During their trip home, Aegon and Sin were able to study the journal in their attempts to decipher the second location spell. Having regained the original journal, it also allowed them time to study the book itself.
Arriving in Sharn, the group was met by various diplomats and representatives. These representatives offered their thanks for deeds achieved while aboard the Golden Dragon.
