The party pushes through the halls of the Daedalus, continuing their assault. The fight attack ends with a spectacular conflict between the remaining Tailors, and the Vulpes Black Tails. Descending upon Maki and Elsbeth, the Vulpes proove why they should be feared, wielding massive strength and size, but are cut down by a combination of blade and magic, and the heroes working together to support one another.
Bad Apple!! retrieves her missing companions (a mechanical wolf, cheetah, and owl) leaving her beyond grateful, and the party begin their return to Stormreach.
While traveling back, Elsbeth finds a clue among the documents she’d liberated; The Tailor, an entity whom she is unfamiliar with, but who is recognized around an outsider. Maki secludes herself, rattled by the encounter, while Kolt studies the weapons they retrieved from the Master Tailor Gunners, an intricate pistol with more unique parts than anything before.
Once returned to Stormreach, the party begin preparing for the next outing but not before mingling with their allies. Elsbeth informs Riot she’d like to start an expedition into Shaazarak, but he tells her people are already prepared to go- they just lack the current personnel to make it happen, and advises her against setting out too hastily. Bloodess informs Karne that she’d like permission to use group funding and a small team to convince a potential captain to join their forces, to add another ship to their growing fleet. Meanwhile, Viral sets up a small wager with Kolt, putting his subterfuge to the test against Kolt’s line of sight, more for pride than any sort of winnings, and Edge requests to study the strange firearms that were returned with the group. In her own roundabout way, Æoriel checks in on Maki, encouraging her to return to the world of the living rather than wallow as she has been.
