Lost Mine of Phandelver
The Redbrand Ruffians are a gang of bandits, extortionists, and thugs that terrorize Phandalin.
The men and women of this gang adorn themselves with simple red tattoos depicting knives, skulls, and flowing text, that seem to denote rank and deeds. They wear tattered red cloaks to show they are affiliated with the gang.
The heroes cleared out the Redbrand presence underneath Tresendar Manor, where the criminals were using the family crypt as a hideout, slaying their leader The Glass Staff, and ending the criminal organization's presence in Phandalin.
