This adventure starts in the town of Heldren in Taldor, on the southern border close to Qadira. Below is the campaign hook, though each of you will be given some specific gossip you heard that will take you to the town of Heldren. Make sure your backstory includes why you are in the country of Taldor at the start of the campaign. http://www.mapsofgolarion.com/ Spoiler The sleepy village of Heldren has rarely seen so much excitement or concern. Hunters from the nearby Border Wood speak of unnaturally cold weather at the height of summer that descended on the forest just days ago. Heavy snow followed, and those who returned spoke of an uneasy presence in the woods, as well as new, dangerous predators. No one knows what this event means, but the town's soothsayer, Old Mother Theodora, claims dark times lie ahead. As if in proof of that dire prophecy, a badly wounded mercenary arrived in town yesterday, claiming to be a bodyguard of Lady Argentea Malassene. He told the village council that the noblewoman's escort came under attack by bandits and strange, wintry creatures near the edge of the Border Wood. He alone escaped, and Lady Argentea was dragged away into the forest. Now the towns folk cast fearful eyes toward the snowy forest, worried what else might emerge to threaten their peaceful village.
