Returning to the Constabulary the next morning, Sal informs the party that the Kron brothers were bailed out overnight by the deJuns. He has a new job for them, an easy one – supervising a garden party at the Saj estate, where there will be lots of free food.
At the party Sal introduces you to Count Blazen Stoe, one of the Coin noble house leaders. Count Stoe is having a problem with his son Sebastian. Sebastian has taken an absurd interest in a tavern wench and keeps running off to be with her. The count has had enough of it and wants the party to recover him, and maybe rough him up a bit to remind him of his responsibilities and how dangerous the south side of town can be.
The party tracked Sebastian to a dive bar called The Black Blade. After buying a round for the tavern, they learn from the proprieter – "Ma" – that Ilva is the name of the girl and she hasn't been around in a week. Ilva's friend Mixi, a half-elf who works at the bar, initially resists sharing information but then admits that she and Ilva used to attend meetings in Outsider's Ghetto that were positively cult-like. Mixi suspects that's where Ilva and Sebastian have gone.
The party locates the meeting shack and takes down the shack's guards only to have the building go up in flames!
