In the morning 4 strangers along with a number of townsfolk stand in audience for Mayor Poppinstock, who delivers a speech welcoming the coming of the Carnival.
Helios, a monk notices some small moving sacks beneath him as he sits perched on the table.
He fumbles over a table, while Sidus Fatorum notices other Goblins approaching from all around. The crowd becomes panic stricken and flees the market. As the two begin to dispatch the goblins, Sjaud the mysterious rogue, descends from the rooftops to aid them. Together, these three dispatch the goblins in the marketplace. Helios even manages to capture one of them. Just as they do, Captain Shammons arrives to thank them for their help, but informs them that more Goblins are about. The heroes decide to investigate the Nobleman’s house, while Captain Shammons takes care of the Inn.
The Heroes arrive and dispatch the Goblins at the Nobleman’s house and then head to the front gate to investigate the chaos there. Upon arriving, they find that a decorative cannon and a merchant’s wagon has been stolen. They inform the Mayor of this theft, who tells the Heroes that the cannon is not merely decorative, but can be fired. The heroes interrogate the capture goblin who claims to not know anything about the plan, but rather was hired whilst the plan was in action
The group along with Captain Shammons investigate the gate again, and notice tracks leading to the Fairgrounds. The Heroes follow them.
Once at the fairgrounds, they meet with the Master of Ceremonies, who assists them in their search for the missing cannon. Sjaud finds the missing merchant’s wagon but no cannon. Upon further inspection, they notice tracks moving towards Durken fields. And away they went.
Once at Durken fields, they trio formally introduced themselves to each other, the captured goblin introduced himself as Vak. Helios noticed a gather of goblins on the hill in the distance. Deciding it was probably better to not be seen, they scurried into the underbrush. As if on que, the goblins on the hill open fired with the stolen cannon in an effort to dispatch the trespassers. Leaving Vak behind, they moved under the cover of trees towards the cannon. Sjuad discovered the missing Carnival wagon during this trek, as Helios and Sidus chased off the cannon crew, and managed to capture the Spottter. After interrogation, Sidus learned the name of the Goblin boss. “Yakka Kahn.”
Sidus, Helios, and Sjaud tracked the goblin cannon crew back to their cave. After an attempt by Sjaud to trick the goblins into opening the door, they decided to simply use the cannon to destroy it.
The group raided the goblin cave, slaying anything that opposed them, dodging poorly constructed traps and looting their treasures. Eventually, they burst in on the Goblin Boss Yakka Kahn, who eagerly awaited their arrival. He introduced himself, and his mace “The Juicer” briefly, as Helios charged the half pint boss. The two groups clashed, Helios, almost falling victim to the Juicer, as Sidus and Sjaud dispatched the henchmen. Helios delivered the final blow to Yakka Kahn in a flurry of shuriken.
“Youse all bitches…” Yakka Kahn managed to spit out before falling on top of his own mace
Upon seeing their leader perish, the remaining goblins attempted to escape, but were chased down by Sjaud and Helios, who knocked them unconscious.
