At the Starving Stirge

You have been traveling through Furyondy, perhaps hoping for action against the depredations of the hordes of Iuz, or just passing through on your way someplace else – perhaps Highfolk. You stop at the town of Crockport on the shore of Whyestil Lake, at a tavern going by the name of the Starving Stirge. Within, you quickly note a sign posted which reads:

“Able bodied Adventurers wanted. Accompany me to an abandoned wizard’s tower, and share in the spoils. Corrian.”

Aside from that, the tavern is a reasonable place, frequented by a mix of locals, some mercenary types and minor nobility slumming it (or fancying themselves as adventurers).

Much of Crockport shows signs of military activity – or at least past activity. There are fenced off areas with dilapidated sheds, showing rusty iron items through cracks in the boards. Log barricades currently pulled aside from roads into the town. A dilapidated barge lies at the dock, once used as a troop transport.
