Scales of War
Led by Edgar Sommerfield, a warlod of some fame, the Farstriders are far and above the most successful adventuring party in these lands, hence their being tasked with securing the Vents. They’ve slain a black dragon, ousted a nest of kobolds, and even undertaken an expedition into the Shadowfell. Aside from Sommerfield, the group includes twin elf rangers, a half-elf warlock named Jen, and a human fighter.
Though the remains were difficult to identify, it is very likely that all 5 of the Farstriders were slain in the process of securing the Vents, the task Sommerfield specifically requested from the Council of Elders in Overlook. His hunger for glory ultimately led to their demise.
