Hallabiri arrives just behind the second group of guards who immediately engage with the party. The party decide that the best course of action is to get inside the fortress. They manage to force the gate open and push back the guards, then close the gate again.
Inside, the courtyard is full of local ice genasi. None of the invaders can be seen.
The party finds an empty building and takes a rest.
Grae then scouts the town hall. He manages to break one lock, but enters another door, cloaked in invisibility.
Inside he finds that the entire town hall has been converted from a council chamber to some sort of ritual chamber. All the furniture has been removed and is replaced by a large cistern containing water.
The town hall is occupied by two water archons and two ice genasi from the other tribe.
Grae is detected and attacked but manages to escape back to the party.
A plan is concocted to attack from two sides. Grae unlocks two different doors and prepares to attack. Unfortunately, Grae makes a noise, alerting those within the town hall of their presence.
The party bursts in and engages the archons and the genasi. One of the archons begins a ritual that rapidly fills the room with water. After defeating the archons and the genasi, Grae manages to defeat the ritual that is filling the room with water, Hallabiri retrieves an orb from the bottom of the pool, and Baaki smashes one of the doors open, releasing all the water from the town hall in a deluge.
