Y’all go out drinking at Iiri’s Uncle’s bar. It’s nuts out there. You run into a couple who has some misunderstanding, you all work together to help them out. Then Iiri played a song.
The group rides with the guy whose hand got cut off’s twin brother, Brock, to Old Town and to see about bringing people back to life. You meet the necromancer Not Bintnen. She sends you to go get the philosopher’s shard from a cave. It’s become a smoke monster.
You sneak over, and some goblins are over there fighting. You ambush the hurt goblins after the fight and are able to kill them easily. Inside the Chattering Gnasher (what the smoke monster is called), insults all of you with psychic damage. You slay it and bring it back to Not Bintnen.
There’s an Orphan hide-out near by where you sleep for the night, having the same upsetting dream.
