The party made it to the gates of Vallaki, hoping to get Ireena to safety, but what awaits them inside?  Is Ireena truly safe anywhere she goes?  And what is going on with the Cleansing Hand?  Are Kent and Ferguson somehow tied to the same organization?  We shall see where their adventure takes them, and hopefully that is far from TPK land.

Seems like the party cleared out the first section, but will greed drive the party to death? And what IS Hackinstone's real purpose for this mission? Is there something he's not telling us? Probably, because what's a story without some type of twist? That's just how narratives work these days, come on now.
