In the adventure module Rise of Tiamat, one of the conflicts involves:
The Red Wizards of Thay
These characters are tantamount to one of the evil plots, so I'm trying to account for them all since my players may decide to attempt to assassinate them. In one section it is detailed:
"All of the Red Wizards are presently in the Temple of Tiamat." (20,21 on page 83). This seems to refer to the 9 generic Red Wizards and Rath Modal.
...but then in another section (seemingly contradicting the prior):
Red Wizards not performing the ritual are embedded with mercenary units and troops of armed cultists to provide extra firepower. (Red Wizards on page 86)
How many of these characters satisfy the latter case, if any? Is there some different meaning behind these two passages that I'm missing?
