Rumours and Information 11

Rumours and Information known after the Cundall’s Hole adventure, where the party went to find out what had happened to Olon and the Protectors of Elventree.

  • You want treasure? Keep going until you get to an oak grove about 50 miles south of Elventree. It’s thick with bats, most of them ordinary insect-eaters, with a few assorted bigger and nastier types, including the black bats larger than a man called “sinisters”. Find an oak whose trunk diameter equals exactly half the wingspan of one of the male sinisters; male Elven Court sinisters have white mouths. Scrape the bark from the oak— the “tree” is solid gold. An elven mage accomplished this before his death, apparently to keep his treasure safe from grave robbers.
    Which oak, you ask? Beats me. Good luck.
  • Olon, wizard and Underdark sage, has died in the Underdark, victim of a demon influenced kuo toa tribe. The Protectors of Elventree are in disarray after they were also captured by the same kuo toa tribe, and their leader Tobias Proudfoot died in the attack. The Heroes of Hillsfar rescued them, but were unable to recover Olon’s or Tobias’ body.
  • Magarl Helck is the Red Plume commandant in charge of the wooden keep now plugging Cundall’s Hole. He is a corrupt officer who had been trading weapons with the Underdark races, although he lost some men to the kuo toa tribe that were influenced by demons.
  • Guard Commandant Vuhm Yestral has been banished to command the Red Plume garrison at Yulash, after accusing Gheriot, the Hillsfar Arena’s Master of Games, of being a demon and working against the interests of Hillsfar.
