The fight continues, but the Burning Dervishes and the fire giant are no match for the party. A lot of talking and non-combat stuff during the rest of the session.

A short shouting match between Nanami and the nameless leader of the Burning Dervishes leads to another fight. Then Saito is raised by Aurin next day, then the party contacts Tarbish who must have seen them sow discord between the followers of Set and the Burning Dervishes of the Sultan. He promises them a permanent Nondetection from the Sultan’s scrying.

The party spends a few more days getting Baracus and his wife Najima out of the city, breaking the Geas and tricking the guards (Sense Motive +19).

The savages also sell both the Sword of Dawwad and the Frostbrand Baracus gave them in return for helping him escape… :)

As for Attaxa: I feel like pushing the issue… Will the party kill the smith or will it not? And if not, the demon will want to force Aurin to do her deed. At the same time, the party is trying to prepare a room where they can safely exorcise the demon and slay it. Tricky…

And I think I will prepare some missions for the Pyramid of Set.
