The group leaves the singing sword and encounter a sobbing woman, Mary Stall, who asks the party to find her husband Doven last seen in Winterhaven, they have a caravan that is headed out that way to look for him and would like the guild to escort the caravan that leaves in the morning. That night Roam’s childhood friend Ardra meets up with the guild at the singing sword and explained to Roam about her vision how Lathander wanted her to find Roam and help him.
On the road to Winterhaven they spotted orcs patrolling but the orcs did not see them and they made it to Winterhaven without incident. The party found an inn in Winterhaven and learn Droven was investigating a supposed dragon’s tomb to the south. They also learned Lord Pagraig of Winterhold wants to hire someone to clear out kobolds and orcs in the area. talking to him we learn of the kobold lair and get a map to where they are believed to be.
On the road to the Kobold hideout the group spots a kobold patrol and eliminates them leaving one kobold alive to interrogate. As they interrogated the kobold they found out that a goblin named Irontooth is leading the kobolds and confirmed the location of their camp, the kobold wiggled out of its bindings and died trying to escape from a hammer attack from Conri Mcsage.
The party arrived at Irontooth’s camp and engaged in a guerrilla war vs a party of kobold in a thicket. upon victory they explore the cave but immediately get ambushed by the remaining kobold knocking boat and Conri unconscious but were saved by Ash and Roam’s healing and stabilizing powers. They fought to exhaustion in an extended fight but came out victorious with Rio lopping off Irontooth’s head. His last words were “Kalarel and Lord Orcus prepare my way.” On Irontooth was a note:
“ My spy in Winterhaven suggests we keep an eye out for visitors to the area. It probably does not matter: in just a few more days. I’ll completely open the rift. Then Winterhaven"s people will serve as food for all those Lord Orcus sends to do my bidding.”
Exhausted after a long battle the guild took a long rest in the cave after earning enough experience to hit level 2.
