Siege of Bordrin's Watch
Scales of War Adventure Path: Part 2
by Robert J. Schwalb

The Scales of War Adventure Path continues! The troubles in Elsir Vale were not just confined to Rivenroar. Word is spreading that the dwarves of Overlook are summoning all brave souls from the Vale to join in the defense of Bordrin’s Watch. This ancient fortress guards the only known pass through the mountains that border the Vale to the west, and rumors of a vast horde of orcs, trolls, and worse have begun to sound as if they have merit. When the PCs arrive in Overlook, however, events seem even more dire than expected, and they must move quickly to protect Overlook and the lands beyond from an evil beneath the mountains.

How can we forget the suffering of our kin during the Age of Chains? How can we set aside those ancient grudges when the risk of slavery is now greater than ever? Fellow warriors, the orcs are upon us, marching once more to the beat of the giants’ drum. It falls to us to stop them—to hold fast no matter their numbers. If we falter, we give in to fear. It’s not just ourselves and our way of life that will suffer—all people of the Elsir Vale will perish as well. War is upon us. Now is the time for men and women of courage to stand up and defend those who cannot defend themselves.
