Scales of War Adventure

Caden's Cipher 133

12th day of Flower Blooms, 435 AoS

Since the strange team of adventurers has returned, they have been honored as heroes of Bordrin’s Watch. Xul returned for a short visit and I told her of Irranda. I mentioned the name Modra but she didn’t react. She either already knew the name or has more pressing business elsewhere. She is a hard one to read but I may have a use for her later. For now, she has left the city on personal business.

I am keeping tabs on these adventurers. They seem to attract fate. They have spent time training and resting. Recently, I learned they were attacked by Lost Ones from Tradestown. It seems that Garret the Deft lost a couple of his Lost Ones in the encounter. Rumzog Witchtwister was able to join their team by happening along at the right time. It seems Modra ordered the hit through Garret. From there, the team began tracking down clues about Modra. With their ears open they heard numerous rumors, a few even I hadn’t heard:

  • “The threat of the orcs might be ended after the siege of Bordrin’s Watch, but word from the frontier is there’s more trouble on the march. Just like Tusk’s clan, the rabble of the mountains are getting their hands on good-grade weapons and armor, and they’re looking to use it.”
  • “You get all races in Overlook, but the dark ones that pass through the city keep to themselves. More often than not, those you do see are in the company of bodyguards and enforcers.”
  • “Someone by the name ‘Modra’ was said to be buying information a few months back, looking for those with experience mining the old caverns of the Stonehome.”
  • “Modra is a dark creeper, and well known in the city’s criminal underworld.”
  • “It’s said that the dark creeper Modra brokers weapons and armor through the Overlook black markets.”
  • “Modra met up with a shadar-kai witch a month ago. Some said she was doing a deal for weapons, but she didn’t look much like a warrior.”
  • “The far traders coming into Overlook talk of more and more trouble on the roads. They say the Red Hand of Doom was behind what happened in Brindol a few months past, but there’s more cults than that on the rise across the frontier.”
  • “The dark creeper is just the front man for arms dealing in the city. No one knows who’s behind the operation, but rumor says it’s bigger than anyone in Overlook will ever know.”
  • “Modra was in the city three weeks past, but he was keeping a low profile. He had a squad of dark creepers with him, must have figured they’d stand out.”
  • “Last time anyone saw Modra was just before the raid on Bordrin’s Watch. I heard he’s been on the run since then. Some job that went bad.”
