Erky Timbers

An acolyte of Tymora, speaks Common, Draconic, Gnomish and Goblin. Has the cleric’s Channel Divinity: Turn Undead feature, which he can use once after each short or long rest. He has joined the party as a healer.

He told the party the following:

“Months past, I was on my way to seek my fortune and took the Old Road. My bad luck that the goblin bandits caught me; I’ve been here ever since. My deity’s blessings have kept me healthy; otherwise I’m sure I’d be dead from starvation or abuse.

I’ve heard the goblins talk about the Twilight Grove down below. A wicked old human called Belak – a spellcaster, I suspect – tends an enchanted garden and harvests fruit from something the goblins call the Gulthias Tree, but they speak of it only in the most terrified of whispers. The enchanted fruit grows on the Gulthias Tree.

The midsummer fruit restores spirit and vigor to those who eat it; the pale midwinter fruit steals the same. Belak allows the goblins to sell the fruit on the surface, but I don’t know why.

Twig blights live in the level below, with the Gulthias Tree.

The goblins caught three of the humans over a month ago, and they were captives with me in here for a while. They said their names were Talgen, Sharwyn, and Sir Braford. The goblins kept them in here only about a week before they removed them. Belak wanted them, and that’s the last I’ve heard about that."
