S1E2: Assault on Cragmaw Hideout
Wherein the heroes rescue an ally!

No sooner had our heroes questioned the Goblin Stikk then a new person entered from the treeline, a Wood Elf Druid named Rolen. After a tense standoff including busted noses and Torinn knocking Rolen out and tying him to a tree (why must this happen?!?) the party decided to press onward towards their destiny at the Cragmaw hideout, leaving Stikk alone and unattended…

The Goblins made it tricky by placing traps along the way, but thanks to Dargale’s awareness the group made it through without incident. Arriving at the cave by mid-day, the party managed to ambush two more Goblins serving as gate guards, followed by a trio of wolves who actually managed to put Quint inches from death were it not for Rolen’s healing magic.

Feeling a bit adventurous, Quint next decided to climb a latrine fissure and discovered Klarg, his pet wolf Ripper, and the nearly dead body of Sildar Hallwinter. The party split up to form a “hammer and anvil” style attack, and they launched into the bugbear (and the two Goblin allies he summoned) with relish. Things got a bit dicey, but Klarg was soon defeated and Sildar healed enough to travel.

Regaining his equipment and bearing, Sildar told the party there was much they needed to know, and Gundren needed saving, but that would all have to wait until they escaped this hideout and arrived at the safety of Bramwell’s walls…

S1E1: The Road to Bramwell
Wherein the heroes thwart an ambush!

And so it came to pass that our heroes, Dargale the Human Demon Hunter, Irquiquintlan “Quint” the Dwarven Barbarian, and Torinn the Dragonborn Paladin were hired by Gundren Rockseeker to deliver a cart of supplies for him from Westmarch City to Bramwell, promising some coin now and the promise of much more profitable business later. However Gundren had to leave immediately with his bodyguard, Sildar Hallwinter, and so the Adventurers began their journey together the next morning.

The trip was mostly uneventful, allowing the group a chance to get to know one another and share a bit of their past. About 20 miles down the road, when our Adverturers discovered Sildar and Gundren’s horses dead on the road, peppered with black arrows, their saddlebags looted, and no sign of Sildar or Gundren. Just as the party was about to investigate, Dargale noticed several Goblins lying in wait. It was an Ambush!

Wasting no time, the group sprang to action, killing three and knocking one unconscious. Tying him to a tree and waking him up, the Goblin revealed his name to be Stikk, a Cragmaw Goblin tasked by his warchief Klarg to ambush the Dwarf and anyone who might show interest in the Dwarf’s activities. Klarg was apparently taking orders from an Elf known only as the Black Spider, but Stikk didn’t know more than that. It guessed that maybe Klarg would know more, and he gave up the location of the Cragmaw Hideout, a cave about 5 miles down a hidden trail…
