At the outset of the episode, SRD found themselves in camp along the road out of Torga toward New Dalton. They were seeking a ship for Werkham, a Daltoner who had contracted them to discover the whereabouts of a lost ship and recover some files from the ship. Rupert experimented with some glyph spells to try to replicate a water-breathing spell while Dewey created a raft and Soren made a wolf stew.
A stranger suddenly appeared in camp, warning of a coming storm. Soon after his disappearance, a terrible storm began, forcing the group under a tarp for the night. They awoke in a dream and were transported to Trass, where they found and spoke with Gruumsh. He chastised them for not pursuing their quest more completely and for leaving the city. Following an altercation with them, he returned them to the waking world and revoked the benefits of the blessings of the Rock Paladin.
As the group headed back along the road to Torga, Dewey sighted the ship that they were assigned to find off the coast. Rupert flew the group to the ship where they managed to discover the necessary paperwork in a hidden compartment of a desk. Dewey made a quick search below decks, which led to his and Rupert’s discovery of fifteen hideously grinning corpses. In a panic, the group rapidly departed the ship and set it ablaze.
Back on land, they walked back to Torga, discussing their options. When they finally arrived in town, Dewey went to turn in the files to Werkham while Soren and Rupert returned to the Keyhole. Dewey encountered Kurtz and Walter on his way, and after a brief discussion and conflict, went on his way.
