The rest of the tower is quickly cleaned out, including a sneaky thief and a nasty cleric both of the wererat persausion, and a grateful dwarfish community helped.
Back in Sigil, the party is ambushed in two separate places by hideous undead called Boneclaws. They are quickly cut down and must retreat, with Sveyn and Kolibri Little Bird particularly perilously close to death. This seems a coordinated attack, but who is behind it? The group suspect the wizard Montesque, who they assisted the Lady Lythara against.
Before they have a chance to investigate further, work comes their way: a messenger from a place called Eor requests their help to thwart some brigands for his Count. The group move through another portal and are granted an audience with the Count Brunis. He gives them the job, but during a briefing with local merchants who have fallen foul of the bandits, a rogue priest calls a column of flame to attempt to assassinate the Count. By luck, coupled with a good job from the group, the Count lives and the cleric is captured. But who is he and why does he wish the Count dead?
