Watchers at the Gate
Later That Night
After the battle with the gelatinous goo, the party discovered a rolled up parchment. The parchment contained some notes of little interest to Nix, that was until she saw the sigil of a creature she long hoped was dead. It was later that night Nix believed she should tell her friends of her past and why they should be afraid for their lives.
Thirty five years ago a small party of adventurers was exploring the lands north of Cormyr. They were called to investigate a suspected entrance to the underdark. They were expecting to just seal it off and contain it, but they discovered it was not that simple. There was a small town close to this opening, when the party arrived they found all of the inhabitants were either dead or missing. The group then examined the mangled bodies, to find there were puncture wounds on the heads of certain individuals. After looking into the town registry, the party discovered the murder victims were actually wizards.
One of the adventurers was Dovin Seagate a war wizard of Cormyr. He insisted that the party should try to find out what happened. Reluctantly they agreed but under the condition that if the situation was to dire they would leave and find help elsewhere. As Dovin looked upon his map he knew that the creature that would do this was something far deadlier than anyone in the party would imagine.
