After following the map the party found in Easthaven and finding a trail in the mountains, the imposing duergar fortress soon looms before them. Sunblight is a solid stone skyscraper, hundreds of feet tall, built directly into the mountain. A staircase built into the rock leads them to the only entrance, halfway up.

Thankfully, one of the Marshals has a plan to get inside.

No D&D next week – Happy Thanksgiving!

The Marshals leave Karkolohk and head east, finally stopping to Long Rest near the Ten Trail road. Spellix begs them to drop him off at the nearest town, but the Marshals are insist on checking up on his supposed pirate treasure location first.

Unfortunately for Spellix, they’re not abandoning their current plans of heading toward the duergar fortress of Sunblight.

But what kind of DM would I be if they travel 30 miles across the tundra unscathed?

The goblin chieftain of Karkolohk is really Spellix Romwod, a crafty gnome sorcerer. When his adventuring companions were captured by goblins, he donned a disguise in a rescue attempt. But upon seeing the goblins’ plight and squalor, he abandoned his companions in favor of helping the goblins through magic and technology.

While his former companions (whom he never really liked) were eaten, Spellix helped design tools, vehicles, and weapons for the goblins, culminating in an entire new home, a grand fortress in the mountains. When their old chieftain died, Spellix was quickly given the position by the impressed goblins, and he loved basking in their adoration.

But the everlasting winter has hit them hard. Food is becoming scarce, and the freezing weather isn’t letting up. Many goblins look to their chief for answers, or for blame.

Worried, he sent word out to ten towns looking for a “diplomatic envoy.” In truth he wanted them to send someone to help him escape from the goblins. Thankfully the Marshals answered the summons!
