Dinner was had with the Ithronost family alongside Valdara, the great-great-grandmother of Derreth and Lyrabel. During conversation, the elven matriarch revealed that her father was an adventuring companion of Boresas and that the dwarf’s death may not have been what Kresh believes it to be. She also intimated to Renard later that she was dying of old age (despite her twentysomething appearance) and that this was her last visit to her family before passing.
In the morning, the adventurers attended a meeting of the Duke’s Mastery, the council which advises him. The Mastery worked out a deal with the adventurers to root out the devil cult, though the Duke’s agreement to march on Harlode came as a surprise to Korinn Vathra, the Mistress of Swords. Chamberlain Felan Dostar advised the party to perhaps follow up on Echo‘s suggestion of rooting out Ethelgrad to learn the details of his group’s rival.
The PCs fanned out and began investigations, which led them to a secret area deep within the territory along the river which belongs to House Delrenn. After an altercation with a halfling criminal group, the PCs entered the secret door. Inside, they found a dungeon adapted to the use of the cult of Yeenoghu and fought with some demons and cultists.
