The silver egg hatches to reveal Siph, the ethereal Silver Dragon! Before disappearing from the Material Plane, Siph bestows Fire Resistance unto our heroes and explains about her “cousins”, the 4 remaining dark dragons (Green, Blue, Red, and Black) and her “siblings”, the light dragons which can be rescued upon destroying the evil dragons.

However, the townspeople alert the adventurers that if they take care of their werewolf problem, they will not report their presence to the Human Crown.
Team Trust begins an investigation and learns of several suspicious characters, such as the creepy boy named Lon, whose mother is hiding him away. Upon confronting the child and his brother, our adventurers are shocked to discover the head werewolf is not the boy, but the mother, who transforms into a hideous beast, along with several other townspeople, in the middle of the town square…
