The party set off to fulfill their contract as Gundren Rockseeker and Sildar Hallwinter rode ahead. After a days journey they came across two dead horses blocking the road. As they approached to investigate they were ambushed by 4 goblins. The party managed to capture and interrogate one who lead them to their hideout. Our heroes launched a full assault on the hideout and found Sildar barely alive. He told them he overheard talk about Gundren being taken to Cragmaw Castle and requested the party help him reach Phandalin.
The party made quick work of the remaining goblins and made their way toward Phandalin with Sildar in tow. Upon arrival they delivered their supplies to the merchant that was expecting them and informed him of Gundren’s kidnapping. While the adventurers were in Phandalin they were ambushed by Ruffians whom they killed swiftly. They tracked the Ruffians to their hideout, and killed them there too.
