Grimbold shows up at the Vodagarazun looking for partners to kill a camp of Blogrum-Hai orcs who reside at Ilmaryen Keep in Mirkwood. It’s a stopover for supplies going from the Witch-King of Angmar to the Necromancer. They attack and slaughter every last orc. They split all of the loot with Grimbold and return 4 wagonloads of goods to Esgaroth, plus mark it as a safe site in the wood.
About this time Felkik begins paying Wulf to train him in martial arts and Andaeson buys his wine shop (The Golden Elixir).
