Upon exiting the mines of Golden Rush, Mac received a Sending from Randall Thay congratulating them on a happy holidays (it being the season and all), and to return to Corneria for some gifts. Knowing that they would need to return to Corneria at some point to return Jaynus to life (especially via a True Resurrection to maintain his mind and body), they debated on the treasures they have collected, a conflict of interest sparking between Razeil Kashar and Macronian (the latter offended Razeil would keep a piece of treasure for his own purposes instead of selling it to help raise Jaynus). Concerned at where to do next, Razeil contacted Pelor via Commune and asked if he was seen in a dimmer light for his actions towards Jaynus, to which Pelor replied, “Yes.” Other questions on what he should do to continue on were asked as well, including if Randall Thay could help them to their goals, to which he was given, “Perhaps.”
Eventually making a decision, they left the next day via Teleport of Marria, and were greeted by Randall in the midst of conversation with Sig Ollivander, a grey elf who had relations with Garland Madaras. Randall immediately suggested they join forces to help Garland out. Immediately after introductions, Randall shouted, “Happy holidays!” and gave them their gifts: a sizable amount of gold and a Staff of Divination.
