Fate led several heroes to the Daggerford bazaar, an open-air market near the west end of a walled town, each following their own goals. While browsing the merchants’ wares, they congregated around an alchemist’s tent, an elven man hawking a magical dagger carved from a horn(Only 500 gold!). Stocking up on healing potions instead, they passed on any overpriced weaponry.
They were interrupted by a massive explosion. Dust filled the bazaar, citizens ran screaming and were cut down as dozens of goblins attacked. Where were the guards, why were goblins attacking a walled town – none of that mattered now. The goblins seemed to be on a mission, and one of them grabbed that very dagger they just saw for sale. Despite taking heavy losses the goblins were victorious, fleeing with their treasure and leaving the heroes to help the wounded and bury the dead.
