Rise of the Runelords
By the time the newly formed “Band of Adventurer’s” defeat the goblin commando and save Aldern Foxglove from his fate, Sandpoint’s overall battle against the goblins has been decided. Surviving goblins flee north in droves, in some cases preferring to leap to their certain deaths off the cliff at Junker’s Edge rather than be captured. Several of the little menaces are caught alive, but they prove useless when interrogated; none of these goblins know much more than that they were given orders to kill everyone in town and burn down the place. None of the captured goblins can even remember their leader’s name, apart from the fact that he was one of “you longshanks.” Their leader was on a secret mission to the town’s graveyard—that much most goblins can say, but none of them know what that mission was. It was secret, after all!
In the shadow of the goblin attack, Sandpoint is hardly interested in finishing up the Swallowtail Festival— citizens retreat to their homes to hide and recover from the day’s horrors, yet as they go, many take the time to thank the “hearty band of Heroes” for saving them. Finally, before the end of the day, the “Stalwart Defenders” are approached by Ameiko Kaijitsu. The innkeeper has been quite impressed with the “Sandpoint Saviors” actions, and offers them free rooms at the Rusty Dragon for a week as a way to thank them for helping to defeat the goblins.
