The party travels east on the Lightningrail searching for a target called One-Eyed Wilbur, of which they know virtually nothing. Their journey is interrupted when they're attacked by the Rusty Raiders, a group of Warforged looking for gold. During the fight they not only rescue the passengers of the Lightningrail but also discover that the cores of the automatons explode upon defeat. After dispatching of the Raiders the party commandeers the zepplin they rode in on.
Among those saved by the party was a rich Tabaxi that Baar'dargo recognised as being part of a wealthy trading caravan.
