The party awakes to some commotion, and soon finds out that the people of Thardis have discovered the dead bandits. An impromptu celebration is held. Lord Ashley gives the party a sack of gold in exchange for retconning his hiring of the Nexus. Ale is served!
Back in Cliffport, the Nexus finds Kyr in some distress. She sends the party on an emergency mission given the BB by Astranth. They travel to an old castle on a hill, and dispatch a young white dragon with… um… dispatch.
On their return, Kyr grants the party a full explanation of her organization’s ties with Astranth, namely the blue’s habit of using the business to add to his horde.
