- Aeng charms giant rat using his harp. “Cheese!”… “Cheese!” (“What year is it?” “Cheese!” “The year of cheese.”)

- Through a door they hear the slaughtering of the school classroom, but when Herbert kicks it open the children were already dead and the orcs were stacking their bodies. But there was also a new door on the opposite side.
- Meet Candella and Duchess (who have the medallion — possibly theirs from the future? or the past?). “You’re right! You are from our future!” (Someone sold the medallion to them and told them they could loot the Palace. They came up to the second floor through a trapdoor instead of the stairs. Tell them that Dink’s has multiple meat-shops. Order of the Ninja Clerics: “We don’t like to speak ill of the dead.” Himbob’s name as head of the Halfling Mafia is not spoken.)
