Able to make good time back to Sharn with the elemental wagon, the party resupplies there. They find Gowron a job with House Lyrandar and warn him to be on his best behavior, and Trilla tries to deal with her feelings about Soriel with a drug called Sannish. As they travel around the city however, the group becomes aware that they are being watched; they suspect multiple groups, including House Cannith, the Cult of the Dragon Below, and the Emerald Claw are all keeping a close eye on them. Hoping to elude their adversaries, the party leaves for the small town of First Tower, known to many as the Gateway to Sharn, where they stay at a large inn called the Tower’s Gate. There they find some comfort and feel almost at home, despite Trilla’s growing drug problem and a pretentious noble brat trying to throw his weight around. They chase the man out and enjoy a pleasant evening.
