After so many months, Carl, the entrepreneur brings good news that the jetpack the RDM invested in is ready and is paid off. They head to the bank to collect their royalties. 106 can’t enter because there’s a bouncer outside the bank restricting the access of any warforged. 106 decides to investigate by peering over a wall, witnessing a rally and a poster of Justice Gunner Kai on the wall. The RDM collect 100 gold from their investments, and bump into Iria d’Orien, who asks the mercenaries for their help. She wants us to retrieve a man named Perran who was exhiled from Karnath from the lightning rail train at Galohold station. They head to the nearest station and hop a train.
They arrive in Gatherhold, a small town in the desert next to a lake. The enclave at the house Orien is across town. Along the way, Edron stops into a local bar to talk to the bartender while 106 and Rhygar check out the train station. Abacus heads into the tent village and is taken in by a hospitible, friendly halfling woman. 106, Rhygar and Edron buy tickets for the next train to Karnath, which they presume Perran to be on. Before the train arrives, Rhygar changes into a mechanic to see if he can learn from other workers how to detach a rail car so that they can go along with their plan to extract Perran from the train. Edron overhears two halflings talking about Teefling (Devil men) while paying a man to have horses meet up with us at the rendezvous point. The train arrives, and they all get aboard. Abacus sits in first class with 106 a couple of rows away. Edron, not knowing 106 bought tickets, sneaks on board the train with the two halflings he met, but they turn on him knock him unconscious. Rhygar changes into a conductor and checks everyone’s tickets. He see Perran sleeping on the train.
Jori, one of the halflings tie up Edron in the storage car, while Abacus and 106 make their way on top of the train and prepare their surprise attack. Rhygar enters the room as a minstrel as a misdirection, while 106 detatches the storage car private caboose so that Perran is no longer attached to the train. 106 and Abacus then enter the car with Edron and begin fighting the halflings trying to save Edron. Rhygar and Abacus are fucking awesome and kill Jori and the beastly man that entered the room to fight the RDM. The chase one of the halflings who’s carrying Perran onto the train, where he pulls a parachute and is flown off the train onto the ground. The RDM notice that the other halflings were wearing backpacks, so they put them on a parachute off the train as well and meet up with the halfling and Perran. 106 kills him and start talking to Perran.
Shortly after, a Teefling and a half-ling appear and start attacking the mercenaries. The halfling turns out to be Paldron Narvos, Edron’s cousin from the Plains. Paladron shortly notices this and stops fighting, but takes off immediately. The mercenaries return Perran back to D’Orien in Sharn and are granted 400 gold.
