-At the Avensoar the others find that Natalya hasn't been arrested and when speaking to the city watch they are directed to look for the tower girls for more information on Natalya, not knowing where the tower girls are the guard points them to a local named Fenster the Blight who may know more.
-The group meets up to share what they have found and head back to the Lodge for some diner. Between food and drink the group plans their next steps.
-Heading to Underbridge the group seeks out Fenster the Blight. He tells them that the tower girls stay in his warehouse and at the mention of slavers he notes he has seen blue dwarfs roaming about and thinks they are responsible. Vel threatens the man and finally gets some useful info that he has seen Natalya in a nearby building in underbridge and tells the group how to get there.

-Not turning over Natalya a fight breaks out but the group manages to come out on top. They steal a cart and transport Natalya back to the lodge.
-Getting back to the lodge it is discovered that the shard Es retrieved from Natalya actually cursed her. Lady Heidmarch surprised at the discovery asks the group to eat and get some rest and they will talk in the morning.
-While half of the group stays behind at the lodge, the other half heads back to the Puffy Pelican to see if the rumor of slavers was true. Unlike before, the tavern seems to be in use now. Eventually they discover that a low-life has set a trap for them there. They capture the man and bring him back to the lodge.

-The next morning another fight breaks out between Vel and Es, and Vel once again puts Es down.
