The Black Cats execute the defeated Runelord Xanderghul. They discover his plans to combat Runelord Alaznist’s distortions of history. He had found a back door into Crystilan, the City Outside of Time and the only place unaffected by her temporal manipulations.
The adventurers befriend and name the Shadow Librarian, Sule. They also vanquish the angry Peacock Spirit Cultists, but spare most of them. They convince the surviving leader, Turan, to have the cultists throughout Varisia stand down.
