The heroes met in Tarimos, Argon Hold. This major bastion of civilization in the northern reaches of the kingdom has been struggling with a particularly nasty increase in goblin activity in recent months. The guilds and merchants of Tarimos are demanding action!
Traveling northward, the party discovered the remains of small caravan, and were then almost immediately set upon by goblins. Quickly vanquishing their enemies, further investigation revealed hundreds of goblins in the area. The party wisely retreated to warn the city of what they had discovered, but were ambushed on the way back.
Emerging victorious, the heroes discovered a crumpled note that contained a variety of components. Some were mundane, others were fairly expensive drugs, and one was a fable: Stoneheart.
