PCs discover Flotche selling his foul wares in the merchant district of Diastchlin. Hid knocks him out, summons "street judges" and they find some foul animal remnants in his box. Flotche is arrested, and Hidmiquu is sentenced to 30 days for hitting. Hid talks his way out of getting arrested, so they defer his sentence.
PCs are told there is an Earthquake-like rift appearing in Estron. There are reports that this might lead to the lair of Murcaado. After getting magic items and resting, PCs take screwpods to Estron from Diastchlin.
They arrive and see a valley before them. Beyond the valley is a plateau with the rift rumbling and spewing matter.
