Interrogations and Battle Training
Bring kobolds back with us to Adventurer’s Guild. One is Tikwik (sleeping door guard) and other has symbol on head (spiral with 9 equal spaced dots). On creatures: heavy shielded metal container (saltpeter, charcoal, sulfur). Swirl-headed kobold appears unresponsive. Find out from Erasmus that the symbol is that of Tharzidun (The Chained God). Zara is disturbed by the mark. She recognizes it.
Tikwik explains they got bomb materials from a spy who works for their leader. Tikwik describes the spy as a Red Tail Kobold, but with only one eye. Party drops Tikwik off at north end of town.
