After discovering that Marionette was behind the excavation in the Underwater Cave she slayed Salem. A battle broke out and Marionette eventually fled, though may have won if not for Balthasar’s great horn.
After the battle they returned to Kenotaphion then traveled the Candlekeep. The Globe of the Water Elemental was stored there by Lady Regent Nevia.
Finkle had closed up shop as a result of threats from the Snake Man, a disciple of Marionette’s. Likely because of his assistance to the heroes.
Gruach was dispatched to slay Tomlin, Lynn Tomlinson and Alminster the Grey.
They now await the Funeral of Master Salem the Ghuul.
