Puff, Puff, Ash?

Current Adventure - The Lost Mines of Phandelver

Rolen Moonshadow (Remy) - wood elf ranger of the Emerald Enclave
Mojo ar Meisce (David) - human monk
Saarkson (Paul) - tiefling warlock and Zhent agent
Rogar Lighttalon (Adam) - dwarf cleric and member of the Order of the Gauntlet

Warning Adventure Spoilers (especially if you're in my group)

The gaming session didn't go as planned. Having just defeated the Venomfang, the party sought refuge in the home of the druid of Thundertree. They celebrated their victory and took a long rest. The next day they decided to purge the rest of the town of undead and other threats. They fought several ash zombies and ash ogre zombies (because I wanted them to fight something with more umph and I have two zombie hulk minis).

I had planned an elaborate encounter using the graveyard scenery I've recently purchased. There were going to be zombies, ghouls, wights, a wraith and some orc envoys (part of the next session). And I didn't use any of them. Well I did keep the half-orc monk, Karsk, and his giant praying mantis. The adventure halted half-way through the night and he had a kung-fu movie battle with Mojo.

The party will still probably encounter the Broken Tusk orcs (and their ettin ally) next session, but things just didn't pan out the way I thought they would.

The party has essentially finished The Lost Mines of Phandelver. I had originally planned to take them into Hoard of the Dragon Queen, but now I think I'm just going to do my own thing.

Next session the party will take some downtime. Rolen wants to hire some alchemists and and armor smiths to work on Venomfang's corpse with him. Having discovered a halfling cookbook, penned by my former character Ollo Tosskettle, Mojo has decided he wants to learn halfing and now to cook. I haven't spoken with Paul or Adam, so I don't know Rogar or Saarkson's plans. I'm sure they will involve their organization ties.
