2946: The Company delivered Legelavan to recover from her dark magic and curse-infused illness. They helped destroy orcs infiltrating the mountain from the mines. Then, they discovered the attack was a distraction for a theft in the archives. King Dain, handling the birthday party of his daughter, Maire, let the company bring three of his guards to Laketown to track down those responsible for the penetration of Erebor’s defenses. Unfortunately, the Master of Laketown brought the investigation to an end.

The Company convinced King Dain to provide an accountant, Dain’s sister Thrate, to discover the value of the Marsh Dwellers’ horde. During the mission, they rescued Gloin from the Marsh Dwellers and helped him complete his mission of delivering Dain’s message toFrar the Beardless that Erebor will not at this time aid him with the retaking of the Greydelve.
