“There be dragons here…” Yeah, right. Well, sometimes that IS indeed accurate.
First, a dinner in the company of Elmo turned into a request to go investigate the moathouse. Probably nothing, but… best to see and be sure.
On the way to the moathouse, our intrepid heroes encountered a druid, Aleera, who (after shooting a warning shot across the monk’s schnozz) acted as guide, and gave some background: while nothing overt, there is a decided lack of normal animal life in the vicinity of the moathouse. Curious… closer in, they encounter Del, who’s an old trapper in the area, who told them he saw a dragon in there. Sheeyeah, right.
Right turned out to be right, as the heroes engaged the wyrm in battle. Luckily, the wyrm was new, and overconfident, and they were able to defeat the foe. Several weaknesses were identified, foremost a lack of expendable resources (healing potions, scrolls, and the like).
