While traveling north towards Rhest the group meets up with a familiar roadblock. They fight and destroy the blockade, but in the process lose two of their number. Gaius Retland and Phan both pass from this world.
Taius meets up with a couple of old friends and they continue towards Rhest. They meet a rather strange lizard/dragon creature that has slain an elf and his mount. Just after they finish dealing with the creature they are approached by a group of Tiri Kitorian scouts.
