Headed toward Varnhold the Trimuvirs encounter many natural waterfalls and picturesque scenery. They also find an abandoned fort. Pressing on they visit Nivakta’s Crossing. A town of trappers and expanding fur trade.

Rumors of Nivakta’s Crossing

1 “The Nomen Centaurs of the Dunsward are violent and territorial. If you’re going to visit them, make sure you don’t make any sudden moves when one of their war parties approaches you.”

2 “The Nomen Centaurs eat humans. I suppose that’s not technically cannibalism, but it’s still pretty horrible!

3 “A tribe of spriggans lives in the Tors somewhere. They’ve been at war with the Nomen centaurs for as long as anyone, I reckon. Rumor holds that the current spriggan chieftain stole a magic bow from the centaurs quite a few years ago, and that’s what started the whole fight between them. I also hear that the spriggans worship some dark god that grants them power on the battlefield.”

4 “A giant bird lives in the ruins of an old tower on Talon Peak. My boys and I are setting out to tomorrow to snatch one of its eggs for an omelet cooking competition run by some fool down in Sellenmar.”

Traveling on…
South of Nivakta’s Crossing the heroes find body of Tomen Habaki and family broach.

Varnhold Vanishes
Gone baby gone...

Missive.png
On the way to Varnhold the Triumvirs are surprised by a great draconic creature called a Peluda according to their Herald Eruien. During the battle both Jorran and Esara were gravely injured but continued to fight. As the powerful poison coursed through their veins they continued to support Marmax and Damian. Finally the poison brought Jorran low and he fell before the great beast. Marmax in tactical retreat and Damian’s morale faltering, Esara knew she had to keep fighting. With the last of her strength she drew her bow and fired. The arrow bounced off its thick hide impotently. Brought to her knees by the power of the poison and the death of Jorran she reach back. Her hand shaking, her breath raspy, she knocked the arrow and pulled back the string with everything she had. As the arrow streaked from the bow she fell to the ground. The arrow struck the beast in the chest, with a howl of anger and desperation it fell to the ground dead.

Ariane the Chirurgeon rushed to Esara’s side. Cradling her head she administers the antitoxin. Marmax and Damian scramble to Esara’s side. They muster all the healing magic they can for Esara. Her wounds are gone, her skin once again unblemished from the horrors of the battle, but It comes too late. With a final haggard breath she’s gone. Quickly, Ariane uses a scroll of Gentle Repose on her late Lady, they know that she can be brought back by Jhod Kevkin in Sentry.
