"Indeed Sir Gilrandir and Bard, despite is low birth, as shown, until now, that he has most of the qualities of a great king. Still..." and Elstan's face darken "...there are people in the shadow that dispute the claim of Bard on the throne of Dale.


This is where I need you. For the Gathering of the Five Armies that will happens next november, Bard want to look as lordly as King Dain and King Thranduil before his people. For that he want to wear the crown of Dale, the original crown that was worn by all king of Dale from its founding to the attack of Smaug. According to our research, During Smaug's attack on Dale, 175 years ago, Lord Girion gave the crown and other important treasures to one of his trusted man, Grimarr, and ordered him to flee and hide them in his hall, which is at the edge of the region we now call The Waste."

As Elstan told his story, he unrolled a map showing the region north of the Lonely Mountain with a circle at the West, near the Iron Mountains, where Grimarr's Hall is supposed to be.




" So, I need fine warriors and adventurers to travel there, find Grimarr's Fortress and bring back the crown before the celebrations. Are you up to the challenge? "

Maegilos nods when she sees the others agree to the adventure, obviously a bit anxious to stretch her legs once more and adventure through the lands.

Elstan seems hesitant after before dissmissing the first question: "It is just politics you know. If you remain discret, you won't need to worry about that for your quest. As for your second question, according to the records we found in the Marzabul Chamber of Erebor, Grimarr's Hall is built along the road going from the Lonely Mountain to the Iron Hills and is situated at the estern border where the desolation of Smaug ends. I am sure you can't miss it."

"Every dwarves that travel to the Iron Hills know the place. If you want, I can find you a guide to show you the place." add Gloin.

Maegilos gathers her supplies and follows the others. Once they are out of the hall she asks, "What roads do we wish to travel to reach Grimarr's Hall?"

Sounds good to me...

Daenîr nods to Maegilos. "Think the most direct way would be to go through Dale and then head for the Iron Hills via the western road..."

Gilrandir who became distracted earlier thinking how grand it would be to get the crown back to Dale snaps out of it and nods to his comrades and to Elstan. Consider it as good as done. We will leave as soon as we are able.

Daenîr bows to Gloin and Elstan. "M'lords let us be departing. Hopefully, we'll be returning before too long with good news."

Daenîr turns to depart with his friends...

The trip to Dale is short and uneventful. The road is made of stone like only the dwarves know how to make them and is well traveled. Once you enter Dale by southest gate, you instanly notice the difference with Esgaroth. Where Laketown's house are made of wood from Mirkwood, Dale's buildings are made of sturdy stone. In the streets, dwarves and men live in harmony. The wind bring you the sound of smithing from all over the city.





Elstan, who made the trip with you, said: " This is where we separate. Enjoy our beautiful city for a couple of days and if you need something, food, material, informations, etc, don't hesitate to ask me. Until we met again, farawell and good luck."


If you guys want to do some planning, now it's the moment. I also want to know if you want to change your travel roles. Finally, the guide will need to make the new embarkation roll (1d12+ survival proficency bonus + half wisdom modifier minus 2)

Gilrandir turns to his companions and says "I guess we would need to gather some supplies for the trip, rations and the like." Have any of you been north of the loney mountain in recent times?"

Gilrandir will try to gather information from the locals

There is numerous well looking store around you that could provide you with what you need, especially food but also tools.

As Gilrandir scan the area, he notices a man among a group of 5 ruff looking and armed people that seems to look at your party. When your gaze met, he turn back to his interlocutor and resume their discussion.

Maegilos follows Gilrandir as he approaches the man, staying a bit behind him and just out of reach of the men, a neutral but non-threatening look on her face.
