The village of Thundertree had been left in ruins. It was not, however, empty. In our search for Reidoth, we crossed paths with ash zombies and strange little stick creatures called twig blights. These battles proved to be simple enough for our party and we quickly found the druid.
Reidoth was holed up in one of the few well kept buildings in the village. We asked him if he could help us find Grunden and he agreed. He just had one favor to ask first. Help him rid the village of the giant spiders and the green dragon, Venomfang, who have taken residence there.
After some rather primitive “negotiation”, the dragon agrees to leave. When we encounter his band of followers they are easy to persuade to follow him. The spiders put up a good fight but in the end we eradicate them as well.
Happy that the menaces of the village have been taken care of, Reidoth tells us that Klarg and his band of goblins have Grunden in their hideout, Cragmaw Castle. He agrees to help us rescue him. We set out first thing in the morning.
