The remaining party members were unconscious for a couple of days. When they awoke they found two others imprisoned with them. Nimora, a woman of aquatic lineage; and Rainh, a very scary, aggressive woman. Laertes and Valaris shared a cell, Killrath and Nimora shared one directly across from them, and Rainh –probably for good reason– was locked up by herself.
Laertes immediately went to work picking the locks on his cell. After freeing everyone, and receiving a death threat. They found an incapacitated guard and an open cell in the other wing of the floor. Downstairs they came across two guards who were easily fooled and dealt with. A map showed they were headed towards an arctic continent. They found keys that allowed them to retrieve their equipment and items. In the northern room of this floor they crossed paths with Mylvian again. Mylvian told them of additional boats that were kept tethered on the lowest level of the barge. She instructed them to ready one of the boats and to wait for her.
Downstairs they got attacked by a group of guards just after discovering two boats tethered up. While the others were fending off the guards, Valaris went to prepare the boat for departure by severing the tethers. After the fight Laertes went to open the Capstan.
About this time more guards showed up. Laertes heard something that piqued his interest and rushed over to assist. In the other room he found Mylvian at the other capstan, wielding a mace, and being advanced upon by a squad of guards. Rainh realized that Mylvian was in trouble and ran after Laertes, arguing with Valaris the entire time.
A bit later, Mylvian shouted at Leartes to go back to the boat, smashes the capstan so that the grating can’t open, and jumps in the water, followed by several guards. Laertes and Rainh unwillingly return to the vessel and the group sets sail.
