This town is located some 33 miles due north of Greymere right near the middle of the Narlmarches along the Skunk River. The river is the major transportation route used into and out of this town… no roads, but many hunting trails. (The county it occupies is directly between the Abandoned Keep and the giant statue of Erastil)
When the party entered the town they were met by most of the townspeople and the guard. The mayor and captain gave them a tour and spoke about the short history of the town and it’s current problems. A day earlier a woman was captured right outside of the village and told about a small invasion / raiding force about to attack Tazlford. The party interrogated her and found out that she escaped the raiders and that they were less than a day away.
New enemies: Hannis Drelev of Fort Drelev, Lord Irovetti who is the bandit king of Pitax ???, and a group of the Tiger Lords (barbarians) !!! It seems Pitax launched an attack on Drelev with the Tiger Lords involved, Drelev surrendered without a fight… Pitax might have their eyes set on your kingdom (Stronghold).
Kisandra Numesti (NG female human rogue 2/aristocrat 3), the youngest daughter of Lord Terrion Numesti, a knight and aristocrat of Brevoy. (They settled in Fort Drelev)
Kisandra’s older sister is being held as a ‘hostage’, along with many other daughters of Drelev’s fighters, and her father is now imprisoned. (This story is too large to include here). See New Enemies above.
The raiders included 25 human mercenaries from Pitax (?) (still under investigation), 10 human barbarians (From the Tiger Lords?) and 6 big ass Trolls. The town / guard only had 11 members with another 14 or so townspeople that could fight.. Coren Lawry (captain) told you that his people had a good chance of repelling the attack from the human raiders (maybe), but the addition of the 6 Trolls would defiantly wipe out the town completely.
The brave heroes along with the town’s guards defeated the invaders and killed all the Trolls. Talzford lost a few townspeople and half of the guard. The town’s wall was badly damaged along with a few homes. Three of the raiders have been captured alive.
The fight is mostly over, (I need to revisit an encounter) and events are being investigated…
