After we came to Phandalin and delivered the goods of the Rockseeker brothers, we discovered that not only Gundren was kidnapped, but also his brothers went missing. Okara is fixed on looking for them, but to go alone would be just suicidal! I’ve talked with Daeris and Crugeon, we will help her, but we will try to take as much profit as we can from the situation.
That mindless dwarf! Okara expects us to join her for free; she doesn’t understand she’s shorthanded! Fortunately Sildard, Gundren’s bodygard, is a much more sensitive person and offered us a hefty ransom if we manage to find the Cragmaw Castle and save Gundren from the Spider Queen.
While we were investigating about the possible whereabouts of Gundren, many leads (and profitable errands) will take us to the territories of orcs. Many peoples of the town have had problems with these despicable creatures lead by Brughor Axebiter, and they said to have been raid both by orcs and goblins. If we manage to capture some alive, we could get some useful information about the Cragmaw Castle’s location.
While roaming the town, we found the Blue Lion merchant group; they were happy to hear that we found some of their lost supplies. They were a bit less happy to handle the money we asked for that information. Also the kind Sister Garaele gave us a delivery quest; it’s a sweet profit for a dumb mission.
A final lead came to us; a clever lady from the BlueLion merchant group told us that the Redbrands (a group of filthy thugs) may have a goblin prisoner in the Tresendar Manor. I normally don’t meddle with the local troublemakers, it’s the mayor’s duty to keep them at bay! In the other hand, it might be interesting to pay them visit, if the goblin is alive we could interrogate him.
We are setting out to the Manor after lunch.
