The party returned from the Cult of Malek’s settlement and were spotted by a scout from the bandit group the Red Claw. They interrogated him and ended up killing him and desecrating his body. After his death, they used the Horn of Malek on him and he said “Red Dawn rises, friend”.
After returning to Forger’s Hold, the party found out about a sage that could potentially tell them the location of the Red Claw leader. They seek out the sage, persuade him to reveal the location, and venture to the hideout.
Upon arrival at the cavern entrance they quickly slaughter the 6 guards on the surface and proceed inside, killing several more guards.
