Well it better be a powerful weapon because I get the feeling they will certainly be back! Now that Talmirian is with the tainted dwarf, I think we are going to be in a bit of trouble. Don't forget that Talmirian has some magical stuff we don't even know what it does. Talmirian has the staff, the headband, and a tome. I think by the time we come across them again, Talmirian will know what these items do. Beware people! If I were Grank I would be very afraid! I think I heard Talmirian say he was going to wear Orc tusks as a belt before he went into the riff.
I think the letter for Grank was more frightening then that.
