DM IS A STEEL TRAP
Hobgoblins attack but don’t venture into the Wizard’s courtyard for reasons unknown. Krill was haunted by nightmares in his sleep and the rest of the group decided that they shouldn’t spend the night near the watchtower.
Exhausted and travelling for several days they made it back to the town of Phandalin.
The party spent the night getting to know each other better before heading to bed. The mysterious Tiefling Laoise spent the night sitting separately from the group saying she needed to think about some things. When the party went to bed she motioned for Alvo to join her, showing Alvo him something before leaving to go to bed. Alvo threw it into the fire without a word.
The next day the party met Steve’s Wife & Daughter who were searching the area looking for him. They informed the family of his demise, and the location of the gravesite, granting them some semblance of closure.
Sister Garaele gave the party three potions of healing for their help with their order. As they were leaving she asked Alvo to remain. He asked her to track down the meaning of his trinket which he was given at birth. She offered to aid Alvo if he joined the order of the Harpers. The others were asked to leave and Sister Garaele swore Alvo into the Order and afforded him the title of Watcher.
After Alvo flirted using his mage hand with the clerk in the town master’s office, he managed to wrangle a meeting with the townmaster for the group.
Harbin Wester told the party if they could find funds and / or equipment for the militia he would authorise it’s formation, with Daran Edermath as the head of the militia.
The party stocked up on supplies in Barthen’s Goods where Barthen asked for news of Gundren. Admitting they knew he was being held by King Grol but had no leads on the location of Cragmaw Castle, Elmer suggested that they travel North, to the town of Thundertree in an attempt to find Reidoth the druid who spends most of his time in the wilderness around the Sword Coast.
The Session ended with the party standing atop a hill looking down over the town of Thundertree.
