The party eventually found their way to Silver Spring. It turns out the treasure map/riddle they found was an invitation to a hastily organised treasure hunt by Chief Toramund, the chief of the Silver Hand tribe. There was a 100gp reward for whoever could find an heirloom that was buried in the desert. When it became apparant that it was either a wild goose chase or that there was not enough information, the party decided to ignore the trivial treasure hunt and move on to Tyr.
On the way back, the group defeated a party of raiders who had a picture of Ichtaca. Upon reaching Tyr the group were immediately taken to the Golden Tower, the palace of the Templar-King. Along with Templar Ratebourne, the party described EVERYTHING they had experienced and knew since arriving and departing Ree’at.
Tithian told the party that he believes the Sarcophagus is what he sent the expedition to look for. Recognising the party’s talent in staying alive and their ingenuity in bringing the Sarcophagus back to Tyr, Tithian asked them to return to the council room in the morning where he would divulge more information on the nature of the expedition.
In the meantime, he asked the group to investigate the obvious information leak which allowed the Halfling Scouts of Urik to ambush the caravan.
After doing some investigating, the party encountered a young tower servant who claimed to relay information to a man in the Artisan’s District. Being lead by the youth, the party came across Xalos the Stonecutter, a prominant figure in post-Kalak Tyr. Xalos, while being an information dealer and half-arsed spy for Urik, said he had no idea what the expedition was actually for, asides treasure hunting.
