They suck blood and squish real nice.
Kill all the stirges!

In large cave stirges swarm.
They to us tried to cause harm,
We annihilated them.

kill the hobgoblins

3 ATTENDEES Anvil, Gerald, Teancum

Flamerule 15, 1486 DR

The band of raiding hobgoblins is troublesome to both Anvil and Teancum. They wonder about the elves that got raided, and what they can do to help. They know hobgoblins are evil by nature and they want to go and investigate and possible knock some monster heads.

Because it was estimated that there was about 90 hobgoblins, a veritable army, the rest of the party did not want to go and stir up any trouble with them. But Anvil and Teancum cannot rest easy until they at least go and check it out to see if they can possibly vindicate the elves and remove some of the foul creatures.

They deliberate their plan carefully trying to decide if they should lure the monsters to an ambush location, or try and stealth into their camp. They finally settle on sneaking in the back door of the castle to see what the situation is, and trying to establish a choke point to eliminate as many enemies as possible. They plan to use the griffon and additional firepower, and a teleportation scroll as a means of escape. They also ask Maurice if they can borrow a couple of Dwarven ale Molotov cocktales. Kai also very generously gives them as many goodberries as he can conjure with his remaining spells for the day. They also plan to utilize Anvil’s reboot ring trading it back and forth as needed to keep their abilities fresh. Gerald decides to join them.

They sneak up to the hobgoblin camp and discover two factions warring against one another for the right of chieftenship. They also notice a large elven crate sitting near the front steps of the castle. Seeing no easy way to engage the monsters one or two at a time they decide to sneak to the back of the castle. There they find a skirmish between the two factions right in front of the Castle Cragmaw’s back door. They decide to attack and are almost immediately incapacitated by hold person spells from some spellcaster hobgoblins. They must have seen the party coming a mile off.

Suddenly one of the faction leaders shows up and invokes a warlord challenge event. This pits the faction leaders and two guards against the small party, Anvil, Teancum, and Gerald, and whoever wins is the new chief. The PCs are brought to the ring and the battle ensues. The army gathers round and participates by chaotically shooting arrows at the participants. Finally one of the faction leaders is killed, and a green dragon arrives breathing it’s acid cloud on everyone. This kills a lot more monsters and Gerald. Anvil administers a potion to him, and he grabs the metallic object out of the crate (since he’s an elf he knows where the handle is). And the party uses the teleportation scrolls to leave.

They arrive in Phandalen a day ahead of the rest of the party.

7 ATTENDEES Anvil, Gerald, Holt, Kai, Lhupo, Maurice, Teancum

Flamerule 14, 1486 DR

Maurice’s bomb sails and lands true, exploding violently in the target room. But alas, the tripwire he triggered dropped the ceiling down on his head burying him in the rubble…except for his little gnomish hand, sticking out, which went unnoticed by Teancum who was catching up and preparing for a tussle. Anvil moves to guard the door shielding allies (with his tower shield) so they can assist Maurice. Kai the bear uses his considerable strength to remove rubble from atop Maurice. Maurice also helps (himself) pushing several pebbles out of the way. Eventually he is freed, and fortunately he’s okay…except for his eyeball. Maurice had strained so hard helping Kai with the rumble, moving those pebbles, that one of his eyeballs popped out. Thinking quickly, he doused it in Dwarven Ale and popped it back in. He does have a slight scar on the outside corner of that eye, but no other ill affects…except he’s addicted to Dwarven Ale now—but not to drink it, rather for its myriad of functional tinkering and medicinal uses.

Meanwhile a battle rages against a couple wolves, several goblins, and Lhupo the bugbear. Lhupo barks orders at his troops trying to gain a tactical advantage. Anvil has a heated exchange in the doorway with the wolves, and receives a couple of wounds from goblin arrows that get through his defense. One arrow lodges deep in his forearm, but he manages to shrug off the pain and continue to battle. Gerald fires his bow into the room, past Anvil, scoring several hits breaking up the horde of goblins starting to demoralized them. Holt casts Shatter into the room wounding and further undermining their confidence.

Teancum and Kai take flanking maneuvers entering the room by an alternative route. Teancum takes some damage in the process. The party then uses their momentum to press into the room on two fronts working together as teammates to crush these foul enemies. Kai casts a timely Thunderwave shoving the monster into the back corner, breaking their morale. And then as a final nail in the coffin, Teancum, in the fever of the battle and in an act of bravado, charges and does a hobbit sized parkour off the wall over a goblin and slays Lhupo. He then turns and finishes the goblin he hopped over. The remaining two goblins surrender and are bound for interrogation.
