Briefly talked about what path to take, Zorjub scouted around and reported what he saw.
Group decided to go into Left as it was a known danger, rather than Right which was unknown even though it could have been safe.
Left side had 3 Arbelists guarding the bridge. Adal and Kraden held a door up to block the crossbow bolts they fired so the group got across safely. Adal and Kraden then hammered the door down, and we went in and…

See The Captain/whatever giant duergar using the crystal orb, he says Gendar and then talking to someone on the crystal ball about things. Gendar then talks back.Both in Duergar, they are talking about murklmar? The leader of the Horned Hall. Gendar sighs and ‘whatd he do now’
Thaele says, “The command word is the name of the guy who sent us after the skull thing”
Kraden (after failing an int save) goes, “who, Gendar?” and the orb lights up and with a picture of Gendar in it.
He looks exasperated. He says something like “what now Rundar? What is Murklemor doing to you now.” Then stops and says in common, “Ohh I dont think things are going good for him right now. I guess you guys are doing WELL there are you? I guess I’ll have to get a new spy. I take it you’re doing welll at the Horned Hold?” Beril says something about the arbalests, “I got some good money for those”
“I bribed someone to give me occasional inside information, but mostly got information about Murklemor. I’m pretty sure you’d know if you ran into him. He doesnt usually leave. Hes the big guy in charge. Not aware of any slaves they got recently. Not concerned about slaves they get unless I am interested in one. "
