Hamilcar receives a message telling him that his nephew, Monte, is in danger. He has joined a fighting league and has progressed into the death match phase. The boys mother (Hamilcars sister) wants him removed from the competition. The Gnome Strike force and Abraham have been working on Keep defence. They pooled together some money to buy a Formian Relay. Djembe and Raz were sent with the money to purchase the relay (coincidentally from the same town that Monte is in).
The three of them travel together, deal with some bandits, but arrive safely. Hami gives Monte his Wyrdstone pistol for his first fight (against a cleric). For the second fight Hami assess the competitions weakness and passes it on to Monte. The final fight, Hami disguises himself as Monte and defeats his opponent.
Djembe and Raz scope out the stores who are selling the relay. They buy half of it and then get a store owner drunk and steal the other half (making a tidy profit). Hamilcar takes his nephew as his protege.
