The group spend 3 days resting up and mingling with the town and deciding what they do next. Vai marches off to the forests and attempts to train his wolves in the mean time. However on the 3rd night in the middle of a rain storm the group are awoken by desperate cries and knocking on the door. They are informed by the towns farmers that there is a monstrous beast attacking the center of town.
They rush out to the square see a werewolf! During the course of the fight they realise that it was Vai himself who had become cursed unfortunately. Soon after realising this they did their best to bring him down without any serious injuries but unfortunately they could not that. Vai became permanantly blind and was forced to adapt to it.
They had no real clue where cragmaw castle was and proceeded to head out to ThunderTree in hopes of finding some evidence along the way. Conviniently they ran into a bunch of orc bounty hunters in which Jasper Chro expertly “removed” them from existence. They noticed they had scrawled pictures of them and feeling insulted by this attempt on their lifes (With only a bounty of 500g) they proceed to look for the orcs main camps and make short work of them.
They sneak up to the camp and proceed on their attack but didn’t expect them to be bringing two ogres. They run and decide to regroup and comeup with a new plan, they ambush the ogre and the remaining orcs successfully and gain the loot gathered by them. They also find a scrawled note marking out the location of Cragmaw Castle. They still decide however on searching ThunderTree for any possible treasures which might aid them in their journeys.
They continue on forward through Thundertree where they are assaulted by a varying twigblights, strange stick like, tiny tree men. They dispatched them with ease. Continuing on their search into Thundertree they came across a man named Reidoth, a Human Druid who was a member of the Emerald Enclave. After some banter between the group and him they quickly decided they would help him take care of the Green Dragon up upon the hills.
They marched upon Thundertrees fabled tower and fought with the Green Dragon who proved to be difficult to contend with. The group just barely managed to survive the green dragons onslaught by a narrow margin. He brought those he attacked onto the brink of death but they survived.
After successfully slaying the Green Dragon the group decided to rest up in Thundertree in a tight hole to survive the night and restore themselves.
The songs of the dragon encounter are heard over taverns all around Phandalin!
