Dean (Jared), Matt (Spinter Paw), Mariel (Ragash), Chris (Creeper), Jeff (Ford), Coby (Kyros), and James (Kraygen) are returning cast members.

We left the party resting in the orc cavern. Near dawn a pack of wolves threatened from the cave entrance, but the party ran them off with loud noises and fire.

From there, they returned to Old Owl Well, where the necromancer Kost was busy excavating with his crew of zombies. He welcomed them back, paying a pittance of 10gp each for their services in defeating the orcs. Kyros somehow restrained himself from killing him immediately, despite his god’s opposition to undead.

Phandalin was next on the agenda, but their journey was interrupted by a flock of stirges. The bloodsucking beasts with dispatched without incident beyond disturbing and obscene jokes. No further incidents interrupted their travel.

Sister Graele was very pleased that they had learned information about Bowgentle’s spellbook, and offered her thanks as a reward (along with 3 healing potions).

Daran Eldernath, cider king, sold some cider to the group and thanked them for their services in scouting Old Owl Well. He was disturbed by the presence of a necromancer there, but did not have the financial resources to pay for them to be removed.

The townmaster seemed less than thrilled with the Redbrand’s defeat, fearing that orcs and goblins would overwhelm the town in their absence. However, he was very excited by the possibilities of a commercial enterprise with Kost the necromancer, suggesting a haunted house with real zombies, and perhaps using them as guards to escort caravans.

The party decided to travel to Thundertree next, in search of the druid Reidoth who knows the area well and might have more information about the Wave Echo cave.
