The campaign starts out in Cloud forest where Lea the druid and Shoka the ranger are traveling to the Elf city of Taebaek for assistance. Along the way they come across Rahit the fighter and Niamh the cleric. They are told that the elves are not holding any audiences and are unwilling to help anyone at this time for unknown reasons.
Niamh is seeking aid for the swamps where there is a nymph village being attacked by a neighboring village in Novaya. He offers his aid with the dryad plight in exchange that they help him in the swamps. The four travel to Ailmar, the Dryad city to the north, to find more willing to help.
They head to the bar where they hear a dwarf gunslinger, Drek, complaining about the ale selections. He offers his aid in their quest. They also encounter Aranita the bard, who after a rough start, befriends Niamh and offers her aid as well.
After everything settles, Drek pulls out his rations of dwarven ale and is approached by Tomi the fighter. He offers his aid in their journey as well, wishing that along the way he may find answers to his missing family members. After a long day, the group decides to rest up before the next day’s journey to the East.
