Nyx and Ryker arrived outside the city gates whereupon they found Col bleeding and near death. Taking it upon themselves to rescue him from death, they proceeded to enter the city gates.
The guards at the gates required them to surrender their arms and armor. Due to a recent kidnapping the city watch was taking no chances and tensions were running high.

After subdoing the villians, the group discovered these villains were under the control of some other being by means of a geas. They tracked another of these unwilling villains toward a nearby farm.
