  • They meet Sister Bronwen, who informs them that the mission is to attempt to capture alive some bulette pups. Nudibranch is an expert tracker and hunter, who has located a mother bulette and will be able to guide the party to that location.

  • The party after some preparation and negotiation with Sister Bronwen, set out on the adventure, with Sister Bronwen and a band of Unshorn accompanying them. As they approach the location described by Nudibranch, she heads off in a different direction with the Unshorn, informing the party that once the earth starts rumbling, they will know that the distraction is active. They will also know once the earth stops rumbling that the bulette has destroyed the wagons and is returning to its nest.
  • The plan goes as described, with the party waiting for the distraction from the thumpers and the mother bulette to leave and then attacking the bulette pups. They are able to subdue two of them but one is killed. They then realise that the thumpers have stopped vibrating and decide to escape with the two subdued bulette pups.
  • The mother bulette returns but decides to stay and protect her remaining pup rather than follow the party, which allows them to escape with the two unconscious bulette pups.
