After a night in the Trumpet Inn, the party collects the painting of Ranald and takes it to the docks to find a suitable container to safely transport it in. There, a pair of strangers selling pots and pans make a gesture at Alric that they last saw in Altdorf. One of them shakes his hand, leaving it stained with purple ink, then they disappear into the town. The barge stops as night falls at the end of their first day of sailing down river to Marienburg, and after dinner everyone suffers odd symptoms and passes out. They wake up to find many items stolen from them, with their only positive lead being a scrap of parchment marked with the same symbol seen on the warning note found in Elvyra Kleinestun‘s house. Further down river, the Carroburg Thieves’ Guild is unable to help. Eventually, in Marienburg, the painting is delivered to Hans von Kleptor, who knows nothing of the warning symbol, has some leads about the purple hand symbol, and also asks the party to investigate a murder.
