The Imperial Wrecking Crew

The Ironworks
Collapsing mountain? Not the first. Not the last.

The group manages to reach their goal. First, they kidnap the chief Krondorian engineer and his family. The Krondorians are surprisingly willing to go, and reveal that this type of thing has happened before.

After that, things get violent. The Ironworks is assaulted under cover of darkness. Numerous guards die. However, they’re not the main problem. The massive slave population, many thousands, must be evacuated before the facility can be destroyed.

A recovered amulet provides the key as Nahtar reluctantly seizes control over thousands of slaves to order them out. The signal is sent to Liad, and he descends in the massive stolen Krondorian airship. After the last of the slaves is aboard the group takes the ground route out while Krondor’s greatest military asset crumbles beneath their feet.

The Imperial Wrecking Crew has wrecked well this day.

Next stop – a port city. It turns out that Krondorian technology originates in a far off land, and it must be tracked and destroyed if there is to be any peace.

The Infiltration of Krondor
We buy slaves...for justice!

The Krondorians are indeed unaware of The Imperial Wrecking Crew’s presence. The illusion is maintained with Roy posing as a powerful foreign merchant prince. Purporting to trade in wine, the complete lack of any wine to trade rears it’s ugly head. Only some fast talking from Roy, and the occasional cunning distraction of his giant babbling eunuch servant, saves the day.

The Crew sees Krondorian horror and cruelty at its worse inside a gladiatorial slave city. Reluctantly, they are forced to compromise impeccable moral character and good taste by purchasing slaves, bribery, and gladiatorial attendance.

Roy is personally assigned the slave gladiator Dar, who quickly learns of the group’s true mission. Things go badly when Gerune makes a second attempt to enlighten another purchased slave. The magic binding him is far more crushing than what binds gladiators, and the slave almost loses his mind.

The group is almost exposed again when elven wizard Nahtar, posing as Roy’s steward, encounters a Banite bounty hunter wearing a necklace of elven ears. Things might have degenerated into open combat, but the bounty hunter leaves town that night. He neglected to tell his allies, though, and they worriedly search for him. Perhaps Nahtar’s disrespectful reply, “I don’t know where the hell he is”, prompts them to search the wagon. Only an enraged Roy and hysterical Gregor convince them otherwise without starting a full fledged battle.

Required to leave the city that night, the group continues on towards their goal: The Ironworks.

Hammerfall
Begin the siege of Krondor!

The wagon is upgraded with stables, special horses, and even more important – a primitive spelljamming helm. The helm allows passage over steep grades, rough terrain, and even small canyons.

We are instructed to attack Krondor’s main ironworks. Rescue the slaves, then raze it to the ground. A path is cleared and the journey begins.

An outlying tower is encountered shortly after entering Krondor. It is utterly leveled by Gregor and his Hammer of Tempest. Surviving troops flee the rubble in terror only to be cut down by the Crew. One poor soul finds the upgraded wagon can now lurch short distances by goosing its helm. Crushed.

The Crew regroups to continue on. There were no survivors, so with luck Krondor remains ignorant of the attack for a little longer.

Welcome to your Adventure Log!
A blog for your campaign

Every campaign gets an Adventure Log, a blog for your adventures!

While the wiki is great for organizing your campaign world, it’s not the best way to chronicle your adventures. For that purpose, you need a blog!

The Adventure Log will allow you to chronologically order the happenings of your campaign. It serves as the record of what has passed. After each gaming session, come to the Adventure Log and write up what happened. In time, it will grow into a great story!

Best of all, each Adventure Log post is also a wiki page! You can link back and forth with your wiki, characters, and so forth as you wish.

One final tip: Before you jump in and try to write up the entire history for your campaign, take a deep breath. Rather than spending days writing and getting exhausted, I would suggest writing a quick “Story So Far” with only a summary. Then, get back to gaming! Grow your Adventure Log over time, rather than all at once.
