While the rest of the party is checking the area out Storm is in the basement of the tavern in spider form. He hatches a plan to cause a commotion. While the Goblin hammers away at fixing the broken chairs, Storm in spider form gets a good look at the room.
Huge casks of ale and wine. Broken furniture being mended by a goblin chained to a doghouse. A locked reinforced room that is most likely a “safe” Storm turns back into himself, hidden behind the pile of furniture. He casts Create Bonfire under the furniture pile, it bursts into flames, he slinks back into a dark corner.
The Goblin begins screaming and tugging at its chain, the upper door flings open and the hobgoblin rushes downstairs “WHAT DID YOU DO?” it screams at the goblin. Storm turns into a bear and leaps on the hobgoblin’s back.
Storm kills the hobgoblin quickly, the fire is now producing smoke and the goblin is still screaming as Storm in bear form rushes upstairs surprising a drow who appears in the doorway.
Again Storm mauls the drow and catches the other hobgoblin trying to escape out the door. There was a second drow who is already out the door as Storm mauls the hobgoblin to death then blinks out of the tavern
There is a huge commotion. Everyone who is scattered about the outpost sees and hears warnings, shouts, smoke, humanoids rushing toward or away from the tavern…..
Storm walks calmly away from his handy-work. The group is clustered about the tavern watching Drow rush inside, patrons stream outside and some smoke come out of the roof. Most likely they’ve sent someone inside with a create water spell to douse the flame.
Kvothe has returned from his foray into the cave and rounds up the others, “guys you got to see what I’ve found”
