About week has passed since the events of the previous episode. A caravan from Ironhill comes to the Ruins of Moonhold looking to help the refugees. In that time Orem and Randus have been working hard to understand the moon tower and help the people left alive in Moonhold. Because most of the town guard including, Torq's direct superiors were killed, Torq has decided to report to Orem. 

In the caravan Leon the driver sees the ruins of Moonhold and calls for everyone to get ready to help any of the people in need. To that end Leon asks Blacksmith Smith if he can go into the city and find a few people that might be willing to serve as guards for the Caravan. 

Meanwhile as Torq goes through the city looking for survivors he comes upon a building filled with melon sized geodes. Putting one in his belt and carrying another he goes and shows them to Orem and Randus who immediately take a interest in them and ask to see where Torq found them.

Going to the building which Torq found the geodes in, the party discovers that it looks like they crashed through the roof and are likely from the moon itself. One then cracks open and they find that it is, in fact, an egg. Torq is quick crush the monkey-lizard but the monster's death scream causes all the other eggs to hatch. 

Details of combat are below 

After the combat Smith talks to the group and they discuss his magic. He says it only manifested after the Lunar Event a week ago, and its still very wild and unfocused.

After that Smith invites Randus, Torq, and Orem to help join the caravan as guards which they accept and head towards Diamond Throne.
