While one group of Children of Blood deals with those who would harbor the Ashbringer, another faces off against the Red Bones, the rival mercenary gang of the Tyr caravan district. In an epic battle in the caravan district’s town square, Dorn, the leader of the Children of Blood led the Children to victory against their rivals.
Nearing the end of the battle, a massive explosion rocked the square. Turning, the Children witnessed the destruction of their home, Red Sands. Rushing back, they discovered that agents of the Ashbringer, the Toothcutters, had burrowed under Red Sands and blew open the basement vault to recover the dagger of Nibenay. The Children recover the dagger just seconds before the entire headquarters collapses in fire.
