After finding Rivereye Badgerface at the Depository Tower the party learned how he had been overwhelmed by three elves who intended to steal the case with the information from Ragesia, and how Rivereye convinced them that the case was protected and needed a password. The gnome had also overheard the elves talk with the celestial Lantern Archon that accompanied them, and mentioned a contact at Gabal’s Schoo of Warl.
The characters followed that lead through the city, when they witnessed a wyvern and a griffon clash in the battle above them. The wyvern was hit by a lance and plummeted into a building right in the party’s path. When they inspected the crash site, the wyvern’s rider had already climbed down a rope and fled the scene, killing innocents on his way. The party followed his tracks in the fresh snow and cornered the ragesian fighter in a family home, where they ultimately defeated him.
At the school the party met Diogenes, a student there, who recognized their description of the Lantern Archon as the familiar of another student, an elven woman named Shealis Amlauril. He lead the characters to Shealis’ room, where they knocked politely. As no answer came, they eventually opened the door and just saw someone – assumably Shealis – fly away from the school followed by the glowing ball of light that is the Lantern Archon.
Thanks to three members of the party being elves or half-elves the party managed just fine getting into the Elvish Ghetto that Shealis had fled to. After a bit of asking around they found the Hideout that Shealis and her guards were using. The party did need the help of an invisible entity to get past the hidden and trapped door.
