Makes sense for Aurex to grab that. Errisaigh would likely suggest any one except Nate carry the ahem...useful sword...but probably not in Nate’s hearing. Totally for, like...insurance. Yep. Not that there’s anything wrong with that.

The Horn - The Lower Caverns
That was a bit of a modification to the adventure :-)
The Knot grabs what little useful gear the former leader had and follows Zikomo to his lair.
This large and high-vaulted cave drips with water so constantly it seems as if it is perpetually raining. Fetid pools and luminescent algae combine to give the chamber an ominous greenish glow and a lingering stench. The chamber is dominated by a large and impressive mud and stick hut that is surprisingly sturdy.
The temple itself is a single room almost thirty feet across. Inside, countless bones from those who have died upon Dagon’s altar decorate the place. A crude stone block is encrusted with old dried blood. Above the block, drawn in vibrant luminescent paint distilled from rare marsh plants, is the mad spiral rune of Dagon himself surrounded by countless scribbles of daemonic iconography copied from the Horn’s exterior. A fire pit burns in the center of the temple.
The Shaman casts a spell, drinks a potion and then steps into the flame cackling mad. "I sawz the future. I knowed that the slayers of Kumanda were to come to thisz plaze and that youz shall restore this Blessed place to greatness!
Thisz is why I hunt the upperz hallz to findz you!
Now you isz here and Kumanda, the fool is food!"
He looks at Grumble and cackles, "You must searches the upper hallz for itsz secretz. I canz help you..."
Havelyn clears his throat, "I will stay here with Zikomo. After all, he will need a strong hand to guide him through this difficult time. I think it more prudent if the halls were searched by the Knot only".
