The party enters the village of Starren and has some time to kill while they are waiting on the lift to come down and take them up into the city of Starrengeld. The have a run in with a member of the traveling company who they previously rented their now heavily damaged cart from. Hearing about what had happened to them Lydia, the mayor of the village, pulled them into the tavern for some drinks to tell them about Grimfang.
They learn that Grimfang is a large gnoll that may or may not be a myth, however, his band of gnolls that occasionally attack people on the road are very real. Unfortunately, the damage being done hasn’t been enough for Port Norsal’s leadership to get heavily involved, and dwarves do not have enough forces to wipe them out. Rem goes to talk to the leader of the village guard, the Black Guard, and is offered a nice sum of money if they can track down Grimfang’s camp and return with any useful information.
After sorting everything out in the village, the lift up to Starrengeld touches down and the party begins their slow climb up the mountain.
