He spent some time in the city of Chessagol in the Vast, and boldly caroused for several hours at the Bloated Gargoyle Inn. Finally, the Royal Constabulary discovered him and tried to arrest him. Urthag fled across the rooftops of Chessagol, but was forced to drop Galathos. Urthag escaped and his sword was given to King Lamoth.
