We set off for the Castle (a two-day trip). In the first night, we were set upon by a small pack of stirges, but they were quickly dispatched, much to our relief.
The next day, we arrived at the Castle. We slipped through a ruined part of the wall, and a short bit of exploration led to us barging in on a bugbear, a wolf, and a doppelganger appearing as a drow. Gundren was unconscious. After a tough fight, we conquered our foes, healed Gundren, and rested. (Talk and searching to be handled next session.)
