A halfling woman is chained to the wall, looking frail. "Who are you?" demands Krow, pointing her sword at her. "Lena!" she squeaks. She explains that she and her party were here to break a curse by destroying a relic.

Is the lie detected? Wisdom ability checks
Krow - fails
Elferen - succeeds

Elferen doesn't believe her. "Destroy it, eh? Very noble of you. First I've heard of a curse, and I listen to a lot of tales! Heard of a lot of treasure however". Lena sweats a bit. "Honest! Ahgoneste picked up this creepy dagger, then started acting weird!"

Has Ahgoneste sacrificed many? 50/50: exceptional no
  Ahgoneste hasn't got a chance to sacrifice anyone yet 
  - they've only just been fully controlled?

"I ran, but as I ran I forgot everything! Started coming back to me a few days ago - another group of treasure hunters found me. Broke me out of my mind haze! Rae! She might be still alive!" Lena explains that her old friends, Eitorik, Runvar and Bea, killed Rae's party, but kept Rae alive, for whatever reason that cursed dagger wants. While Lena is talking, and despite questioning looks from everyone else, Iambere unlocks Lena's shackles.

FQ: is Rae nearby on this level? 50/50: No
