50. The Last Prisoner
The party proceeds from the collapsed gathering of structures to the location of the final seal stone in the southeast quadrant of the complex. The group snuck into the lair of an overgrown version of the monstrosities infesting the area. Though the creature proved threatening with its necrotic attacks, it met defeat by the hands of the party, and its destruction subsequently destroyed the nearby seal stone. The adventurers then returned to the decrepit tower where the rest of the mages waited. During their rest, the Warden descended from the prison during André’s watch. It informed the bard of the unlocked cells, a secret passageway throughout Vorston Prison, and a cryptic message regarding the seal stone in the basement before it took its leave.
Later, when everyone had awoken, André shared his findings in greater detail. Ketn and Varris retrieved Dr. Surin Habernath and the rebel leader, Eldicai Verkanen from their cells. Then, upon returning the two prisoners to the rest of the mages, the adventurers, along with Marcel and Agent Cairm’virdel, made their way through Vorstone Prison using the secret corridors hidden behind the walls of the barricaded Warden’s office. They located Tycus but realized he was in the company of General Wittlache of the Ruby Division. The party further heard the General’s intent to remove Tycus from the prison, but ultimately, they remained hidden as the paladin left with the Rysmarckians. The adventurers then focused on retrieving the final Cloaks target, a fence named Bruno Dorset. After requesting some aid from Novos, they identified Bruno’s location via song. André teleported himself into the cell, made contact with the fence, and transported both of them back to their allies.
The adventurers made haste to return to the prison basement, but by the time they returned to the Warden’s office, Rysmarckian and prison personnel, including Victor Hughes, had breached the barricade to investigate the violent proceedings. The party attempted to rush through the basement. However, as the prison guard bore down on them, they cut down the present forces, though two mages and Victor fled the scene. The adventurers destroyed the basement seal stone, which triggered a steady rumbling throughout the prison. They then rushed to exit the building and usher the freed mages away from the tower.

"Infiltrating Vorstone Prison is a significant feat, and I am glad that our rescuers appear quite capable. Praise be to the great Mother's blessings."
