Our brave heroes decided to take a short rest before continuing, triggering an ingenious Kobold trap. The ground beneath Rhogar and Leiana opened, swallowing them up. It would be days before they would be able to make their escape and rejoin the group.
Ama, Yurthen, and Alda continued on. They triumphed against the Kobold's Champion and his Fire Beetle pet, and learned that his tribe had come under the influence of something they called "The Fire King."
They brought this intelligence back to the Council of Five in Cytheria, only to discover that the council did not seem the most reputable of ruling bodies. During their meeting, a flamboyantly dressed man in a mask appeared. He knocked over Head Councilman Fink, stealing some official looking papers that the Councilman was carrying.
Ama recognized this masked man as the Daring Dragoon, a folk hero who was known to fight against the establishment for the common folk. Yurthen aided the Dragoon's escape, then took off after him along with Alda.
Ama remained behind to attempt to talk their way out of trouble. She managed to convince the Council not to arrest them all – provided the party brought them the head of the Dragoon within 24 hours.
Yurthen and Alda caught up with the Dragoon, and set up a meeting to discuss their common goals.
The Party rejoined, and located the head of a man who had been recently executed for High Tax Evasion. They put a duplicate of the Dragoon's mask on this head, and successfully passed it off as the Daring Dragoon.
Rhogar and Leiana will hopefully be able to escape from the hole soon.
