The Story So Far
The small fishing & flax farming village of Gavin Bay has never been a hub of activity. The Bay was settled about 25 years ago by 15 or so enterprising Human and Halfling families, as well as a couple proud groups of Dwarves and Elves, on a fairly out-of-the-way peninsula in the Kingdom or Khorin. Not much truly occurs in the hamlet except for the occasional dreadfully exciting visit from a trade caravan.
However, even the folk of Gavin Bay expect more travelers than they’ve had in the past year or so. No trade caravans, no messengers, nothing. As of today, even the noble King’s tax collector has missed his annual visit by an entire week. While some rejoice in the streets at this fact, some of the more prudent villagers are quietly very worried about the total silence from the outside world.
You, some of the village’s most beloved and promising youth, are to be tasked with making a small trading trip to the nearest city, at least in part to find out if anything is wrong in the Kingdom, and the rest of the world.
