The Silvalin and Jade Mantis travel together into the Range of Broken Dreams. A lone kenu trails them, sneaks up on Kendal and steals her brooch of shielding . A brief chase ensues and Chen Tao slays the kenku and recovers the brooch.
That night, as the monks camp in an old ruin a horde of troglodytes attacks, pouring up from crevasses in the ground. Hundreds of trogs are slain before they are finally driven off.
