When the adventurers came to, Nyarthep the Naga had a task for them. The pools it guarded were portals to the Elemental Plane of Water, by which pools in other parts of the world could be accessed. One particularly distant pool would bring them close to the Monastery of Elemental Order in the Skylands of Hyracanum where seven sacred treasures were waiting for the party to steal them.

To help them breathe underwater for the long swim, Water Weirdlings had been implanted inside them, wrapped around their brains, threatening to constrict if they didn’t obey. If they weren’t removed in three days, they would anyway, so they were obviously there to enforce compliance and urgency.

With no choice, the adventurers swam as guided by one of the Naga’s Water Elementals to a pool which exited upon an island of rocks floating in the sky miles above the discworld. There they waited for a skyboat from the monastery piloted by a monk collecting their daily water and, coached by Nyarthep, told a series of lies to gain his confidence and sail back to the monastery with him.

Master Waitani of the Monastery of Elemental Order was not convinced by the story he was told and dismissed them back to the Aquaportal. Zabrina then charmed Brother Jakim to let the party have the boat and wait for them to return while they sailed back to steal the seven treasures.
