Our Heroes awoke within the cold confines of the Eternium Prison. There cell mates were thugs known as the Redbrands who wore flowing crimson cloaks and an emperor by the name of Pavel Griffin.
Harbinger found a secret passageway hidden by a candle lever. The Redbrands quickly took advantage of this stealing away the emperor in hopes of selling him as a hostage and barring the door so our heroes could not follow.
Ken Rock and Harbinger did not give up and broke through a weak wall and continued through the natural caverns that seemed to form around the prison walls. They fought rabid rats, the strange Kua-Toa, as well as a Gray Ooze. Harbinger even used a javelin to cut down a hidden sack filled with small sapphires.
As they exited the caverns our heroes climbed down a steep ledge back into a hole in the prison. There they found the corpses of the Redbrand gang-members. Their chests the incubators for horrible tadpole creatures.
At the far end of the wall they came to see the creature who created these horrors. A great red Slaadi. A hulking red frog-like demon. It ripped apart the final Redbrand. While it was busy our heroes quickly escaped with the emperor into a room with a strange portal in it.
Here the emperor gave Harbinger his Amulet of Kings and with his dying wish asked it be brought to his Queen. Then the Slaadi broke through the door and the Emperor destroyed the portal’s crystals before succumbing to the creature within, dying a painful death.
Now our heroes awake in a strange and dark forest, with nothing but the unknown ahead of them.
