- Leave him in the inn
- Groups split up
- Come back to see Malcolm being prepped for sacrifice by trogs and a sahaugin.
- Creatures escape out the windows.
Foster: So, this episode is where Foster really starts to struggle. 1) Trying to hide her overwhelming pain and anger at being sold to Malatyne. 2) Having to work with Amsah??? An agent of Malatyne? Oh no, no way, not at all. Foster actually tried to kill her a few times, but rolled poorly.
This episode delved into Brooks a bit, which was interesting. It highlighted the importance of relationships, especially with the icons: if Brooks weren't deep in with The Crusader, his side plot probably wouldn't have been so intriguing.
A++ to splitting the party for the sewer battle. Good job everyone, having absolutely no tanks or healers!
