The party soon learned Kaldras’ true intentions: selling them into slavery! The party clashed with the elf, his kin, and two kank spitters long enough for Tellemon, captain of the Altaruk city guard, to stop the fighting. After hearing both sides of the story, the captain ordered the two groups to settle their differences in the arena with a game of Coins in the Coffer. The heroes handily won the game, though not without a few scratches and a late intercession of aid by Kaldras himself. Tellemon paid the party the wages owed to them by the elf, and he also gave Peren a magical longsword as reward for their performance in the games.
