Sandru leads the group up into the top spire of Brinewall Castle. [Senja crept into the shadows to spy on the Humanoid spider and is forgotten]. There they find a mute bird-woman. She touches Sandru’s hand and speaks to him in the intimacy of the mind. She asks him to kill Kikonu, apparently he is a poor lover and play-write.
The group leave Zaiobe and fight their way through lizard-men and into the Castle Dungeon / Kitchen. They then fight a retreating battle back up the way they came with a horde of the lizard creatures following them. The battle attracts more repugnant reptiles, some who flee deeper into the castle.
The group fight their way out of castle [and find Senja in a battle with the man-spider] and flee to the sanctuary of their caravan.
