Picks up back in Tresendar Manor. With the prisoners in tow (a mother and her two children, Nars and Nilsa), the group, with Droop, decides to press on through the mansion.
*Gruuk sets off a trap in an unexplored corridor, which takes out the floor.
*When Glassstaff quips about it, Arkadius – who had previously warned him to keep quiet – stabs him.
*Glassstaff escapes his bonds and flees, calling out llefarn to re-animate the one remaining skeleton.
*Arkadius chases Glassstaff down whilst Jenevieve and Vane take out the skeleton, but not before it manages to cut off Nars’ arm.
*Glassstaff escapes and the group leave Tresendar Manor back the way they came.
*Gruuk carries Nars to the Shrine of Healing, where Sister Garaele manages to save the boys life – she is unable to reattach the arm. Vane returns the arm to the Shrine of Luck, so they can dispose of it respectfully.
*Nars and his family recover in Stone Hill Inn.
*The Group go to Sildar at the Townmaster’s Hall to recount what happened. He immediately wants to leave to see if they can catch up to Glassstaff/Iarno, so they do, leaving Droop the goblin behind with the townmaster.
*They find a secret room with a cistern, and evidence that Glasstaff had hidden supplies for escape in it – the room is otherwise empty.
*Jenevieve finds tracks that head east, but they disappear and they group cannot track anyone further.
*Returning to Phandelin, the group go to Stone Hill Inn. Droop reveals that he knows the location of Cragmaw Castle.
*Through his descriptions, Vane is able to narrow down on a map that Droop is talking about an area in the south of the Neverwinter Woods.
*After a long rest, the group head to the Sleeping Giant to find more Redbrands. They dispatch the ones that are there, and have an altercation with the dwarf bartender (Gristas), which is ultimately resolved once they pay for damages.
*They pay a visit to Alderleaf Farm, to thank the child Carp for the information of the secret tunnel.
*They visit Barthen’s Provisions and talk a little more about Nundro and Tharden Rockseeker, Gundren’s brothers, who are camping nearby. Arkadius meanwhile visits the Shrine of Luck and joins up with them after.
*Leaving Droop behind at Stone Hill Inn, they head out to Neverwinter Woods, first encountering a group of Stirges, which Arkadius takes out almost in its entirety with Thunder Wave, and then an ogre, which is also dispatched without too much trouble.
