The party scrambles to stop the many-pronged assault of Demon Queen Corson’s army. Step one: the party splits up to smoke out the traitor within Forge. Meanwhile, the enemy unleashes a wave of rust monsters in the sewers. Is anyone greasy enough to stop them?
Rust monsters halted just in time, Manuél makes a treaty with Corson's advance troop of ravenous manticores, which will probably go poorly in the future. An enormous artillery-piece is sabotaged in spectacular fashion by Nav's crack team.
Scarlett swallows her pride, and asks the Great Gold Wyrm’s spirit for help in ending a plague. Mint uses a secret elven weapon to stop a bombing run by pterano… ptera… flying dinosaurs.
In the grand finale, the team faces off against an enormous siege machine: The Vajra Drill. Standing triumphant-- even having discovered the Soul of Stone's true identity as the Dwarf King himself-- the party is laid low by horrendous news. Audriel, first mate of the reluctant Captain Margaret's ship, has been captured by the Red Fang; there were no other survivors among the crew.
