Glass Staff AKA Iarno
Glass Staff was the leader of the Red Brands. We found him in the Red Brand hideout below Tressindor Manor. He worked for the Black Spider, and had the Black Spider’s bugbears working with the Red Brands.
Searching through Glass Staff’s belongings, we found an old book about Dwarves trying to create a magic mace at a magic forge in Wave Echo Cave. It’s possible Glass Staff and the Black Spider have plans for Wave Echo Cave and Gundrun.
Glass Staff’s real name is Iarno. Iarno was a high ranking officer in the Lord’s Alliance sent to Phandalin to bring the influence of the Lords’s Alliance to this town.
