E18: HOARD OF THE DRAGON QUEEN (SESSION 7: DOPPELGANGERS, DAGGERFORD AND A DEATH)




The caravan continues northward. Next stop: Daggerford. But before then, Erzo (Drow Rogue) is going to spend  time intimidating passengers and use the nighttime hours to stealthily open crates in his insatiable search for loot. Mulinex (Elf Ranger/Druid) spends his time charming a young lady in a tavern at a Way Station, but is in for a surprise as to her identity. Two new NPCs are introduced into the campaign: a mischievous  gnome quite adept at circumlocution, and a mysterious human wearing a wool hat over his bald head... hmmm, what does that mean? Listen in for some clues.

E17: HOARD OF THE DRAGON QUEEN (SESSION 6: BODACIOUS BLONDE-HAIRED ELF BIMBOS AT BALDUR'S GATE... AND BEYOND)




The PCs depart Beregost, continuing on their northward trek along The Coast Way, eventually reaching Baldur's Gate. Once there, they check out a magic shop, then, via an intermediary, head over to a tavern to meet with a Paladin, who provides them with an important contact which allows the PCs to travel as guards with a caravan, soon to depart the city. In tow with this caravan are suspected members of the Cult of the Dragon, including a bunch of weirdo theatre performers pretending to be Adventurers. Intrigue, awkward NPC encounters and combat ensue.
