Book 3 – Part 3 – Glass and Wrath
The group continued to spend a lot of time at the Drunken Dragon and were becoming close friends with Anika-Shae. In fact, she and Glenlivet became lovers. Eorl Aragnar introduced the group to an elven ranger named Serindë Andagor, who reported an increase in goblin-related raids along the Linwic Road, particularly in the dale between Nettlewood and Melwood, and that members of five tribes were involved in the raid on Ullester. Eorl Aragnar asked the group to maintain a public presence in Ullester during his trip to Baeldurham.
One morning, Anika-Shae disappeared. Glenlivet found a note implicating her long-lost brother Monakild. They also learned that Stigand Kleinberg was her estranged father. They quickly headed for the Kleinberg Glaswerks to search for her. Lee picked a lock and they broke in to the factory. In the furnace room they battled 14 goblins, killing them all. They found the corpses of all 8 glass workers, who had been murdered by the goblins, plus the corpse of an elderly man encased in molten glass.
They ventured into the basement and killed 4 more goblins. They wounded a half-elf rogue, who escaped into the smuggler’s tunnels. Glenlivet, Magna and Aiden pursued the rogue but could not catch him. Aiden followed a side tunnel and killed a wrathspawn.
Lee rescued Anika-Shae from chains, and Yriadel healed her wounds and bruises. Anika-Shae explained that Monakild had invited her to join him in the service of Nauma, who planned to destroy Ullester. She had rejected his offer so he ordered his goblins to beat and chain her. While they waited for the return of Glen, Magna and Aiden, Lee searched the quarters of Monakild and found his private journal. The journal revealed the secret behind Nauma, her desire to transform into a demon, and her plans to burn Ullester to the ground.
After the group took Anika-Shae and the journal to Forwost Baelor, they returned to the smuggler’s tunnels. The followed Aiden to where he fought the Wrathspawn, then continued further. They found a chamber with a red marble statue of a strikingly beautiful but monstrously enraged human woman, her long hair held back from her face by an intricate headdress of hooks and blades. In her left hand she carried a large book inscribed with a seven-pointed star. Her right hand held a glittering metal and ivory ranseur.
In a room with a circular stone pool they battled a vargouille. In an ancient prison, with a rickety wooden platform, they battled two wrathspawn.
