I dunno, look for the hidden goblin?
To actively look for the hidden goblin, roll a Wisdom (Perception) check, and it's Pieron's turn.

How far away is the goblin now that I see him?

For purposes of catching or attacking the goblin, it's near-ish to Zuzie and Kovoir (can run after it and attack in melee or with short-range spells or weapons) and farther from Pieron (will need to dash, or use ranged weapons, possibly with disadvantage if they're very short range). If you would like to do something like run after the goblin and wrestle it down, or follow it to wherever it's going, or something, we'll handle it as an ability check rather than worrying about relative distance and movement speed very hard. If you'd rather not move too far away from where you are and just try to shoot it, you'll have about two actions to try that before it vanishes into the foliage (extended by Kovoir spooking it into taking a longer route just now).

For visualization, here's the full map:

The goblin started between the trees on the west side of the southern embankment and is running northwest.

I vote chase the bastard down. I would, but I'm a stumpy dwarf in armor.

Just fyi I didn't add any rage bonuses to that attack, but raging itself doesn't require melee attacks to continue just attacks in general so that was fluff to justify me killing the goblin instead of attempting to capture it.

Sheet checks out. Initiative should be +2 (it's a Dexterity check, but no skills apply, so you generally don't add a proficiency bonus) and Strength 8 by my count.

In the events so far, the group has been hired by Gundren Rockseeker to escort a wagonload of supplies to Phandalin while he rode ahead to prepare things. They got ambushed by a band of goblins on the way, but made it to town alive and dropped off their supplies where they belonged. However, Gundren and his bodyguard have yet to arrive in Phandalin, and their horses were found on the road, killed by the same goblins a day or so back - implying they may have been captured or worse.

Phandalin is essentially inspired by wild west frontier mining towns. I'd like all characters to have some tie to Rockseeker, so perhaps he hired you to come to Phandalin a couple days ahead and keep your ear to the ground, make friends, act as a sort of PR? Then Barthen, who runs the general store and is Gundren's primary liaison, could hook you and the others up quickly for consulting on the disappearance of your employer.

Sounds about right. I think he'd work better as a liaison of sorts, spreading the word and whatnot. Given the whole half-elf thing, jobs might be hard to come by, he may feel somewhat indebted to Rockseeker. So if there's a chance he's alive, he'd want to try and mount a rescue.

Excellent. Barthen can send one of his apprentices to fetch Heylian and meet up with the party. For convenience's sake, please put the link to the sheet in the character creation and sheets thread so I can reference everything easily.

Today's post has a bunch of background story. Make sure to check the spoiler block - I'm assuming you're all interested in finding Gundren Rockseeker, as that was the point of asking everyone to have some prior connection with the NPC, but the ball of how to approach it is in your court.

Given how beat up Nan is, I assume a long rest would be preferable?

I DO have Cure wounds in my list. We're only level 1, so between the short rest HD dice and a spell, he could be fine, aye?

This is true, we'd just be down a couple spells from the prior encounter/healing.

Looks like this is what we're going with. I'll post IC shortly.
