[D20cember] W is for Warband!

Warband!: A Get Ready, Get Set, Go! Labyrinth Lord adventure set in the Ashford Valley.

Get Ready:
A small warband of humanoids and renegade humans, cutting a swath through the small hamlets of the Ashford Valley, are on a collision course with our heroes!

Get Set:
The PCs are traveling through the Valley when they smell and see smoke over the next hill. A quick investigation reveals a burned farm and slaughtered livestock. There are no bodies of the farmers, though.

The PCs have an opportunity to track the warband and put a stop to it, possibly finding survivors from their raids.

The warband consists of a human leader, Curran, his "Local Boys" (a group of human mercenaries), a couple of Bugbears and Gnolls, and a half-dozen Orcs. Curran keeps them in loot and they've been lucky the past few farms to gather a number of slaves that some of the humanoid tribes will pay well to get. So far they've got about 6 slaves in chains that they're dragging around.
