After being warned of a dragon you press on and discover two dragons. A black dragon that is being ridden by a armoured dragonborn, and a bronze dragon that is being attacked by the black.
You interrupt the dragon fight. The bronze dragon, Aesofax, is from Lake Nen. It has a broken wing and is severely injured. It begs you to let it escape to the lake. It claims that the black dragon, Gallinfax, has stolen its hoard and is planning to burn Nenlast.
Gallinfax is being ridden by Meh-al Gar, the local cult leader that you learned of when you interrogated the prisoners back in Nenlast.
You quickly dispatch Meh-al Gar, but Gallinfax puts up a fierce fight, striking from his cloud of darkness. Finally he is brought down.
You contact Aesofax with a sending:
“Gallinfax dead. If you find hoard you are free to reclaim your part. We consider Gallinfax hoard as payment for assisting you.”
“You have my gratitude. I must recover. I will inform you if I find Gallinfax hoard.”
You are treated to a hero’s feast when you return to Nenlast and spend the night at Baron Erik oachin’s keep. Mercaiden is very suspicious of the Baroness Wallinda Joachin.
The next day you set out on horse back and make about 35 miles down the road toward Fiveleague House. You stop for the night in some low hills in barren, stoney lands. You set up camp and set watches. Mercaiden takes the first watch. During her watch a figure hurries by along the road in the darkness. Mercaiden halts him and detains him for questioning.
