Parting ways with their beloved cleric, Vox Machina is now adrift in a strange and unfamiliar city. With heavy hearts, they wander Vasselheim in the Braving Grounds District, home to the worshipers of Kord, the deity of battle and strength. Fittingly, Grog soon finds himself in a fighting pit, duking it out with as tough an opponent as he could ever wish for. Later, the party spots an attacking beast high on the city walls, and true to form, Vox Machina rushes to help. Following the fleeing creature off into the dense forests outside the city, they find their prey and a whole lot more.
