Tales of Verimitha
Gundren Rockseeker is the oldest of the three Rockseeker brothers, who have had several successful business ventures so far. Their most recent venture takes place around the small village of Phandalin where Gundren believes they may have found their biggest success yet. He had offered the party a reward for delivering some supplies to the town as there has been a recent surge of bandit activity in the area.
Riding ahead of the characters with his friend, the human Sildar Hallwinter, Gundren was appearently waylaid by goblins and taken prisoner. While our heroes attempted to rescue Gundren, they arrived too late and found him dead. To ad insult to injury, an apparent doppleganger tricked the heroes into giving it Gundren’s body. What nefarious purpose the doppleganger intends for Gundren’s corpse is, as yet, unknown.
