Entering Cragmaw we encounter some goblins and a grick. The grick was definitely more of a hassle then the goblins. Moving deeper in we find some of the gear that belonged to Sildar. Continuing on so far all we have encounted are goblins and bugbears. One room we enter has an owlbear chained up inside of it.
Toward the back of the keep we enter a room that has a bugbear, wolf, and a female drow in it. Seems we interrupted an argument between them. They is also a bloodied up dwarf laying on the floor in the room. When the drow is killed it transforms into a faceless humanoid creature. Healing the dwarf I move in to engage to bugbear.
Gundren informs us that the “drow” showed up very recently. He’s map should be somewhere in the castle, he won’t leave without. Zhethog looks under the mattress of the bed and finds a leather sack which has the map inside.
Returning to town with Gundren to rest and we tell him what has been going on in the town. He asks us to go to the cave, seems the Black Spider has found the location of the cave also. Gundren wants us to go to the cave to stop the Black Spider and with the hope to find his brothers.
After resting for the day we head to the cave. As soon as we enter we find the body of Tharden. Heading down into a pit to continue on we make our though the catacombs and encounter some kind of ooze. Though a door we see a bunch of dwarf bones with three grey figures gnawing on the bones. Moving though some more of the passages we come into a big room with more ghouls in it.
To be continued….
