The Tyranny of Dragons
Master of Disaster
Leosin Erlanthar is an elfin monk who has dedicated his life to the study of dragons and uprooting evil where he can find it.
Throughout his travels he has gained a small number of disciples, including Nesim Waladra who have for some reason or another, chosen to follow him in his path of martial arts and justice.
His latest target is the Cult of the Dragon, which he has reason to believe is plotting something big beyond their typical extortion and raids.
Unfortunately, somewhere between Berdusk and Greenest he disappeared, likely kidnapped by the very cult he was spying on.
His disciple Nesim was able to make his way to the town of Greenest and enlist the help of the party to find and rescue Leosin.
The party found Leosin in the cultist camp tied up to a cross, beaten, and at the edge of consciousness. However, he initially refused the party’s attempts to rescue him, stating that he had yet to learn all that he could about the cultists and their motives and that he could fend for himself.
Eventually he caved in when he admitted that in his condition he probably would not be able to survive the execution that he was going to be subjected to the next morning.
The party was able to bring Leosin all the way to Greenest Keep, where he promptly collapsed after the adrenaline wore off. He was promptly tended to by Eadyan Falconmoon and other healers around the keep.
Leosin was so badly injured from the ordeal that he was expected to remain unconscious for many days while he healed. It came as a surprise to everyone when, the next morning, he awoke for a few minutes, just long enough to answer a few of the party’s questions.
Clair questioned him about the whereabouts of her friend, Talis. Leosin told her that had not heard mention of anyone by that name while he was at the camp, and that if her friend was of any importance to the cult, it would be unlikely that she would be held at one of their raider camps..
Javier asked Leosin if he remembered him from the time Leosin saved him and took the time to teach Javier the ways of martial arts. Leosin remembered, and stated that to this day he still does not understand why anyone would be selling tacos in the middle of a trail renowned for frequent muggings and murders. Javier also asked Leosin if he had any further advice for improving his martial arts skills. Leosin responded with, “Punch ’em in the dick”.
Upon the party’s return to Greenest, Leosin had long since made a full recovery, and was eager to have the party return to the Horseshoe Plateau to finish what he had started, going as far as to offer a sizable payment to the party on completion of the task.
