The city of Turvik appears to be full of worst that Ulfen society has to offer. Taxes on caravans are high, and the guards seem to regularly take bribes. The worst is the open and legal slave trade.
Sandru takes it on himself to free a shipment of slave using his bardic magic. First disguising himself as a guard and then putting a slave merchant and guard to sleep.
The party also re-encounter Kuma, the escaped prisioner. It seems he was taken as a slave. Sandru offers Kuma sancturary in the caravan.
The gate out of the city is heavily fortified. The guards seach each weapons. Senja pays the heavy tax. As the captain of the guard keeps a watchful eye to make sure their is nothing untoward going on. The escapee Kuma slips out under his nose, disguised in plain view as just another slave.
Ulf leads the party through the storm spear hills and over the mountains. Their are two paths to take. One going through the giant ruins the other through the forest. The party choose to take the path through the ruins.
