A stalwart band set forth from the Slaughtered Lamb on the first day of the new year. Determined to discover the truth of the rumored death of dread Ogre known as Red Hook.
Fate smiled upon the party as their guide was led to the correct path by the party’s own woodsman. Travel was easy, but nearing dark on the second day a group of bandits was discovered. A furious battle ensued and soon the cowards were brought to task for their wrongs. Three of the villains reformed on the spot and told a tale of horror.
The ogre had been captured and chained by the bandit’s leader and his companion. The former master was now little more than a guard dog for the massive band of miscreants.
The Bandit lord had scattered his men far and wide and before the party could find the lair of Red Hook they encountered another group of bandits. Quick wits prevailed and a grisly death at the hands of 20 bloodthirsty bandits was avoided.
Once the lair was discovered the watchmen were dispatched and the bandits bested. The second in command died defending his lord who bravely… fled. But the dread Ogre remained. Silent as death two of the party crept to the Ogre’s cell. Swift arrows found their mark piercing one of the great beasts eyes and his heart. The Ogre was slain and the day won.
