Date: 28 Shortmoon – 2 Brisk Morn, YP7
The party continued through the Parafax Glade, sending the dire wolf back to the wagon to help Sunny guard and to recuperate. As the party ventured further in, they encountered a bigger treant, but the hellhounds quickly burned it to death as they have everything else.
They eventually made their way to a larger clearing with a huge pile of bones in its midst. As they approached most of the group turned around just in time to see Dastrk the Scourge of Parafax fly up and blast them all with a torrent of acid. An epic battle ensued, but after many cuts, slices, and acid sprays, a few well placed arrows from Rouqar finally felled the beast. Its death sent the beasts eldritch power across the battlefield, empowering our heroes even further.
They spent the next two days butchering the dragon and preparing as much of its corpse as they could gather for travel back to Grograt’s Holdfast. Through some ingenuity and an ample use of magic, the group augmented their strength enough that over half of the colossal creature’s corpse was able to be transported.
As they approached Grograt’s, tales of their trophy spread across the countryside, and they were greeted as heroes before a cheering throng when they rolled through the city’s gates. Folks from all around marveled at the band of heroes who had slain the legendary Scourge of Parafax. Mr Stone and his crew assisted the party in transporting the corpse to a secure warehouse, at which the party negotiated a very cushy payment for many of the dragon’s parts. Setanta also saved enough tenderloin to have a master chef start work on the preparation of about 300 pounds of fresh dragon.
With a fat coffer and coincidental local celebrity, the party rested and began planning for the next leg of their quest.
