Kron Thunderheart started Thunderheart Incorporated Adventuring Company out of Waterdeep several years ago. He hired Gehn soon there after and most recently sent him to Silverymoon on a job. Gehn went into The Rotten Apple Tavern there in Silverymoon and announced “I need help.” After a short interview process, he was joined by Methos, Tutela, and Jelenneth. The group headed east past Everlund, and over to meet Alistaire (human, wizard-that-never-finished-his-training) at his tower. Alistaire’s brother Jacob was a member of the Everlund City Guard that was sent on a mission to start up relations with a new Dwarven settlement nearby. The guards had been gone for some time but the city wasn’t willing to spare more for a search party. Alistaire thought the Orcs were involved and has been trying to rally the troops of the town to prepare for an Orc invasion. The party decided to head into town to see if they could get more information about the guards’ whereabouts. They met up with the guard captain, who was ever willing to allow someone else to look for the missing men, but didn’t think they were actually missing. He had assumed the trade negotiations with the Dwarves were just taking longer than expected and the guards would be back soon enough. When the party mentioned Alistaire’s thoughts of the Orc invasion, the guard captain dismissed Alistaire and his claims calling him “an eccentric old fool.” Once the party was given the location of the Dwarven settlement, they headed out.
