The party had been gathered in a bar in town where some card players were making a ruckus. During the ruckus with the card players, some commotion and eventually rioting occurred outside and several hobgoblins raided the bar – several with torches trying to light it aflame.
Heroically banding together the party defeated the hobgoblins and preserved the precious alcohol and bartender.
