As the group hurries to keep in tow with Erik, Gort flies ahead to get a better view. Following the path it would take them to reach the best exit, he eventually heads over a few houses, devoid of lights and noise from within. Eventually the bird reaches the town square. Several different shops are seen, along with the tavern. Even with the night being so late, a lot of noise comes from within. There is music and singing, and several loud crashes and banging coming from within, the normal sounds of a tavern. In the center of the town square is a circular fountain, with a statue of the king of Merstial made of stone, holding a heroic pose.

A few unassuming natives to the town of Haark wander about, most leaving or going to the tavern, but two men also lean against the fountain. These two men wear tunics bearing the guards symbol.
