Need some advice with Goblin's Lair storyline.

Post by odinist » Sun May 06, 2012 10:09 pm

Nutshell: Players just finished Escape from Zanzer's Dungeon yesterday, will be doing Stonefast next session, and then Assault on Raven's Ruin.

After Raven's, the story will flow into the Goblin's Lair trilogy. Only problem is I'm missing Red Hand Trail. From what I gather from reading Trouble Below and Palace of Dread, Red Hand Trail would be a story that has the gobbos attack Kleine, then the party goes after them, discovers/learns about a tribe of gobbos, The Red Hand, and then from there the other two adventures flow.

My question is, when I'm creating my version of RHT, is there anything important I need to make sure an incorporate so as to have complete continuity between my version and the second two adventures? Any advice would be extremely helpful. =)

Wow, I guess I promised to help you with this ages ago :o

Anyway, I finally managed to dig out the phyiscal copy of the Goblins Lair Boxed set that I had stored away. :)

Red Hand Trail is not really that interesting of an adventure if you are looking for setting lore or complex storylines. The adventure takes place in the Burning Hills, not far east from Raven's Lair. The party is hired by the Mayor of Kleine who wants them to help the farmer Bedam to fight off a tribe of goblins lead by a young and ambitious leader. The goblins are based in an old silver Mine. The party are given a map of the mines made by someone named Elise Mooch.

The PCs might also be able to find a treasure map to a small region of Hearth-Home (The Dwarf-realm) makde by Rogni, for Lord Durgan.

I mentioned most of those in the previous post.

NPCS:
Bedam: A farmer living in the Burning Hills
The goblin chieftain: sadly, he does not have a name.
The Mayor of Kleine
Elise Mooch: a map maker.
Ragni: a Dwarven(?) map maker. Other sources* suggest he is the current Lord of the Dwarves.
Lord Durgan: Other sources* tell us that he is a former lord of the Dwarves, now deceased.

Hi Havard, OMG I forgot to ask you about the "DM Handout Pages" what that was all about as they are in the red hand trail booklet, what are these handouts for and how can a dungeon master work around them without the handouts? Thank you very much for info so far, sorry to be so relentless, my requests will end! lol
Take care
