The group has been sent out to the countryside looking for the magical bracers of the succubi Tyleena. She appears to be a Redeamed Soul and the bracers allow her to wield good aligned magical weapons. Riddick, Perrin, Icarus, Brimstone and Calsifer encounter Orcs along the way to Grasfell village. The Orcs position in the woods along each side of the path using the trees as cover. What starts as a Orc ambush turns into a Orc Slaughterfest. Perrin quickly dashes up the left side off the path to take down an orc. Riddick and Calsifer both use missle weapons to slay 2 Orcs and Icarus kills the other 3 Orcs in quick elven ranger style.p.
The village of Grasfell was once rumored to have a resident Mage who may have had the bracers. The group meets the town sheriff, Arag the Hammer, an older adventurer turned village guardian. Arag tells the group that the Mage Elizar Randed-Hand turned evil so the villagers turned against him. They sealed him in his keep a half day’s travel from the village. Arag also states that there are possible Blue Dragon sightings from some villagers. Shepard Hodge and Nadia the Blacksmith both confirm the dragon sightings and point the direction of the dragon’s flight is same direction as Elizar’s Keep. p.
The next day, the group enters the keep and gets there first encounter with the Blue Dragon. Riddick and Brimstone are the first to enter since they have darkvision. It is still difficult to see and they get attacked by the Blue in a large room. Perrin and Icarus get light sources and arrive followed by Calsipher. The heroes use all the resources available to defeat their first challenging creature, a young adult blue dragon. They are able to strip it of valuable parts and take back to town to SinegRoot, village alchemist. The groups victory is shortlived when they learn that Shepard Hodge has been killed. p.
They return to the Keep and after going thru the maze of rooms and corridors, the heroes come before Elizar’s room. There is strong anti magic around the outside of the room as they open the door. The room is dark and they hear the voice of Elizar. “Allow me to pass and you can have the bracers” says Elizar. the group steps back as the man gets closer to the door still in shadow. By the time he is outside among them, they are in a antimagic zone with a Vampire! He leaves the bracers in the room as promised but destroys the village of Grasfell upon his release.
