Session 1 Recap
Finding themselves with some common interests, the group is persuaded to join the Harpers by Fine. Evading some pursuit, the group regathers and heads out of Neverwinter.
Heading north along the high road toward the Harpers camp, they stumble across a human sacrifice, with the entire village of Hirot participating. Deeming that unacceptable, the sacrifice is freed and a horrific hound, the size of a horse, is fought off. Though Aaron is savaged, he seems remarkable well after he recovers consciousness, with his wounds almost magically vanishing.
In Hirot, the group splits up and investigates what has occurred. Trying to meet with the Jarl, Annashael negotiates for horses from his lickspittle Syll Ru. In exchange for a betrothal vow to the hag Ymrie, Aaron secures a net of human hair which she claims can capture the beast.
The group decides to head to the burial mound of the hero of the wolf spear, with a plan to recover the spear as a means to slay the hound of Hirot. Guided by Ymrie’s advice, the placate the serpent spirit and enter the tomb. Inside they evade a spiked pit, and fight a pair of ghouls, who have serpent spirits with human heads erupt out of them. The barbarian Gronn has pilfered a cloak that allows him to berserk an additional time, and Aaron has a new helmet. And that’s where we leave our heroes for now, in the depths of a barbarian burial mound.
