You make your way from wherever you decided to meet prior to the courtyard where you are intercepted by a steward and taken to Larhut’s chambers. You approach two heavy doors with the symbol of the arcane congress upon them that are being guarded by what appears to be a heavily armored wood golem. This one is fashioned from dark hardwoods and seems to be well sculpted. The steward knocks and the doors then swing inward. The room before you is well kept and large bookshelves line the walls. A few meters another set of double doors and off to the side a desk with a young woman peering at you all over a large open book. As the party fills the room she stands and asks you to wait while she tells the keeper that you all are here.
A minute or so passes before the young woman returns. She opens both doors and informs you that you may enter. Inside the room Larhut sits behind a large desk with floor to ceiling windows behind him giving an amazing view of the mountains [spell casters you notice a moderately powerful spell effect when you enter the rooms of Larhut because the rooms are well warded]. “Thank you for joining me” he says before standing and walking around his desk. “I have been frightfully busy since I learned of your fate beneath the mountain but I believe this crisis may be yet dealt with. For a queen’s ransom we have secured the creator of the objects you were carrying and will have him here in the starpeaks to fabricate new equipment. We are hiring two airships to bring him and his equipment here under heavy guard in two days. I can tell you that your services in this current matter are unneeded but Kelsin Dor asked me to relay his thanks and to tell you that if you have need of work he has found you all resourceful and hardworking and future employment is all but guaranteed. While you failed to deliver the equipment I, at the urging of the High Captain (i.e. Saul), have determined that the danger you’ve endured should be rewarded and so you may depart on any of the airships that come in two days time or wait one week until the fabrication is complete and take passage then. All of the costs of this travel will be paid by us.”
