Tonight we are going to play our third session of Dw, and I have created some long term fronts.
The story so far….
We started the campaign with the Pc’s escorting a caravan of (disguised) Custodian of the Order of the Silent Dawn. The exact nature of what were they escorting was kept secret from them, that was part of the deal: “don’t ask question”. During the journey they were ambushed, many were killed and the Pc’s were driven off to a magical swamp were they faced some cultists of Signadoth and discovered their base (an ancient temple of a forgotten good diety) as the heart of the swamp itself. They also confronted a Spirit of the Drowned who had infested the local river.
They met the Sorceress of the cult and managed to convince her to let them go, so she showed them a way out of the swamp.
Later they arrived to the poor and cursed village of Turburg, they helped the locals to kill a beast that during the night hunted the villagers, but can’t come into their house because of some protective gliphs on the doors..
The beast was an owlbear, but corrupted with unded energy. when they slayed the beast thousends of worms disgorged from the corpse (the druid followed the worms, but that is another story…).
They discover that the villager were once fishermans and also used to navigate the river to raid the village of Quinn, to the south. They say that Spirit of the Drowned they had previousely slain was there for years and was preventing them to come close to the river. they say they were cursed by the villager of Quinn.
