The Stockwood Scrolls
This former adventurer has retired to a cottage on an orchard in the town of Phandalin. The half-elf can’t quite let old habits die however, and keeps a watchful eye on proceedings in the town. Though past his fighting days himself, Daran knows that adventurers can often be of great use in the battle of good against evil.
Daran got to chatting at his orchard with Crag, Dug, Himo, and Zerok, and informed them of his belief that the Redbrands leader, Iarno Glasstaff, needed to be locked up. He also asked them to investigate strange occurences around Old Owl Well, from where several prospectors had been chased from the area by undead. The adventurers successfully locked up “Glasstaff” and investigated the Well, informing Daran that it was a necromancer named Hamun Kost who wished them no harm.
