Lost Mine of Phandelver
The party got the name and location of the castle from numerous sources and decided that freeing their dwarven friend was top priority. The assault on the castle almost cost the lives of all of the party members as they were ambushed in the woods outside by a very tough hobgoblin/bugbear/wolf band. Only through generous healing did the party survive the ambush…and with a valuable prisoner.
Once able to scout out the castle, the party came up with an ingenious plan to smoke out and invisibly sneak in their ranger to free Rockseeker and heal him up. Their new prisoner, promised leadership of the game, was to keep the others busy as the party took out the Castle’s leadership. The rest of the party ambushed the leaders and took over the castle, freeing Rockseeker, but losing their mighty goblin friend Droop in the process.
The castle is still left unexplored at this time. The group put a prisoner in charge of who was left. After letting an Owl Bear go into the woods near the castle, other matters called our adventurers. But the party has decided to eventually go back to clear out the local menace.
