Our stalwart heroes find themselves in the Nentir Vale, in the city of Fallcrest. Quinn, Soothy Selacious, and Flint have known each other for about a year, taking odd jobs wherever they could. The nature of these jobs run the gamut; anything from clearing out the locals latrines (an activity which Flint in particular seems to enjoy thoroughly), to the occasional clearing of a vermin problem from someone’s cellar.
A few months ago, our intrepid party picked up Ghesh, a Dragonborn skilled in the art of smashing barrels, and Faland, a particularly inept Tiefling rogue, who has an affinity for falling from walls. These two new additions were replacements for two members they had lost in a recent excursion into the local butcher’s basement. He had a cockroach problem that hadgrown out of control. These cockroaches were much tougher than the group had expected.
