Shadow Absalom and Absalom have been at odds with each other, each detesting what the other represents. Rumors of Shadow Absalom preparing for invasion against the Material Plane counterpart have been told for decades.
The inhabitants of each plane's city do not take kindly to the citizens of the other. The people of Absalom target any undead or creature of the dark. In return, the people of Shadow Absalom find no issue in slaying the unfortunate souls who accidentally find themselves in the twisted streets of Shadow Absalom.

Hekrion, who had snuck away in the early morning, returned to Shadow Absalom, to deliver a letter from Airi and Iri in regards to the current state of their journies, and what they have discovered since they had parted.
Unfortunately, the King and Queen were not there, as they were busy investigating the planes, so he delivered the message, and gave a status report himself, explaining the awakening of Cthulu, and that Asa was out of prison.
