Dungeons and Dragons 5th Edition
Guildmaster of the Miners Exchange in Phandalin
The guildmaster is an ambitious and calculating human woman named Halia Thornton. In her attempts to establish the Miner’s Exchange as the closest thing the town has to a governing authority, she acts as more than a simple merchant.
She tasked the adventurers with seeking out a goblin in the Tresendar Manor, where she suspected the Redbrands were making their hideout. She heard rumor that they had kept a goblin as a pet and figured it may know something about Cragmaw Castle. For this information, she asked that they bring back any information about the Redbrands leader, Glasstaff.
Cas had a sense that she may have ulterior motives for what she has asked of them.
