"Position isn't given. It's forged."
Albor I Sollemnus

Age of Kings Saga is a major saga that takes place north of Otland in 277 PI (1276 ARC). It tells the tale of the founding of the Kingdom of Wynfall.

Stolen Land


Ser Albor Sollemnus travels to Hamerstoc

On the arrival of spring in Ôtland during the year 277 PI, the kingdom was facing rumors of a civil war. The northern region of Rostland, populated by native Doliaethi and the southern Issia, populated by the conquering Midgardians, were building tensions for the last ten years. It was at this time that Earl Irmantas Alija of the freecity of Hamerstoc send out a call for explorers to reclaim the lands north of Ôtland, known as the Stolen Lands. Word reached as far south as Morgard where House Sollemnus was seated.

The young knight Ser Albor Sollemnus heard of this call and wished to live an adventurous life. Albor knew House Sollemnus had frequent contact with the wizard Zenonas, who lived in the mountains, and sent a letter to enlist his assistance. Several days later, Zenonas's apprentice arrived at Morgard by way of river barge. The apprentice was only known as Blotch and was unused to dealing with people, as well as horses. Blotch greeted Albor and handed him the last few books the family ordered from Zenonas.

Albor also enlisted the services of Morgard's steward, Raziah who was skilled with logistics and had a keen mercantile sense. The three of them left Morgard and rode northward, stopping at various cities along the way, for several days before arriving at Hamerstoc. In the streets of Hamerstoc, the three of them saw vagabonds, bandits and rogues. People had elven slaves in linked collars, and trappers carried pelts of bears and wolves. It was truly a frontier town.

Albor took Blotch and Raziah and they visited with Earl Irmantas. The Earl informed them that they would be the fourth exploration party to be sent in the Stolen Lands. He gave them a charter of exploration and justice within the Goldwood. The area was in need of civilization and the first step to that was to clear out the bandits hiding in the forest. Albor agreed to the charter and the three of them signed it. The Earl also introduced them to Triska, a guide hired by House Alija to assist Ser Albor and his party.

Raziah walked around Hamerstoc listening to local gossip about a bandit king in the Goldwood and noting the importance of the rivers in the Stolen Lands. Raziah thought it was a good idea to hire local hirelings, but they did not have the funding, nor the time, to do so. Ser Albor was eager to leave the city and head up the road.

The four of them left the next day on horseback and headed up the road towards the northeast. While on the road, a pack of wolves was spotted northward and soon were upon the travelers. It soon became apparent that the pack was being lead by a worg. After the worg was killed, the last surviving wolf ran off. The travelers stayed for the night to take the animal's pelts.

Bandits at Oleg's Trading Post

The next day the party arrives at Oleg's Trading Post, a repurposed fort from the Bandit Wars. Oleg, owner of the post, and his wife Svetlana greet them warmly, albeit strangely so. Both Triska and Blotch noticed that they were being greeted as if they were expected. Oleg explained that he sent requests to Hamerstoc since winter for relief from bandits. Oleg was happy to see his request finally being fulfilled, while the travelers weren't sure they were the relief he was seeking. They went inside his house while Svetlana treated them to dinner and pies. Oleg told them bandits had begun asking for taxes for the Stag Lord, a self-styled bandit king. A group shows up every month seeking tribute and the trading post has less and less to give. They were lead by a hard woman named Kressle and her second, Happs. The woman only appeared the first time, leaving Happs to make the runs ever since. Oleg believed the bandits had become complacent and took his compliance fro granted. Oleg noted Albor had good timing as the bandits should arrive the next day.

In the morning, Albor and his company woke at dawn to wait for the bandits. While waiting, Albor noticed the message board in the court of the trading post with posters for bounties. Soon, four riders were seen approaching the fort from the west. Raziah used a spell to disguise himself as Oleg and stood at the gate, while the real Oleg and his wife hid inside his house, watching. Two of the four bandits approached the gate, while the other two riders kept back and began to play cards.

The leader of the band, Happs (wearing a silver stag's head pendant), dismounted and spoke with the disguised Raziah, asking where their tribute was. Raziah responded with a spell that put Happs and the other horsed bandit to a magical sleep. Raziah bespelled the other two bandits as well and all four sleeping bandits were gathered and tossed in the post's garbage pits. Oleg came out from his house, holding his beloved battle axe and congratulated Raziah and the others. However, after searching the bandits, Oleg bemoaned that he couldn't find his wife's stolen copper wedding ring on them.

The bandits awoke soon after and Blotch placed a charm enchantment on Happs, who believed his captors to be his friends. Happs told them of the river fort to the north where Kressle ranked captain over the rest of his band. He also told them of the lake castle further to the north which housed the Stag Lord. Oleg told Albor that they may keep what was on the bandits and Raziah wrote a receipt to Oleg for everything they stored at the post. Deciding they shouldn't wait for Kressle to send reinforcements, they left that afternoon for the river fort, camping in the forest at night.

The river fort

Soon, the company reached the northern river in the forest and followed it until they saw the fort. Triska, being well known in the area, disguised Raziah as a bandit sent to their band by the Stag Lord. Kressle hailed them from the parapet and was convinced enough by their story to open the gate. Upon opening, Kressle greeted them, but Raziah cast a thunderwave and knocked the bandits off their feet. Kressle, however, was not knocked down, only greatly angered. She attacked Raziah with her axes and nearly killed him, dropping him to her feet. Triska attempted to claim she had no stake in this attack, but Kressle, still seething with anger, attacked the ranger still. Albor and Blotch come to assist Triska and Albor knocked out Kressle. The fort was taken.

The two bandits and Kressle were tied together with linked rope, arms tied behind their backs. Raziah attempted to question the bandits, but Kressle commanded them to be silent. Kressle was gagged and they resumed questioning. Raziah and the others learned of the Stag Lord's army organization; under the Stag Lord were three lieutenants within the castle who then order bandit captains (of which Kressle was one) who order bands of their own. Each bandit captain was given a silver stag's head pendant to show their loyalty. Kressle preferred not to wear hers and gave it to Happs, her second. Of the lieutenants, there was akiros-daemon the drunkard with a scarred face, Auchs the strong and dumb, and Dovan the dark and skilled.

The company took the prisoners to Oleg's, with Triska feeding them goodberries along the way. When they arrived at the trading post, Oleg was not present having left the day before. They put the prisoners in the garbage pits, making sure to separate Kressle. Svetlana welcomed them warmly and made them breakfast with a smile. She spoke with the company and was very outgoing. The company discussed what would be done with the bandits; execute them or make them slaves. Raziah spoke against using the bandits for labor, seeing them as untrustworthy. Albor asked Svetlana about the poster on the wanted board about kobolds, but she admits she knows very little about the creatures other than they had been seen along the edge of the Goldwood to the west. She tells Albor that she misses the time when she could travel freely through the Goldwood and collect moon radishes for her soup. She also misses Hamerstoc, where she grew up; the streets and the children playing.

The company leave to explore the lands surrounding the trading post and when they returned, they saw a group of armored soldiers with horses. The leader of this band was Ser Kjellen Grassen, who tells them that his mercenary group will begin to patrol the road between the trading post and Hamerstoc. Albor welcomes him and they begin to discuss the fate of the company's prisoners. Three of the captured bandits are chosen as slaves, the others are sent to Hamerstoc to hang. Kjellen gives them a reward for those to meet the rope. Blotch decided to oversee the slaves and their treatment.

The company began exploring the surrounding areas. In the Kullands to the west of the Goldwood, Triska took the company to an area she knew was sometimes used as a camp site, but when they got there, they saw the open area littered with the white bones of various animals and men. They searched the area and Raziah came upon the hidden lair of a giant trapdoor spider. They slayed the spider and found remains at the bottom of its spider hole, including a sketched drawing of a dead tree on a hill with an X marked below it. The company continued to explore in the nearby forest and met the hunter Petras. Together they ate and shared stories.

Petras joined the company as they returned to the river fort to see it reclaimed by bandits. The company climbed the ivy-clad walls and overtook the three bandits within the fort's barracks. On their way back from the river fort with the prisoners, Triska found Svetlana's patch of moon radishes. Also in the grove was owlbear tracks which worried Triska. They arrived at Oleg's and turned over the bandits to Kjellen, save for one named Ramund who claimed to be a sailmaker. They put him into slavery to his relief. Svetlana was pleased to be gifted with a batch of moon radishes and promised to make them all her special moon radish soup.

Ambrose the Greenman and the golden elf

A blast of a horn was heard, sounded by one of Kjellen's sentries. A strange man approached the gates of the post, elf-like in appearance with a head of verdant hair and amber eyes. He road on a golden king elk. When he entered the post, he dismounted and whispered to the stag, "Thank you, Lord of the Forest". Albor greeted him and asked his name. The greenman told him his true name is difficult to pronounce to men, so he will be called Ambrose. He described himself as a observer sent by the Cianna, for what purpose, he did not explain. Albor told him he was welcome to join them in their travels.

The company decided to hunt Tuskgutter, the famous boar of the Goldwood. They traveled north and Triska found boar tracks. Following these tracks, the company found a small grove where a group of she-hogs were found. After hunting these boars, Tuskgutter himself arrived to challenge them. The massive boar came and knocked Ambrose out of the fight. The monstrous boar was soon put down.

After putting the boar on a litter, they headed back south and found a pool to rest next to for the night. Triska recognized the pool as the same where a band of hunters she was guiding killed and scalped a nymph. In this pool, shining in the moonlight, a slim female figure emerged. She had golden hair, pointed ears and wore nothing but the moonlight. Albor called out to her, which startled the maid. She disappeared in a poof of green flame and suddenly, she was crouching at the shore next to her equipment with her blade drawn.

They spoke gently to the golden elf and asked her business. She claimed she was a herald of Nyrissa, the nymph queen. Hearing this name, Ambrose suddenly drew frightening shadows around him, like a cat with its hair standing up. The she-elf once again disappeared in green flame, but this time did not reappear; her equipment gone as well. Albor was unhappy with Ambrose's actions and Ambrose apologized for his outburst. The greenman explained Nyrissa was the consort of the dark fey, Nix Nobleblood. Nix was banished from the Cianna for his treachery and Nyrissa was greatly diminished in her power. Ambrose didn't know why she would have a herald in the world of men, but it didn't bode well.

The company returned to the river fort hoping that it hadn't been reclaimed by bandits again and were surprised to see it occupied by Blotch and several slaves wearing collars. In the night, Ambrose sent a message to the Cianna, reporting what he had seen at the pool. The slaves skinned tuskgutter and they ate boar that night. Triska felt proud of the usually shy Blotch taking command and flirted with him, to his chagrin. Triska's flirting culminated with her flashing her chest at him, embarrassing the young wizard.
