9th cycle, 29th day, year 5850
The Green Gems swing by the Cara tribe at the behest of Salazar. M'kono needs help, as the Great White is still at large, preying on the moon elves whenever they leave their village. And he is worried that continued failure to kill the beast will eventually cost him his spot as leader. And with the Cara tribe under pressure from other moon elf tribes which allegedly have allied themselves with returned Yuan-ti, that would be really bad for the people of Dorador.
After a few hours of "hunting", the Green Gems find the Great White, or rather it finds them. After a short but deadly battle, the dinosaur lies dead at their feet and they have the gratitude of a moon elf tribal leader.
