QUEST: The Hobgoblin War Band
The quest board has a mission to retrieve as many weapons for the upcoming attack as possible. They suggest obtaining the weapons of the hobgoblin war bands wandering the woods.
There are two war bands wandering around the woods near where Sister Nebella’s brother was found. They each consist of three hobgoblins, and one is led by Targor Bloodsword, a hobgoblin with 20 hit points. He also has two wolf pets.
Follow the Wilderness Encounter table. With a 15-20, they find a war band.
They have no treasure, but the group without Targor carries bloody sacks, each containing the severed elf heads from their recent victory over an elf hunting party. Each group has a sword for each hobgoblin, and a bow for each elf killed. On a DC 20, they will give all weapons in exchange for a small amount of gold and a promise of return.
With a DC 15 Charisma (Persuasion) check, they will hand over the weapons from the elves.
The characters gain militia men equal to the number of weapons obtained.
