Game Session 12
Well the village wasn’t able to get more than one horse for each of you. They wore the horses into the ground defending the village from the undead. They gave you the best they could find and that was good enough to take off at a fast rate to the ruined watch tower that the Bloodreavers used as a local base. In this journey you were joined by Sir Corwin Madglass. He was a member of the village as a child and left with a mentor to be trained as a Knight. He has passed in an out of the village in his training so you all know him.
You wore your horses into the ground and made it to the tower in record time. Once at the tower you entered stealthily in but found that chickens had been cooped on the bottom floor and they acted as an alarm. On the second floor you found a warm welcoming from the Bloodreavers and a couple giant spiders. After defeating the Bloodreavers you found that the villagers here did not have any of the missing siblings. The other villagers did tell you that another group of Bloodreavers traded horses and took off towards Thunderspire Mountain (which is beyond the city of Fallcrest). You leave the villagers a tired horse, some chickens and weapons. In the morning the group departs with your previous mounts and the tired horses the Bloodreavers had left behind.
You ride your horses hard to Fallcrest and several of the Bloodreavers mounts die. They make a nice meal to have while traveling. Upon entering Fallcrest you find the Bloodreavers have already arrived and left after trading horses. You purchase some horses of your own and head out early in the morning. The party makes excellent time to Thunderspire Mountain and can see the dust trail of horses as they near it.
