On September 12th, Year 6, Randall and Stephen have conversed, sharing their separate intelligence on a dragon attack on a gnomish traveler on the north road. Stephen had interviewed the traveler and believed he had encountered a drake while under the influence. The birds had informed Randall of the incident, calling it a dragon as well. Ragnvaldr joins them hoping to end the attacks.

While they discuss, a cry goes up from the norther walls and they rush there to see a dwarf and a halfling fleeing from the woods as a dragon swoops down on them. The herdsmen in the fields flee toward the city as the dragon catches the hunters and the grass starts to burn.
