Keep on the Shadowfell

A4: Burial Site

The group finally make it to the Dragon grave site near the end of the day. The approach the site from the east and make it to the edge of the the grave site, and are able to look down into the site. They see 2 drakes standing at the bottom of the ramp leading into the site, and they also see what looks like some humans working near the site. The drakes notice the group and take off up the ramp at the group. The humans go into motion grabbing their weapons and heading for the ramp. A gnome in the pit stands near a man that is tied up. Azalea leads the charge at the drakes with Dom, Mr.T, and Akmenos close on her heels while Dave stays at the top of the pit and starts launching darts from his hands again. The group quickly gets the jump on the drakes and cut them down. The humans charge at the group, but the rangers head straight down through their ranks cutting them down. A halfling along the western ridge starts launching crossbow bolts at the group till it hears a crashing noise come up from behind it. Suddenly a minotaur carrying a large battle axe and a shield that has the symbol of Kord on it crashes through the woods slamming into the halfling and throwing it off the cliff and into the site. The minotaur then jumps down the side of the cliff, sliding down the side to control its decent. The group rush toward whats left of the humans and the gnome, while Dave continues to cast darts into the pit. In a scissor move the group herds the enemy towards the minotaur which starts cutting everybody down. Azalea heads over to the man that was tied up, the rangers walk around and secure the area, while Akmenos searches the bodies for lute. Dave charges down into the site to stand with Azalea, as the minotaur approaches. Akmenos finds money on the humans and halfling, and finds a necklace upon the Gnome. Upon searching through some of the boxes in the site, he finds a mirror which he slides into his pack without anybody seeing. Akmenos heads over to the rest of the group who is talking to both the man and the Minotaur. The Minotaur introduces himself as Asteron, a knight of Kord. He just so happens to be passing by the area and he heard the fighting, so he decided to join in the fun. Azalea unties the man who identifies himself as Dauven Staul. He tells the group that he was here doing some work at the site when this group captured him. He over heard them talking about being sent out here to collect some items for the cult. He also mentions that his necklace was taken and asks if anybody found it, explaining that it was a locket that has a picture of him and his wife that he keeps with him. Akmenos surprisingly walks through the group and hands over the locket. The minotaur tells the group that he has some other things he was attending to and needed to leave, but thanked them for the fun. The group, with Dauven in tow, make it back to Winterhaven, and a happy reunion with his wife. The group decides to rest the night at the inn, and get ready to leave in the morning to search after the kobold lair.
