Rise of the Runelords 3.75
The Sandpoint Five
The Sandpoint Five is the self-chosen name for the band of heroes who saved Sandpoint from the goblin raid on the day of the Swallowtail Festival of Desna. Since that attack, the group has helped the town (and the surrounding area) in several ways including:
- Cleared the goblin ‘fortress’ at Thistletop, routing the tribes and slaughtering their most powerful leader, Warchief Ripnugget.
- Confronted and killed the demon-obsessed, Nualia, who was using the goblins to honor her goddess, Lamashtu and gain revenge upon Sandpoint.
- Found and killed the Greater Barghest, Malfeshnekor, that had been lending its power to Nualia and the goblin tribes.
- Solved a series of grisly murders perpetrated by a former aristocrat and resident, Aldern Foxglove. In tracking the Dread Ghoul down, the party also purged his ancestral home, Foxglove Manor, of the lingering evil created by his grandfather, Vorel Foxglove.
- Tracked Aldern’s benefactor to Magnimar and uncovered a cult of bloodthirsty assassins and worshippers of Norgorber, the Skinsaw Cult.
- Hunted and ultimately killed the power behind this particular cult cell, a powerful lamia matriarch known as Xanesha.
- Routed a particularly nasty family of ogrekin known as the Kreegs who were instrumental in the stone giant raid on Fort Rannick.
- Saved the townsfolk of Turtleback Ferry from a potential dam burst and flood.
- Reclaimed Fort Rannick from the ogres. Karrnath is now the lord of this keep, with the blessing of the Mayor of Magnimar.
- Defeated the stone giants of Hook Mountain and their leader Barl Breakbones, who had led the assault on Fort Rannick.
- Reclaimed six of the Seven Swords of Sin in Kaer Maga, preventing them from being re-awakened and used by Mokmurian’s armies.
- Saved Sandpoint again, this time from a stone giant raid complete with red dragon reinforcements.
- Slew Mokmurian at Jorgenfist and dispersed his stone giant armies before they could do significant harm to Varisia.
