The party takes on Mericta, nearly losing him as he flees. However, Corsibane utilizes new magic in order to block off his escape route. Mericta takes down Kaithias, before running back towards the front entrance. The party struggles to keep up, only catching him as he has to race through a doorway. The appearance of another stops him and he shouts out "Ibraac" before the party ends his life. Kaithias falls again, but is quickly tended to by Icarus. The rest of the party, spotting Icarus at the end of the hallway, confront him. Thorvalla moves to attack with her silver longsword, but Ibraac quickly disarms her of the blade. Galen, having summoned his earth elemental using the stone he found in the undead caverns, attacks Ibraac by slamming him against a wall. Ibraac claims he has come to do what he intended and transforms into a large wolf-like beast, quickly running away down the hall. The party gives chase and notices Mira unconscious in the hallway. Thorvalla stops to assist her while the elemental blocks off the escape route. Cornered, Ibraac turns back the other way, only to run directly into Corsibane, who had stayed behind with Kaithias. Corsibane throws the small marble found in the bandit fortress he single handedly overthrew. The Bead of Force quickly envelopes Ibraac, entrapping him. The party pushes him into another room and now have limited time to decide what to do with him.
