Our heroes spent some time in the ruins deciphering what they could find in the various rooms and with what little information they could gather from the damaged and malfunctioning Ancient devices. It took time, but they managed to discern that this set of formerly-flying ruins were designed to both monitor and control the weather in the area — and if the weather at Isla Sola is no longer being controlled, will that mean more storms are on the way?
Regardless, the heroes gathered their loot and departed the ruins. However, they were met at the exit by a new companion, who helpfully alerted them to an ambush — the manticore was right above them! The creature attacked and attempted to scatter the group, but thanks to their tactics and skill, the monster was slain in seconds.
Our heroes got to know their new ally, also a crystalmarked individual guided here, and began the hour-long walk back to Sage Arrit’s home.
