At the break of dawn (10:00, remember that it’s dark here) the party arose and went into town. After some cursory searching the party found city hall in the center of town. Stealthily approaching and Hall, a simple civil building with a mail room and secretary office was found. Opening a large set of double doors they stumbled upon a Skull Lord in a courtroom, holding court over his minions: a Spirit Devourer, skeletons, and zombies. After a fierce battle the Skull Lord was destroyed and the Spirit Devourer vanquished.
A tortured spirit, released from the torture and imprisonment of the Spirit Devourer, lingered on to speak with the heroes, to thank them and warn them of upcoming trials.
