The first 10 months since Grenhelm’s founding were pretty eventful. After their charter was issue the Founders built their Castle. Leadership was decided, and edicts enacted. For a few months, expansion occurred uneventfully. Over the course of the 10 months, Grenhelm grew to a city of 3,250 inhabitants, and a value of 2,000gp. it contains the Founder’s Castle (needs a name), a noble villa, luxury store, a baker and some houses.
The kingdom itself is not doing bad. Now a decently large kingdom (7 hexes), it contains 4 farms and 2 mines in its lands. The Sootscale Kobolds were recruited to join the kingdom, and offered to mine the caverns for silver in exchange of protection and food for themselves. After a quick exploration between Oleg’s and Grenhelm, the Founders found something they missed on their first visit to the land: a gold mine ripe for the taking! The hex was annexed and another mine founded in it’s location. 5,000 people inhabit the Barony of Grenhelm.
Not all was calm in the kingdom however. A few months in, a serial killer appeared in Grenhelm! The Warden tried and tried, but it took him 3 months to catch this murderer! Additionally, on the first month of the year 4713 livestock and two humans were murdered in town on consecutive days. On the third day, the Founders starting asking around town, and eventually followed the trail of the murdered to the Hopping Hare inn, where a suspicious Khelid man was seen recently. The word “werewolf” started to be thrown around. After the visit to the inn, where the Founders found the severed ear of one of the victims the day before, they decided to spring a trap. Dusk was assigned guard duty at the Hopping Hare (with an open bar tab of course!) and the Founders stalked the streets to find signs of howling or large wolves. The guards were instructed to keep an eye out for Khelid men. After nightfall the Founders found this man, Kundal, who had indeed turned into a werewolf. Entering a barbarian rage, and swiping with his greataxe, Kundal began to assault the party. Even without silver weapons, the werewolf was no match for the Founders, and he was rendered unconscious. Kundal was transported to the Founder’s castle, awaiting interrogation by Dusk, the Royal Assassin.
