In the sewers below the border between Firstbridge and Hammers, the party looks for the lost crypt of the Blackfriar. They battle a squad of Shades of Typhon thugs, apparently searching for the same thing. They find a homeless addict, cast aside by the Shades of Typhon after they had pressed him into duty as a lantern boy. The addict reveals his name to be “Mr. White”, and offers them a slug-like kesp, which he just found in the sewer. He claims they are edible. Deeper in, the party finds the vault of the Blackfriar’s crypt, ruins of the older city long-buried. They fight the Shades here too, as the Wash, a periodic flushing of the sewers, threatens to engulf them and possibly wash away the necklace they’re all seeking. In the end, the party wins the fight and finds the necklace without drowning.
