The Heralds recover the petrified crew of the barge but are forced to leave most of the supplies behind. Arriving at Tillman's Port the next day, they find the small village strangely quiet. A massive metal ship, pitted and rusted, sits at anchor off the shore.
Ned and Carl – two dock workers known to Aideen and Declan – help the party dock the barge but are otherwise silent.
A mysterious robed and bandaged figure with a massive greatsword confronts the party, insisting that the twins travel with him to meet whoever is here for them on the ship. The being insists that the rest of the group remain with the barge – which causes an argument but the twins eventually convince the party to remain while they go with the figure.
More beings dressed like the one escorting the twins seem to roam freely around the village, some leading strange part reptile part chicken creatures on leashed.
The twins are brought to the ship and lead to the bridge where they meet Sardsalk, one the same tentacle faced creatures the group saw in the Paris Laboratory. Sardsalk demands their surrender for study in order to end whatever is being done to their mother at "DOSA".
Meanwhile, in the village, the rest of the group decides to make an move and breaks for the shore, hoping to steal a boat to reach the metal ship.
A fight breaks out on the ship between Sardsalk and the twins, culminating in Sardsalk nearly piercing Aideen's skull with its tentacles. Just as the twins seem to be put under control, Iliken, Gareth, and Desmond arrive at the deck of the ship, starting a conflict to free the twins. Their foes are revealed to be similar to the Githzerai encountered on the Abyss, though more warlike and less introspective.
Sardsalk unleashed it's terrible Mind Blast, leaving Iliken the last of the rescuers standing, but he perserveres. Aideen is released by her captor and told to seek at "The Museum" for her brother and her answers…
