Cale, Zira, Ozzy, Grimlock, and Aloric return to Cloverdale, and spend the rainy season doing various mercenary types of jobs. Aloric takes a break.
Cale, Zira, Ozzy, and Grimlock find work with Gorgeroth, heading into Mandor to explore an old Moriven/Shadar-kai outpost. At the outpost, they battle and defeat doglike demons, a lightning demon, a flying/gnashing/impish demon, a larger doglike demon with a bunch of little tree/roper type demon minions, and finally a stormshard that was controlling 3 gigantic, 4-clawed demons. They find a wild-magic zone at an exploded out section of the outpost, but after the battle with all the aforementioned demons, they decide to rest before continuing deeper inside.
