Dark Season was unusually harsh this year, with enormous snow drifts and harsh cold. On Ancestor Day, the clan’s ancestors visited Ulfketil’s Stead and appeared to approve of things. One of them offered Gisli Blacksheep a mug of ale, and another placed a wreath of flowers on Yaneg’s head.
A few days later, Bornwulf Bornhelmsson, a member of the Arnoring clan showed up at Ulfketil’s Stead. He said that he was disgusted at Armin Pot-Thrower‘s decision to convert his clan to the Lunar Way. Armin had said that he will pull down the clan’s Orlanth Stones as a way of showing that there is no way back, and Bornwulf said that was the law straw for him.
So he offered a deal. If the Orlmarth would call Orlanth out of the Arnoring clan’s Orlanth Stones, and would take him and his family into the Orlmarth clan, he would show them where one of the Arnoring clan’s treasures was, the Wind Horn, so they could take it.
Yaneg and Blakradit discussed whether this was a trap or not, but decided to trust Bornwulf tentatively. They convinced Savan Thundermaker to come along with them.
Bornwulf led them along the Roofbeam and down into a hidden clearing where the Arnoring clan’s Orlanth Stones were, an ancient burial mound where Kelan the Archer, one of the clan’s ancestors was buried. There, in the middle of the Orlanth Stones, was the Wind Horn.
When Savan started to de-consecrate the Orlanth Stones, the PCs found themselves thrown into the Heroplane and in the middle of Kelan’s Night Battle, in which he defeated three waves of trolls. They successfully defeated the trolls, completed the ritual, took the Wind Horn, and retuned to Ulfketil’s Stead, where Bornwulf’s family, about forty people had arrived.
They were able to persuade a reluctant Gordanger to support Bornwulf’s request to join the clan, but it will have to addressed at the clan moot.
