In the Easthaven ferry, the Marshals find a pair of maps. Both yield important clues. The first is a map of Icewind Dale, pointing out all ten towns, the duergar outpost near Caer-Konig, and a new location labeled Sunblight far to the south.

The other map shows Easthaven, with various notes and markings. One in particular catches their eye: the town hall circled multiple times, with the words “charadlyn statue” written in dwarvish. A pinned note reveals the plan: they know the Marshals are coming, and are moving to steal as much chardalyn as they can, tonight.

After an uneventful few hours on the road, the Marshals arrived in Good Mead, a town dominated by a large Mead Hall. A crowd had gathered in front of the building, demanding answers as to why it was closed. The building manager and corporate boss, Olivessa, kept everyone back, assuring that help was on the way.

And help had arrived in the form of the Marshals.

Edmond flashed his badge and the Speaker became a bit more grateful, though the party was unimpressed with his deposed predicament. He confirmed Avarice’s story: Kadroth had taken over the castle after they had agreed to work together to produce magical items from chardalyn. But Kadroth betrayed Crannoc, slew his guards, and kept him under house arrest to sign official documents and reply to letters.
