Retameron assign Sir William, one of his knights, to help the Crew with the Red Bull. Malekith lends them a steam-powered cart and gnome driver so they can get to the Wastes before nightfall.
The group uses invisibility powder to try to sneak up on the mind flayers, but they are detected anyway. Before they can defeat the mind flayers, the Red Bull shows up.
Brecaryn and Josy had chosen "defense" with the Essence of Frost so when the Red Bull attacks, a wall of ice protects them. Those who picked "attack" are able to actually hurt the Red Bull.
Instead of dying, the mind flayers bodies sink into the mud and form a tentacle monster that almost drowns Flerm.
After multiple attacks, the Red Bull abandons this form for its true one - that of a fire elemental. It attempts to set everything on fire. The group finally defeats it by staying in a group behind Josy and Brecaryn and advancing on the elemental. Their combined Essence of Frost is able to destroy it.
Leento shows up with a baby unicorn. He tells the group to take it to the pixies on Malta Woods.
The pixies take the unicorn but ask the Crew to help defeat the trolls that have been menacing them. The trolls they encounter are all strange. One has 2 heads. They kill all the trolls and release some captured pixies. There is a bit of a break in the group when Snow tells them to let a retreating troll live, but Flerm, Alana, and Lieralyn kill it anyway.
Alana finds a pair of gloves and puts them on. They're Cursed Gloves of Clumsiness and they can't be removed.
