Upon discovering he has a knack for brewing, Pillar wants to set out to find the great old brewmeister and study at the brewery on Frostbite Peak. The adventurers make their way onto the mountain unmolested, shortly up the climb though they are attacked by a pack of hunting frost goblins. After dispatching several of them and allowing a few to live, they take the leader back to his goblin cave and Parn heals him of his shattered pelvis. Oberron is clever and rude, but the party is still able to persuade the goblins into a ceasefire.
When they make it to the top of the mountain after Parn has a bout with frostbite, the friendly Raskshasa Tuck welcomes the party into his home. He reveals to Pillar that he has a set up for his magnum opus of brews, but needs some strong men to acquire some ingredients, as well as an ice elemental to provide a refrigerant. The party captures an Icicle Swarm for Tuck, but as soon as he can say thanks he bids them off to find his secret ingredient…magical hops that grow in the highest sunny patch of the mountain. This would have proved easy enough were it not for a blizzard dragon guarding the field with his freezing minions.
Of course the party was able to overcome this young dragon, and the frost hawk that attacked them was taken back bound in rope, and a great branch of the bush was broken off and returned to Tuck. Over the coming weeks the adventures had the nearest thing to a vacation at Tuck’s house as Parn made sure to study the brewery in all mechanical aspects while Pillar acted as an apprentice to Tuck through the course of his master brew. Meanwhile, Oberron was busy with some moderate psychological torture in order to make the frost hawk his new mount.
At the end of roughly four weeks the group was finally able to drink the rich, creamy cocoa stout that was Tuck’s masterpiece. With a cask of the brew for themselves they set off back towards the plains, and unknown mystery, intrigue, and battles.
