D&D Encounters : Search for the Diamond Staff - Session 6 RECAP

Ruins of Uvaeren
The adventurers have been hot on the trail of mercenaries who stole a powerful artifact. Those mercenaries, the Zhentarim, stole the fabled Diamond Staff and took it to the Vault of Song (famous ruins). By unearthing clues, the adventurers were able to track down the Zhentarim in the ruins of Uvaeren (in the forest) and traveled to the entrance. Thick spiderwebs coated the forest around the opening of the ruins, and the Zhentarim’s horses looked spooked as the heroes ventured forth.

Rogue Agents
Last week the adventurers continued on the trail for the missing Diamond Staff. After meeting and dealing with the Sembian Mage Barcero, the group learned that he was the original person who wanted the Diamond Staff.

The Fangfist Lair
You’ve followed the trail of those nasty Orcs that stole the Diamond Staff. After working your way through the misty forests north of Hap, you tracked them to a temporary lair. A deep, dark cave, with gnarled roots twisting from the entrance, served as the Orcs’ stopping point.

The drip, drip, drip of errant water in the cave mixed with the darkness and humidity to create an uncomfortable and eerie atmosphere. As the adventurers explored deeper into the cavern they spotted three horses tied up near the entrance. What was going on here? Who was hiding here? Tying up horses didn’t seem like something an Orc would do, so it was time to explore deeper into the caves.
