leading the way.

In the cave they encounter a bunch of gnomes. Meanwhile Reginald Barringster makes an escape from the group. The remaining group get in to a fight with the gnomes. Virgo kills their supposed leader, crushing the gnome into a puddle of blood. The gnomes leave the cave in a frenzied act of surrender after seeing this, leading the group to believe that they have won the day. It is at this moment that several Flesh Monstrosities appear. After fighting these abominations one member of the group discovers a letter, whose content implies that Reginald is partially responsible for the situation at this town and the existence of the flesh monsters.

The campaign then ends, stating to be continued.
