Coimaedai found himself to be running for his life, naked, through an unfamiliar jungle holding a platinum idol of a Dragonborn, and didn’t recall how he got there. He was being chased by a dozen angry natives with spears and blowguns and had a dart in his arm. He was discovered by the rest of his team, and Guunhild, Quetzalkiith and “The Six,” a band of halfling slingers, held the natives at bay. Guunhild took the idol that had belonged to her family and the team returned to their ship where Captain Langdon punished them for failing in their mission to trade with the islanders. Coimaedai discovered that he had been captured and drugged, and that was why he had no memory.
Out of desperation, the party traveled to the coastal Pirate town of Khalidor in the Laerduvian Archipelago, looking for work, where they were directed (by a friend of the Captain, Salvana Wrafton of Wrafton’s Inn in Winterhaven, Nentir Vale on the mainland) to seek a missing dwarf prospector (Kavalar Coppernight) on Targ Island who had gone in search of a strain of precious ore. The party arrived at the island with no other options for work, and discovered a band of kobolds guarding the entrance to the excavation site. The party jumped the fence and assaulted the kobold force, and nearly lost Coimaedai, but were successful. They are now standing at the brink of a mine shaft with a dirty rope ladder descending into the volcanic stone.
