Today we started a new party of adventurers. Really a follow on to a fellow DMs campaign with a few tweeks and changes.
1. Tyspapera, the half orc Beastmaster Ranger.
2. Ashar the Human Hybrid Swordmage/Wizard.
3. Abot the Shardmind Ardent.
Today we had our characters traveling from Wraithblight to an unknown location to attempt to deal with the minons of Bel. Their path lead them through the dark, dessicated forest that mirrors the Guthandor forest on the prime material plane.
