Nobody reads this, so I'm just going to summarize for myself: Party finds a boat, the Farsight, Brog argues with the first mate, they go to the fortress to ask if any ships are leaving, Fallister talks his way aboard a different ship with two casks of mead, turns out the captain (Slosh) is a drunk and takes a liking to Brog. The person guarding the boat is a bit cross-eyed.
They finagle a ring of free action from Captain Slosh, Tannis interviews first mate Jacque. They are warned about a giant squid. Karsh frees an Undine from a net. They start diving on the west edge of the crater. The Undine from the previous scene on the boat directs them to Kwalish's lair. They find the way barred by a giant hermit crab. They dispatch the crab with little difficulty. They enter Kwalish's lair and see a barrel like device in the center of the room. They also find a desk with the last words of Kwalish written on it. A soldier from a different boat enters the cave, having followed the group to the illusory rock wall. Brog decides to open the portal atop the barrel, finding 10 levers inside, seats for 6 people, and room for provisions inside the device.
