The investigators, anticipating a fight at midnight, made a plan to attack the mysterious stranger who was to arrive at midnight. Instead of man, the party encountered two tree spirits which were finally destroyed by dousing the parties weapons in holy water. Ultimately, the group planned for another attack and this time encountered Karl Leblanc. LeBlanc was apprehended and interrogated. The party learned that Blake was the one who hired the men to attack the Father and who had summoned the spirits. LeBlanc is a cult member of the Order of the Ancient Stone and he was there to take the stone. LeBlanc was put in the insane asylum. Upon touching the stone, Ellie got the sense that the stone was orienting her to the East.
