After defeating the mighty worm, the party follow the new formed tunnel its trip to the surface created. A small, rough-hewn cavern greets them. Although it is abandoned, the image of a hobgoblin appears to taunt and threaten them amid a primitive shrine to Tiamat.
Pushing on towards Flamekeep, they experience firsthand the intolerance of the Knights of Thrane. Da-Xia’s casual insult nearly lands them in trouble, although her sweet words avoid an incident in the end.
At Flamekeep, the party accepts passage on a riverboat bound for Karrlakton.
