Gregor, Pavel & Zinder attend a “celebratory” dinner party at the Governor’s mansion in Kyrn. Gregor connects with the Captain he’s been seeking and conducts some business. We also speak with the captain of the ship on which the man in black booked passage but learn little about him, other than that he appeared to be avoiding pursuers from the sea. We re-supply, then book passage on a fast sloop towards the sea cave where the Fang has been taken. During the voyage Zinder has a vision of the man in black showing the Fang to two Rhune men in unfamiliar garb and appearance, one of whom is a caster. They are inside the sea cave, which apparently contains a large mansion. Zinder awakes to a call for all hands on deck; apparently the sloop has spotted another vessel in the night. Zinder sends Grundle to investigate.
