Storm King's Thunder
Oren, the halfling bard of Goldenfields, is spooked by rumors that the giants are rampaging throughout the North. He has asked you to check on his sister, Lily, who works at the Happy Cow tavern in Daggerford and deliver a letter to her.
His sister Lily was upset by the letter's request for money, as their business has recently run on hard times due to the Zhent's taking over the town and undercutting the family moneylender business. The Zhents were hired after Lady Morwen took ill and was rushed off to Neverwinter. When she returned, she claimed she had been poisoned. She kicked her family out of the keep, locked the doors up tight, and now only appears from the gatehouse to deliver decrees. Except for her duchal guard, the town's security has been overtaken by the Zhents, and she meets with Nelkin "the Snail" Danniker once a week to ensure that the city's security is top notch.
