Unsettling Scenario

Recently, a new reader asked me what most of this means. As he's not familiar with the world of Dungeons & Dragons. I suppose I've been remiss in my duty to clarify the adventure as it unfolds.  Remember readers, this is the ongoing story of my foray into 4th Edition D&D. Based on the Keep on the Shadowfell module.

At this juncture my crew and I have been propositioned by Lord Paidraig to deal with a "minor kobold threat." Since we are young, plucky adventurers we jumped at any chance to gain fame and glory. But a visit to the village magi, Valthruun complicated matters. What exactly were we getting ourselves in to!
