-**Summary:​** ​[Mission incomplete]+**Summary:​** ​Although this was clearly a taxing mission, the group was eventually successful in tracking down the mysterious "​A"​. Their investigation also uncovered a link between a cult leader named Merklaw Kes and the undead besieging Lodren'​s Gate. Dispatching Kes has struck a blow against the undead forces, and Rissel Tapp's forces now seem likely to overcome the town's attackers.

Seren Tantol filed a report that this mission had had a fatality ​(Zarra) ​just a few hours after it started. Eckhardt was assigned to the group as a replacement for Zarra, but even with his assistance, the group suffered a further fatality shortly later. This apparently involved Stoella, a roof, some falling and an unexpected beholder.

Rockwood asked for a receipt but I really hope he's forgotten about that since I seem to have misplaced that document.

 +===== Guildmistress Tarn's Notes =====
 +
 +Immediately after Thunderbane was done with the debriefing, Zulak requested a private audience with me to discuss this mission. Apparently, this group made contact with a source who had inside information about the lich Vedroth'​s plans. According to Zulak, the attacks on the towns on the mainland and even the invasion of Comack Island are merely a test of our readiness; Vedroth has no immediate intention of attacking Lockenport itself. Zulak expressed some concern that the elves of the Great Forest are Vedroth'​s primary target, which is consistent with other information recently made available to the Congress.
 +
 +Zulak refused to disclose the source of this intelligence,​ but reviewing the mission report, the woman "​Alindra Shadowmantle"​ seems the most likely person to have shared this intelligence. In any case, we must attempt to verify Vedroth'​s intentions as soon as possible.
 +
 +During our discussion, I decided to take Zulak into my confidence regarding my concern that the guild has been infiltrated by outside forces. I did not go into any detail on this matter, but Zulak is not one of those Guild members we suspect to be involved in this matter, and his insights might prove useful.
