Venomfang Vengance: Wes the Shield has put out a bounty of 2500 gp on the dragon Venomfang that attacked the Thunderdome in Neverwinter.
Update: Venomfang has attacked phandalin and kidnapped and of mirna’s children Nilsa, Iarno Albrek disguised as Nars, and Daren Addermath. A team of 6 from phandalin has been chosen to get them back.
Update: the rescue team successfully rescued the kidnapped individuals thanks to assistance from Reidoth but venomfang has escaped once again.
The party met a could giant names Zephyros who told them he had a vision that small folk would help restore the Ordning which was Shattered and sent the cloud giant society into chaos. He stated the Giants see it as a way to move up in their normally rigid caste structured society but he only saw it bringing ruin and destruction on both of their societies and asked the party for help in returning peace to the land.
Morak’s Quest: Tri boar
Morak’s friend and neighbor, Darthag Ulgar, was eaten by giant rats. Darthag ran the Lionshield Coster trading post in Nightstone, and his ex-wife runs a similar trading post in Triboar. Morak asks the characters to travel to Tri boar and deliver the sad news of Darthag’s passing to Alaestra Ulgar.
Morak’s Quest: Bryn Shander
Morak’s friend and neighbor, Semile Southwell, was killed in the giant attack. Although she had no family in Nightstone, Semile spoke often about her brother, Markham. Morak knows that Markham is the sheriff of Bryn Shander and asks the characters to travel to Icewind Dale and deliver the sad news of Semile’s passing.
The party attempts to speak with dead with Lifferlas who urges the characters to seek out its creator, a moon elf druid named Aerglas. The awakened tree tells them that Aerglas was not only a member of the Emerald Enclave but also an adventurer who slew many giants in his day. Aerglas left Goldenfields thirty years ago on a pilgrimage to Shadowtop Cathedral.
Miros suggests that the characters travel to Amphail and “give his regards” to Arleosa Starhenge, the proprietor of a local tavern called the Stag-Horned Flagon.
Every bone in her body tells Naxene that the attack on Goldenfields is just the beginning. She’s heard “rumblings” that other settlements have been impacted by the sudden appearance of giants-and not just hill giants but also stone, frost, fire, and cloud giants. Naxene is convinced that now is not the time for half-measures. She has read books about the ancient conflict between dragons and giants, and she urges the characters to seek out a powerful good dragon, convince it to contact other good dragons, and use them to combat the giants. Naxene is confident that the Lords’ Alliance will support this plan, given the gravity of the situation.
Update: the party got a lead on a green dragon in the kryptgarden forest
Oren is spooked by rumors that giants are rampaging throughout the North. He asks the characters if they could check on his sister, Lily, who works at the Happy Cow tavern in Daggerford. He also wants them to deliver a hastily written letter to Lily that tells her he’s doing fine, and would she please send him some more money.
The Mage Chazlauth suggests that the characters travel to the Kryptgarden Forest and seek out Old Gnawbone, a powerful and eccentric green dragon rumored to possess a collection of crystal balls that she uses to scry on everyone and everything. Based on what Chazlauth knows about green dragons, and Old Gnawbone in particular, he doesn’t think the dragon will harm the characters if they seem intent on ending the giant threat. Upon questioning whether or not he thinks Old Gnawbone would listen to them or work with them he informed the party he’s willing to risk their lives to test this theory.
Rescue the Lost Children of Burland
Yue’s friend Thalia gave us the message that Rowen’s sister Esvele Whiteshield – sent word to Rowan that she wants to open up a trade deal with the King of Burland and the rest of the Zenithian Isles but needs her help as they want something in return to find their lost children.
The Party discovered Thought Bottles in the green hag coven’s cave which contain the memories of several people that they wish to return.

Auctorius the Calculating
Auctorius met the party in hell as an impromptu rescue mission but he wanted something out of the deal he wanted to see the Zhentarim expand its territory and influence and is currently holding Zuriel as collateral until they are satisfied that the Zhentarim properly own either Goldenfields, Phandalin, or Bryn Shander.
Every Rose has its Thornton
The party met with sister Gaerelle’s childhood friend and now high ranking Zhentarim member Halia Thornton. They learned she doesn’t agree with Auctorius’s heavy handed warmongering ways of running the Zhentarim and wants to pull a coup putting herself in charge. She has a multi part plan to weaken Auctorious’s position.
1) Reclaim the Weevil and take credit for bringing him back to the Zhentarim (complete)
2) Secure Phandalin staffing it with her people showing she was able to expand influence but really putting them there for show (in progress)
3) Secure trade with Goldenfields to show she can expand influence without loss of Zhentarim force especially where Auctorius previously failed. (pending)
4) Show she is just as strong a military leader by having the party plan a raid on Nightstone and have her forces show up and chase them away. (pending)
5) Call for a vote of no confidence in his leadership and hope enough of his benefactors have lost confidence in him that they vote her into power.
Xing tracked down and found who he believes is his mother thanks to tips from the Harpers but upon talking with her she has lost her memory and can’t recall anything from her past but has been traveling around with Thalia and her crew hoping something jogs her memory. upon investigation Xing discovered there has been a string of amnesia cases with the epicenter being east of the grandfather tree. He has rejoined the party in hopes of discovering the truth.
Update: the party discovered a thought bottle containing Shin Lan’s memories

Ironslag and the Vonindod
Rowan has scryed the location the fire giants fled to after their attack on triboar. A great forge called Ironslag where they have taken the unearth piece of the vonindod. The party assumes they want to rebuild it.
URGALA MELTIMER’S QUEST
In the aftermath of the battle, Urgala relates to the characters that one of her former adventuring companions, a wealthy knight named Harthos Zymorven, had a giant slayer greatsword. The last time Urgala spoke with him, Harthos was living in Zymorven Hall, his ancestral keep on the Rauvin Road northwest of Silverymoon. Urgala thinks Harthos might be willing to part with the weapon if the characters mention her name to him and explain their reason for needing it.
After his close call during the giants’ attack, Othovir expresses his gratitude to the characters by sharing a secret with them: he knows the location of a stash of magic items that the Margaster family, his kin, keeps locked away for emergencies. If the characters ask him how he came by this information, Othovir tells them that he has a history with the Margaster family, which he despises for reasons he’d rather not discuss. The family owns a three-story tower in Silverymoon that has a detached carriage house on the property, and it is here that the characters must travel. He provides the following details:
• The carriage house is a 30-foot-square stone building with two floors. The windowless ground floor that holds the carriage has a big wooden sliding door in the front. The upper floor is an apartment with a floor made of wooden planks and a barred window set into each wall. An open wooden staircase in one corner of the building connects the floors.
• Two human guards with spears are stationed in the upstairs apartment.
• An arcane lock spell protects the sliding wooden door.
• The carriage has two draft horses harnessed to it, ready to leave at a moment’s notice. The carriage is protected by an alarm spell, set to go off when a carriage door is opened.
• The magic items are hidden in a compartment under the passenger seat inside the carriage.
GHELRYN FOEHAMMER’S QUEST
As a reward for their efforts, Ghelryn writes the characters a letter of recommendation and suggests they present it to King Morinn or Queen Tithmel should they find themselves in Citadel Felbarr.
