After making some more money in the Mahbut Bazaar and meeting a rather obnoxious member of the confectioners guild, the three set there sights on the Weaponsmiths Guild in search of materials and further info to put Robs' plan into effect. Unfortunately soon into their trip the trio are captured by Strawmen air pirates. Once on board the priates' airship the gang mange to escape and seize control of the ship, and again make for the remote Weaponsmiths Guild hall.
