Having defeated a group of goblins on the second floor of a ruined tower…The party hears the howl of wolves from above. They venture up the spiral stairs and face more goblins. Bad news. These goblins keep wolves as pets. After pushing past the attack wolves they find a filthy throne room of a goblin underboss. The party fights bravely. Twice, Torweegois struck down. His comrade's Eron and Grit help revive him. Mattigan, the quick footed ranger isn't quick enough. He falls into a pit trap laid by the goblins. It is not Gorn's day. Failure is his mantra this day. However he manages to help his comrades somewhat. Following their victory they search the room and find a secret compartment in a jeweled throne. Rokudo, the party's guide finds what he's looking for: The Eye of The Crane. After returning to the Crane Garden, the Eye is replaced in a central monument. Life returns to the garden and Rokudo's master, Jomon meets the party.
Jomonis an exiled member of the Kingdom of the Sun. He is the steward and de facto ruler of the House of the Crane. He's grateful for the help from our group of heros and he asks them to help find his brother Noroand his sister Shava. He doesn't know where to start looking.. but ou heros do.
That brings them to Fallcrest. The Moonsong temple is the home of the most expansive library and archive in the region. After a partially successful negotiation with a young monk, Andur Larendawn they find some leads that may send them on their way.
A document called "The Epic of Harkane" describes a dismembered hero being buried in the Sword Barrows.
In "The Sutra's of Pelor" Which describes the works of the Nuns of the Sunstone Abbey… it says the nuns took in a young girl exiled by her kingdom.
The current Gardmore Abbey is built on the ruins of the Sunstone Abbey.
there was young girl of royalty hidden away by the Nuns of the original Gardmore Abbey.
Another source shows a treaty brokered among he Crane House. The House of the Crab and the House of the Lily… this was arbitrated by a group who could now be connected to the Woodsinger Elves of the Harken Forest.
Finally..A prophecy found in a document Called " Sol Ta'karth" or The "Chronicle of the Sun Kings."....Says if the Kingdom of the Sun and it's balance is disrupted… there will be a great calamity across the land. A demon ruler may rise to power if Only the Arbiters can prevent the bloodshed and terror that could result if the houses of the sun are allowed to reign. Only the Arbiters can bring peace.
After they find this information Adur delivers this warning…It may be too late… the demon ruler may already be loose!
