So far the game consists of a party of 4 non-humans consisting of an Elf, a Half-elf, a Halfling and a Half-Orc. We hope to be joined by more players next time.
The opening game consisted of the party meeting after the elvish bard had her purse snatched by a halfling member of the thieves guild. We traced the guild hangout to a local tavern where we encountered a female guild member who offered to give my character (the half-elf) information on his father's murder six months prior. In exchange for this information the party was told that the guild wished to collect money owed by a gang of bandits half a day south of town. The party was lead to believe that these bandits were responsible for the attack on the half-orc's caravan. After being given the location of the band we headed south and encountered a party in what looked to be the described location. One of our party was spotted and the other party demanded booze or money. When neither was forthcoming they attacked. The fight ended after we routed what we thought were bandits. We came upon a group holding bows and claiming to be merchants. We ran them off and searched the wagons finding nothing to indicate them as the ones we were looking for. Theses merchants claimed the leader had ridden off. My familiar spotted someone fleeing south along the road. We gave chase. The riders horse stumbled and feel killing the rider, an elf with a very interesting magic signet ring and a scroll. We decided to take the scroll to the dwarves further down the road as this seemed to be the most likely location for it's intended delivery. At this point is was clear that we had be duped into stopping the delivery of this scroll.
