Ekemon investigated the scene where they defeated the scarecrow and discovered that it was built for one purpose – to spy on them.
Ekemon, Maritza, and Kobain were accosted by a group of guards, and after a brief melee they captured the guard leader and interrogated him. Kobain later "accidentally" suffocated him.
Meanwhile, Ragus attempted to flee to the temple of Tempus, but was interrupted by a group of guards and turned away. He and Helena are currently hidden in a harbour tower, trying to get past a guard patrol.
Unbeknownst to Ragus, his party members are just a few houses down, arguing over what they will do with the body of the guard Kobain just killed.
