Upon return to Ursina, the adventurers are congratulated by Abbott Renwick for destroying the ghoul. They suggest in unison that they never actually saw its body. Their celebration is interrupted when a Scythian dragon knight crashes outside the abbey. The knight says that his platoon was hired by a town named Overlake to defend them from an encroaching hobgoblin army. The party rushes to Overlake to defend the town.
The Fire Beetles were first discovered in the caves beneath Fort Phrygia in Overlake.
