An hour before dusk The Founders contact their allies in Pitax via a Sending spell asking them to make ready.
At dusk The Founders enter the city using Wind Walk spells and make for the Watch Station where they will meet with Captain Caelysse. As The Founders pass through the Watch Station’s parade ground they are set upon by a number of gargoyles. Although the gargoyles had strange, shadowy defences The Founders were able to slay them and make it to Captain Caelysse’s office in time to save him from two more gargoyles. From Captain Caelysse The Founder’s learnt that their plans had been dispatched but they elect to continue with their attack on the Thieves Guild. Using a map supplied by the captain The Founders locate the thieves’ lair. There they do battle with rogues and a minator, the latter of which escapes deeper into the guild house.
Penetrating deeper into the Thieves Guild The Founders encounter more minotaurs and rogues before confronting Kharne Vereel who is backed up by several more rogues, a pair of minotaurs, a troll and Imeckus Stroon. Attempts to negotiate with Vereel fail but when combat breaks out The Founders have a hidden ally in the form of the roguish gunslinger Nightingale.
The Founders, and Nightingale, are victorious but, despite the best efforts of Lynessa, Stroon escapes once again.
After the battle Nightingale declares her intention to take control what is left of Pitax’s Thieves’ Guild, although she will be stopping their interest in drugs dealing, and that she has secretly been in contact with Kreed for the last couple of years.
The Founders find Vereel’s ledgers and from them discover the identity of the traitor who had leaked their plans; a House Vascari foot-soldier called Andril Parno. They also find a key bearing the Pitaxian coat of arms.
After first giving the ledgers to their allies in House Liacenza The Founders go to The Riversong traders warehouse where they expose and capture Parno.
The Founders leave Pitax. Most of them return directly to the Aznagarian forces outside the city but Lynessa and King Aldous first teleport to Stag’s Fort. There Aldous is able to spend some time with his family and Lynessa, despite the late hour, purchases some scrolls of Dimensional Anchor and speaks to Kreed.
Tamary Numesti accepts Alex’s proposal of marriage. While it is impractical for Sergei to perform an Erastilian marriage ceremony for them then and there he does bless their union on the understanding that they have a full marriage ceremony as soon as practical.
Rumor: The safest part of Pitax Palace is underground and hidden.
