The adventurers attempt the heist, and successfully take the shipment of ore and gold from the bandits. A mysterious note is found on the body of one, and another is taken hostage. As they travel the hostage mocks the gods and speaks as if things are going his way. The group encounters a river that should not be on the path, and has to stop to try finding a way past. As the group pulls things together, they are ambushed by Dyrdec and a large group of soldiers. As combat starts, they learn that he is not Dyrdec, but an impostor who killed him long before. A smokey haze bellows over the field, and the players lose consciousness.
