The party journeyed for three days to Castellan keep, meeting with Thakinfar, the Captain of the Watch. He requests help hunting goblins and scouting the wilderness areas outside the Keep, offering a 5gp reward for each pair of goblin ears. Mialee met with Blukinfar, the priest at the temple of Lathander, The Morninglord, who gifted five potions of healing to the party upon their departure. Magdalena had a gruff encounter at the bank, where the clerk snubbed the amount of gold she wished to deposit. That evening, Thakinfar brought in a survivor of a caravan attack, who described how goblins raided their caravans, killing the guards and leading the merchants away. He ran and was not pursued.
The party set out the next day, the 5th of Mirtul, following the road east to where the caravan attack happened. They followed the trail north into the forest, camping a short distance later. Following the trail north later that day, they encountered a burial mound, fighting past four skeletons to meet a create in a large chamber. Enraged and half-restrained, the creature demanded the party bring him Norkuling, a worshipper of Bhaal, the Lord of Murder. He blamed Norkuling for the murder of him and his colleagues, and claims that Norkuling can be found to the east.
Heading east, the party crossed the road, camping on a hill on the other side. In the morning they followed a trail to the top of the hill, finding an ancient, disused druid circle. They went back to the road and headed north, quickly finding a concealed trail that led them to a valley, with a cave entrance on the left. Magdalena engaged the goblin inhabitants inside, alerting them to their presence. They gathered near the entrance, spears ready, but Mialee quickly put most to sleep. More came, and all were slain but one, who retreated. Another party came, which Sheena quickly set on fire with a flask of oil. The rest fled. From behind came a patrol of six hobgoblins. The party retreated out of the cave, hobgoblins following. Four were slain in the ensuing fight, and the two remainder retreated back into the cave.
