You try to figure out how to get the warforged titan out of the tower. You table that until later because you have more pressing matters to attend to, the Grand Melee.
As you are making your way through the tower you encounter the visage of Hestan. He has emerged from the broken crystal. He gives you one important clue regarding the Claw of Boareskyr and the Fang of Ukisor. They are both likely hidden in the Monastery of Ukisor in the Sunset Mountains. Not just he Fang as you suspected. The Zhents are digging in the wrong spot.
You make your way to the Grand Melee while Reif attempts to conceal the Horn of Veymar via alchemical means.
At the Grand Melee you greet the king and his court without offending anyone.
Dorn approaches Cardinal Riche Aplea and is absolved of his actions against Bishop Bandraddon. He is warned to look out for the vengeance of the Bandraddons however.
Reif attends the melee with Dorn and they are approached by Petturi Oldharp. Petturi (unknown to you at the time) poisons Dorn and steals the horn of veymar.
Kaldur fights and wins the Grand Melee and knocks out the Pereghost. He is a awarded a griffon’s egg. When it hatches he will be a member of the Griffon Guard. The king’s elite personal soldiers. Kaldur gives his favor to Shilindria Jattelan.
Reif follows Petturi after he left the tourney ground to an abandoned temple. Petturi is meeting with Semmemon. Reif kills himself with the spectral noose to get closer and overhear what they are saying.
