The group sold what they had and bought their better gear. During their buying the Guild wanted to talk with them about a proposition.
They wanted the group not to find the Sword of Lies sought by the church, they also specifically asked them not to remove it, after all it had been placed there for a reason, a reason that the group could not get an answer from the guild but the Guild would increase their reward upon the Banewarrens being sealed. They also offered a better reward for dispatching the Beholder.
The group considered their options and considering they had money and far more experience, they all decided to go after the Beholder, with that in mind they bought specific gear aimed towards protecting themselves against attacks and weapons that were well suited for the task.
It was going to be risky, but hey they had a plan this time…..
