Malcer, as the new sheriff of Phandalin, asked if I would be part of the party to escort two prisoners to Neverwinter. My new companions are the dragonborn called Patrin Verthisathurgiesh and the human monk Zedheir. The two of them already posses considerable skill and should make for great allies on this journey.
The first prisoner is, our wizard friend, Ilarno Albreck. He will be standing trial for his crimes against the people of Phandalin. The other is a dragonborn called Worbor. He has killed his best friend. Though, he claims it was in self defense.
What should have been a simple two day journey turned out to be quite an ordeal. While camped for the night we were raided by an orc war chief with two of his soldiers and a goblin boss with two of his minions. After we dispatched them, we found notes on the leaders calling for our prisoner Worbor and another dragonborn Tokul to be captured or killed. There were also instructions to capture me at all costs.
We captured one of the goblins, though, they are rarely of any value. We will bring him along with us to Neverwinter and they can sort out what to do with him there. Hopefully we can reach our destination without any further disruptions.
