The party arrives to Silver Spring Oasis (P187 DSCS). Gaston is searching for something, anything as long as it isn’t studying to become a Templar for Hamanu of Urik. Sable is curious about Gaston and follows his movements and Gaston eventually spots this dark follower. The Leader the Silver Hands, Chief Toramund, intercepts the two as they begin to cause a stir around his normally smoothly functioning oasis. People have never seen the likes of either humanoid except for Toramund. However, even Toramund is wary of the shade. He guides them into his finest inn to settle the problem between the two. He and the pair of travelers are escorted by 4 menacing elves armed to the teeth with wrist razors, throwing knives made of obsidian, and nets.
