Since I last wrote so much has happened. I do not have a lot of time to update because there is so much to do when running a new settlement.
We have defeated the Stag Lord, though it wasn’t easy. A great but clumsy battle was fought in the dead of night and we were victorious. We would not have won if it was for Jud, who managed to keep us fighting even when things seemed bleakest. The bandit layer had a great amount of treasure hidden inside, which helped us to begin our new settlement.
With all of our old friends to help us, we have created Riverton (named after the late Skylarr River). It is a small town where anyone is welcome, and all can call home. Though we had some trouble with Kobal/human relations, all that was soon settled. It isn’t easy running a place like this, trying to control large groups of humanoids is like herding fae.
Even with those problems we still manage to survive this harsh land. Every month new settlers come and farm the fertile lands or live in town. Just the a week ago a group came to start a mine right near the Kobals. I so desperately want them to fit into with out settlement, and Chief Suitscales and I are working together to make it happen.
All of our friends from out adventuring days are helping with running this rag tag settlement. Everyone had their part to play, even those who didn’t want settlers to begin with. It’s nice to finally feel like this place is home, even if it is a little wild.
That being said, life still goes on here. Just this month we celebrated the wedding of Calliope and Jud. It was a beautiful ceremony, and I prayed to Shelyn that their marriage be filled with love and understanding. I made all the clothes for the event, and though resources are scarce, everything came together beautifully.
Unfortunately some news came just now of a dragon in our north most lands. We shall go and bring it down, less the beast destroy important crops. I am sure we will be victorious.
Update: We beat the drake, and have brought it’s body back with us to use it’s skins for armor. It will help keep our small band of protectors safer than the simple leather, though we need someone to make such armor, since not many around know the art of crafting such fine wears.
