TL;DR Night in the cottage; **Aevar** shares his arrival in Aberland; **Fingers** medibates to *Tales of a Cambry Courtesan* and recognizes his parents in it; resume travel next morning; see ahead two figures on horseback engaged by wolf pack; join in fight against wolves; meet **Astrid Morninghide** and **Iselde Cloverdale**; discussion reveals they share a destination; **Iselde** explains that the bowl will be used for Yuan-ti transformations, which ends the party’s tentative arrangement with **the Whitesnakes**; party joins **Astrid** and **Iselde** on rescue mission; kobold ambush; arrive at ruins, met by **Gorian Erectus**
