Two months ago, a group of Irregulars undertook a diplomatic mission to the Lezhar Marshlands to resolve a conflict between two tribes of lizardfolk. That mission was commissioned by the Oltarn family, who have an alliance with the ruling Issek tribe.
The Oltarns have now commissioned the Irregulars to send a group back to the Lezhar Marshlands, to assist the Issek tribe in dealing with an external threat. Based on the limited information available at this stage, it seems that the lizard tribes are being attacked by strange creatures not usually encountered as far south as the swamps. While they have successfully repelled these beasts so far, the Oltarns are concerned that the lizardfolk are understating the danger they pose.
Irregulars participating in this mission will travel to Tinkett, where they will be briefed further on the situation by Saugren Oltarn, the family's representative there. The Oltarn family has requested that Irregulars who participated in the earlier diplomatic mission be included in this assignment if possible.
The Oltarns have provided an initial purse of 1500 gp for equipment that might be needed by the Irregulars undertaking this mission, and promised a further reward “commensurate with the success of the mission” (the amount is not specified).
Case number: 209/12/109
Summary: The Oltarns requested that the Irregulars who undertook a diplomatic mission for them previously return to the Lezhar Marshlands. Their mission was to assist the Issek tribe deal with an external threat. This threat turned out to be the marching army of the lich-lord Vedroth. The group activated the Eye of the Serpent to protect a portion of the swamps.
Fatalities: There were lots of things that were already undead, but no Irregulars died this time.
Declarations: Just some sort of shimmering cloak taken from one of the bullywugs, which they kept. (Why do missions to the mainland usually come back so empty-handed?)
Commendations: QiRa was commended for her role, particularly against the hydra.
Leadership: The group seemed confused about who their leader was. They mumbled something about “shared leadership, shared responsibility”.
