The party having being hired by Gundren Rockseer encountered some goblin bandits on the Tribor trail. The party first decided to contenue into the town of Phandalin to deliver the goods they were hired to and then return to rid the cave of their leader, Klarg of the Cragmaw Tribe. During the exploration of the cave the party found Gundren’s escort, Sildar. Sildar informed the party that Gundren and the map to Wave Echo Cave have been taken to Cragmaw Castle. Sildar does not know where the castle is, but suggests that someone in town may be able to help. His plea to rid the trail of the goblin looters was also ignored by the party. The party has now just arrived in Phandalin.
