Having traded with a Merchant at the Black Calf, the adventuring party set off towards Greenest, taking the day to travel with some rests. As they top a rise overlooking the town, just as the sun is setting, they can see that the town is under attack from a dragon. On heading closer into town, they see cultists, kobolds and other figures running through the streets, as a Blue dragon (albeit a rather disinterested one) prowls overhead.
The group decided to head into town along the stream, giving them a cover advantage. They first encountered a group of three guards and an acolyte. They decided to try talking to the figures, but Arlen shouting out ‘hey we’re the good guys’ put any kind of discussion to a premature halt and they were attacked.
Lia managed to shoot dead one of the guards in one shot, the other two proved more tricky to down, with their armor fending off most attacks. Arlen, Nemo and Avinia all took hits, and Lia was reduced to grovelling by the acolyte, but healing potions were put to good use to keep them fighting. After the other two guards and acolyte were defeated, Brykk used Cure Wounds to heal Nemo as well, bringing everyone back up to reasonable HP.
Heading away from the stream, towards the town’s Keep, they were attacked once again, this time by two Cultists and an Acolyte. One Cultist and the Acolyte were downed before they could dish out any serious damage, and one cultist remains.
