The adventure begins in a tavern because the DM is not very creative.
In between the Dwendalian Empire and the Kryn Dynasty lies the Xhorhasian Wastes. The dense marshes, twisted forests, and steep cliffs make this area a tough environment for anyone. Travelers up and down The Honorwalk Road will sometimes stop at The Hidden Guest Pub for an evening’s rest before traveling a difficult path. As close as it is to The Brokenveil Marsh, travelers of all sorts are there. This evening, adventurers at random have chosen to meet here. On this fine evening, the bar is not too crowded and not too empty. The ravenite dragonborn fighter, Yvesryx comes in and takes a seat. The halfling bard, Shayna Tenpenny, observes the storyteller and offers music lessons. The goblin wizard, Barkevious Strink, orders some food and drink and has a seat. The half-elf druid, Brittney Hakshadow, sits and also orders some food and drink. The aracokra ranger, Skreech, has a seat and listens to the storyteller. The tabaxi rogue, Lightning Night by the Great Water, slinks in and orders food.
After they introduce themselves, the storyteller tells the party (known as La Fiesta) about a threat in the goblinoid village of Urzin. A seer, the goblin witch Bol'bara, has gone missing and the chief Buhfal thinks that the Dwendalian Empire is responsible.
La Fiesta rested for the evening and then travel to the village of Urzin. When they reached the village, they were surprised to se the village was constructed on the backs of horizonback tortoises. These 80 foot long and up to 50 foot high tortoises have a symbiotic relationship with the villagers. After meeting with the chief, he offers 200 GP for the return of his seer. He also offers a scout, Morgid, to guide through the Brokenveil Marsh. La Fiesta agrees and heads out. Because of the marshland, everywhere is rough, difficult terrain.
After a few hours, La Fiesta came upon a withered grove. Leaning against one of the trees was a skeleton with 15 SP in a pouch. As the party approached, two swarms of poisonous snakes attacked. After La Fiesta finished off the snakes, they continued on their way and then took a rest. A marvelous start of the adventure.
