Book 3 – Part 5 – Thistletop Island
The group continued to stealthily investigate the Thistletop Stockade. They killed six goblins in the barracks. Then they confronted and killed Warchief Ripnugget in his throne room, along with his giant lizard mount, goblin warchanter, three commandos and six guards. Dodge was defeated in the battle, but Yriadel was able to resuscitate him with her powers.
In the exercise yard they freed Shadowmist from a storage shed. They completed searching the stockade, then descended underground.
They encountered Lyrie Acacia and Monakild Kleinberg in a research room. They captured and interrogated them. Lee murdered Monakild but they kept Lyrie as their prisoner. In the Chapel to Loptur they killed two Yeth Hounds. In the chieftan’s harem they encountered Bruzermush the bugbear, whom Glenlivet and Magna killed in battle, then they killed the four goblin wives.
They encountered Oreg Vancaskerkin, a bodyguard to Nauma. Kyran dueled him until Oreg surrendered. They interrogated Oreg and eventually returned his weapon and shield to him, as he pledged to aid them against Nauma. Oreg led them through the unexplored portions of the level, then they locked Lyrie in a prison cell and prepared to descend to the next lower level to confront Nauma.
