    • The body of the fallen god has melded into the side of mountain with the steam-powered sword of the shaper who killed him stuck through his body and the side of the mountain. Fankorian technicians and spellcasters have not been able to remove the sword.
    • Worshippers of Frey have also gathered hoping for any sign from their fallen god.

  • Sillfer offered secret new technology and that he was being hunted by Fankorians, but Invectorus was not convinced and ordered his crew to move on.
  • A couple hours later three flying shapers came by looking for a downed balloon. They said they were with the Fankorian Fifth Air Legion.
    • The crow’s nest saw mostly unmarked, grey shapers with the designation “L5” marked on their shoulders.
  • Invectorus informed them that they had heard from a downed ballooner, but did not find his location.
  • The shapers thanked him for the information and flew on.
  • When the shapers flew by some of the other party members remember from the war that designations of “L+number” designate Fankorian government research labs (Lab 1, Lab 2, etc.) though they often had other markings as well.
