Hm... seems like you're using IE. Can I suggest a better browser, such as Firefox, Chrome or Opera? There are other choices too.

If you wanna stick with IE, or can't switch, I'll warn you right now, while most of this site should work with IE, stuff might come up buggy, so you might not enjoy it as much...

Pinky speaks rapidly: "Pinky is smartest of goblins! Not a brawler. Pinky know to stay out of humans spaces. Go south to find new tribe. Pinky not good bait for Cragmaw hunter."

He seems nervous and probably honest.

Quietly to the others gathered about, "Perhaps we should cut him loose. I don't think he'll cause any trouble."

Releasing Pinky and grounding the wagon on the road, the team head to Phandelver for Sildar's payment and to deliver the supplies.

The rutted track emerges from a wooded hillside, and you catch your first glimpse of Phandalin. The town consists of forty or fifty simple log buildings, some built on old fieldstone foundations. More old ruins—crumbling stone walls covered in ivy and briars—surround the newer houses and shops, showing how this must have been a much larger town in centuries past. Most of the newer buildings are set on the sides of the cart track, which widens into a muddy main street of sorts as it climbs toward a ruined manor house on a hillside at the east side of town. As you approach, you see children playing on the town green and townsfolk tending to chores or running errands at shops. Many people look up as you approach, but all return to their business as you go by.

Sildar seems much more at ease. "My friends," he says, "let us secure lodgings. I'm told the local inn is very quaint."

"Sounds good to me!" Diverting himself from his hunt for the Forge has left a bad taste in Otto's mouth. Nothing a pitcher of ale won't wash out.

Movith grunts in agreement. Now that the adrenaline is wearing off, his head is pounding and his muscles ache. A warm meal and a good sleep will do him well.

Medve simply nods in agreement as he shuffles along with the others.

"So what's the mission here exactly? Tell me about this Gundren you're all supposed to meet. I hope you don't mind my saying so but it seems like you've had a bit of a bad time of it, judging by the corpses back in those goblin caves."

During the trip back, Shane will pull out the pages from the 'Lionshield Coster' to see if there is any useful information.
Dec 16, 2015 8:47 am
The pages you found are a ledger from the Lionshield coster, being sent as business correspondance from Neverwinter. On closer inspection, you find 'Phandalin' scribbled alongside it, and on another page a list of food and metalwork supplies and their quantities and price breakdowns.

You also recall the blue lion symbol from the barrels in Klarg's cave, as the same (or a rough representation) can be found on the ledger.

You also see some filthy, incoherent figures scribbled in thick black ink.

Sildar looks pained, but he answers each question directly.

"Two months ago, a wizard named Iarno Albrek was dispatched here to bring order to this town as things were getting out of hand. But, I have received no word from him, so I have come here to find whatever became of him. Tread carefully, for this is not the quiet village it seems - it was taken by a bandit group or two and could be dangerous. If Iarno has been captured then they are a step above your common rabble.

Indeed, not all has gone as expected. It is important that I share some information about Gundren with you. I was guarding him on the road here, but we were totally unprepared for the ambush, unprecedented for a tribe of their size. It seems that a man named the Black Spider is responsible, and he had Gundren and his supplies shipped to Cragmaw Castle. An important map detailing the location to Wave Echo Cave, and in it the Forge of Spells, was also taken.

You rescued me from the goblins and I owe you a reward. What is more, I have greater rewards for you if you can help in this urgent matter, which I will discuss with you after I have conducted my initial investigation here.

For now, we should secure rooms and equipment".

Sildar leads you up the main road in with the wagon, and you reach a central hub with a small temple, a shrine made of stones. You take a right turn and find the Stonehill Inn.

Sildar suggests you leave the wagon outside and buy a room for the night before you head to Bildrath's Mercantile up the north road to deliver the wagon. He heads in to buy a room, without money.

"The Wave Echo Cave! The Forge of Spells! Why, that is MY goal! It seems our missions and our fates are linked, my friends!"
Dec 16, 2015 10:22 pm
"Perhaps they are... But the mission, for now, is to sleep." says a weary Medve.
Dec 16, 2015 11:21 pm
"Finally, an easy mission!"
Dec 17, 2015 5:23 pm
The Stonehill Inn, standing in the centre of town, is a large, newly built roadhouse of fieldstone and rough-hewn timbers. The common room is filled with locals nursing mugs of ale or cider, all of them eyeing you with curiosity.

"Sildar, your word is always fulfilled, but for today your room is on the house. Phandalin needs you here - some thugs calling themselves the Redbrands have destroyed all hope of security and peace in the town. If I had a sword to loan you, I would.

You say you have escorts? I have five rooms empty but I can't dole them all out on charity!"

The short, friendly young human male behind the counter eyes you all suspiciously, but realises that a halfling and a giant working together with a rabble of misfits probably isn't a recipe for evil.
Dec 27, 2015 7:31 pm
"No need for charity, my good man! Here are two gold pieces for my room and food and drink for myself and the rest of Sildar's friends."

OOC: I figure that's 20sp for a modest room and 5 modest meals.

"I cannot house and feed you all for 2 gold. 2 more, pray? Y'cannot expect to fit five bodies in one'o my rooms! Or thar's the stables if ye can clear the piles away!"

(This is assuming that everyone is comfortable on a modest lifestyle)
Jan 3, 2016 2:09 pm
OOC: Movith has no interest in this transaction. He'll sleep wherever he can find a place, so, he's going to let the others sort this out.

Movith grunts and wanders over to the bar and orders a strong drink.
Jan 4, 2016 12:58 am
Medve will ask "Two more gold will house us all?" as he reaches for his pouch.
Jan 7, 2016 1:05 pm
"Yes, certainly, and my patrons may help themself's to the foodstuffs left over in the morning, laid out on the long table."

Sildar then chips in:

"Seeing as you are set for a night, I shall go to take care of business and to secure your payment. I assure you, more work will come your way if you can make yourself will be well-paid and will contribute to making this locale safer. Adventure, I can certain promise you that too as I have a special task for seasoned warriors such as yourselves. Find me at the townmaster's hall just south of here: look for the bell tower. I'm going to see who is in charge here. Try not to draw attention to yourself - I sense that something is not quite right. If you can find information from the local townsfolk I would greatly appreciate that too."

Sildar makes a courteous bow and leaves. It seems you have earned his respect, and that he has something on his hands that he alone cannot handle.
