The Lost Mine of Phandelver
Iarno "Glasstaff" Albrek
Tasked by the Order with establishing a constabulary in the burgeoning town of Phandalin, Iarno instead took advantage of the defenseless town by organizing local miscreants and thugs to form the Redbrands.
Iarno was discovered by the Phandalin Force Five while the adventurers dealt with the Redbrands under the ruins of Tresendar Manor. The wizard had assumed the name “Glasstaff” in his role as leader of the mercenary band.
