Moonday, 5th of Gozrik, 3156 AR
Everyone, for their own reasons, finds themselves part of a caravan headed north out of Leibourne. The month long journey across the Cascade Range to the fledgling duchy of Kent over the snowy mountains promises to be a trying ordeal.
The caravan consists of 10 wagons total. The merchant Mr. Bill has his personal wagon, 4 wagons loaded with construction goods, and the chuck wagon. Close behind the chuck wagon comes Gary the Great, a very odd bard. Following him are the homesteaders, Mark and Diane Cartwright with their 16 yo son Steven, and John and Sarah Smith with their 15 yo daughter Lynnette. Bringing up the rear is Drevan and his wagon.
Andrik was hired by Mr. Bill, the merchant running the caravan, to be an advanced scout, making sure the next days route was clear by keeping a day ahead of the caravan.
Eyth Braigon Draug was also hired as a scout by Mr. Bill, keeping the perimeter patrolled.
Torin Thunderkeg was hired by Mr. Bill as a caravan guard, and rides along on Mr. Bills personal wagon.
UnJak Rastan paid Mr. Bill for passage, and rides along with Tony on the Chuck Wagon.
Drevan Raniuthas is following along behind Mr. Bills caravan, which Mr. Bill is ok with as long as Drevan keeps his alchemy lab wagon at the back of the line.
Gilsa Lobly has stowed aboard one of the homesteader wagons in the caravan.
The trip was uneventful until the 8th day, when a log was found across the trail. Through sheer muscle, the obstruction was manhandled out of the way, and camp was set for the night.
Gilsa was found overnight, during which time Eyth, or Braigon as he is known, accosted Mrs. Cartwright in her wagon. Songs shall be written of this, to be sure.
The following day the Cartwright and Smith’s teenage children, Steven and Lynnette, were found missing. As a search party was formed, Andrik showed up to report a rock slide a day ahead blocking the planned route. He then joined the search party and the wayward teens were recovered.
Upon returning to camp, an alternate route was chosen and they got a good nights sleep, planning to head out the following morning. They had an uneventful journey, but ended up having to camp overnight on the snowy wind-blown landscape. In the morning, it was discovered the teenagers were missing. Again.
Mr. Bill said he would take the caravan down to lower ground, and for everyone to catch up. It took 6 hours, but they managed to find the pair, retrieve the wagons and continue on, only to find a bit more then they expected, including a dog to be named Lucky.
