The group leaves the caves behind, catching Shayliss up on what they’ve been through in the meantime. They insist that they must save Justice, because of the piece of the Pontifex she has.
Shayliss explains just how difficult that task will be. If Justice is in the lair of a Shadow Lord, they’ll be up against a demigod of death, in a realm it controls. They are unlikely to survive the trip.
Shayliss has a map, and directs them out of the swamps, where they can catch an Airship to take them closer to the Shadow Lord, and Justice.
