The party entered into what once was a beautiful cavern system, but was now a nightmare. The bugs were everywhere, the clicking nonstop, and the miners were all dead and reanimated attacking with pick axes or bare hands. It was a hard journey, with poisonous enemies and larger bugs. When going deeper, Sandy got scared and ran off, Sunny started chasing her in an effort to get her back. He chased her all the way back to Nim where they were captured. Both Carter and Sandy were taken away, along with every item the Malner had. He was jailed, discovering that a lot of Nim’s soldiers had died going after the party. Sunny escaped, but was unable to retrieve anything, including Carter and Sandy who were left up to an unknown fate. He rejoined the party, and they pressed on, until they came upon The Six who had set up a campfire. They were about to confess about their involvement in the outbreak, when Dropkick suggested that they eavesdrop instead. They learned that Council’s Blade Crisalis intended to kill the party, because if word got out that The Six had gotten help, then their titles would never be restored. After pressing on, the two groups finally met. When trying to talk, Crisalis stabbed Sunny in the back, wounding him. This started a battle. In the confusion, Barbus noticed Shadow Drove begin to cast a spell. Attempting to stop him, Barbus smacked him against a wall, killing him. Crisalis began to cry, and The Six fled, but not before Knight Albanus hesitantly revitalized Sunny.
