They walk through the ruins of Corundum, most have fled, but many perished.
They see a small band of looters and just before they engage they see a flurry of blades and magic destroy the looters.
Wyne and a short woman name Gwendoline Blackfoot sees them. They explain about the dragon brood that came. They explain that they rallied some and got them to safety.

They ask about Wyne, Lilac says “Follow me.” and brings them to a hill. A few people are about, they move out of the way and they see a pyre. Wyne is laid upon it, with his mighty sword across his chest and many wounds on his body. They conduct the ceremony and burn his body, sending his spirit to the gods to judge him.

He explains that a group that has existed for thousands of years to ensure The Pillars of Eternity, that hold up the emperor to the gates of heaven, stay there, so that the emperor can ascend to heaven. He is part of a group that is investigating, but they are always thwarted at the last minute. He knows that there some kind of pattern, and he’s pretty sure the Paladins have a lot to do with it. He asks them if they know anything about it.

The group speak with Gwen, she is angry that Wyne is dead and believes it to be somewhat their fault. She loved Wyne.

They spend the night (Vuvu with Lilac) and Hemmit and Jalana spend the night smoking sapphire weed. They experience a strange thing, they catch glimpses of each others dreams. Jalana sees the spires of the Twin Cities. Hemmit seed Jalanas grammy
They also experience the dreams of a man sitting near them, of how he worked on the field of the sapphire weed.

They leave after a tenday, after having their ship fixed.

They pop the boat on the river and set sail. Vuvu almost missing the boat again.

They stop at a port and find that they are selling the sapphire weed. A huge shipment arrived destined for the palace of the ShaKhan Majora. The group decides it’s in their best interest to steal it.

They disembark the Dragunship downriver under the cover of darkness and creep back into town. Making their way behind the warehouse and into the room was no small task, with Hemmit’s clanking armour. A lone creature in dazzling robes sits atop a pile of hessian sacks full of the plant. They ambush him, knocking him out and take as much as they can before escaping back to their boat, and immediately set sail, with Hemmit enjoying the fruits (or flowers) of their labour.
