The following day the party paid another visit to the slave market where they executed a plan to reclaim the magical rod Vindir traded for the halflings lives. Not all went as planned but the party was successful and Vindir earned the moniker Vindir the Bloodless for his duel with a Goliath caravan guard. They later visited Coldbrew Chemists and gained insight into the location of several Eldar in Arenhal. The decided they would initially investigate the Eldar captured by the Thieves Guild but first the party decided to find the werewolf terrorizing the city. Vindir opted to turn in for the night while Edgar and Karina followed the scent of the beast within the city. They ran into Azlyria on the way and found themselves in a store near to Jin's house. The group questioned the shopkeepers until they discovered that one of the shopkeepers was actually the werewolf. Set upon without Vindir the part fought had and manipulated the other shopkeepers to help them fight off the beast emerging victorious. Deciding it was better to vacate before the other shopkeepers shrugged of Edgar's magic they grabbed what they could from the werewolf corpse and fled.
The following day Vindir set off to find the entrance to the Thieves Guild while the other members stocked up. Vindir was able to find the entrance from one of the city guards posing as an inspector. The party finally met Vindir at the entrance to one of the city guard towers with the entrance. Just inside the door they met a green thieves guild member Kerv who believed they were hired to deal with a Gnoll infestation in the guild. A short conversation later the party (Vindir) convinced Kerv that we was supposed to join the part in their exploration of the guild. The party delved into the old, unused, side of the guild. They moved carefully into the city underground until they came across the grizzly scene of some fight but triggered a trap while investigating. Water began to flood into the underground and the party found themselves trapped behind thick stone doors. Edgar did what he could to buy the party time by freezing the incoming water. Finally the release was discovered and the flooding ceased.
In the parties excitement they pushed forward a little recklessly and the rogue Kerv suddenly found a javelin in his chest. The Gnolls had finally been found. The gnolls fought to the last but were overwhelmed by the parties assault. After a brief rest the party pushed deeper into the underground. They found a tunnel and surmised it's how the Gnolls broke in; they also found a door braced from the wrong side. The quietly removed the bracing and open the door and stared face to face with a slumbering Bulette. They quietly prepared a synchronized attack on the beast and defeated it quickly before casualties were incurred. Moving forward the party found the remains of more dungeon delvers and another set of locked doors. They found a crossbow bolt mentioned by Kerv that was given to help deal with a guardian in the guild. They investigated the massacre and using the magical locks opened the old stone doors leading to the new side of the guild.
They moved some kind of throne room and were quickly set upon by not one, but two guardian constructs. Karina was able to quickly handle one with the magical crossbow bolt. Azlyria manipulated the other one with some illusion magic while the rest of the part took the construct down. With the guardians handled the party pressed on. They came upon more Gnolls. One fled leaving it's partner in a pit trap. Edgar and Karina helped the Gnoll out only for Vindir to smite it with his hammer, killing it. The party began to traverse the pit when they came under attack from the dark halls ahead. Vindir charged forward to meet the assailant. Karina attempted to help Vindir as he was effectively blind in the darkness but accidently made him an easy target. The Gnoll continued fighting scoring several hits before finally being killed. A little worse for wear the party nonetheless pressed forward until finally finding a place to catch their breath.
After their rest the pushed forward again meeting the remaining Gnoll host and some Demonic form leading them. Their focus and numbers brought them out victorious again at which point they integrated the demonic figure who was only partially tethered to the material plane. They didn't learn much but discovered the demon knew of the group and swore their paths would cross again before Edgar completed banishing the being. After their fight they found the guild master Daleha and the eldar Eliza and chatted for a short time. It turned out Eliza wasn't a prisoner to the guild but an actual member. She was saving money to hire Bondsmagi to extract revenge on the Grey elves. For their work handling the Gnoll infestation they were rewarded by Daleha with money and a magical item from the guilds stores.
