The intrepid adventurers of Team SHAG arrived in a Corellon’s Folly hardened and besieged by a long, gruesome war with the nearby forest’s fey inhabitants over land and logging rights. Arjhan’s plan to cross through the forest with his caravan seemed impossible now, given that the forest he wished to cross is now a war zone. Also, given that SHAG’s members include an elf, a shifter druid, and a wilden, the party felt less than welcome.
So when Rowena stumbled upon a traitorous soldier with a possible plot to sabotage the Corellon’s Folly war effort that would win them the service of a local fey guide that could lead them through the forest, the team jumped at the chance.
And what a chance it was! Grendl, our wilden rogue, was tasked with sneaking into a castle packed with racist guards. She could not hope to succeed by stealth alone. Tyffani entreated a well connected yet perverse halfling merchant named Higgins to reveal that secret passages leading inside the castle walls could be found in almost every temple in the city. Kyran managed, with no small degree of deception, to convince a local cleric of Pelor to allow them use of their passage.
Once inside, Grendl and Rambolina snuck over the castle wall. As they were nearing a high window leading into the castle’s interior, Grendl and Rambolina were captured by guards.
Rorick also tried to sneak inside. In a way, he succeeded. Mostly he failed: he is less than light footed even when he isn’t wearing scale mail. Though, when he was caught by the guards, he impersonated a drunk guard claiming to have lost his halberd. They escorted him to the beds in the barracks. When word of his companion’s capture reached Rorick, he issued a rousing speach that drove the guards out into the night to sate their bloodlust. When everyone had left, Rorick made off with disguises for the rest of his companions, in hopes of staging an escape attempt.
