Drawn by the rumor that the Frontier Reach would be reopened to exploration, this party of four intrepid adventurers were the first to enter the territory. One of King Thumin Arroway’s high advisers, the priestess Corvyre, announced the opening of the territory and asked the adventurers to retrieve a certain mushroom, as it was the only cure for a disease which afflicted the son of King Arroway.
The tavernkeep at the Kind Conjurer, Inder, suggested they seek out Farmer Bean at his farm, who further recommended they look for an old druid who used to live nearby. After encountering some wild dogs and roving orcs, they located the druid’s dilapidated hut, evidently abandoned for about a decade or so. Inside, they found a painted shield which led them to a nearby cave filled with fungus. They retrieved the mushroom they sought, though not without raising the ire of some leshies. Returning via the farm, they gave a large quantity of copper coins to Farmer Bean as thanks. Back in the town of Pioneer’s Folly, Corvyre rewarded the party handsomely before departing for the capital.
Excited from their adventure, the party decided to make a second foray, seeking artifacts of the Company of Fourteen. They happened upon evidence of recent hunting activity, but elected to investigate the old windmill instead. There they found the windmill to be haunted, and buried beneath it, a labyrinthine complex of catacombs. While the rest of the party fought a trio of skeletons, Tungsten investigated possible poltergeist activity. Bowain nearly died when he and Nameless triggered a trap while attempting to retrieve some platinum coins. The party retreated back to Pioneer’s Folly to lick their wounds.
