The team arrive in Kodonia, with the essence reaver they killed in tow. This proves fortunate when they find that the only way to have any standing in Kodonia is to be a warrior and the only way to prove your worth is to present the rulers with an essence reaver corpse. As the dealer of the killing blow, Arrora is acknowledged by the city.
Leaving Arrora to prepare for her naming, the rest of the team go to meet Jakros, Darius’ friend. Jakros informs the group that their main advantage in exploring the tomb will be a map Darius and Jakros created on their adventures. Unfortunately, it is locked away in the city library. Urist and Mourn resolve to scout out the library whilst Gilly looks for another way. Savaros spends the evening playing cards in a tavern.
Come 1 am, Mourn and an armourless Urist, use the team’s new magic grappling hook to break into the library. Sneaking through the library without trouble, the pair approach the room where forbidden documents are kept only to find someone inside. Mourn attempts to acquire the map alone but is foiled when he realises the map is on the shelf in front of the room’s occupant. Mourn’s divine magic fails to force the man to walk away. The man tears the map apart when Mourn decides to explain what he is after. A fight ensues, Urist occupies the man whilst Mourn collects the pieces of the torn map. As Mourn escapes to the window, Urist knocks the man unconcious and teleports out of the building. Mourn leaps through the window as the library guards appear and both members of Team SSS make it away safely.
