The Muckrakers vs The World

The Story So Far

Following their victory against Kalarel in the Keep on the Shadowfell, the Muckrakers were asked to journey to Thunderspire Labyrinth to investigate the Bloodreavers, a group of hobgoblin slavers that has been harassing the local towns.

Shortly after arriving in Thunderspire Labyrinth, they encountered a group of hobgoblins attacking Rendil Halfmoon. After rescuing him, they returned him to his aunt, Erra Halfmoon, proprietor of the Halfmoon Inn in the Seven-Pillared Hall. She was so grateful that she offered the group free room and board for the duration of their stay. Rendil confirmed that the hobgoblins they rescued him from were Bloodreavers, and agreed to guide them to the Bloodreavers’ hideout in the Chamber of Eyes.

Before setting out, The Muckrakers explored the hall and met with many of the locals. Sister Lenora, a visiting priestess of Avandra, asked the group to look into the kidnapping of a dozen villages from Riverdown. Wynn Longsaddle, a messenger for the Mages of Saruun, asked the group to help her deal with a group of gargoyles that have been harassing her. Gendar, proprietor of Gendar’s Curios and Relics, offered to pay the group to retrieve an item from the labyrinth for him. Ulthand Deepgem of the Deepgem Company, asked the group to help find his beloved lost pet boar, Stankchops.

After being guided to the Chamber of Eyes, the Muckrakers attempted to bluff their way into the locked hideout, but ended up alerting the guards. During the ensuring combat, the group saw no sign of the captives from Riverdown. Following the brutal slaughter of everyone they found in the hall, including assorted hobgoblins, human mercenaries, a bugbear, a dire wolf, and two visiting Duergar, the group found a letter outlining a contract to purchase the Riverdown slaves for 1000 gold. It was signed by Murkelmor Grimmerzhul.

Muckrakers Break the Curse of the Werewolf

The Muckrakers hired Terrlen Darkseeker to guide them through the Labyrinth. While journeying through a deep passage, Terrlen suddenly transformed into a werewolf and attacked the group. They successfully subdued him, and when he turned back to human, he explained that he had no memory of the attack, but he remembered something odd happening when exploring a chamber called the House of Silence, and he touched a large bronze disc.

The group agrees to journey to the chamber and break the curse. After fighting their way through a flame trap, a group of hellhounds and a mad wraith, the group found the disc, and shattered it, breaking the curse. Terrlen was extremely grateful, agreeing to guide the group in the labyrinth for free anytime they need.

There was also a bit of a showdown between the group and their rogue, who they caught trying to rip the group off by not sharing treasure. They weren’t able to get him to confess the details or turn over whatever he had stolen, so after a lengthy back and forth, the group agreed to withhold the rogue’s share of treasure.
