Timeline of Events

Ches the 22nd, 1489DR
• Morning
○ The group loads up the wagon with all the arms and armor found in the castle. Athena raises her flag over castle.
○ They look over the map to Wave Echo Cave and determine it to be in the foothills of the Sword Mountains to the east of Phandalin.
○ Talking with Gundren, he is eager to get back to the mine so he can check on his brothers, Tharden and Nundro.
○ They connect the oxen to the wagon and head out from the castle back to Phandalin.
• Late Morning
○ As they are traveling south through the forest, they hear a roar in the forest and see an owlbear rushing out of the woods.
○ Ogapo reacts first and chants ‘Vairudhyāniki viṣpar’ and the bear looks confused but continues to move towards the wagon. Noodle snickers.
○ Hyrum says a word, ‘leden žarek’ and an icy ray of blue streaks towards the owl bear striking it on its side.
○ At the exact same time Rosco hides behind the oxen’s danglies and fires his bow at the owlbear.
○ Talus shakes his head at Rosco and rushes the owlbear swinging his greataxe. He connects and opens a gash across the chest of the owlbear.
○ Athena and her posse of goblins drop out of the wagon and starts heading to owlbear. She asks Droop if he wants to fight the owlbear and Droop looks extremely concerned but says, “I am behind you, 1… percent.” Slurry ducks under the wagon and Firenz stands there hesitantly as Athena swings her sword at the owlbear and the flat of the blade raps it on the beak.
○ Droop swoops in behind Athena and swings his rusty ladle and hits the owlbear in the foot.
○ Findis chants ‘marka kaċċatur’ and a green glow surrounds the owlbear. She moves forward for a clear shot, pulls back her bow, and lets an arrow fly. The arrow lodges in the shoulder of the beast and it lets out an agonizing roar.
○ The enraged owlbear lunges forward with its beak leaving behind a bloody hole in the bicep of Talus’ left arm and attempts to claw Droop, but swipes right over top as Droop bends down to pick up something shiny on the ground.
○ Ogapo invokes his magic again and a cloud of daggers appears on the rear end of the owlbear ripping and shredding it.
○ Another lance of frost fires forth from his hand and strikes the creature in the face and the creatures slows down its charge.
○ Rosco attempts move to one of the legs of the ox, but it lashes out causing him to stumble back again drawing the eye of the owlbear. He fires his bow again and his arrow strikes the owlbear in the throat dropping it mid-roar.
○ Hyrum takes a few of the feathers from the owlbear and Talus shouts his battle cry at the forest.
• Evening
○ After a day of travel, they arrive back at Phandalin and head to the Stonehill Inn.
○ Findis and Hyrum report back to Sister Garaele their success in restoring the altar at Cragmaw Castle.
○ Sister Garaele inquires as to whether Findis has followed up on the rumors of dragons at Thundertree and Findis says she has seen no evidence so far, but will continue looking in the future.
○ Gundren heads for Barthen’s and mentions he will catch back up with the group before they head to the mine.
○ Rosco stops by the Miner’s Exchange and finds it closed, so he continues on and visits the Alderleaf farm and has dinner with his aunt.
○ Ogapo talks with Daev to determine if they can sell all of the equipment they had “salvaged” from the castle. He finds Daev plucking his lute in the Inn and he says he will talk with Linene at the Lion’s Head Coster to see if she will purchase it. He asks after his old group and Ogapo mentions everything is going well.
○ Sildar arrives at the Inn and takes dinner with Athena. He mentions that he has heard from some of his contacts that there is a contract out on the group and it specifically talks about Athena and Talus. He says the hit was ordered by someone called the Black Spider. He mentions they should watch their step.
○ Athena mentions they have cleared out Castle Cragmaw and Sildar is suitably impressed and he rewards the group with 500gp. He suggests to Athena that it would be helpful to Phandalin and the Lords’ Alliance if they would help Gundren re-establish the mine.
○ Gundren returns to the Inn and says he wants to leave as soon as possible as he talked to Elmar and learned his brothers didn’t show up at the regular re-supply time.
○ The group discusses what they should do with the castle or the manor house and decide to take over the manor instead of the castle for now. They decide to send Slurry and Firenz there to start fixing the place up.

Ches the 23rd, 1489DR
• Morning
○ During breakfast with Sildar, Findis mentions her mission to check out the rumors of a dragon at Thundertree. The group decides the mine comes first, but look in to after they get back. Sildar mentions to Athena to check back with him when she gets back from the mine.
○ After breakfast, the group heads to the manor where they leave Slurry and Firenz to look after the place and make it safe by breaking down all of the traps Iarno had put in the place.
○ Athena gives Slurry 100cp to help in their endeavor to make the manor house less dangerous. Ogapo leaves a frog with them which he says will watch them and keep track of what they are doing.
○ Finally, they hook up their ox to the cart and start the trek to Wave Echo Cave.
○ As they travel along, Gundren tells them the history of Wave Echo Cave and how he and his brothers stumbled upon its location in some journals they found in their father’s belongings after his death.
• Mid-Afternoon
○ After most of the day traveling, Gundren leads them to a cave opening. They find an old campsite outside that looks like it has not been used in about a week. Gundren mentions they may have just moved the camp inside.
○ The adventurers head in the cave opening and follow a tunnel for about one hundred feet before they reach large cavern supported by a natural pillar of rock. To the northeast, a section of the cavern floor has collapsed about twenty feet revealing a rough-hewn tunnel heading northwest and east.
○ In this cave, they find evidence of another campsite with several piles of supplies. Amid the supplies is the body of a dwarf miner. Gundren rushes over to the miner and his face hardens as he finds it to be his brother Tharden…

• Evening
○ Fleeing back in the castle, the group discusses what they should do about the hobgoblin warband.
○ As the group approaches, they see it resolve to seven hobgoblins and two wolves approaching in a loose formation. The hobgoblin’s don’t seem to notice anything amiss.
○ Ogapo suggests that Rosco disguise himself as the goblin priest. Unfortunately, Rosco doesn’t speak goblin, so that idea ended quickly.
○ The next suggestion is to have Droop or Firenz talk to them, but that quickly turns into a what will they tell them discussion which ends rather quickly.
○ Rosco suggests just letting them get really close and then fill them full of arrows.
○ Talus suggests going out the back and leaving the hobgoblins alone.
○ Rosco asks the goblins who the hobgoblins are. Firenz says, “that is Targor. Bad, bad, bad hobgoblin. Rumor is he wants to kill Grol. Grol dead already.”
○ Rosco asks if they belong here and Firenz says they are from the Cragmaw tribe.
○ Harbek asks if there are any good hobgoblin, and Firenz says without missing a beat, “a dead hobgoblin?”
○ Ogapo hides in the hall readying a dagger storm while Rosco and Hyrum take their place near the arrow slits.
○ Talus and Athena take up position on either side of the door and Harbek backs them up.
○ About this time, they remember they have a fireball scroll and instruct Hyrum to wait until they are in a good spot to unleash it.
○ Athena is hoping to put them to sleep and then add to his goblinkind army, but Hyrum doesn’t have any spells available anymore, so that idea is a no go.
○ Athena asks Firenz if there is any way to dissuade Targor from coming in so as to prevent a fight, but other than Targor wanting to be king, he doesn’t have any good ideas.
○ Ogapo starts moving debris in to the door so as to slow down the hobgoblins. At the same time, Athena continues to try to convince everyone to talk with the hobgoblins in some fashion, but Rosco just chants, “Perfect Ambush! Perfect Ambush!”
○ Athena resigns herself for a fight and gets in to position telling the goblins to hide back in the banquet hall.
○ The hobgoblins climb the stairs and Targor crosses the courtyard with the wolves as the rest start to climb up behind him.
○ The adventurers tense as Targor crosses the courtyard and enters the castle where he sees Talus and stops in surprise as the rest of the hobgoblins start to cross the courtyard.
○ Rosco peeks around the corner and throws a dagger at one of the hobgoblins and it ricochets off its shield. He lets a second dagger fly and it strikes the creature in the throat, killing him instantly and then he ducks back behind the wall near the arrow slit.
○ At the same time, Ogapo moves up towards the door and chants ‘cloud of daggers’ and a cloud of daggers appears behind Targor and engulfs one of the wolves, ripping it apart. Ogapo then disappears in to the banquet hall.
○ Hyrum intones ‘ray of frost’ and an icy blue ray streaks from his hand and hits the hobgoblin’s shield.
○ Harbek moves in to the hall and prays to his god. A spiritual bindle appears in the middle of the hobgoblins and attacks them, but it swings wide.
○ Harbek then swings his warhammer at Targor and strikes him in the side.
○ While Harbek is moving towards the leader, Athena steps forward and swings at Targor, but it bangs off his armor.
○ As Athena steps back, Talus moves forward angrily and shoves Targor with all his might. Targor stumbles backward in to the dagger swarm and the hobgoblin starts taking cut after cut as the daggers slowly slice through his armor and skin.
○ Since Ogapo is securely snug in the banquet hall, he sends his invisible quasit out in to the courtyard to view the battle.
○ Rosco unlimbers his bow and fires an arrow at another hobgoblin, hitting him in the forehead, and it falls off the ledge dead.
○ Ogapo heads back out in to the hall and a blast of energy flies from his fingers and strikes the wolf in the side, burning through its fur and pushing it back.
○ Meanwhile, an icy ray hits the wolf in the side and it yelps before falling over dead. Hyrum looks pleased with himself and ducks back behind the wall.
○ Harbek swings his hammer at Targor and crushes his chest with a mighty blow.
○ As Targor’s dead body falls to the ground, Athena moves past him and out in to the courtyard. She swings at a hobgoblin and it dodges out of the way.
○ Assessing the situation and finding it not in their favor, the rest of the hobgoblins turn tail and run as fast as they can from the castle and the demons that seem to have taken it over.
○ As they turn to flee, Athena strikes one in the side with her sword. Rosco fires another arrow after them and it sails over their heads as he moves out in to the courtyard.
○ Ogapo moves out to the edge of the courtyard and shouts, “Go hobgoblins, be free! You are beautiful.”
○ Hyrum also leaves the security of the guard room and in to the castle door and another icy blue ray hits a hobgoblin in the back. The hobgoblin lurches forward and tumbles to the ground never to rise.
○ Harbek rushes after the hobgoblins and throws an axe at one, but misses while Athena gives up the chase and heads back in to the castle where she gets her flag out of her pack and looks for some way to raises it over the castle.
○ The remaining hobgoblins continue to run while Talus winds up and throws his two axes hitting one of the hobgoblins between the shoulder blades while the other axe sails wide and he shouts, “and don’t come back!”
○ Rosco shoots another arrow a the hobgoblins and hits the same it in the shoulder as the three hobgoblins make it in to the forest.
○ The adventurers return to the castle and search through the bodies of the hobgoblins. They find three bloody sacks with severed heads inside. They look like they might be some farmers or tradesmen, but they don’t recognize any of them.
○ Athena finally finds a place for her flag and the symbol of Athena is raised over the castle.
○ Gundren suggests they leave as soon as they can to get back to Phandalin so he can find out what has happened to his brothers.
○ Feeling it is too late in the day to head back, the adventurers decide to stay in the castle for the night so they can recover from their ordeal…

• Afternoon
○ Having defeated the goblins, our heroes start to explore the mostly empty castle in search of Lhupo and the desecrated altar.
○ Harbek channels the divinity of the god of hobos and some of the wounds on Rosco knit back together. He then mumbles a prayer to the same god and a warm yellow glow flows from his hands on to Rosco and the rest of his wounds heal. Praises be to Marhammor Duin, god of hobos!!
○ Ogapo boldly strides in to the main hall and as he picks his way through rubble, he stumbles over what he thinks is a rock, but turns out to be a tripwire and the ceiling falls down on top of him. Mr. Noodle flits out of the way and only a small portion of the ceiling strikes the quasit.
○ Ogapo mentions the rest might want to watch out for the ceiling while Rosco listens for sounds of movement.
○ Looking around the room, Ogapo realizes this would have been the main entrance hall of the castle. There is rubble strewn everywhere and the main doors are broken off their hinges.
○ As Ogapo stands, he sends Mr. Noodle forward in to the open doors to scout around.
○ In the first room Mr. Noodle enters, he finds some rubble and a functioning arrow slit which would provide a good field of fire covering the entrance. Other than the debris, some black arrows are found.
○ In the next, large room, they find rotten grain and barrels of stale ale and soured wine. They also discovered a chain mail shirt, a crossbow, and a long sword with an emblem of Neverwinter worked in to the hilt.
○ As the rest of the group catches up to Mr. Noodle they recognize the armor and sword as belonging to Sildar.
○ While Rosco continues to search the room with the rotten supplies, Mr. Noodle heads in to another room where he fines several straw pallets and several weapons on the wall. The weapons on the wall are five spears, four longswords, three morning stars, two great swords, and a quarter staff engraved with feathers.
○ Checking the quarter staff for the magic, they find it to be non-magical, but it is quite light. Ogapo likes the feel and grip of the quarter staff.
○ Heading down a small hall off the room with rotten supplies, they open a door in to what can only be described as a chapel dedicated to murder. An altar sits in the middle of the room draped with a black, blood soaked cloth. On the cloth are three blood spattered golden implements, a knife, a censer, and a chalice. There is blood splattered all over the walls and the statuary has been defaced.
○ Rosco moves forward in to the room and five goblins burst from behind the altar and attack.
○ Rosco shouts and stabs the goblin right in front of him, running it through. He then scampers back down the hall to hide behind Ogapo.
○ Findis passes the cowardly halfling as she moves in to the hall and fires an arrow wildly at a goblin missing it high.
○ Mr. Noodle flies through the hall invisibly and stops in the corner allowing Ogapo to survey the entire room while Harbek charges forward into the room and swings his war hammer at the goblin’s head and swings over the top of him.
○ Meanwhile, Hyrum follows behind the dwarf and stops next to the altar, chants ‘roke plamenom’, and a cone of flame engulfs three of the goblins. The nearest goblin lights up like a torch while the other two are able to avoid most of the flame.
○ One of the goblins swings his weapon at the wizard and a blue glow emanates from Hyrum’s staff blocking the blade while at the same time an icy ray emanates from the staff of the priestly goblin and strikes the wizard in the chest. Cold engulfs the wizard who is able to shake it off. The last goblin swings his weapon at Harbek slamming it against his armor, but not causing any damage.
○ Ogapo moves in to the room and chants ‘eldritch blast’ and a blast of energy comes up short, splashing harmlessly against the altar. Ogapo continues to quickly move to the other side of the room away from the melee and through the curtains in to the chapel hall.
○ Rosco, hidden in Ogapo’s shadow, follows him in to the room, vaults on to the altar (scattering its contents to the floor), slams his short sword in to the skull of the priestly goblin, driving it home. As the priest falls to the ground dead, Rosco pulls his sword free, back flips off the altar, and skitters away behind Hyrum.
○ Findis follows Ogapo, but stops short of the curtain and shoots another arrow at the goblins. After this one sails wide again, she throws down her bow in disgust and says, “I hate being inside!!”
○ Harbek switches directions with his war hammer and hits the goblin, collapsing it’s skull into its shoulders. The crumpled body falls to the ground, brain matter spilling out.
○ Hyrum chants ‘šokantno razumevanje’ and grabs the goblin in front of him. The goblin shakes mightily and foam comes out of his mouth as he crumples to the floor dead.
○ Hyrum looks over the altar and finds carvings related to Oghma, Lathandar, Mystra, and Tymora under the caked blood and filth.
○ While moving the bodies of the goblins in to another room, Harbek searches them for any possible items of worth, finding none.
○ Rosco picks up the golden chalice, knife, and censer and puts them in to his bag. He takes the robe and staff of the goblin priest.
○ Ogapo heads back in to the room and sighs heavily as blood seeps down his side. Harbek channels the divinity of his god and some of Ogapo’s wounds knit close.
○ Hryum cleans off the altar and cleans the caked on blood and filth off of the altar and anoint it with oils. Speaking the words he had been told over and over in his dreams, Hyrum consecrates the altar back to Oghma. The altar glows with a faint white light as the last of the sacred words are spoken.
○ Rosco asks Firenz if this was the priest he mentioned and Firenz says, “yes, this Lhupo.” Rosco flippantly asks if Firenz is happy now. Firenz looks a little concerned and responds with, “Firenz, always happy. Happy with new found friends.”
○ Heading out of the altar room, Rosco starts searching the rest of the castle. In the chapel hall, he finds a golden statue in a crimson cloth. Still flush with magic from the consecration ritual, Hyrum notices that the status glows with divination magic.
○ The group heads back to the king’s room with Gundren to rest for an hour while Rosco goes through the castle with a fine tooth comb finding nothing more of value.
• Evening
○ As the group starts heading out of the castle for the trip back to Phandalin, they notice several hobgoblins approaching along the footpaths from the west.
○ The adventurers flee back in to the castle and prepare to welcome the hobgoblin war band…

• Afternoon
○ Harbek falls back as his bindle fades away.
○ Talus looks at the cowering goblin in the corner while Rosco shouts at him to move forward and engage the goblin masses coming through the crumbled tunnel. Rosco tells him he’s got his back.
○ Talus gives the cowering goblin a look, drinks a potion a healing, and then moves forward to engage the oncoming goblins.
○ One of the goblins explodes into a cloud of mist as the cloud of daggers rips it apart. Seeing their compatriot go down, the goblins avoid the cloud with some going around the cloud to attack Talus and others heading down the hall away from it and being lost to view.
○ One of the goblin swings at Talus and slices him across the thigh while another fires an arrow at Talus and hits him in the shoulder.
○ Rosco scampers under the table and bursts out, attacking the cowering goblin removing his head from his shoulders.
○ Findis mumbles, ‘marka kaċċatur’ and a green glow surrounds the goblin near Talus. She shoots an arrow from her bow and it hits the goblin in the throat, killing it.
○ Hyrum chants ‘leden žarek’ and an icy blue ray fires forth from his hand and sails wide of the other goblin near Talus as Talus swings his greataxe. He slices a portion of the goblin’s armor off.
○ The goblin returns the blow, but misses Talus.
○ The door on the other side of banquet hall near Rosco flies open and three goblins are surprised to see Rosco, but recover to attack him. One swings a sword slicing the halfling across the chest while the other two fire arrows at Rosco, striking him in shoulder and the leg.
○ Rosco stabs the one directly in front of him through his armor and straight in to his heart. Rosco then moves back under the tables and cowers behind Findis.
○ Findis jumps up on the table and looses an arrow at the goblin near Talus, but the arrow flies wide of its mark whistling past Talus’s ear as Hyrum moves up to the door, chants ‘roke plamenom’ and flame streaks in to the hall engulfing the goblins.
○ The goblins dive to the side, but still are heavily burned as Hyrum closes the door and puts his back to it. The goblins on the other side bang on the door and start to push it open.
○ Talus swings his axe again and the goblin ducks under the swing and slams his scimitar home in the belly of the barbarian. Talus falls to one knee, but through sheer strength of will he stands back up again as Hyrum loses his struggle to hold the door closed.
○ The door open again and the goblins attack. Hyrum’s staff glows blue and the arrow shot by one of the goblins is deflected to the side while the other goblin’s weapon slices in to Hyrum’s calf. The glow on the staff slowly fades away.
○ Rosco skitters under the tables to take position behind the barbarian, firing his bow and killing the goblin dumbfounded the barbarian hadn’t fallen.
○ Rosco then tumbles back under the table Findis was standing on and keeps on the lookout for more targets.
○ Findis turns and fires an arrow at the goblin in front of Hyrum spinning it around and killing it as another icy blue ray from Hyrum hits wide of its mark.
○ Talus turns, picks a hand axe out of the skull of a dead goblin and buries it in the skull of the last goblin and it tumbles over backwards.
○ Several other goblins appear in the doorway and Rosco fires an arrow at the newest goblin and it goes through its chest and out the other side.
○ Findis fires an arrow at another goblin, hitting it through the eye.
○ Hyrum moves through the door, chants ‘roke plamenom’ and flame turns the final two goblins in the main hall into small torches.
○ The castle falls quiet after the intense battle and the smell of burning goblin flesh sits heavily in the air when Firenz says, “what about Lhupo?”

• Afternoon
○ During the rest, they obsess over the closet. Ogapo goes in and closes the door. Nothing happens. They search it for secret doors and they find none. It really is just a closet.
○ They discuss how they want to approach the rest of the castle. They decide to split in to two groups, one consists of Talus, Harbek, and Ogapo, and the other is Athena, Findis, and Rosco and they head off to explore.
○ Athena’s group heads through the northern door and into a large dark room. The room seems to have been a chapel at some point and there are two large, heavy curtains at the north end. Athena detects the consecration coming through the curtains.
○ Findis notices something move up amongst the angelic statues. Mentioning this, Athena calls out for Mr. Noodle to go explore. Ogapo hears the call and sends Mr. Noodle who then heads up in to the reaches and a snakelike creature drops to the floor and attacks with its tentacles.
○ Meanwhile, Talus’ group goes through the curtain to the south and finds two more doors.
○ Examining the two doors, the one to the south looks a little different than the normal doors, so Tallus heads over and opens the door to the west. Opening the door, he notices a large room with two large tables filled with rotting food and dirty dishes.
○ In the back, there is a rather large goblin brandishing a meat cleaver shouting at several goblins, telling them to get back out there and fight. Talus throws a hand axe at the nearest goblin slicing off part of his face and knocking him to the floor where he shallowly breathes.
○ As Ogapo moves toward the grick, he hears the bellow of challenge from Talus and decides to send Mr. Noodle to have a quick look at what is going on. He then murmurs, ‘allarlu’ followed by ‘kṣudra pēluḍu’ both targeted at the grick. The blast of energy sails wide, but the purple glow of his hex settles on the beast.
○ As Athena moves forward to engage the grick, Firenz says, “oh yeah, watch out for Lhupo’s grick. Nasty beastie.” Athena asks who “Lhupo” is and Firenz responds, “Lhupo is priest.”
○ Athena swings at the grick and misses the quick beast while Rosco rushes in and shoots his bow at the grick and the arrow bounces off the grick’s armor-like hide. He continues forward, drawing his dagger, and plunges it in to the side of the grick.
○ The grick spins around and a tentacle attempts to grab Rosco. Rosco dodges out of the way.
○ Findis shoots the grick with her bow and the arrow flies wide.
○ Ogapo blasts the grick again and the energy slams in to the grick’s tentacles singeing them as the power flows through it.
○ Findis fires another arrow at the grick and the plunges through the soft underbelly of the grick, killing it.
○ At the same time, Harbek chants a prayer to his god and a warm, yellow light flows down his arm and knits the wounds on Talus’ body back together. He then chants another prayer and the spectral bindle reforms in the banquet hall right next to the large goblin. The bindle swings at Yegg, but passes over the top of him.
○ Talus throws his second hand axe at another goblin and misses as the goblin ducks. Talus follows the axe by running across the room.
○ The scared goblins move away from the bindle and into the path of the rampaging barbarian. All of them swarm around the barbarian, swing their weapons causing several small cuts on Talus, and then they move back towards the other side of the hall.
○ Athena hears the sounds of battle through the wall to the south and she and Droop head back through the door and head to the sounds of battle in the south. As they enter the banquet hall, Droop points at the large goblin and says, “Yegg.”
○ Rosco follows behind Athena and Droop and heads in to the hall firing an arrow at Yegg which sails high.
○ Harbek’s bindle swings down on Yegg and hits the fat goblin in the head and then the bindle swings back and forth trying to scare the goblins.
○ Harbek moves forward in to the hall and closes on Yegg, swinging his warhammer in a wide arc. With a sickening crunch, the warhammer connects with the side of Yegg’s face, caving it in.
○ Talus follows behind Harbek and swings his axe at a goblin taking its head from its shoulders.
○ The remaining two goblins cower near the hearth while more goblins enter the room from a partially collapsed hall to the southwest. One of the new goblins swings its weapon at Harbek and connects causing a wound on his thigh.
○ Ogapo dashes back from the chapel to the banquet hall to help with the battle.
○ Athena closes on the new goblins and swings her sword, but they are able to dodge out of the way.
○ Rosco hides behind Athena and fires an arrow at a goblin striking it in the throat while Harbek moves the bindle to the center of the new goblins and it lays about striking one of the goblins. He then closes the distance on another goblin and swings his warhammer wide of the mark.
○ Talus attacks one of the cowering goblins with his axe and splits his head open like a melon.
○ More goblins come streaming out of another room. The goblin engaged with Harbek swings his weapon wide of Harbek.
○ Ogapo moves behind Harbek and chants ‘bākulu samūha’. A nimbus of purple light forms in the midst of the goblins and solidifies into maelstrom of tiny daggers ripping in to the goblins.
○ Athena moves near the cowering goblin and the body of Yegg. Droop stands over Yegg’s body lost in thought.
○ At the same time, Harbek’s bindle continues to swing about, but the goblins dodge out of the way. Harbek gathers up his warhammer and strikes a mighty blow on a goblin caving in its chest.
○ Goblins continue to spill forth from the surrounding barracks…

• Mid-day
○ Athena tells Droop to go talk with Firenz. Firenz says, “Droop, I thought you were with Mogg?” and Droop responds with, “I was, but these guys saved me. You should join up with us.” Droop drops to a whisper, " Beware of the little guy, he wants to kill Slurry and me. If we got the three of us, we could mug him in his sleep and take all of his stuff."
○ Athena asks Droop if Firenz will join them, and Firenz responds with, “I will come with you, but protect me from Yegg.”
○ Athena asks Firenz where Yegg is and he responds in the kitchen, but can’t draw them a map. He also asks about potential dangers. Firenz mentions King Grol.
○ Meanwhile, Rosco and Ogapo had headed back to the tied up drow and Gundren. While Ogapo tends to Gundren, Rosco searches the drow and finds nothing of value other than a dagger.
○ Looking around the broken tower, Talus picks through the debris.
○ Hyrum comes in to the room and looks around and notices a wooden chest on a ledge which probably was the second floor at one time.
○ Hyrum mumbles ‘vrač roko’ and moves the chest a little bit, but not enough to pull it off.
○ Talus lifts Hyrum up and he then uses his staff to lever the chest which tumbles to the ground where it smashes. Electrum and gold pieces spill about, liquid from a broken vial seeps on to the floor, and a scroll tube tumbles out.
○ Hyrum looks the scroll tube and finds two scrolls, a scroll of silence and a scroll of revivify while Talus scoops up the coins.
○ While the group discusses what to do, Mr. Noodle notifies Ogapo of some approaching hobgoblins.
○ Talus heads out of the tower and to the previously barred door about the time the hobgoblins open the door and another fight ensues.
○ Ogapo heads out of the tower with the drow and in to the guard room with Talus. He hexes the hobgoblin in the doorway and the mumbles ‘kṣudra pēluḍu’ and a bolt of energy streaks forth and misses the hobgoblin.
○ The hobgoblins maneuver in the hallway with some of them trying to head around the hall while others come through the door. The hobgoblin in the door swings wildly at Talus while the one behind him shoots an arrow at Ogapo which also sails wide.
○ Hyrum moves up to the hobgoblins and chants ‘roke plamenom’ and flame shoots from his hands burning a path through the hobgoblins, killing two of them.
○ Talus moves through the door and swing his axe at a hobgoblin, cutting through his armor and delivering a fatal blow and continues on further in to the room.
○ Rosco sneaks down the hallway and sees more hobgoblins, fires his bow at one of the hobgoblins hitting him in the right shoulder, and then he dashes back to the tower room.
○ As Athena heads forward to battle, she asks Firenz if anyone should be spared. He nods in the negative, and so she attacks another hobgoblin and misses.
○ Ogapo attempts to hit with his blast and misses again.
○ The hobgoblins heading around the other way notice Talus and head back in to the room to engage him and Athena. One swings at Talus with his longsword and slashes him across the chest and the other swings at Athena and misses.
○ Hyrum moves forward and mumbles ‘leden žarek’ and an icy blue ray streaks forth from the glass staff in his hands and freezes the chest of a hobgoblin.
○ Talus winds up with his greataxe and attacks the hobgoblin who struck him, but swings wide.
○ Rosco hides behind Athena and then shoots the closest hobgoblin with his bow. The arrow sails wide of its mark.
○ Athena swings widely at a hobgoblin and it dodges the blow while another blast from Ogapo sails passed its mark.
○ The hobgoblins press their advantage and one strikes Talus again, opening another line of blood along his arm while another swings at Athena and the blow clangs off her armor.
○ Hyrum shoots another frost ray and hits the same hobgoblin in the chest a second time, stopping its heart.
○ Talus reverses the swing of his axe and the hobgoblin parries it to the side with his blade while Rosco moves around to get a better shot at a hobgoblin. Shooting the hobgoblin with arrow, he hits him in the throat taking out the last of the hobgoblins.
○ The battle over, everyone is feeling the effects of multiple waves of enemies and everyone except for Talus fall back to the king’s room where they bar the door.
○ Athena and Ogapo open the closet door and find it empty.
○ Athena heals Gundren and he wakes up groggily. He mentions they need to find the map as the goblins stealing the map was the last thing he remembers.
○ Rosco looks pointedly at the goblins and asks them where the map is. Gundren recognizes Slurry.
○ Rosco asks Slurry who took the map and he says he gave the stuff to the guy and they took him here, to the castle.
○ Rosco wants to murder goblins until they talk, but Athena stops him from carrying out this plan.
○ They search the room and find a leather sack under the bed filled with coins, potions, and a map.
○ Ogapo shows Gundren the map and he confirms it is the correct map.
○ They make Slurry taste a potion and he feigns dying and then doesn’t tell them what it is. Athena then tries it and determine they potions of healing. They quickly divvy up the potions.
○ Ogapo asks what it is a map to and Gundren tells them it is a map to Wave Echo Cave.
○ Rosco mentions they have delivered the supplies.
○ Athena asks if he knows anything about the castle and he mentions being awake once while the king and the drow were arguing over the price of the map. He overheard them talk about his brothers and that they may have been attacked and he wants to leave and head to the Cave.
○ After setting the stage, Rosco slaps the drow awake. After dazedly waking, she stares at the group coldly.
○ Rosco asks the drow who she is and what she is doing here. She doesn’t respond.
○ She looks at each of them in turns and says," you are all too good to do anything to harm me." Rosco back hands her across the face.
○ Athena looks to see if she wants to make a deal, and she says they have nothing she wants. At this point, the group loses patience and after Athena turns her back on the scene, Ogapo kills her. After dying, the creature changes from a drow to a faceless grey humanoid.
○ To distract herself from the murder of a helpless creature, Athena detects there is some kind of desecration in another location in the castle.
○ The group sits in their barred tower room and rests…

○ The fight continues as Talus, Harbek, and Roscoe decide to join in on the battle.
○ Athena tells Roscoe to not kill the drow as the wolf snaps at her biting her in the leg.
○ Roscoe hides behind the door and then steps out and fires an arrow at the wolf which falls short and skitters off the floor.
○ Feeling the blood flow from multiple wounds, Athena mutters a prayer to her god and a warm, yellow light flows over her body and her wounds knit shut.
○ While Athena is praying, Harbek moves behind the wolf and swings his warhammer, smashing its pelvis. With a plaintive cry cut short, the wolf is knocked to the floor.
○ Meanwhile, the owlbear claws at Talus who avoids the clumsy attack, but this enrages him and he recklessly swings his greataxe over the head of the bear. Frustrated by his miss, his rage only increases/
○ Helping Talus, Hyrum mumbles ‘leden žarek’ and an icy blue ray flows from his fingers and hits the owlbear freezing its muzzle.
○ In response, the owlbear claws Talus across the chest and pecks at him with his beak drawing blood from the enraged barbarian.
○ Talus pivots his greataxe around from his previously wide swing and brings it down on the side of the owlbear, biting deeply in to its side.
○ Hyrum casts another frosty ray at the owlbear and hits it again freezing another portion of its muzzle.
○ The wolf taken care of, Roscoe moves to the paralyzed drow and using the pommel of his short sword, smacks her on the back of the head and then hits her with his fist. Being paralyzed, Roscoe is uncertain if he is affecting her or not.
○ Athena heads through the curtain telling Droop to pay attention and get a lesson on fighting. She rushes the owlbear and swings wide.
○ The owlbear claws and pecks Talus again and more red lines appear across his chest.
○ The drow suddenly starts stuggling against the ropes binding her as Ogapo’s spell wears off. She tries to speak through the gag as Roscoe continues to pummel her.
○ Talus swings his greataxe again and slices through part of the owlbear’s beak, enraging the beast further.
○ At the same time, Hryum fires another ray at the owlbear and another frozen spot appears on its side.
○ Dodging to the side, Athena swings her sword at the owlbear and splits its head wide open. The bear falls to the ground with a final roar.
○ While shaking bits of wolf from his hammer, Harbek hears noises coming from beyond the curtain behind him. Curious, he peaks behind the curtain where he sees several goblins heading his way. He summons his holy bindle and attacks the lead goblin. Unfortunately, the spectral weapon misses.
○ Athena hears a ‘thunk’ on the other side of the door and mentions this to all the heavily breathing people in the room. Hyrum agrees that they might be overrun imminently.
○ Meanwhile, Harbek continues to attack the goblins with the bindle and then heads around through the curtains to the rest of the group and mentions the oncoming goblins.
○ From beyond the door, the group hears the goblins attack the bindle. They hear shouts of dismay as their weapons go through the spectral weapon, confusing them even more.
○ Not feeling particularly threatened by the goblins on the other side of a barred door, Talus calls Harbek a coward for not attacking the goblins. He then heads to the broken door where the owlbear came from and looks in the room where he finds the top open to the elements as the tower has fallen in on itself. He starts to look around.
○ Roscoe’s pummeling of the drow finally produces results and the drow’s eyes roll up in the back of her head and she falls over on the ground. He moves out of the room and stealthily moves down the hall.
○ Hyrum asks where the group wants to prepare for the goblins and unbars and opens the door and then mumbles ‘roke plamenom’ through the open door and a gout of flame bursts from his hands burning a path through the goblins. Two of them burn to death while two others are badly burned.
○ Athena then breathes her cone of cold on the surprised goblins. The quick fire and then ice kills the two badly burned goblins and frost bites two others. Athena then asks Droop if there are any goblins there that need saving. Droop looks them over and says save the one in the back, called Firenz, his only friend. He calls out to Firenz to have him come to the dragonborn who just iced them all.
○ Droop then says he doesn’t see Yegg, the bad one.
○ Meanwhile, Harbek heads over to heal Talus while his bindle continues to lay about itself. Unfortunately, it misses the goblins again.
○ Terrified after losing over half their number, two of the remaining three goblins run from the room through a curtain that leads to an unexplored area. Firenz, however, doesn’t run and looks extremely confused.
○ Firenz says “Droop? Is that you?”
○ The group tries to decide whether they should chase the goblins or help Gundren…

○ Findis mumbles ‘silġ tal xewk’ and knocks an arrow to her bow.
○ The bugbear king opens the curtain and stops in surprise as he sees Athena. “You’re not Targas,” he says to Athena who responds with “Mistakes were made.” The king shouts for Snarl his wolf and then swings at Athena with his morning star smacking her in the breastplate and ringing her bell.
○ Hearing the call of his master, Snarl the large wolf bounds from the room and streaks down the hall in an attempt to flank around to the other side of the room.
○ Mr. Noodle notices the female drow disappear back in to the other room.
○ Hyrum shouts ‘leden žarek’ and his icy blue ray misses the bugbear.
○ Meanwhile, Athena returns the blow back on the bugbear with a thunderous roar which echoes around the room forcing the bugbear back and knocking him to the floor.
○ After being alerted to the wolf as Mr. Noodle continues to follow it, Ogapo takes the wooden bar from the door to the south and closes the western door and bars it.
○ While Findis is moving past Athena to attack the bugbear, a roar erupts from the direction of the room Ogapo just unbarred.
○ Findis fires her knocked arrow and misses high, but her prepared spell goes off peppering the bugbear with a hail of small thorns. Findis then falls back as the bugbear gets up.
○ Meanwhile, on the west door a loud thump is heard followed by scratching at the door as the wolf reaches the closed door.
○ The bugbear warily moves back in to the range of Athena and swings again missing her to the left.
○ At the south door, a large thump is heard as if something large has hit the door. This causes Hyrum to almost jump out of his skin.
○ Hyrum briefly contemplates barring the southern door with the glass staff, but instead decides to move away from the southern door and then he casts another spell at the bugbear.
○ ‘nezgrešljiva stavke’ is uttered and several small brightly colored missiles fly from Hyrum’s hand and strike the bugbear.
○ Droop rushes past Athena and rolls through the bugbear’s legs to the other side narrowly avoiding a swing by the bugbear. At the same time, Athena smashes the bugbear again with a thunderous smite. Droop brandishes a rusty ladle as the bugbear falls to the ground
○ Slurry looks non-plused by this showing from Droop while Ogapo comments about how Slurry is being shown up by the pudgy goblin.
○ Ogapo heads to the room where the woman was last seen and opens the door. Inside he finds the drow woman with a knife at the throat of an unconscious dwarf. A dwarf that looks remarkably like Gundren.
○ “Come no further if you value his life,” she says menacingly.
○ Ogapo mutters his hex as he looks around and then says, “We don’t want any trouble.”
○ Looking around, the drow responds with “Safe passage or this dwarf dies!”
○ Ogapo responds with, “I can’t speak for the wolf, but I won’t kill you.”
○ Mr. Noodle leaves the side of the wolf and comes back around to be available in case Ogapo needs to cast through him.
○ Findis moves to the end of the room and knocks an arrow waiting for one of the two doors to be knocked down.
○ The door to south bursts open and a large brown creature comes through the door. Recognizing it as an owlbear, Findis fires an arrow at it. The arrow glances off the bears’ side.
○ Meanwhile, Snarl loses interest in trying to break down the door and heads back the way he came. Growling as he sees Droop and Ogapo.
○ Hyrum shifts to one side and intones an incantation, ‘roke plamenom’ and a burst of flame leaps from his hands and engulfs the owlbear. The bear leaps to the side to avoid most of the flame.
○ Slurry hides in the arrow slit while Athena hustles over to confront the wolf. A wild swing misses the wolf.
○ Ogapo’s voice takes on an otherworldly tone as he says ‘vyakti kaligi’ and the drow freezes in place. He then rushes forward, taking a bite from the wolf, before reaching the drow and pushing Gundren out of her grasp. He disarms the drow and ties her up with a rope.
○ Findis fires another arrow wide of the owlbear. The owlbear charges Findis and attacks with his claws and beak. Findis is able to dodge both attacks while knocking another arrow.
○ The wolf snarls at Athena and tries to bite her, but can’t seem to break through her armor.
○ Hyrum unloads another gout of flame at the owlbear which again the owlbear moves deftly to the side avoiding most of the damage.
○ Athena reverses her blade and slashes the wolf on its flank. Blood flows liberally down the wolf’s side.
○ The tide of the fight has swung in the favor of our heroes, but Athena’s thunderous blows may have alerted the entire castle…

○ The heroes head in to the room and Ogapo looks through the rotted crates and barrels.

○ Talus opens the door and surprises three hobgoblin guards who start grabbing for their weapons.
○ Athena hears a faint shout beyond the curtain to south. Athena moves to the curtain and looks through seeing the hobgoblins who are staring to the west. Athena tells the goblins to stay back for the time being.
○ Ogapo moves within sight of the hobgoblins and then hexes the nearest one and his eldritch blast sails wide of the mark.

○ Ogapo moves to the side and blasts the lone hobgoblin with the power of Pastameatballoth blasting a small hole in his neck.
○ Hyrum again listens at the King’s door and hears the gruff voice say, “I’m not just giving it up, you’re going to have to pay for it.”
○ At the same time, Talus swings his greataxe down and severs the head of the sleeping hobgoblin from its body.
○ Athena searches the bodies and finds they have chain mail and shields along with longswords and longbows.
○ Looking around the room, they notice a barred door to the south and some sleeping pallets on the east wall.
○ Talus looks out the arrow slit which looks out in to the forest.
○ Athena tells the other three about the room behind them being the king’s room. They head over to listen at the door. “Wait, did you hear that,” says the female voice.
○ The group immediately moves behind the curtain to the south. Ogapo sends Mr. Noodle in to the hall.
○ After a short time, a huge, greying bugbear with heavy armor opens the door and looks around in the hall. He shouts, “Targas, was that you guys?”
○ Ogapo convinces Droop to tell them something.
○ Droop says in goblin, “Um… it’s ok,” in a high pitched voice. “I’m just. Uh.. Um.. I’m just helping Targas he seems to uh.. have fallen over in his armor.”

Timeline of Events

Ches the 16th, 1489DR
• Morning
○ Gathering up their equipment and stocking the wagon for a trip to Conyberry and on to the banshee, the group is approached by an elven woman. She introduces herself as Findus and an associate of Sister Garalae whom Hyrum had met earlier. She mentions she has been asked by the sister to help the group with their mission to seek the banshee.
○ The group then heads out of Phandalin along the Triboar Trail towards Conyberry.
• Evening
○ After a day of travel during which Findus becomes more familiar with the mercenary company, they stop for the night.

Ches the 17th, 1489DR
• Morning
○ After an uneventful night, the company heads on down the trail.
• Midday
○ Reaching the ruined village of Conyberry, the group explores the area to ensure that it might be a suitable place to stay the night before seeing the banshee in the morning.
○ Rosco starts checking the Inn to verify it won’t immediately fall down. He does discover some support beams that he feels could be destroyed quickly to take the building down.
○ Ogapo sends Mr. Noodle to scout around the village to see what he can find.
○ Findus looks over the buildings to see if the fire was natural or some other cause determining the fire was natural, but whether it had been set deliberately or not. She also notices some rusting weapons near a decayed corpse.
○ Athena looks for desecration and defiled areas.
○ Rosco scavenges the rusted battle axe and while examining it determines it looks very similar to the axe carried by Talus.
○ Talus looks over the axe and determines that it might have come from his clan.
○ Looking over the skeleton, Talus determines the bones are a bit larger than normal and have proportions similar to that of an orc, but not exactly. He also notices a leather cord around the skeletons neck with his tribe’s totem. Strangely, the totem is well preserved.
○ Rosco immediately snatches it up, and Talus asks for the totem back from Rosco.
○ Hyrum determines the totem is magical (strong alteration), but there is no other magic in the area.
○ Talus continues to investigate the body and looks over the leather cord with runes etched in it. The body itself and the ruins themselves seem to be quite old.
○ He then tries to get the totem back from Rosco, but he has no luck as Rosco feels like it was rightfully looted.
• Evening
○ They spend an undisturbed night under the eaves of the Inn.

Ches the 18th, 1489DR
• Morning
○ Rosco is unable to determine the magic of the totem and so gives it back to Talus.
○ Having resolved the party conflict, they head off on a trail shown to them by Findus and known to lead to the demesne of the banshee, Agatha.
○ While they follow the trail, they discuss the plan of attack for the banshee. They also bring Findus up to speed on what the group has been doing recently and why they are talking to the banshee.
○ Reaching the twisted tree and bramble hut of the banshee, the goblins stop dead in their tracks and say they will go no further. Hyrum, Findus, Ogapo, and Rosco head in to the hovel while Talus and Athena stay near the exit.
○ As Hyrum and co. reach the main room, the air temperature drops precipitously and a gale force wind blows through the room before a pale, translucent elf appears before them a scowl twisting her features. “Why do you disturb my peace?”
○ Hyrum say “Agatha I have heard stories of your beauty and only wish to seek you out.” This plus the silver comb seems to mollify the banshee. “Your gift is acceptable and I will answer one question you have.”
○ Hyrum asks about the location of Bowgentle’s spellbook and Agatha says, “She traded the book to the necromancer Tseranok from Iraebor more than 100 years ago and does not know what happened after that.”
○ As the group ponders if they can get another question, Agatha says," Begone from my demesne" and she disappears in a flash of light. The air temperature increases and the gale force winds subside.
○ Athena looks around the hovel a bit more while the rest of the group continue to discuss how they can get another question.
○ Athena wants to consecrate the house, but no one is willing the help her.
• Evening
○ After traveling the whole day, the group settles in for the night.

Ches the 19th, 1489DR

○ Rosco talks to his contact at the Miner’s Exchange to see if any of the items he requested had arrived. He did not get good news.
○ Ogapo has a small chat with the Great Daev who seems a little down as the locals don’t seem to be taking to his folk song.

• Morning
○ Consulting with Droop, the group takes their wagon and head west on the Triboar Trail on their way to Cragmaw Castle.

○ After a day of travel, the group finds a place to stop for the night.

Ches the 21st, 1489DR
• Morning
○ Heading north east in to the Neverwinter Wood, the way is slow going.
• Mid-day
○ Finally, the reach Cragmaw Castle a ruined edifice with seven crumbling towers. They notice an entrance on the western side and a trail of some sort leading to the southern side.
○ Looking around, they notice boot tracks of various sizes heading to the entrance on the western side.
○ Ogapo sends Mr. Noodle to scout around the castle. He discovers the path on the south side leads to a passage that leads to an iron gate in the wall. On the north side, he notices a mostly collapsed tower with a five foot canvas over part of the rubble.
○ Ogapo sends Mr. Noodle back to the north side and has him move the canvas which shows a dark tunnel leading in to the tunnel.
