The 5th Day of Ches, The Claw of Sunsets
Dale Reckoning 1489
Gundren Rockseeker met everyone at The Frothy Mug tavern in Neverwinter. He asked that you deliver a wagonload of supplies to the town of Phandalin.
Gundren would not say exactly what he was doing with the supplies, only that it was “something big.”
Gundren was leaving to ride ahead of you with an older human named Sildar Hallwinter. He was to meet you at Barthen’s Provisions in Phandalin and pay you your agreed upon 60gp for the group. After a night’s rest, you all left the next morning for Phandalin.
The journey was without incident until about a half-day after turning off the High Road onto the small trail leading to Phandalin. A pair of dead horses, peppered with arrows block the path.
