Calmyr managed to convince the High Sheriff to release Hazaan, changing the focus of the PCs from rescue to escort. The PCs discovered that the other “necromancer” was actually a worshiper of the Speaker in Dreams. They chose to take the prisoners through the sewers to avoid an ambush by the Sons of Yorick, They managed to avoid one ambush, but wandered into a different one, set up by Montaire’s allies. They defeated the monsters, though Montaire nearly escaped. Montaire was tackled by Sybil, but he had one last trick to play—he revealed a terrible secret about the Exalt to the paladin.
After the execution, Sybil went to check out the rumor about The Exalt given to her by Montaire. She discovered the Bones of St. Tremayne had some sort of sigils carved into them—and was confronted by The Exalt, who confirmed the rumor: she was, in fact, a Baelnorn, a form of lich.
Meanwhile, Kincaide and Talon followed up some other leads. They were pointed in the direction of the Cock and Balls tavern, and discovered The Lady herself laying in wait. The Lady put a charm on Kincaide, Talon grabbed him and tried to make a run for it, and then the room filled up with smoke!
