One June evening, hunter Arni Gunnarson comes into the main tavern in Riversend, carrying the head of wizard Gero, who had been responsible for the slaughter of some of Riversend’s best eleven years ago. Snori Bloodaxe taxes this as a sign of Thangrim’s favour, and begins to plot revenge for the damage his people suffered in the last war.
The plan is to start raiding villages, to accumulate information and destabilize Konrad’s power base. It begins with a raid on Ingemar Island, with one boat crewed by 64 men.
The raid goes well at first, capturing both major villages with a large number of prisoners and decent plunder, and only four deaths, and sweeping out to clean up the countryside. Fifteen men are left to guard the boat and the prisoners from the larger village, but when one of the sweeper parties returns, the men are found slaughtered, with their throats slit and their gear stripped, surrounded by dead peasants. Two men remained on the island for the rest of the day to scout, but found nothing of note.
At the end of the session, the party was in their boat off the island, attempting to garner information on the battle via Speak with Dead, and having no success so far.
Loot gained: 229 GP of stuff, 22 prisoners(1 old man, 2 old women, 5 adult women, 8 boys, 6 girls)
