DCCZ: Defenders of the Red Keep

Doom of the Savage Kings, Part I (Year 1, Month 5)
To the Town of Hirot

Commander Hawk asks our heroes to investigate rumors concerning the cursed town Hirot. After an uneventful trip north across country, Destruction and his allies interrupted an attempted sacrifice of a young maiden. After the mob left, the heroes freed the woman and defeated an evil, part bear, part dragon creature. After the beast was slain, it turned into a foul, black mist and flew away.
The maiden Morgan led her rescuers to Hirot and her father Bull, the owner of The Sign of the Wolf Spear. Bull greeted them as heroes, though the town seemed less convinced. Another mob assembled outside the Inn under the leadership of the angry priest, Father Beacom. Bull and Brother John won the crowd over and dispersed them.
But it seems clear that the Hound of Hirot will return and will be looking for blood.
