The adventure thus far:
After waking at the Stonehill Inn the adventurers gather and the town master runs into the Inn and says there was a raid by ruffians and the wood carver was killed and his family was taken. He expects the party to right this wrong.
The adventurers gather themselves and head back to Tresendor Manor. Entering back into the basement by the ruined kitchen the party is greeted with silence and a stench of rotting flesh. The party decides to exit by the north door in the main room. A pit trap is narrowly overcome and Balmura did not fall to his death. Entering a room with large copper plated doors the party sees 3 sarcophagi and a skeleton propped up next to each one.
The party enters, pokes a skeleton which falls over and nothing happens. Each sarcophagus is opened and a ring is found ( each ring is worth 50 zachs ). Then Woody approaches one of the other doors and the skeletons spring to life. Woody quickly dispatches two of them and and the other gets one swing in before it too is smashed into bone bits.
The next room is entered and has 2 ruffians that try to surprise Woody. Doesn’t happen and between Woody and Grave the 2 ruffians are dispatched. The room had iron bar cells with … the wood carvers family. They are released and escorted back to town.
The party returns to stillness and continues checking the rooms out. Arms and filthy red cloaks provisions (10 days worth of food for 10 people) ale and beaver pelts. The party tries to cross one of the bridges and it collapses once it bears weight. The bottom of the crevasse is only 20 feet down but there is a chest that is visible under the bridge remnants. It is opened the the sword Talon is found along with some coins.
The party makes it back to the bugbear room where the 2 dead bugbears are rotting. They are searched but the bugbear Mosk is not among them. The party then enters the next room where 4 ruffians are playing cards and are drunk.
The fight is on and being drunk and surprised, the ruffians quickly die at the hands of the adventurers. The next room finds a alchemy lab that has been set up to create potions but nothing seems to have been finished. There is a rat scurrying about but seems timid until Woody offers it food. After searching and not finding much, the next door is opening. This is a bed room but it looks like the occupant left in a hurry.
Thinking it might be GlassStaff the party races after him and catches him just before he left the store room. A fight erupts and though Glass staff tries to make a stand with Mosk the bugbear, both fall to the blades and spells of the party.
Mosk is dragged back to town and awakens and is interrogated. He is intimidated by the half orc and divulges he knows the location of CragMaw castle and Wave Echo cave. The party then decides to finish up the Cragmaw cave and find 6 goblins left that are again surprised and are quickly cut down. Each party member does get 50 more experience.
