They spend the 9th and 10th recruiting more troops and arrive at Costvud on the 11th.
Rumors of a secret entrance don't pan out, but they do find a friendly golem buried beneath the castle. They retreat to Trevya to recruit more troops and are attacked by Pennant Zo Erigash who is roundly defeated. On the 14th, they return to Costvud and Himmel storms the castle. Banner Taeza Gulm is killed and Pennant Zo Erigash flees with less than a dozen Dogbloods, headed for Travgrave.
