24th of Claysow
Nashida is woken up by Always-Big-Whiskers who wanted to say goodbye before he left. Panya had infiltrated the caravan, disguised herself as Zaid, and bluffed the air planar creatures into fleeing. Zaid corralled everyone in the caravan, and had Nashida search them while he searched the belongings. He found Panya’s magic item stash. Badr came up with a way to magically identify which one was Panya, and when he did she went invisible and ran. Zaid threw a web spell, Badr threw an entangle spell, and the bee got her before she made it to the invisible vulture.
The rider, Moosha Obeid, said that Panya only paid for extraction not rescue, and as she was unable to complete her end of the escape and return to pay her outstanding balance, the contract with her was voided. He said Raheema, the leader of the Talon Company could come and negotiate soon.
25th of Claysow
Under interrogation by Anbilla, Panya reveals the Equality conquest of Calon and Bessel are being done in the Ormward’s name to force the nation out of isolationism and into world revolution. She says the Talon Company should be holding several of Zaid’s family members. She also mentions that purple eyed members of non-Riverborn Kinds, giants, and possibly other non-humans joined the fleet before it left the Fens.
Anbilla had Badr drop Panya in the middle of the desert with no food or water with the pronouncement that if death was an unjust sentence, the god of justice would provide for her.
