After defeating the bandits and recovering Miraj’s research, the party rested a few days at the local inn. While having a drink at the tavern, however, their tranquil evening was disturbed by an attack from a band of goblins! The party managed to defeat the goblins and put out the fires they were starting, but it was apparent that the attacks spread through the entire city. The goblins claimed to be from the “Band of the Red Hand”, a small army that attacked Brindol and other cities some ten years ago.
Worse, however, was that in the confusion, several of the townspeople were captured and brought back to the goblin’s hideout. Councilmember Troyas, a half-elf and a new member to the Brindol city council, tasked the party with their rescue after their impressive display of skill in the tavern fight. Thankfully, the guards managed to capture a goblin from the raid, and the party was able to learn the whereabouts of the goblin army’s hideout from him, preparing to set out the next day.
