Waking up on the Lanthion the Adroit Sophists met a strange man darkly cloaked, who gave them a package with instructions to deliver it to someone named Elbereth. After passing through the veil the party promptly passed out and awoke on another ship. They realized Riciendo was missing though no one really cared and that there was another mysterious man who woke up with them by the name of Thone Whitewand. The party met the ship captain Davenford the Third “Dave” and a young boy posing as a sailor Aaron. After learning of their whereabouts and getting acquainted with Thone Whitewand the captain told them of the coming storm.
