1 There is a voice coming from behind you. You turn around and see a small village. You are behind a temple and the woman speaking seems to be speaking to you. “His name is Kalarel and I believe he has established a secret cult near Winterhaven. You must go to Winterhaven and determine if there is any death cult activity in the area, if so you must put an end to Kalarel’s unholy ceremonies” “As agreed, you will be paid 250 gold pieces each for bringing back proof that the cult has been destroyed”. “Go to the Inn of four winds and eat and rest so you can leave in the morning”.SEE PAGE 4 HOOK: OMINOUS SIGNS FOR MORE INFO. Use the encounter from the forgotten realms adaptation as is. the man from winterhaven will accompany the party to his home town avoiding any combat along the way. He is also a follower of pelor as well as bahamut. His name is Gevarn He is on his way home to warn his Lady Linora at the temple of the possibility of death cult of Orcus being in the area. Gevarn has spoken to Marla about a dream he had and about some men he passed on his journey from winterhaven. ADJUST CONVERSATION WITH GEVARN ACCORDING TO THESE FACTS.

Inn of Four Winds

Gevarn will secure rooms for the group and travel supplies for the trip to winterhaven. The group can look around the village but will find no other info on the cult. If they go to the general store they will meet Douvan Staul’s wife Floren. She will tell them that her husband is an avid explorer and has not returned from the area around winterhaven. He had gone in search of a dragon’s tomb and possibly it’s buried horde. He is long over due and Floren is very worried. She promises that Douvan can reward them upon his safe return if they would be so kind as to look out for him on their trip to Winterhaven.

You are to tell no one else. The Portal that once led to the shadow fell is now filled with light, its surface takes on a silvery sheen and you step into it another step closer to home.

You all see forms shaping in the mists, Huge humanoid shapes with wings of flames. They fly around you and the mists begin to fade, beyond you see a village of huts the wind is icy cold and all around the village is glacial Ice and snow.

DAKSA Your body turns to mist and you fly through the air towards what you know is home. Large creatures with wings of flame and radiant swords fly with and around you singing songs of welcome and joy.

After getting dressed and gearing up you all head out to the central fire. All of you are closer to your true selves. The elder of the village has arranged a hero’s feast in your honor. There is music and dancing and many shows of ability. You are told to enjoy the festivities and relax for this short time, for in the morning you must leave and the journey across the lake will be a long one, but for now, enjoy the feast. As with all good things the feast ends too soon and you go to your huts to sleep for a few hours. Morning comes too quick and you rouse yourselves and head to the beach where the boats await you. There are 2 large catamaran style Kayaks 1 for the very heavy Goth, and 1 for Venom, Daksa and Supplies. Everyone else gets their own including 2 special kayaks for Rikki Tikki and for Ice Flow. Good byes are short and sweet, and you are on your way. The journey ahead of you is some 150 plus miles of icy open water. You look back one last time and wave to those on the beach, and soon they fade from view as does the beach itself, all around you now is water as far as the eye can see. Daksa assures you that you are on course and that everything will be fine.
