The PCs render aid to Quinley by way of opening the abandoned tavern, and agree to sail to the Port Windermere, where Koulton Brightwind resides, to ask for aid in the morning. Their rest is cut short as the invading pirates attack before dawn. The PCs decide to take the opportunity to set sail immediately, and one the way, they realize one of the attacking vessels is the same they sunk, and, "Gary," waves as they sail by.
Other than an attack by Koa-Toa, the trip to Windermere is short. They convince Prince Brightwind to meet with them, who identifies the colors of the invaders as that of Captain Magwroth, who died along with his men in an attack on Mika Rockface some thirty years ago.
Prince Brightwind states he is curious about the news and wishes to protect his people, and that every other prince but Rockface has been attacked in similar manners in impossibly rapid succession. He cannot interfere with the machinations of more powerful princes and risk his precarious rule, but offers his fastest ship, then accuses them of stealing it, and calling his guards.
