One morning, the party is woken early by an elderly maid. Noticing that Ameiko wasn’t tending to breakfast as she always does, the maid checked Ameiko’s bedroom. Inside, she found a note from Tsuto, Ameiko’s half brother. The note told Ameiko to meet Tsuto at the glassworks at midnight to discuss their father, who Tsuto claimed was behind the goblin attacks.
The party decided to investigate the glassworks, as Ameiko had now been gone for many hours. Inside, they found Ameiko’s father encased in glass; goblins cackled and cavorted around the room. Downstairs, Tsuto slept off some wine while Ameiko was bound in an adjacent room. Initially hostile, Tsuto was Charmed by Oleander and revealed a great deal of information. He was working with the goblins, specifically the Thistletop tribe. He was also working with Nualia, who was not killed in the fire seven years ago.

The party killed Erylium, the sinspawn, and the goblin, and destroyed the runewell by depleting all of its stored energy.
Before leaving the temple, the party had gathered an assortment of items:
