The Dragon's Tail
Ketcha is frightened of the presence of the scarred scale legion. The goblinoid army is building a force nearby in response to growing bandit attacks (which Sin attributes to a thief he knows locally but does not trust). However, goblin patrols from the fort in construction get closer with each passing day, and have become a constant source of skirmishes for the Grimescale lizardfolk. In order to lure the attentions of the legion elsewhere. The party is sent through the tunnels to the northern end of the hills which hide Ketcha. They must then cross the plains between the hills and Lake Nicar to take a hidden barbarian longboat out of Sulma, and to the north. During their trek, the party must get the legion’s attention and convince them that the PC group is the trouble they have been seeking. Ironically, since the PCs did attack Nicar, they are at least partly the aims of the imperial investigation.
