Finally meeting ‘The Turned One’ The party learns that the Fyde, the nightmarish realm that comes and goes at random, is really the realm of souls. They are then sent to investigate the dark lands to see if the cause of the Fyde merging with the land of the living is indeed caused by the Black Dragon. Bringing them to his armoury, he repaired Walter, making him better (he had the technology), and gave them each an item.
Taking a carriage (the same one they got from Rothes), they made their way across Nyfteen, stopping at the town of Rikdom for supplies, and met some interesting characters (and made some interesting deals) and one sad and desperate farmer. Then on their way to the dark lands, the ground caves in underneath them. Carriage and all plummet hundreds of feet down, crashing in a dark cavern. All safe and accounted for, they make their way towards a tunnel with some light, only to find that the rat things that they have been encountering are down there as well. And have slaves. Taking a hint from a slave, they cautiously make their way down a tunnel, to encounter some rat things digging with a crude drill device. After dispatching the rat/drill team, they make their way up a tunnel the creatures dug and freed a slave, who is a steam inventor, who won’t leave without his sword. He tells them that there is three rat things in charge, Ikett, the leader, his subordinate Hissk, and Skolrid, a nasty warrior. The session ends after an encounter with three rat ogre things.
