Lord Markelhay and Lord Padraig: Well done! We owe you a debt of gratitude! Here is the 1500gp that we promised you as a reward! We did not expect you to slay a dragon!
The town wishes to hold a party in your honour at the Blue Moon Alehouse! Par Winomer is your host!
Come and enjoy the finest brews in the Nentir Vale—Brewmaster Kemara Brownbottle, a halfling of great renown, has broken open his special keg of Halfling Bitter to celebrate.
At the party you are approached by a very old man dressed in green robes. He introduces himself:
“I am Nimozaran the Green, the High Septarch of Fallcrest. I have been waiting many years for Dragon Slayers such as yourselves to come to Fallcrest. Please come to see me in the Septarch’s Tower tomorrow after you have slept off your drink. I have a proposition for you that will be mutually beneficial. For now, I bid you goodnight and allow you to return to your party.”
If you go to visit Nimozaran, he greets you and invites you to join him for a meal.
In his lab he shows you his teleportation circle. He teaches tDr. Carion the Linked Portal ritual.
“I have been searching for decades for heroes who are not afraid to tackle dragons. A plague of dragons is spreading across the natural world and all the other realms. I do not know what is behind this plague, but mages from all lands are working together to stop it.”
“I propose that I send you out by using my teleportation circle to different lands where we mages have discovered dragons. You slay the dragons and take their horde. All I ask is 10 percent of the horde and I will continue to provide you with the location of known dragons that you should be able to defeat with your combined prowess.”
“The town of El Shalal, far to the south in the desert regions is losing people and treasure to a creature that we believe is a dragon. I will send you to the Wizard Galheed. He can direct you to the cave where he believes the dragon is lairing.”
