Heroes of Archetype
The Innkeeper (who’s actual name we do not know) is a high ranking member of The Zhentarim. We met him at a bar that Halia tricked us into going inside. The bartender is blind, but he seems to have a supernatural side of him that allows a different kind of sight.
While at the bar, we killed all of his subordinates during a skirmish with Halia. He let loose with a golf-clap and demanded that we either replace his subordinates or find someone suitable for the job. We bribed a priest of Kelemvor and the bartender was content with this offer. When he presented himself to complete the transaction, he appeared not as the bartender, but as a hooded shadow creature that materialized in front of us.
The bartender gave information about The Black Spider to Palna, which lead us to Cragmaw Castle
