At a pool, Ireena was grabbed and taken through a portal. Then dark clouds rolled in and a lightning bolt struck nearby, knocking everybody else down. Ismark was at least satisfied that Straudt did not take his sister.

A child came to the door looking for the abbot's wife to pray for them, as his mother was about to give birth. When the midwife delivered the baby, it did not cry. The locals were all saddened because it meant the baby had no soul, so they said. The party returned to the abbey.

Ezmarelda wanted to visit a tower, and the party joined her. Near a lake, thick fog rolled in. Esmeralda said she was looking for her mentor, Van Richten. The tower was in the middle of the lake, and a causeway led to it. The party crossed the causeway and approached the tower.

The door to the tower had a set of symbols on a plate, but no doorknob. The word Khazan was scribed over the lintel. The symbols on the plate on the door were body positions, and performing them in order caused the door to swing open.

The party entered the tower. There was a large dumbwaiter in the center, but the platform was on a different floor. There were four chains, and a clay statue near each. As the party approached a statue, it started pulling on the chain, and the platform landed. The party climbed aboard and the platform rose to the next level.

Brandt got off on the second floor, and crashed through the weak planks to the ground below. After recovering Brandt, the party went up to the third (and final) floor. There was a single room containing a chest, a suit of armor, a bed, and a desk. There was a disembodied head of a male vistani inside the chest; it was embalmed in oil. Someone said Khazan, and the armor approached the party. Brandt started telling the armor where to go, and it complied. The party left the tower with the armor and the chest with the head.

As the party headed back across the causeway, a group of wolves blocked their path. One of the wolves was exceptionally large.
