Not in this city. The high priest has decided to sacrifice the outsiders to desalinate the lakes. The heroes have decided to free the prisoners.
The heroes attempt to make a sneak attack on the guard post holding the children of the outsiders. Unfortunately the hissing of velociraptors gives away their position. The are engaged by a pair of dragonborn guards who light their cart on fire and attack. One guard is downed but the other, a summoner, manages to escape into the guard post and warn the other guards.
Our heroes pursue the summoner, through a small armory, and encounter a pack of guard dogs. They quickly retreat and prepare to defend themselves against the dogs in a narrow corridor instead of the open basement.
