Elyndel showed up in the Rusty Kettle Tavern lost, cold and very nervous. He had hired mercenaries to see him safely to his destination but they turned on him taking most of his coin and leaving him to seek his way on his own. And to top it off, he was set upon by kobolds who stole the last precious possession he had. A family heirloom belonging to his great uncle. A few brave adventurers offered to help Elyndel retrieve his lost item. However, after doing so, they returned to the tavern to find Elyndel had gone missing.
