Merchants of Breakveil

The Key of Conwold

An Early Job for Young Adventurers

At home and hired for special trip,
they board in Bogsburrow with cargo great
and sail down to Mongerly bay
upon a stout and well stocked ship,

With blues well earned from that soiree
they armed an geared with traveling kit
but with the winter so soon to hit
their next round of travel was delayed

Approached by mayor, stout and harsh,
They are given a job for bountiful pay
to fetch a lost heirloom, taken away
by bandits in the northern marsh

On open road with summer done
The busy fields the farmers tend
They met again with gypsy friends
who give their guidance to the cursed one

“You must find the one called the ‘opener of ways’,
and bring him back to me. Only he can undo the binding
within which you are trapped.”

They crossed the river into the mire
and spotted a sword of silver shine.
Nervously they grasp its handle fine,
but it came alive like angry fire.

Floating, dancing in the air,
it struck out for Harbingers life
and fighting sword, shield and knife
they trapped the sword and stayed its scare

At the cave where bandits hide
they took the sword with wild flight
and threw it in for the guards to fight
as they waited just outside.

After a bit of battle sound,
two came out with sword in tow
but the ambush fell, a mighty blow
and took the first to the ground.

The second bargained for truce and peace
in exchange he would let them know
what lay within and hid below
if he and his love they would release

The second fight was not a route
from the shadows an archer shot
while two more valiantly fought,
so the hero’s were pushed back and out.
