Come out of underdark. Met by guard and captain. Captain is pissed that Sim is dead, Mordecai reams into her because Sim was courageous and awesome. We head back to Violetcliff post-haste. We encounter Cliand on the way back and he has some mini-beholders with him. He wants his spellbook back and to kill Belarra.
Cliand’s body has:
Scroll of blight, potion, potion of mana.
There is a pot of green glowing stuff. It is an alter to tharizdun the god of madness. Also there are stones near the altar – Stones of Xuazal
