The party learned from Aelar that the Bronze Fist and Ice Claw kobold tribes have been a problem for travelers going between Fallcrest and Winterhaven. The seven set out to a nearby abandoned manor now known as Kobold Hall, the center of the Ice Claw tribe. There, they made their way past deadly kobold traps and defeat the kobolds in the manor. Seluku took a Staff of the War Mage from a slain wyrmpriest. They found a frozen door that led to a frozen cave, the lair of a white dragon hatchling, Ice Claw. The party fought and killed Ice Claw, skinning it for its hide and scales. Amongst the hatchling’s treasure cache they also found a red dragon hide and a life-drinker sword, which Kairon took. (This group later will be known as Curious Company – Alpha Squad and in the journal as CCA)
A short while later, three others: Daeghan the Dwarven Druid, Gorath the Sauron Fighter, and Varis the Half-Elven Cleric of Kord arrive in Fallcrest. They decide to travel to Winterhaven and deal with the Bronze Fist kobolds and trek down the King’s Road towards Winterhaven. Aelar tells them that his old mentor, a Gelfkin named Douven Staul was last seen in Winterhaven, and gives them a sealed letter to delvier to Douven, if he is there. (This group became Curious Company – Beta Squad, CCB)
CCB bypassed the kobold manor and CCA and they do not see each other.
