Tyranny of Dragons

Hoard of the Dragon Queen, Adventure 4

Assaulting the Caves

Party Members: Cillian DuFrane, Elsbeth Lascelles, Fae’owyn, Jurra Loganth, Leoven, and Mara Nemetsk

Part 1: Preparing for the Assault
The party took a couple of days to rest and get to know each other and why they are doing what they are doing before heading to the base camp to fight Frulam Mondath and Langdedrosa Cyanwrath.

Cillian revealed that his parents, one a member of the Harpers and the other a member of the Zhenterim, were killed by the Cult of the Dragon. He and his sister escaped and were taken in by a thieves guild. His sister also fell to the Cult of the Dragon when she went after them alone.

Elsbeth revealed that she is the granddaughter of a known dragon slayer who went missing a few months ago. Recently she was attacked by members of the Cult of the Dragon who informed her that the Cult never forgets and always avenges.

Fae-owyn revealed that she was looking for an ever greater story, and taking out the rising cult would make for a great one. She also informed everyone that she was searching for a friend of her’s who went missing, a girl named Talis.

Jurra revealed that he was a follower of Bahamut and was hunting the evil dragon cult in the name of his god. He also told everyone that he was once a Gold Dragon banished to a mortal life by his god for his arrogance, but no one really believed, or got, the joke.

Leoven revealed a good bit about his troubled past, obviously something he needed to talk about, but in the end he is a follower of Ontharr Frume and the Order of the Gauntlet. and he was asked to investigate possible cult activity near Greenrest.

Mara revealed that a close friend and mentor of hers, Margret Green, was killed by the Cult, strangled with her own holy symbol. The only evidence left was a black scale that Elsbeth confirmed came from a black half dragon. She found out later that Margret was working with Frume and Leosin Erlanthar against the Cult of the Dragon.

When the party was ready to leave, they found Turin Aleen and another 11 members of the city armed and ready to aid in the attack on the cult. The intention being that they would help deal with outside guards and once the party entered the cave, they would make sure no one came in behind them and no one escaped out.

Part 2: Meeting on the Road
Chance would have it that the party and their companions would run into a group of cult members heading towards Amn, some of the last to leave the camp. The battle proved dangerous but no one was seriously injured. At the end, the only cult member left was a recent convert who was questioned and released with a warning message to deliver to Rezmir. The party then rested about an hour away from the camp, did a bit of scouting, and Fae’owyn had her food stolen.

Part 3: The Caves
With Turin and his men moving to fight the guards, the party was able to move unopposed to the cave where they quickly dispatched a guard drake and a few dragonclaws. Moving in, they successfully made their way through a room of bats, survived a rather devious poison fishhook curtain trap, and killed a few kobolds and young guard drakes before making their way into a shrine where they met with Langdedrosa Cyanwrath and his four berserker guards.

The battle with Cyanwrath was intense and the blue half dragon took the party off their game early, giving him the advantage that he used to show just how powerful his blue dragon blood could be in the form of a devastating breath of lightning. He then focused his attacks on his opponent from Greenrest, Jurra. The battle looked bleak for quite some time with Mara, Fae’owyn, and Jurra all falling during the combat. In the end though, the party came out on top and put Cyanwrath down. His fate is sealed, death will come for the half dragon within minutes, but first a question must be answered. As he asked a few different people throughout the mission, Cillian wants Cyanwrath to give the party a name.
