The pieces finally in place, the wedding between Rhegar and Isara finally gets into full swing. Yu’in, having overheard evil Lord Dracarys’ plans to commit mass genocide at the reception after the 4th course, meets with the rest of the members of Team Trust and warns them of the plan. Slink and Rayne, still posing as wedding caterers, attempt to poison Dracarys’ first course, but Dracarys’ enormous black-armored bodyguard, Blackheart, stops the incoming food.
Quinn, now hiding in plain sight among the mask-wearing wedding guests, spies Rhegar and Isara at the head table, with Dracarys nearby with Blackheart. Another table seats the members of the Racial Council (one representative from each race present). Something about the Human representative gives Quinn a chilling feeling, but he can’t place his finger on why. The second course is served.
The commotion turns to an uproar when a wagon wheels in with the words " Harry the Horse and Mr. Kyte‘s Traveling Family Fun-Tyme Circus!" scrawled on it. Out jumps a strange horse-man who announces himself as Harry the Horse, and assures the crowd that they are about to see some of the most amazing creatures they have ever witnessed. From out of the cart come Harry’s three “freaks”: an albino monkey, who does strange acrobatics using an odd hand-held machine which fires what appear to be sling bullets, performs first, and the crowd erupts into laughter. The third course comes out…
A small, meek-looking approaches next, wrapped in chains and bindings. He holds a potion to his lips and drinks, and moments later, begins growing and transforming into a hulking beast, which proceeds to fly into a rage and nearly attack several guests. Harry the Horse uses an electric zapper to contain the beast, who slowly calms down as the fourth course arrives.
Communicating through a Message spell, Team Trust frantically tries to figure out how to avoid catastrophe. As the food arrives, a strange jack-o-lantern creature comes from the circus cart.
“This is it!” announces Yu’in. “We need a diversion…We need…fire!”
The group springs into action. Rayne and Slink use the kitchen stoves to start a fire, which Quinn and Yu’in add their own magical fireworks to, creating a general panic in the reception hall as the flames creep out into the main seating area. People begin running, but as they do, several figures come crashing in through the windows and start attacking the guests. It appears the entire Racial Council is the first to perish, save for the Human, who unmasks and reveals himself to be Mad Moodeey. The man who seems to be leading the new arrivals yells, “Members of The Pack! Kill them all!” A quick Knowledge check by Lute reveals that The Pack is supposed to made up of peaceful animal rights activists…so why were they murdering innocents?!
Team Trust joins the fray, fending off The Pack as well as Blackheart, who corners Lute. Slink confronts The Pack leader, who he unmasks to reveal his old lover and now hated enemy, Jasper! After a brief scuffle, Jasper vanishes. During the battle, Rayne notices her old tutor from her time in Elven royalty, Victus, fighting against The Pack as well.
Yu’in turns just in time to see Rhegar escaping out a back exit with Isara, while Dracarys does some subtle magic (which no one seems to notice amidst the chaos) and creates a giant dragon made of fire which blocks the main exit. Slink runs back into the kitchen and reveals his identity to Torblud, desperately asking for a way out. Torblud, in terror, explains that the kitchen has an emergency exit, and Team Trust abandons their fight to help usher as many party guests out as possible.
Screams of terror and pain echo through the hall as Team Trust, assisted by Torblud, scramble through the secret kitchen exit, down into the sewers…
