We fly back to the Observation room. We enter as before. We go up the stairs to Khumarr's old suite. We go through the double doors, down the hall, through more double doors, into the room with the inert Jade Spider.

Igor harvests all the pieces of Jade using his longtooth dagger.

We climb the stairs.

Igor is in the lead, followed by Veracity.

When they reach the top of the stairs, they see a pack of Abyssal Ghouls. One of them looks at Igor (veiled as another Abyssal Ghoul) and says "greetings, brother," in Abyssal.

Igor doesn't understand, so Veracity speaks. "Greetings. We are on a mission for Kiaransalee."

We all enter the room. One of the ghouls looks at Veracity and asks "Why did you not take the shaft?"

"We heard noises on the stairs," says Veracity.

"Ah, very good," says the ghoul. "We heard nothing."

Igor reaches back and lowly draws out his greatsword and strikes at the leader.
