Jasper quickly leaves from the rail station to care of personal matters once arriving in Brenholde. Meanwhile, the rest of the party meets with the attendants Flypps spoke with during their trip and arrange a meeting with Lord Hansell.
Lord Hansell makes the party personal guests at his keep for their heroic deeds on the train, and offers to get them an audience with the king in exchange for leading a security detail for his daughter’s birthday celebration ball. Hansell explains that recent events in the city have been attacked by infiltrating goblins, and wants to ensure his daughter’s celebration is safe. The party agrees to the terms, and surveys the keep for possible points of entry.
