I have set my life upon a cast, And I will stand the hazard of the die.
Human Mines - Pits of Grimborne
One-Shot homebrew adventure hosted by the Dragons in Dungeons Meetup Group
The baron pauses and looks down at the floor, imbibing on his pipe. "Our caravans keep being looted by bandits. Goblins have been reported lootiing farm houses. Even walking dead have been spotted at the entrance to the mines.."
"We have all come back to Grimborne to re-establish what was taken from us during the orc wars. Our hope has been to re-open the mines and re-settle the north." The baron looks you all in the eyes. "The militia has been disbanded. We need your help. The village will pay you handsomely."
As members of the Red Hawk Mercenaries, you know that removing bandits and taking down goblins is the work you do. You will make haste to make a safe and clear path to the mines.
The only hesitation you possess comes from the resemblance of these incidents to the Orc Wars. After figthing for years and watching comrades fall, you have have accepted that the orcs were disbanded and dispatched. Perhaps they and their goblinoid crew have somehow survived and are plotting a return.
Nonetheless, for honor, glory and reward, you will make Grimborne safe once again.
