Like their companions before them, Keyleth, Vax, and Tiberius make their way to The Slayer's Take. Arriving shortly after their friends' departure for the Vesper Timberlands, the trio are introduced to the rest of their own hunting party. Along with Brother Kashaw, a driven and mysterious young cleric, and a hardened dwarf by the name of Thorbir, the group receives its mission. There within the very walls of Vasselheim itself, they are to track down and kill an elusive Rakshasa that has been preying on wealthy travelers. With a little poking about in the city streets, they conclude that their only thread of information leads to the Velvet Cabaret, an exotic establishment in the Quadroads District.
