The party decided that before pushing on to find Craigmaw Hold they should take Gundren’s cart and Sildar Hallwinter to Phandalin. Shortly after arriving in the town the party got into a scuffle with a group of local thugs called the Redbrands. The party tracked the Redbrands back to their hideout beneath an old collapsed manor house. After defeating the majority of the thugs the party found and slew their leader, the nefarious wizard Glasstaff (also known as Inaro Albrick). Glasstaff was also in league with the shadowy figure known as The Black Spider.
