Upon departing the city Jarna finds herself approached by a middle aged gnomish man named Cusp Redfoot. He is hiring caravan guards for his gnomish caravan to Mulsantir and asked Jarna if she would be available for hire. He offers 2 gold pieces per day for compensation.

32nd Session Summary
9th of Hammer - The Year of the Serpent 1359 DR

At the Enraged Panda Inn, the group is finally reunited and begins to discuss their next steps when they are approached by a familiar face, Galvin returns with news from his month-long investigation in to the disappearance of Zair. He explains that Galvin had uncovered some information about an upcoming Thayan attack and guides the group through the city of Telflamm and in to a noble villa where someone wishes to speak with them.

A tall robed woman with tangled silvery hair clad in tattered black robes steps forward, "Greetings," she says, turning to the group. "I am glad to have you here. I am the Simbul, ruler of Aglarond." The Simbul motions for the others to sit and offers drinks before continuing. "I will be honest with you. My people and I are stretched far too thin by the Thayans. Something is going on within Thay's borders - some kind of internal conflict, which may have disasterous repercussions for the rest of Faerun. Their conspiracy against us has redoubled in recent weeks and we run from one crisis to another. Were there three of me I would still be too burdened with tasks!"

"Your friend, Zair, had uncovered solid information about a Thayan invasion of Rashemen. Mind you, the Wizards have invaded Rashemen dozens of times and been sent yelping back across the border, their tails between their legs. This time, however, the Thayans have come up with a new scheme, a scheme that may defeat the Iron Lord and his armies." The Simbul hands over a letter that was found in Zair's home which reads

"My Dear Lauzoril:
It is with great pleasure that I report the success of our mutual endeavor. Using the antiquated documents which you sent me last fall, I have finally duplicated the formulae by which the so-called “god-kings” of Mulhorand created their invincible gemstone golems.

These creatures, crafted of solid gemstone material, are as mindlessly loyal and efficient as our more familiar golems but appear highly resistant to magic, particularly that used by the hateful Rashemaar witches, and to the strong place-magic of Rashemen itself. It is my opinion that these two forces are most to blame for our lack of success during past invasions of Rashemen, and if they are even partially neutralized our warriors can easily crush the ill-disciplined berserkers and their savage chieftains.

To this end, I am sending you 100 gemstone golems now, and more
over the coming weeks. By the 15th of Alturiak, all should be in readiness for our invasion. As this is the middle of winter, our attack will have the added advantage of taking the enemy entirely by surprise, for our attacks have rarely come in these months.

With a quick victory over the Rashemaar in the Gorge of Gauros,
the entire land should be under our control in a matter of weeks. With this overwhelming victory to our credit, Szass Tam will suffer a major setback in his shameless attempts to seize absolute power in Thay. Hopefully, several major tharchs and at least one zulkir will be won over to our cause, enough to tip the balance in our favor, and against Tam.

I warn you, however, that a few minor problems still exist with the
gemstone golems. The most pressing is the fact that they require a circle of wizards to maintain control and direction. Without such a circle, led by a wizard of the greatest skill and magical might, they will wander aimlessly about and be unable to press the attack. Please keep this in mind during your invasion.

In closing, I salute you and your efforts to stop the mad schemes of
Szass Tam. If there is any further assistance I can offer you, please do not hesitate to tell me.

Sincerely, Zulkir of Invocation/Evocation and Tharchion of the
Priador,
Aznar Thrul"
