So the story begins! This is pretty much how it started. I was expecting them to choose the side of the rebels, but Joeb being Lawful Good chose the side of the very guards who are corrupt. This changed the tide of the story. Luckily, as a good DM, I quickly came up with a counter story to fit the situation. Considering this was the very first thing I planned, it threw the whole story in a new direction. I was surprisingly able to quickly come up with a new interesting story, and I love the direction it took, so all is good. As all good DMs should, I let the players create more of their quest than I did.
As a side note, release dates will be moved to Saturday night or Sunday morning.
