Goblins Hunt for Slaves

(Therenborough, Therengia: 60 Ka’len 358)

A frightened human Paladins who looks like gnome walks into the bar, takes a quick glance around, then relaxs and settles in in front of Baresh. He takes off his gnomish disguise and orders a drink.

‘Howdy there Baresh, I have quite a story to tell you today.’

‘You see, I was out hunting, minding my own business when I hear about a goblin archer in Dirge. Well this leads to that and the next thing ya know, I’m standing near the bank along with about 20 other people. From what I’ve heard, a goblin scout was carrying a piece of parchment saying something about bribing the guards, taking a rest at Ash Town (Dirge) and then heading for Fish Town (Riverhaven) along with a caravan of some sort.

The caravan was carrying slaves, humans and halflings to be exact and as I was getting caught up on this information there was a small invasion of goblin archers and boggles. They were quickly dispatched, and things were soon peaceful again.

Suddenly, we heard a cry of "Capture them all!" in the distance.

We then heard the cries of humans being carted off. We concluded that they must have set off for Haven, so we all got a gated to the ferry. We were soon outside the Empath guild just waiting around. I decided to check out the Riverhaven Warehouse and the Traders Guild since the caravan was most likely disguised as a normal caravan. Well I got the warehouse and fell off these crates. Then a halfling pulled some sort of rope and I fell into the river. I’m now stuck under the Riverhaven wharf so I don’t know what happened after my accident.’

The paladin puts his gnomish costumeck on, and turns to leave. as he steps out the door, he yells, "Oh and by the way Baresh, could you be a friend and send someone down to that wharf to free me? Thanks!"

Baresh started working at the Wren’s Nest when it first opened in 349AL. He’s been hearing the news and pouring drinks ever since then.
