The wagon rattles and creaks as it rolls along the old trade road. Traevus, the dwarf merchant beside you, guides a team of mules with a steady hand, more interested in the road ahead than in your attempts at conversation, but that’s part of dwarven nature. Though the sun is low in the sky, you should reach the town of Fallcrest before nightfall.
To your left, the Moon Hills stretch off southward and reach up toward the darkening sky. The fall air grows cooler with night’s approach.M
So begins the adventures of Sir Houglan and Deth Elf. They completed the D&D essentials together even though it is designed to be used as a solo adventure. Let’s face it, I am new to DM’ing, one player is new to D&D and the other is probably even more rusty than I am.
The player’s progressed through the manual with me narrating and they getting familiar with game mechanics and their character sheets.
This adventure introduced the previously mentioned Traevus as and a mysterious Cloaked Rider. They added two quests as they return to town seeking reinforcements.
Q1: Recover and return Traevus’ locked wooden box.
Q2: Find out more about the Cloaked Rider and his connection to the Goblins that attacked the wagon.
