Tyranny of Dragons
Ardred works for the High Road Charter Company with the role of managing the caravan traffic to points north of the city. Ardred led a great caravan that, unbeknownst to him, was full of agents of the Cult of the Dragon transporting stole treasures from the Greenfields.
He hires the party to guard the caravan from Waterdeep to the Carnath Roadhouse. He is a strict leader with a strong aversion towards looting.He is politically connected within Neverwinter, and seems to get along rather well with Bog Luck.
