Ah, it has been a while and I apologise. I’ve been very busy finishing my degree (only a few days before my very last assessment is due).
So The Phandelvers have continued, with the lead party recounts attached below.
As for the girls one, that has sadly sat on the side a little with my own time pressures and their school term starting back up again.
However, they are in the middle of some minor tasks around the campaign. They’ve visited the Hag, neither group thought to ask it a different question. The girls have also visited the traveling mage and provided feedback to the town. Lastly they found their way to Thundertree village and started looking about. They’re not too keen on engaging the spiders or the dragon (unlike another bunch I know!)
However both groups now know where Cragmaw Castle is, and the “not my girls group” now have someone to guide them to the mine, both groups are soon to head into the final chapter of this adventure. Exciting times….
