A deal was struck between 'The Drow' and the adventurers, freedom for himself and his companions in exchange for aiding the Water Barons in escaping the volcaone. Eventually the adventurers completed the Water Spirit's game and were released from the volcano. True to their world the adventurers released the remaining members of the Dark Blades.
