On Nestra’s orders the group are given passage north on the waterways, an unusual cat hot on their heels. Bartok and Myfariel disable the initial trap but the group waiting in ambush trigger their next trap blocking the canal ahead. The group are set upon by the red dragonborn and his band of lizard folk and kobolds. The unusual cat becomes a gnome who proceeds to throw a bear into the fray! Balasar dissects the dragonborn and the party dispatch his followers who swarm in from both sides. The gnome introduces herself as Jänis and although happy to speak with Willow she is wary of the others. In exchange for our help Nestra arranges for us to travel to Mirabar immediately by teleportation circle.
