Go into the weapons store to deliver the box. The owner goes to get the funds, but does not return. The party waits 15 minutes.
They send one of his sons down to find out where he is. The son comes back in a panic, saying that he can’t find his father and there is blood down in the basement.
The party goes down into the basement to investigate, bringing the son with them.
Son tells the party that the money chest is missing from the basement.
The party sees that a wall in the basement has been broken in from the other side, and there is a light trail leading into the hole in the wall.
The party steps through the wall and discovers a tunnel carved into the ground. Following the tunnel, the round a bend and enter a larger chamber with a hole in the ground. A ladder descends into the hole.
The party descends the ladder, which ends in an alley of the previous city.
As they walk along the alley following the blood trail, they hear a ghostly scream. This unnerves a few of the party members.
The party continues to follow the trail, which is heading east. The party begins to move quicker in the hopes of catching up with whoever took the weapon smith.
After 30 minutes of walking, the party has still not caught up with the group they are following.
After 1 hour, the party happens upon an old cemetery. After some hesitation, they cross the cemetery which takes about 10 minutes. Nothing out of the ordinary, except the occasional ghostly scream happens during the crossing.
Around lunch time Dunren hears some Orcs talking up ahead. The party begins to slowly sneak up toward the Orcs.
