The party returned to the city of Fallford without any trouble at the gates and made their way to the Muck Block. This part of the city is known for its slums, wooden walkways above the heaps of slow moving grime and waste which flows out of the city by use of large drain pipes. Dallas’s "Guests were instructed to meet in a specific section of the Muck Block; the party arrived on schedule but found no guests in sight. The party positioned themselves in the best set-up they could and awaited for the guests. An hour behind schedule, the guests emerged through a large drainage pipe and spotted the party.
Caslon and Kendy informed the guests of their mission to escort them back to Dallas and the guests agreed. Within seconds of the information being exchanged, a large squad of Goliaths appeared from down a street and confronted the party. The Goliaths wanted the guests handed over to them, but the party refused. A battle erupted with Deathsap and Dara battling two Goliaths on a rooftop, Caslon fighting another in the grime and sludge, Syxen and Leogold fending off multiple Goliaths on the wooden walkway acting as the front-line, and Foopooz managing the guests while throwing in some support Acid Orbs where possible.
One of the VIPs, an older human male, leaped forward into the combat without heading Foopooz’s warning and killed a Goliath. Caslon finished with his first target and looked to Leogold for battle tactics only to see his party leader in danger. The other two VIPs attempted to flee from the sludge pools and one was struck by a Goliath attack nearly killing her. This human female ran frantically in an attempt to escape requiring Foopooz to close-line her with her staff in order to stop her. The final VIP, a young human male, shouted for the female VIP to listen to the Drow and follow directions.
Dara and Deathsap were battling fiercely on the roof of a Dwarven building and managed to finish off two Goliaths, one of which was knocked off the roof and fell onto the street below. On the front-line, Syxen used his Paladin abilities to hold one Goliath as his target while Leogold engaged two at once using the power of The Last Right (Axe of Falgar). The old human male VIP joined the battle on the front-line and engaged a Goliath; in the exchange of swords and axes, the old man was impaled by the Goliath’s Longsword. The Goliath lifted his blade and pushed the old man’s body off of his sword with his foot and the old man’s body fell limply into the sludge pools.
The remainder of the battle saw Syxen, Deathsap, Kendy, and Leogold eliminate the remaining Goliaths while Dara and Foopooz kept the remaining two VIPs alive and provided additional support. Once the battle was finished, dozens of Fallford city guards appeared and surrounded the party. The guards had captured the female VIP who had ran off near the end of the skirmish in an attempt to hide. Leogold donned the Viceroy token and spoke with Antonius, a guard who the party had helped acquire tickets for in an earlier quest. The party was free to go and the bodies of the dead Goliaths where examined by the Dwarf guards. Two Goliaths escaped into the night but the city guards were hot on their trail when the party began to leave the scene. Syxen went back into the sludge pools and collected the old man’s body to bring back to Dallas and hopefully give him a proper burial.
The party arrived at the front door of Dallas’s shop, and brought the VIPs inside including the body of the old man. It was revealed that these three individuals were all that remained of the Consortium’s leadership: the young man – Jaden Fullhand, the young woman – Tania Zeal, and the deceased old man – Dent Shamshel.
