First Month, 10th hour of the Waxing of Narbondell
The scions of house X'Larraz 'et 'soj are summoned by Matron Mother Q'Eveldra, who wishes for her favorites to undertake a quest—a hunting party to capture one of the more exotic, and deadly creatures of the Underdark—a nest of Umber Hulks.
The adventurers reacquaint themselves with each other, and meet briefly with the House Wizard who warns them of a possible attack from a rival house.
After a celebratory dinner to welcome the return of the Matron Mother, the adventurers prepare for their mission, obtaining valuable resources from their house; a brief foray into the famed bazaar of Menzoberranzan. The following day all is set for their hunting expedition to the Dark Dominion where a scout, hired by the Matron Mother, leads the scions to their quarry.
In addition to the adventurers, the hunting party is composed of:
- 1 house wizard
- 3 house soldiers
- 3 fighting slaves
- 5 riding lizards
- Vuulthar, a Drow Mercenary Scout
The journey takes about a tenday to complete; the adventurers return with 6 Umber Hulks, one a hulkling, and the scions are lauded for a successful mission.
