Lost Mine of Phandelver
Nezznar, the Black Spider
The Black Spider was responsible for tasking Klarg with abducting Gundren Rockseer, while Sildar Hallwinter. The drow wizard used the Cragmaw Goblins and the Redbrand Ruffians in his plans to capture and claim the Forge of Spells in Wave Echo Cave.
My spies in Neverwinter tell me that strangers are due to arrive in Phandalin. They could be working for the dwarves. Capture them if you can, kill them if you must, but don’t allow them to upset our plans. See that any dwarven maps in their possession are delivered to me with haste. I’m counting on you, larno. Don’t disappoint me.
The letter is signed with a sigil of a black spider.
