The party initially meets in the Hall of Justice in Neverwinter on Hammer 5th, 1368DR. Each member has seen a Call to Arms posted somewhere in the city and have arrived seeking work. They are greeted by Tymel Greyhammer, one of the priests of Tyr. He tells the party of at least 4 merchant caravans that have been attacked by bandits heading south along the High Road near the Neverwinter Woods delivering their wares to Waterdeep. He has enlisted the party to locate and find the bandits, rescue the merchants if possible, and bring the brigands to justice.
