A Dragon’s wrath
A week or two ago, the son of Beorning was killed, along with a group of other Beorning youths, by the winged Cold-drake Bairanax. A group of elders, including Beornan, had tried to stop them and had followed later in an attempt to save them. This only resulted in their deaths, also at the hands of the Dragon. Beornan was the only survivor, and that was by chance. In an effort to get away from Bairanax, Beornan apparently stumbled into the territory of another Drake. Bairanax, following, was set upon by the other Dragon, an Ice-drake named Lomaw. As the two Drakes fought, Beornan was able to escape.
Angered and grief-stricken at the loss of his son and many of his people, Beornan seeks vengeance. He realizes that a lone attempt would be futile. He is willing, though, to lead a party on a sortie against the Dragon.
In c. T.A. 1640 the Narrows are a dangerous land. The Angmarim supply trains traverse the Men Mithrin. They are guarded by Orcs and Easterlings, and both groups are not adverse to a bit of raiding on the side. Wolves prowl the borders of the land and Trolls roam the foothills. Worst of all, of course. are the Dragons. Aside from Bairanax himself, Scatha, Hyarleuca. and Haurnfile hunt regularly in this region.
Beornan will not be a very friendly traveling companion either. He will rarely speak, and if another Beorning (or a Dwarf) is present he will communicate through them. He will elect himself leader, and expect to be obeyed.
Should the players manage to endure all of these trials they will face Bairanax at his lair, Bar-en-Bairanax.
If Beornan and the players manage to defeat Bairanax, the riches of his hoard will be theirs. Beornan may take a few select items, but cares little for wealth. However, if able, he will claim the body of the Drake. As far as he is concerned this is not a negotiable issue.
