The Mighty get back together at the Silver Dragon Inn and update each other on the relevant things they found and for dinner. The biggest question regards what to do next. They eventually decide that the troubles in the city of Hardby is the quest they would like to take on. However, they decide that Greyhawk deserves a week of enjoyment before their next adventure.
In an attempt to become acquainted with some of the wealthy of Greyhawk, Ahmed takes Tuvok on a night of revelry, starting at the most expensive inn he knows. One night becomes two as the end of an after party leads to a pre-party for the next night, then two days become three as Ahmed and Tuvok take part in what will be known as THE gathering(s) of the season that ‘anyone who was anyone’ was at. Sleep, rumors and apologies follow as Ahmed and Tuvok return to their companions, but they return victorious, with a letter of invitation from one of the lords of Greyhawk, Lord Janus de Layne.
The Mighty decide to try to learn more about what’s going on in Hardby and find that all the information and even the requirements of the job itself are behind a non-disclosure agreement. They sign and officially take on the job.
