Tellazar continues his identifications while Corthen attempts to get the cursed sword removed from his grasp. Corthen gets 300 gold coins from the party treasury, 250 gold coins from Whitlowe, and 200 more from Silvaris to cover expense of intervention of the Tymora. The priests say prayers to remove the sword, but it does not work. They tell the moon elf that the sword he possesses must bear a greater curse. They inform him that nothing short of wish magics or divine intervention can remove the sword from his hand. The rest of the party tell Corthen that he does not have to repay them for the failed prayer expenses.
