In late Alturiak of 1489DR, Iarno Albrek was sent from Neverwinter by The Lords’ Alliance to establish a constabulary and militia in the frontier mining town of Phandalin. Within a few days, he went missing while wandering around the ruins of Tresendar Manor.
Two months later, Sildar Hallwinter was sent to find out what happened, and offered a reward for any information about his whereabouts.
On Tarsakh 22, Gorbek, Cal Talmost, Moran, and Tarrae Rasphyre searched the cellars under the Tresendar Manor the Redbrands had been using as a base of operations, and found correspondence indicating that their leader known as “Glasstaff” was actually Iarno. The wizard escaped before the party could confront him.
