[What happened in the session]
Kain of Valiant Arms, sent the party on a mission to find out what happened with the missing trading caravan from NeverWinter. Additionally he provided the party 50 gp and 30 rations for traveling expenses.
Furthermore upon completion of mission, Kane promised to give each party member 25 gp and one magic item of their choosing (GM: based on level).
The party left WaterDeep and made their way across the path leading to winterhold. They briefly stop at a point between Waterdeep and Thornhold due to a finding a broken wagon.
Inside the wagon, they found broken boxes and scatter items. However, nothing was stolen as far as they could tell. They also noticed that the tracks have been neatly cleaned with magic and all the bodies along with the horses are missing from the wagon. In fact, the other wagons are not around either.
Upon further inspecting the items, they began to notice that the equipment was crudely made and saw that books were hollowed out in one of the boxes. It looks like they took some of the books. In conclusion, whatever attacked the wagon was looking for something that was hidden in hollowed out books.
Other than that, they went on their merry way to thornhold which for some strange reason is bustling with excitement…
