Some of our heroes met with Fallcrest city councilman Eoffram Troyas at the Blue Moon Alehouse. They also met each other for the first time. Wilik, Dana, Drella, and Varda listened as the councilman explained that the humanoids in the valley have been getting precocious and uppity of late. Specifically, he called out kobolds as the main culprits, though he said that goblins had been making raids as well. Eoffram claimed that the city guard are reluctant to take the fight to the humanoids, but that he was gathering adventurers to do the necessary task of hunting down the humanoids in their lairs and eliminating their threat to the town.
Troyas said the city would pay a bounty of 10 gold pieces per kobold head and 15 per goblin head. He explained that these would need to be brought to Moonstone Keep in order to receive payment. He then bought a couple of rounds of drinks for the four adventurers and tried to leave, only to be stopped by Wilik, who asked for more information about finding the kobolds’ base. Troyas mentioned an old manor in the Cloak Wood known these days as Kobold Hall. Wilik, having done some logging in the area, knew of the place and felt he could find it.
Troyas then left for the night, claiming he had other business to attend to, and our four heroes got down to the important business of drinking on the councilman’s tab. About a half hour after Troyas left, the bar was attacked by a group of goblins and hobgoblins who shouted “For the Red Hand!” as they kicked down the door, lit fires and stabbed tavern patrons.
