Fireday 22 Rova, 4707

Four heroes have arrived in Sandpoint as the Swallowtail Festival begins. The square before the newly rebuilt cathedral becomes crowded as locals and travelers arrive. Merchants and their stalls line the roads of the city selling food, local crafts, and trinkets alike. The festival officially begins during a ceremony with speeches from Mayor Kendra Deverin, Sheriff Belor Hemlock, Theatre Owner Cyrdak Drokkus, and Priest Abstalar Zantus.

After the ceremony Pyresmoke and Yasuhdo approached Sheriff Hemlock and learned that the goblin tribes of the region have become more restless than normal. He is willing to pay gold if a group can help cull their numbers. Little does Hemlock know that the goblin menace is much closer than he could have imagined.

After the fun and games of the festival the sun began to set. At dusk the final ceremony was set to begin. Zantus began the consecrate ritual for the cathedral but was interrupted by terrified screams. Goblins began to pour out of the woodwork, burning anything nearby and attacking townsfolk. The heroes who were gathered near the cathedral helped push back the goblins, saving many townsfolk and a nobleman named Aldern Foxglove who has promised the party a proper reward at the Rusty Dragon. After the goblins were defeated crowds of townsfolk gathered around the heroes cheering for them.
