We open walking into the town of Green Stone. A beautiful town sheltered in the Moss Mountains; called so for the thick (1′ thick) moss that coats the mountains. This moss is kept alive by the large system of cave hot springs which keeps these mountains nicely warm.

The town sits between the mountains a large lake for which the town is named. The lake itself is crystal clear with beautiful green tinged stones on the bottom.

This town is both along the major trade route from Hailing cove and Maidbow, and is a major vacation destination for both the rich and the poor. A large variety of inns with varying degrees of fancy.

    • During their time waiting an elvin woman and a halfling went to the springs and did not return.
    • Once the inn closed, a human man headed out to the springs while the barkeep and a bar-maid cleaned the area.
    • Clad and Crew distracted the guard while the rest of the party entered the inn-keeps quarters to scale down from the window.
