After taking a rest in Cragmaw Hideout, the adventurers went to Phandalin. Here they met with Ivern Bramblefoot and his guard Chen Ling. As Laucian Meliamne and Ivern Bramblefoot go way back, the two decided to tag along for the adventure. They explored the town, got a few side quests and slaughtered some Redbrand Ruffians. Hereafter, Milo “Wait for it” Thorngage was caught stealing, and saved by Ivern Bramblefoot. The next day Chen Ling shot a town inhabitant by accident, Laucian Meliamne let his wolves do tricks and Ivern Bramblefoot gave a mediocre performance. In the meantime Thorin Fireforge bought a Dwarven Greatsword, and wanted to put it to good use immediately. So the party went to explore Tresendar Manor, the Redbrand Ruffian hideout. After Ivellios of Oghma convinced a nothic to join their cause, the party turned on the nothic and killed him, taking Ivellios of Oghma with him in his grave. He got granted another chance by Oghma and reappeared a few hours later. And as usual, Laucian Meliamne got knocked unconscious twice by a bugbear, similar to what happened in Cragmaw Hideout. In the end, the party got back together and stumbled upon a goblin named Droop, who is tagging along to beat the shit out of the remaining Redbrand Ruffians. Oh, and Ivern Bramblefoot let the leader of the Redbrand Ruffians named Glasstaff escape.
