The first adventure took our adventurers into the ruins beneath the tenements of Ermouth. Although the party consists of somewhat seasoned adventurers, the mission given to the by Baron Obin was the first time they worked together as a team. The mission was to retrieve a steel box called the Ark of Ys’larrah and bring it back to Baron Obin. There, they met with the lone surviving member of a delving team sent by the Excavator’s Guild, Ellen Margrave. They recovered several magic items, including the Ark and a strange steel slate, both of which seemed to be ancient Koburan artifacts. They delivered the Ark to Baron Obin, and the slate to Redd Rockfist, a dwarf affiliated with the Excavator’s Guild.
