The Children

Lost Child

At the age of 11, the youngsters are near the edge of Dunwood gathering broken and cut branches. The adult woodsmen of Pinewood have cut down several trees and have moved on leaving the children the simple task of gathering up the smaller branches to be used as kindling. The children working at this location include Stefan, Gregori, Ansilin, Rhon, Krist, Karea, Erik, Uwe and Heidi. After lunch Heidi realizes Krist, the youngest, is missing. Checking the edge of the forest they can see her trail leading into the forest. Stefan, Gregori, Ansilin and Heidi decide to follow the trail in the hope of finding Krist before it gets dark.

The trail eventually leads into Bogfield Swamp. After a couple of hours they come across a large reptile with Krist’s body in its maw. After a fight they kill it, only to find Krist truly dead. Unfortunately, the retile had managed to call to its pack and more reptiles are converging on the spot. The players run into the swamp soon becoming lost.

Old Temple

Lost in Bogfield Swamp and nightfall approaching, the party finds a slightly higher piece of ground. There are low walls from an ancient ruin to provide cover during the night. While searching for some dry wood, a trap door is found under the grass.

The first level down contains 2 waterlogged storage rooms. Next level down contains a room with a sacrificial altar wherein the blood is allowed to drip down to another level down below through a grate in the floor. On the walls in the room before the next set of stairs down are four painted murals. Progress on the next level is impeded by a locked door without any visible means of opening it. Upon further inspection a slight indentation is seen in the tile work on the door. Going back to the room with the murals they see that in a picture is a soldier holding a trident and upon touching that part of the picture the head of the trident comes off. Going back to the door the trident fits into the indentation and the door opens.
