(Coldwind 7 -
Now in Midtown, the group helped the queen build Midtown into a fortress worthy of the Queen, although the city still was tiny in comparison to the mighty Portraven. Although Zerek was able to identify many of the magic items the group had found in their recent journeys, he was baffeled as to why the Rod no longer pulled in any direction. he was able to discren that the Rod was weakened somehow, although it still retained it's magical abilities.

All they had to do now was go into the temple and rescue the slaves....
