Previously, on The Broken Crown

A king falls, his heir is missing, and his half-brother rides to take the throne.

As dawn broke, an alliance of monsters under an emblem of a Broken Crown attempted an attack on the city-kingdom of Askor.

Our heroes storm a stronghold deep in Tarreld Forest, discovering a handful of siege weapons, a dwarven invoice, and two differing tactical maps.

Using the tunnels beneath, they narrowly escape a group of agents from Askor, and eventually arrive back at an abandoned mine they visited some weeks ago, where they are rescued by a travelling priest.

Back in Ponterin, the party takes their “package” first to the Temple of Pelor and Melora for healing.

But when they return her to Xander, they discover she is not the Princess as they had thought.
