Clearing of the ruins

Elves come.
We go sleep in the elf village.
Left elves after 2 days. Funeral had been held for fallen elf; we’d found giant riding owl’s remains.
His sister came with the party to ruins 1.5 days north.
Cleared 1 lizard man ambush and 1 small home/outpost.
Ruins 1 story under water.
Headed for old bell tower.
Other boat cleared bell tower of hobgoblins.
Jeff, wes, bison worked clean up.
Took out 3 lizard folk boats entangled on reed rafts.
Fly on bison, run for tower as a med size black dragon and goblin rider attack us, ~50 lizard folk come out of main structure, 5 ogres take rafts, and one ogre walks with a caster hobgoblin on his shoulder.
Another herrowblade attacks.
Kill dragon rider.
Kill herrow and dragon.
Flee quickly. Bison drags raft to shore.
Clear little lizard encampments around lake.
Loot the main building. Lead guy, ogres all gone. Find a phylactery of a druid.
Talk to elf chick(bard): a druid was killed ages ago, he allegedly became a lich known as the Ghost Lord.
Also, a few hundred years ago, the town was being overrun with an army, so the men flooded the city killing the invaders.
The men moved and resettled in the smaller towns known as Drellin’s Ferry and others along the river.
Headed back to elf village. Attacked by third Herrowblade. Bison comes close to dying.

Stalling an army

Wear down bridge supports, plant wards on bridge then return to town.
Convince Drellin’s Ferry to tactically advance rearward.
Head north up river.
Radcliffe the Excitedgrants Bison water breathing;Bison pulls the boat up river. Sometime late morning, there is a muted rumble of thunder in the distance. Much to our delight, a hour or so later, a small band of goblinoids and other baddies floated their way past us. The bridge plan was a complete success. Just after noon,Bison pulled us to the edge of marshes.

Clear a road block on the Old North Road then cross lake into said marshes.
A bladed green dragon spawn of Tiamat impales boat.
We kill. Find and take it’s treasure. Some elvish things are included.

The woodsman and the keep

Headed north.
Met sketchy woodsman.
Clear out old keep. Manticore, bugbear. Bison wouldn’t climb walls. Radcliffe the Excited and Bison attacked through the front as a single force.
Found battle plans of the Ghost Lord and links to The Ruins of Rhest.
Found north bridge.
