The Heroes of Drellin’s Ferry returned to the town on the road to the Hammerfist Holds. On the way, they were joined by Elkantar, who had been searching for information on any other surviving Keepers of Eth. Drellin’s Ferry, as promised, was dark and evacuated. The only sign of habitation was a small group of tieflings clustered outside Jarrett’s Sundries, where the heroes had hoped to stock up on supplies and possibly spend the night. Rudely warned them off by the tieflings, Cyress, Elkantar, Thistle, and Tirah pretended to be just passing through while Frug snuck up on the tieflings from behind and blasted them with a psychic mote.
Joining the tieflings in battle was Cyress’s old nemesis, Lady Dagger, who had been in her store collecting something. Unlike her tiefling thugs the heroes had encountered previously, these seemed to be made of stronger stuff, some even possessing magic. Nevertheless, the Heroes of Drellin’s Ferry prevailed once more, though the slippery Lady Dagger herself managed to teleport to safety and escape again. Captured was another female tiefling, from whom the victors learned that she was part of the Fell Court, a group dedicated to restoring the ancient tiefling empire of Bael Turath. To this end, they are searching for the lost dwarven city of Glitterhame, whose riches and arms might allow them to do just that. It seemed that Lady Dagger had returned to her store to gather more of the arcane portal tiles linked to that fantastic fortress.
