Lost World Adventures

The Lair of the Lobreds
The Adventure Begins...

Seven seasons ago, a team of prospectors discovered a small deposit of bdellium in a canyon near the village of Shar in the province of Asshur. According to Asshurian law, the find would stay in the hands of the small village and its families. Bdellium being highly sought after, the ore deposit promised to bring prosperity to the people of Shar and several families abandoned their daily trades to relocate to the site and construct a small mining camp. A passage was cut into the canyon face where the deposit had been discovered and the ore began to flow from the new mine into the village some days travel away. The mine was isolated, but by all accounts the region of the Iron Mountains where it lay was known to be wild, stable and trouble-free…
Then one day, a child belonging to one of the families at the camp staggered from the woods and was discovered by the villagers of Shar battered and malnourished. He could barely relate to them a tale of fire and death, of monsters who had fallen from the trees and taken or killed everyone he had known or loved. Despite the efforts of the village healers, the child fell soon after – from exposure or a broken heart, no one knew. Shar was a village of farmers and craftsman. There were no warriors and never any need for them. Even so, rage and fear fell over the village people and two bands were assembled. One was composed of a few of the bravest men who would journey to the mining camp, see justice done and, hopefully, bring back the missing families. The other was dispatched to the nearby forest town of Esper three days travel away, to alert the local authorities and, hopefully, to bring help.
It had been several passings since the horrific loss of the camp and an assembly of magistrates and enforcers in Esper, having heard the news from the delegates from Shar, assigned a small team of specialists to ascertain the nature of these strange events. Together with the delegates, they travelled back to the village only to discover that the men who had mounted the first rescue attempt were never seen again. They immediately set forth into the wild to challenge an unknown enemy and, God willing, to save innocent lives from certain death…
