Hero's Unknown

The King on this side

Early the following morning a strange haze approached the camp, impossibly dense and even more impossibly wide and tall. Preparing for the worst they readied themselves for combat, when suddenly the mist dropped revealing a massive army of around 6000 foot soldiers and 100 mounted cavalry and a massive grey creature with a long trunk, carrying a howdah with around a dozen men in it.
Meeting with the general they agreed to travel with him to his kings city to discuss terms.They arrived in a large port city made of solid stone, with a populace to rival the largest cities on the other end of the continent. They met with King Aurum, a man of impossible power and might. They signed a contract with him stating they would destroy the library for free passage in his lands.

And so the party set off north in search of the library.

Day 16
Denizens of the mountain

Traveling late into the night the heroes began their descent into the unknown lands to the west. They were suddenly beset by goblins, vicious little things, but again the skill of the party shown through as they dispatched them easily. After a few more hours had passed they heard the sound of beating wings and galloping hooves. A curious creature came to stand before them, the face of a man, the wings of a giant eagle and the body of steed, all a chestnut color stood before them and spoke into their minds. He answered many questions and claimed to be the guardian of the mountain. They felt at ease knowing such a powerful creature watched over them on this mountain.

The feeling of ease was not one to last long, while they rested at camp the young dwarven priestess heard a terrible noise while she stood watch over her companions. The splintering sound of trees snapping and heavy thunderous footfalls were heading in their direction. She roused everyone and they quickly formed a plan to lead the giant away and redirect it to cause no harm to the dwarves at the base of the mountain. The Ranger sent his faithful wolf after the giant to distract it and lead it away some miles south along the mountain. The heroes made it to the small fortress the dwarves were constructing and the wolf returned unharmed.

Arrival at Lonely Meadow

The caravan arrived without any more attacks, the denizens of the mountain seeming to be aware of the prowess of this large group. Shortly before their arrival Djarus heard the warcry of a dragon, him knowing some of the evil tongue of dragonkin, surprisingly the challenge was answered by a dragon of unknown alignment. Thane Hammerthrow warned the group to not go seeking trouble, showing his ravaged arm from battles with dragons of below. The heroes dispersed throughout Lonely Meadow to await the meeting with King Warbeard the following day.

Thane Hammerthrow and his aide Valaxis of Hammercrash, a devout worshiper, handled most of the main force while the heroes of cart 11 laid two of their number to earth needing no assistance, handling themselves easily, as if the Gods guided their weapons themselves.
