Q performed the ritual and fused the crown whole again.
The party spoke with Gydd and found that she wanted to be raised.
Upon leaving the tomb, they encountered Molric who asked to meet them at the Fallen Truth the next morning for breakfast as he wanted to get their help again.
They brought Tikulti and Gydd to Gydd’s apartment and raised her.
They sent word to Captain Kalaes to meet them at Gydd and to bring his Truth Seer. They used the Guard Captain they met earlier and sent Tikulti’s rapier with him.
The sending stone was hidden in a glass of water to prevent the other side from hearing the conversation as they were unable to locate it on Demise or Tikulti.
Kalaes showed up and the party interrogated Tikulti, revealing that his master was just using Demise and that the Emerald Claw wouldn’t even admit her to their ranks.
Tikulti mentions that they are seeking the Dragon’s Eye, an artifact that could control dragons.
The sending stone made a muffled sound and while the party looked to investigate, Tikulti shifted his form and got his hands free.
Kalaes leapt from the balcony and landed on Tikulti restraining him. He sent the truth seer to retrieve the binding mages to take Tikulti to the prison.

The next morning they meet with Molric and his Cousin who requested help in clearing out some Orcs from a tunnel so they could open up the trade route again.
Grim eagerly wanted to accept the job. They agreed to speak with the Dwarf again the next morning as they had two more meetings that day.
Later that day they meet the Kalaes again and he inquires about the crown. He still would like it used as a bargaining tool to help the Wordbearers gain control and ally with Breland.
The party tells him of their intended journey to the Mror Holds and Kalaes suggest they try and help the dwarves as Breland can always use more allies.
Later that night they are having dinner at The Fallen Truth and waiting for Arruk. After two hours he doesn’t show up so they head to where he was recovering.
They spot a figure in the rain darting around the everbright lamps trying to remain hidden from view.
When they get to where the figure was, they find a freshly killed body.
Arruk comes running from the other direction and as he begins to speak, he stops. His eyes glaze over as the party moves towards him. He drops to his knees and falls over, revealing a warforged behind him with Arruk’s blood on his blade.
He attacks the party, and his accomplices soon climb from the underside of the bridge and begin attacking the party also, trying to push them off the edge of the bridge.
The party is able to dispatch them without any real harm being done to them, but as the warforged died, they released their final messengers. The party was able to stop 4 of them, but the 5th one seems to have disappeared during the battle.
After skillfully prying the final bits of magic from the first Final Messenger, Q was able to determine that these were destined for the Lord of the Blades, leader of the warforged rebellion in the Mournlands.
In the late professor’s sack, they found a blank Journal with an old House of Cannith logo on it. It radiates with magic.
Arruk is dead, a blank journal somehow linked, Kalaes is looking for allies, but the smell of Orc blood seems to have fueled the party to their next adventure.
