Galen is immediately summoned the following morning and travels to the school, finding Guardians Attrix and Pato waiting for him. It is here he is tasked with the job to accompany the rest of the party, even to the point of leaving his own world. After a rather bleak meeting, Attrix meets with him to offer assurances on her own good intentions. He eventually heads back to the inn, avoiding the party where he can.
Waiting at the inn, the rest of the party decides to look a little more at the city of Destitute and make their way to a marketplace Corsibane was wishing to visit. Thorvalla and Zwei take interest in a blacksmith, while Corsibane browses the artistic stalls. Kaithias stops at a potion shop and a tinkerer's shop.
