After helping the confused ex-slaves get out of the tempestuous waters and seek cover from the typhoon the group meets the newcomer. The elf with the ibex horns who just came out of the water presents himself as Yalagaddien, druid from the south. Fenna asks him about Markahn, the druid she met in dreams days ago, but the druid hadn’t heard of her. As a consolation he offers Fenna to partake in a private druid ritual to soothe the body but she refuses.
The group, along with their twenty recently freed slaves and friends, leaves Zoqoi aboard Phinneas’s airship. Soon after their departure Dave asks Fenna for permission to go back to the Gromsson fortress and marry his dwarf girlfriend, Fjorna. Albrecht, concerned about Caelynna’s vengeful spirit towards her husband, Vaynor, tries to talk some sense into her. The attempt fails as Albrecht finds himself unable to condemn Vaynor’s libertine conduct. Meanwhile Conan, the old slave the group freed at Olga’s dungeon, reveals to Gravel, the revenant, that he is the reincarnation of Lohra, the daughter of the demon lord Osirik, who was brutally killed by another demon, not by angels as everybody believes.
A split second before the group charged on the devil and the guards in the storage room another pair of dominatrix guards arrives, picks up the devil and immediately leaves. The group gives them ample time to leave and then charges and easily disposes of the remaining guards. Ada and Caelynna sneakily leading the group. Ada and Caelynna lead the group towards the main hall where Olga is participating in the necromantic ritual being held by Yaggira, the allegedly-undead slave lord.
After clearing the sewers the heroes enter Olga’s dungeon. The place appears to be a sex training facility built on a network of ancient piranha infested grottos. As the heroes explore the exquisitely decorated amidst aromatic incense, deep red curtains and surreal underwater lights they free several tormented souls from their pain devils torturers. The group also bestows freedom upon a couple of cleaning slave ladies they find one of the rooms.
After gathering vital information about Olga’s dungeon the heroes leave Kamal and Ashura in charge of Sahyeh back at the inn and head to the sewers. Once there they meet a group of lethally wounded scavenging wererats. Albrecht and Fenna heal them and then the wererats recount how they barely made it alive of a skirmish with “dangerous sewer monsters full of tentacles”. Despite the warnings the group leaves the wererats behind and push forward into the dungeon.
After landing in Zoqoi Ada finds out that Zormack, an old enemy of hers who owned a rare creatures circus, is in town organizing a series of events at the local colosseum where innocent creatures are being pitted against each other. The rest of the group stops Ada from exercising revenge on the spot and, after accepting Pilialoha’s request to join them and after following Fenna’s suggestion of securing a vessel, the group heads towards Olga’s villa with one goal in mind: freeing Dave.
The heroes board the Lucius Enterprises and cast off towards Zoqoi. Aboard the ship is Pilialoha, a seven hundred pounds joyful human bard who insists that music is in the fabric of the universe. One day during the fly, while Fenna is cleaning up the ponies’ poo inside the hold she finds a stowaway. Gravel, the revenant they met weeks ago, is planning on infiltrating Olga’s dungeon in search of a particular slave who may know something about the circumstances surrounding Gravel’s resurrection from the dead.
After Hammer is brought back to life the group starts interrogating the poor soul about the angels and Hamer’s past. Meanwhile Ada sneaks into Hammer’s villa irresistible tempted to open the hidden door she found earlier but a servant finds her and brings her outside. While the interrogation continues a bored Ada meets Negoth and exchanges the Wand of Koyss for an amulet as they had previously agreed. With the recent attack so close and the shadar-kai roaming around the group resolves to sleep together at Mara-kai’s house that night.
Fenna returns to town to wake her friends up but when they get back to the forest the shadar-kai are nowhere to be seen. In the confusion of the night Ada snatches the Wand of Koyss from the church of Pelor, replaces it with a decoy and buries the real one before deciding what to do with it. The next day Rar’am villagers award Mara-kai and Albrecht with traditional ponchos for their health contributions to the community.
Once outside of the underground caverns Albrecht finds out that carrying the Wand of Koyss has aged him two decades. Caelynna finds him even more irresistible. The heroes arrive to Rar’am and spend a few days healing Mara-kai’s father and a few other townsfolk afflicted by the Wand’s curse. Hammer, Rar’am’s warforged major, invites the group to a thank you dinner but the day before that Baldur is found dead. Fenna’s autopsy points to poison as the cause of death.
