The heroes fought their way through Deadhold, attempting to navigate the city with as little notice as possible.
One evening as they slept, the heroes were ensnared in a shared dream. In the dream, Zirithian himself challenged the heroes to prove their worth to him. Each hero had to show Zirithian, through skills, or attacks, that they were worthy of facing him. During the dream, Zirithian made it clear to the heroes that regardless of the outcome, Matron Urlvrain would betray them in the end.
