Scout the Abbey
“Travelers on the Kina’s Road of late have been attacked by ore raiders as they travel through the Gardbury Downs. The attacks mostly occur in the vicinity of the old ruins of Gardmore Abbey, so I suspect the orcs are using the ruins as a lair. I’m hiring you to deal with these orcs. To start, I want you to go to the abbey and find out whether the orcs are lairing there. Come back and tell me what you find—as complete a picture of their lair and defenses as you can.”
Objective: Scout the ruins of Gardmore Abbey and assess the orcs’ defenses. Return to Padraig with a map of the abbey and an indication of the orcs’ numbers.
Reward: 250 XP per character, and Lord Padraig paid the party 600 gp.
